14 Night Western & Eastern Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 04, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

The Norwegian Epic is a new modern ship. It is quiet and well laid out with convenient elevators and stairways. However, our stateroom, a Family Balcony, which supposedly could have accomodated four was small and cramped for just my wife and myself. The curved sofa was uncomfortable and could only be sat on with any degree of comfort if one sits at either end. Lastly, the "open" bathroom was what I hated most. The small sink mounted in the bedroom allowed water to splash all over everything and it was an annoyance if the other party were trying to sleep. The sounds from the toilet and shower easily passed through the privacy curtain. No way will I ever choose this type stateroom again.

Poolside entertainment was the highlight of on-board activities.

Service and Staff

Everyone was nice and helpful when asked. Compared to the staffs on the Celebrity ships, however, these people were below grade.

Ship Quality

Except for the stateroom layout, a well designed ship.

Though a bit primative, the tour and interaction with the locals was the best.
