November 2016 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Eastern
This cruise ship is too big for my liking. It began with getting onboard. We waited in line for Two hours to get on. Their were only five security stations with two of them reserved for priority guests which allowed only haven and suite guests to go through. Once on board, it was almost impossible to get a drink. Too few bars open and no waiters. This improved somewhat as the cruise went on. The large atrium made for a very noisy area. The only quiet places were the specialty restaurants which were good, especially La Bistro. The pools were too small for the number of cruisers on board. The food was good and there were a lot of choices. Do not get a balcony room on the eighth deck. It is open to the above decks and the balcony gets litter from above. The reason we took this cruise was because it went out of Port Canaveral which is close to home, less than an hours drive. We have been on Ncl cruises before on smaller ships and enjoyed them much better. We wish NCL would have smaller ships going out of the port.
