 Great trip!  This was our 4th cruise, 2nd on NCL.  As a couple, we love the freestyle cruising, as its easier to find a place to eat, not worry about waiting until our appointed time.  Saw large groups having to work hard at making reservations, so wouldn't recommend for large groups.  Ship was big, loved our stateroom (we had a mini-suite) and the balcony was really big.  We spent a lot of time out there.   Minuses were the casino being in the middle of the ship, the walking/jogging track had NO VIEW (looking at the lifeboats) and didn't go all the way around the ship.  Lots of waiting for elevators too!

  Would go again, but not on the Epic.

Ship Tip

If you eat at the buffet, take your food to the fwd end of the ship and go downstairs to eat at La Cucina - much quieter! Also, be prepared to walk stairs or wait long times for elevators. I wore my fitbit and averaged 17,000 step a day!

We got a tip to go to Cable Beach - don't do that! No Public beaches!
