December 2016 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean
We were a family celebrating a wedding we had four rooms all balconies! The balconies were large, wished we had a chaise lounge instead of just chairs. Plenty of storage in the room but the bathroom setup with the "curtain door" was a putoff...... We loved the Irish Pub, Howling at the Moon Dueling piano bar, and the Cavern which had the best bank Siglo.....wish they had been in a bigger room like Bliss at least one night so we didn't have to stand each time we wanted to see them......very small room for such a great venue.
We had three "free" specialty dining nights and cannot speak enough about the food and service....Moderno-Texas D Brazil style dining, Cagney's Steakhouse, and Teppanyaki Japanese style cooking.....all so wonderful I can hardly tell you which one I'd pick......I guess Moderno for the fabulous salad bar!
I read in cruise critic that people had to wait in lines for drinks at the bars ... we were a full Holiday ship and if we did have to wait it was less than five minutes and not very often did we have to do that!!!! The service throughout the ship was wonderful. I loved the setup of the Casino and could easily get away from the smokers, I sure do wish they had to go outside to smoke though it kept me away from a lot of machines that I would of liked to play.
The Garden Café.....the setup for breakfast was great.....the omelette stations were at least 12 of them and you did not have to wait in long lines like most ships! The Taste dining room is where we ate our meals and I loved the anytime dining where if you were sitting having a good time and not quite ready to go you could just wait and when you were ready you just walked up to the hostess and were seating everytime immediately!!!!!
We have been on 29 cruises and this was one of the best I have had and I've been on Celebrity, Holland America, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Costa, and Carnival. We will definitely be traveling with NCL again!
