Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

A very fine ship which is the most technologically advanced from the passengers standpoint. Being less than two years old, the ship was in excellenty shape, given its routine upkeep.

Pros: I liked this very handsome\, functional ship

Cons: The veery limited number of ports of call

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship\, while large\, handles the number of passengers well.
Food and Dining
Never had a meal which I woud classify as less than very good\, regardless of the dining venue
Cabin / Stateroom
State roms were a bit small for two rather large adult males\, but very functionl. The fact that the shower\, toilet and lavatory are all three separate is an excellent design idea. While one person is using the lavatory\, another can be using the toilet or shower\, without having to wait for a single facility to be vacated. Bravo to the design team. Bed comfort was outstanding. 26\" LCD TV's\, which provided interactive use from checking account balances\, to booking activities is spectacular! Patios at 7' X 9' are larger than most.
Service and Staff
Staff seemed very attentive overall.
The shows were OK\, not spetacular. Blue Man so. As regards the outdoor pools\, I can see immense problems should there be an abundance of hot weather and a full ship with many wanting to use the pools....very limited pool space!. Hot tubs are adequate at 7\, but the two main pools both of which are small\, and an aft pool which is smaller yet....I pity the 3\,000+ wanting to use the pools on any given day. The water rides (tube chutes) are nice\, but have displaced displaced valuable pool space. I question the wisdom of the design team on this one.
Ouitdoor movies need a bit of an upgrade.
