Epic Cruise

Sail Date: February 01, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Balcony

This was a great cruise for the value.   The ship was nice, the food was good, the crew was friendly.   I would recommend this trip.   That said, we still prefer Royal Caribbean as their ships are nicer.   Also, we only had 3 main shows on the Epic and had to pay an upcharge for up to 3 more.   We paid once for the Circus and Dinner.   Was good, but at $40 each for the premium seat, I felt it was over charged.   Royal Caribbean does not charge more for shows.  I hope the cruise industry does not go in that direction.   The Epic, although very nice, did not have as nice of pool deck as other ships, the layout just was not right, but still okay, so still consider this ship.

Ship Quality
Nice ship, somewhat unique.
Food and Dining
Good food, but not great.
Cabin / Stateroom
Did not like the open concept bathroom or the "S" shaped wall.

Staff and crew very friendly, although we never saw the captain.

Weather was not good, so not much to really do but shop for a while and get back on the ship


Make your show reservations in advance, they were very filled up.
