January 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Epic
Dubbed "The Ugly Ship" for its boxy bullnose exterior apearance,this ship is far from that as you enter its interior. We were amazed at its fine interior design. We have sailed on many other cruises on various lines and were pleasantly surprised to see a ship that was not cookie-cutter the same as others.
Service on board was average but not as superior as other ships the same size. If you have not sailed on NCL before you will be intrigued by the Freestyle program so please be open-minded if you book this cruise.
Food on board was very good at all the restaurants as well as the buffet. We felt that reservations were a waste of time as it did not matter when you actually arrived. We were disappointed to find out that the two free dining rooms had exaclty the same menues every night. We feel that we should not be forced to pay extra for specialty restaurants and that they should all be included in the cruise fare as cruising has traditionally been.
We certainly recommend this trip to others and would definitely sail again!
