November 2014 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western
Overall a good cruise but certainly not our best! The cabin and the food were excellent but the entertainment left a lot to be desired. On all our other cruises which were on smaller ships(2000-2500 passengers) we had a different show every night in the theatre. This cruise only had 2 shows in the theatre which alternated on different evenings and the shows were not all that great. On three occasions I tried to book the 'Cirque' dinner/show but the only seats available were the more expensive ones. There were 2 sets of elevators towards the ends of the ship but no center elevators to directly access the shops and various ship's services so there was a lot of walking. At busy times we spent a lot of time waiting for elevators. Norwegian advertises 'Freestyle" but there was nothing 'free style' about it. We had to make advance reservations for all shows and it was strongly recommended that we if we wanted a particular 'free' restaurant other than the buffet, that we make reservations. The men's washrooms left a lot to be desired. There always seems to be 'puddles' under the urinals. I complained directly to the ship about this.
We got a good price on the cruise and we certainly got our money's worth but this ship is one I will not be travelling on again.
