Review Summary

Although the ship is a big one, it seems there was a lot of congestion in the halls and certain areas of the ship.  Our room steward was just great. Some of the shows had a lot to be desired.  The excersions we took were a waste of money. You sit in a crowded tour bus and ride around--which you could have done in a cheaper taxi.  The jewlery on the ship was a good value for what they charged. In the dining area upstairs on the 15th floor, was also way too crowded and the limited staff had a hard time keeping the tables cleaned--therefore your food got cold before you could sit down and eat.

The best part of the trip was to Atlantis and the tour of the fish aquariums.  That was very interesting and beautiful.

This all sounds very negative, but all in all we did enjoy our trip and have already booked another cruise on NCl --a much smaller ship with 2,000 folks, verses 4,000 on the Epic!!

Ship Tip

Elevators were always in demand--try the stairs and you will get exercise and wear off all the pounds you gain on the cruise.
