January 2015 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western
Wow. This was an experience I'll never forget, and unfortunately, will measure all other future cruises to. As a solo traveler, I took advantage of the single rooms aboard the Epic. It is perfectly laid out with some really nice finishes. Aside from that, the exclusive lounge for solo travelers is an amazing perk. Aside from having tv's, coffee bar and drink bar inside, it was the center for meeting up with others traveling like me. There is a solo cruise director who encourages and facilitates group interaction and activities. This was like going to a party and then the after party was going to dinner together, We quickly formed friendships and started bonding at lightning speed. The true testament is really disembarking the last day, when we all went separate ways and back to our homes, we all started facebooking each other immediately sharing pictures, messages and just softening the blow of cruise withdrawal. The NCL Epic and staff really know how to organize and facilitate an amazing experience.
