It wasn't as good as previous on NCL but i think this might have been due to Spring Break and the ship seemed very under staffed. They did a great job but it would make me consider another operator in the future.

Missed some ports due to weather, but plenty to do on the EPIC! by ELBlanco

We had a total of 3 sea-days over the course of a 4-day cruise. We missed our first stop because tender boats couldn't reach the ship due to high swells and rough seas. So, 1 extra sea-day. We missed Nassau on your first pass due to the same 12 foot swells, and concerns about docking. So, 2nd sea-day. The weather cooperated by day number 3, and we went back to Nassau with no problems. It was a beautiful day. We made it back to Port Canaveral on time. Yes, someone fell off the ship and were successfully rescued alive. Yes, some people were left behind at Nassau because they missed the boat. And yes, they were all Spring Breakers.

Will personally avoid the Epic in the future by gweier50739479

The cruise destinations were wonderful; however, the ship does not have a well-designed layout. The crew seemed tired and sometimes so much into their jobs that they appeared less than friendly.

Although I was not particularly impress with the Epic itself, I did like the shows, the entertainment, the staff and the various food venues. I would sail NCL again, but not this ship.

the ship itinery was excellent . it would show who and what going on. my suggestion for first timers is to bring your luggage aboard with them so they can change and be comfortable and not wait till 6pm for the luggage to arrive by staff, theyre to many passenger to expect luggage to be in room.

We wish the ship would have allowed us to buy pictures at a later date online. They are very expensive and most of the time at the end of the ship you have spent all your money. We know we would have bought online at a later time if we had the opportunity to do so.

Explore the many venues for sunbathing to find your favourites, then go there early to get it. Book your shows before you sail, and use the box office to get into shows that you cannot book on-line. As soon as the shows in the comedy club has started you can sneak in and see it even if it's sold out
