Excellent overall!

Sail Date: June 17, 2012

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

We were very pleased with all aspects of the Epic. The room was quite nice for a cruise ship cabin, especially the shower, which was surprisingly large. Loved having the balcony, which was also well-sized for a cruise ship. The buffet food was decent; the sit-down restaurants (both the included ones and the specialty) were excellent. We were also pleased with the entertainment that we saw, which included the Blue Man Group, Howl at the Moon, and several of the \"game show\" style shows at the Atrium. Our only gripe about the entire experience was the obnoxious kids who insisted on running down the hallway through the cabin area at night.

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

Ship Quality
The Epic is *huge* compared to the cruise ships I was used to\, but we found it pretty easy to get around. The lack of ability to access a couple of the floors from the rear stairwells was confusing at first\, but we quickly adapted! We were very pleased with the overall decor and cleanliness of all areas of the ship.
Food and Dining
The steakhouse and French specialty restaurants were well worth the small extra cost!
