Eastern Caribbean GREAT cruise!!

Sail Date: April 01, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The ship is huge and amazing! There are more things then you can possibly do in one week! We all enjoyed all of the food. A huge pool area. My 15 and 16 year old sons had the time of their life. The teen center had good activities that keept the teen agers happy until 1am every night. We went easter week and there were hundreds of kids. This cruise was 95% perfect. The Freestyle concept is great for my family. The 5% negative. Smoking at all outdoor bars including right next to the kids pool , Casino right in the way of everything with smoking, Pool deck chair hogging, and the sports bar had one channel the entire week. ESPN2. That is not a Sports bar!

Pros: Service, Food, Ship, activities

Cons: Smoking it way too many open areas

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

Children's Programs
I can only speak for the older teen program and it could not have been better.
Just look at the NCL website.
Service and Staff
The staff was all very nice and responsive.
Cabin / Stateroom
The quality was high. Good bed, nice sofa, huge amounts of storage. The glass bathroom walls are weird and should go but that is a design issue not quality. No bathroom privacy at all. The doors are sliding shower doors at best.
Food and Dining
The buffet food was outstanding, And we all enjoyed the service and food in the main dining rooms. The Italian specialty restaurant was better than the dining room for only $10 extra.
Ship Quality
As good as you can get a 140,000 ton ship.
