When it was built for Norwegian Cruise Line in 2010, the Norwegian Epic was the third largest ship in the world. The specs alone are impressive: 329 meters long, 61 meters height, 155,800 tons, 22 knots, 1,738 crew and 4,100 passengers. For all intents and purposes it was a floating small town. Crammed into its 19 decks were 20 restaurants, sports facilities, outdoor movie theater, spa, casino and swimming pool. We boarded the Epic in Barcelona for a 7-day Mediterranean cruise that took us to Naples, Rome, Livorno, Cannes and Palma de Mallorca. It was a great time specially the optional shore excursions that took us to Florence, Cinque Terre, Monaco and Nice. With all the nonstop activities onboard whose agenda changed daily, there was no time to get bored. Neither was there a time to go hungry what with the unlimited food in the restaurants that you could have either during the day or night.
