The cojuna of the cruise shipping world

Sail Date: September 11, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Room Type: Inside

Comparing with Carnival staff, NCL's Epic were more up beat, knew how to say good morning and were abel to engage in conversation without fear of repraisals from supervisors.
Supervisors not afraid to work along employees helping around seen that guests were satisfied with performance.
The video of crew staff thanking the guest and urging to come back to cruise again with NCL.
Affordable prices, hoping that with Allure of the seas coming on line in December 2010 NCL can make more affordable cruising on the Epic.
The prices on the Oasis of the seas a bit too high for the middle class, although this is the (mother of all mother's in the cruising industry).
If the inside cabins increases to $1,000 per occupancy NCL will loose guests, including the nations in which the ships make ports of calls (revenue)

Pros: Beautiful dinning room helpers (females),clean ship, accomodations,

Cons: Faucet too large for sink, some employees not knowledgeable concernig mustard stations (emergency)

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
The attention to details was supperb, since I did not know how to turn the light under the television counter could not find the switch a call was place to front desk and in minutes a supervisor came to show me how to turn the light on.
Also the cabin steward show me and left me the card so the lights in the cabin could stay on.
Service and Staff
They knew how to say good morninng, even the deck crew cleaning the ship at night.
Food and Dining
Need an international night each night in the buffet dinning room salon.
Need more broadway shows and able to accomodate more guests to see the circus sole style in the tent.
Adult comedy, such as a comedian: The second city was an average show did not find humor in their performaces,
The comic magician was the best and should be commended , (after hour adult comedy show) this will enhance the entertaiment.
Dancing was minimal the it was too short the lenght.
And were is the (LIVING ROOM) in this ship, no one was able to explain the location and in the daily brochoure there was no map to indicate were this location was.
Many activities were not properly marked by not having the ship deck displayed in the daily brochoure.
This location not even the posted on the outside part of the elevator hall could be found.
Blue man crew was flat in spots it put me to sleep several times.
Philipsburg, St. Maarten
I asked the driver of the bus that took the group to kayak at the lagoon if he would stop to take pictures at one particular stie and he refuse in the return trip. We did not have a large group and there was plenty of time for the return to the ship.
Nassau, Bahamas
The liquor store accross from the docks. The beach near the Hilton Hotel to the port side never knew that it existed, when coming into port spotted from the ship and made track for it a 5 minute walk and it was worth the track,. The Bahamians had a map that indicates places to go
Don't Miss: Drinking Kalik Gold Beer, Swiming at the beach near the Hilton Hotel, clean the Bahamian police was patroling on foot in this area.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
I was interested in taking the picture of the Epic and coming into the port I spotted a area by the docks in the way to the downtown, I exited and walked around the pier and finally got the pictures that I needed, also of the Oasis of the seas, not leaving behind "The dream".
