7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 18, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 8024
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The cruise itself was good -- however the ship itself being 4 years old appears  rundown. Our cabin door was stuck, the hairdryer holder was broken, the carpet needed cleaning, The mirrors were dirty, the wood work hat pieces missing and dirty.  All in all the cleanliness left a lot to be desired it is no wonder that the cruise lines are experiencing illnesses. When I compare the NCL Star to the Epic, there is no comparison -- The star is an excellent absolute clean ship.  The Epic staff does not seem to be well motivated or led to do their tasks.  To me it appeared to many crew members standing around around doing nothing. The door leading to the balcony not only was stuck but also had rust on the bottom.
