January 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Epic
This was our 6th cruise, second on NCL.
Pros - Entertainment was excellent especially "Howl At The Moon". We went to 2 specialty restaurants and the meals were very good as were the meals in the main dining restaurants. We had a mid ship balcony room. Very clean and loads of storage space. Easy to find our way around and familiarized our bearings on the ship very quickly. Staff was efficient, especially the waiters in all restaurants.
Cons - Too many people compared to other ships. Garden Cafe was like a free for all - steer clear if you don't have kids. A certain religious group were catered to the extent that other passengers were inconvenienced at times. They went into the dining room at 5:30 and sat there till 10:00 using up space making others wait daily. Children constantly cut in lines. It is not up to passengers to maintain order when the parents are too ignorant to do so. Sink was like a spitoon in the dentist's office. Bring a bar of soap - none are supplied - just liquids. Pizza was always undercooked.
