Our overall impressions are WOW!!! We love this ship, from the freestyle dining, top notch entertainment, and plenty of fun activities

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
THe food was excellent. We liked the Garden Cafe for breakfast and lunch. Too many options to choose from and very little waiting since everything is well organized into stations. Only ate at one speciality restaurant - Teppanyaki's. One of the best meals I have had and the chef put on a very good show. Tastefully decorated with lots of art on the walls. Highly recommended.

All entertainment was also top-notched from the Blue Man Group, Cirque show, and Legends. We also enjoyed Howl at the Moon, the Jazz and Blues club, and numerous contestant contests. The Bliss night club was also very active.

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
The kids did not participate since they hung out with us.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff service was excellent. The always had a no-problem attitude to special food substitutions or double portions.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Tasteful decor in the style of Las Vegas, very modern and fun as opposed to refined, elegant, and stuffy. The ship is brand new so everything is in first class condition.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We booked and inside stateroom to save some money. It was too small for a family of four. We would spend more and get a balcony if we could do it over.

We took a taxi to Half Moon Bay and snorkeled.

We did the ATV and beach snorkeling tour. We had on and off rain, but it was fun riding through the mud puddles. Very good tour. Our snorkeling was cancelled due to high wind and waves. We went shopping the rest of the day.

Did the Bio Zip line tour. This is highly recommended. Very energetic and friendly guides.

Pros: Entertainment, beautiful decor, lots of activities

Cons: Small cabin, high priced drinks

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!
