Review Summary

Imagine our anticipation to see our first balcony stateroom.  We had been upgraded to one  from an inside guarantee because the price had dropped dramatically.  We get on board, put the key in the lock and open the door and no water view...open the drapes and the door and there is a half wall of white steel with the top half having a large oval cutout.  That was our balcony!!  We ran down to customer service and the ship was full, no moving to another cabin.  Not being people to look a gift horse in the mouth, we adjusted and carried on and enjoyed every minute of the cruise.  Loved everything and this was our second cruise on the NCL Epic.  We would go again if the price is right.  We had a great cabin steward named Dominic, he removed the contents of the fridge so we could stow our meds and sodas. at our request.  He was very helpful.  We loved the meals, the dining rooms, Blue Man, Circ, etc, everything was good except one thing...bacon, it was bad, tried it the first day and then again the last and tasted the same, bad.
