7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 08, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Suite
Cabin Number: 13042
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Overall we managed to survive but the family mini suite is nothing more that the regular balcony room with pop down beds (if you can call them that). They should not sell this as a SUITE by any stretch of the imagination. The layout of the room curving like an "S" made for a very uncomfortable feel and the toilet and shower at the cabin door was nothing more than terrible design. The slightly rounded bed at the head and the feet made it difficult for a person of even 5 10 feet to sleep without feet hanging over the bed and the couch was terrible to sit on as the back of the couch was also curved. When you pulled the couch out from the curved back, there was little room to walk by. Balcony was a nice size but there was not any comfort. Two metal chairs and rickety tables provided. Sadly the linen was not nice nor new and our room was never kept clean. The carpets where also filth.

Cruise was fun and evening entertainment kept us happy but bed time with kids was a nightmare. We got though the cruise but 7 days with the "SUITE" like that we will not go back on this ship and will be cautious of their fleet.
