NCL Epic is a huge ship!

Sail Date: November 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Inside

Huge ship. Food very average. Not too many choices on entertainment. Generally very poor except The Legends. Focused on casinos and shopping which are outstanding. You dont have many outstanding choices if one does not shop or gamble. The sun deck is not as colorful. No welcome party like bbq dinner in the deck, as in other ships. No chocolate, ice show at the end. Captains or formal dinner is by invitation only. Tip is compulsory high, mandatory even on first and last days when there was no need for service. Missed the variety shows, different every night in other ships. As usual, Filipino staff were outstanding, corteous and very helpful. Where are the american workers?

Pros: Good ride versus smaller ship.

Cons: Entertainement is not good at all.

Recommends Norwegian Epic? Yes!
