Epic cruise Transatlantic 2017

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The 13 night Transatlantic cruise was amazing!  The food, entertainment and crew was amazing!  The only problem we had was there wasn't enough crew members on deck to get you drinks during the day.  I would also recommend that you book all your entertainment in advance as soon as possible!  It was basically all full when we tried to book stuff on the ship.  This also goes for the shore excursions as well.

Everything was great! Relaxing! There moments but when you have thousands of people on board expect it! The crew was helpful, professional with a couple of exceptions. Food was good and ship was full of activities.

13 Night Transatlantic Cruise

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The free style dinning was great, many restaurants to choose from. The staff was very friendly.  I think smoking on the balcony should be allowed.  The layout of the bathroom was not good, not private. The entertainment was OK, could be improved. The same entertainment, this needs improvement.

Calm Crossing

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our cruise was a calm crossing interspersed with 3 delightful port days in Bermuda, Madeira and Malaga. The entertainment on board was excellent, particularly Priscilla, Burn the Floor, Epic Beatles and Siglo. The food in general was good but we were very disappointed with Cagney's, the Ribeye steak was not the best and was very dry. I had better in Florida before we left at a much lower price.

We were also disappointed with the beds in our balcony stateroom which were comfortable enough but too short. I am only 5 feet 9 inches but my feet hang out over the bottom of the bed ! Also on a couple of days when the 9 am fit dance couldn't be held outside it was cancelled instead of being moved inside. The Bliss lounge was vacant and could have been used but was not. In general the Bliss lounge was under used the whole voyage.

We are still disappointed to find that smoking is still allowed in the casino.

Safe trip

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We enjoyed the Lack of time demands;  friendliness and efficiency of staff; laundry specials; life boat training (held inside); because there were three other cruise ships all disembarking at the same time, port authority delayed us getting off ship!, thus a long process and only 4 people stamping passports, thus a long process. Taxis and busses overwhelmed!!

First Cruise

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Pros

Boarding process was pretty efficient

Spa was amazing

Cabin attendant was great

 

Cons

Batteries in door lock failed twice, locking us out of cabin twice, once at the intial departure, so we didn't get to enjoy that.  Took security 45 minutes to get to our cabin.  Happened again 5 days later.

Way too much salt - food, water - all of our group experienced foot and ankle swelling

Majority of bartenders did not seem happy to be there

Over charged for spa access, we purchased cabin on 14th deck because spa access was included

Over charged for one of the meals

AC in cabin struggled the last 2 days

Personally, 7 days is a couple of days too long

the ship itinery was excellent . it would show who and what going on. my suggestion for first timers is to bring your luggage aboard with them so they can change and be comfortable and not wait till 6pm for the luggage to arrive by staff, theyre to many passenger to expect luggage to be in room.

We wish the ship would have allowed us to buy pictures at a later date online. They are very expensive and most of the time at the end of the ship you have spent all your money. We know we would have bought online at a later time if we had the opportunity to do so.

Get a room near the front, the forward elevator goes right into the buffet, and don't miss the free liquor tasting each night at 8, they give out increasingly better scotch in the liquor shop each night.
