Cozumel offers nothing. (The Keys are much better). Ocho Rios, Jamaica & Costa Maya, Mexico Had sights too see. Horseback riding in the Ocean at Ocho Rios was entertaining & fun. The shipboard entertainment was good with the Blue Man Group show the best.  The food was plentiful during meal times but not very tasty in any of the onboard restaurants including the specialty restaurants. If you don't mind what your eating and like volume the cruise is for you. 

Ship Quality
The ship Epic is a great vessel.
Food and Dining
Lack of quality with plenty of quantity at the Garden Cafe Buffet.
Cabin / Stateroom
Very nice stateroom with excellent housekeeping service.
Service and Staff
Only the steward really cared to please. (Give Allen a raise)
there were many things to do onboard.
Children's Programs
We had no young children aboard but noticed on deck 15 that the children who were onboard were very well entertained.
Onboard Activities
Many things to do or see.
Destinations and Excursions
Except for Cozumel the destinations and excursions were good.
Miami, Florida
Home port is not too shabby.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
Interesting port provides an opportunity too see how others live in poverty.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Mayan Temple tour combined with a stop to eat at a Mayan families home was very nice.
Cozumel, Mexico
Overpriced with nothing to offer.


See the Blue Man Group. Eat in Manhattan probably your best bet.
