Great time on the high seas!

Sail Date: August 21, 2010

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Balcony

The Epic has something for everyone. The rooms are small and awkward but if you take advantage of all the ship has to offer you spend very little time in your cabin. The shower, sink and bathrooms are very poorly designed.

Pros: Entertainment

Cons: Ports

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Very uncomfortable for two people who are not sharing a bed. There is less than a foot between the two beds. The sink splashes all over the counter. Lots of storage space! Beds are very comfortable.
Food and Dining
The food in the free restaurants was mediocre. The specialty restaurants were good but pricey. $25 per person for Teppanyaki was more than we pay for hibachi at home! And the quality was the same.
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
Best entertainment on the sea. The Blue Man and Cirque shows were top notch. Nick Slime was perfect for families. The blues club was NY quality...excellent performers! The Legends were fun to watch. No cheesy Vegas wannabe shows. Real entertainment! The only disappointment was the dueling piano show. One of the singers was awful and they both made it difficult to sing along.
Children's Programs
Our 11 year old loved Recess. The staff was wonderful.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Costa Maya only exists for the cruise trade. It consists of a village created for tourists. The sand flies are vicious! We had the worst excursion ever on the dune buggies. They kept braking down, the beach was filthy and the drinks at the beach were watered down and over priced.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
The tour was interesting and the beach was nice.
Cozumel, Mexico
xtrails was awesome! I can't remember the last time I had so much fun getting dirty (and I mean dirty). The cave was just okay but the muddy trail was great!
Don't Miss: Xtrails
