This cruise is way too intense and physically demanding for any vacation, but espically if you're looking to relax and kick back. 6 port stops in 7 days means only1 day at the sea and getting up early for shore excursions every day and going to bed 1-2am, when evening shows end.
I've cruised before and I've never seen a ship, where they charge $30 daily for use of a steam room.
Norwegian Epic is 2nd biggest ship on the planet with 7000 passanger capacity and that's way too many people. Shows are always book and sold out - cant get tickets, elevators are always full and there is a long wait. in the buffet you might end up walking around for 10-15 minutes before finding a vacant table.
Staterooms are very tiny and the sink is actually part of your only desk, located on top of it and it's so small its impossible to wash your hands without spilling the water all over the desk.

Pros: Many port stops - you get to see a lot of places. Pretty good food as well

Cons: $30 daily charge for use of steam room and insane internet prices
