7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 15, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 11210
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

The ship was nice, clean with rooms that are spacious and wider shower rooms. The ships water slide was cool but the line gets long. The gym is bigger but there are a few cycling machines that does not work , you have to pay extra to use the steam room ( which most of the other cruise ships were free) .The food was better, more choices than the other cruise ships that we went. We have cruised with Carnival, Princess, Holland, Royal .The only thing is that there is not a lot of shows to watch at night comparing to the other cruise ships. Blue man was great but definitely recommend cirque dinner - its up close and personal. Other than that - the other shows are ok except that some you need to pay extra. We always look forward to the escargot, lobster and creme brulee but those need to go the the specialty restaurants to get the real thing and you have to pay extra again.The ports - Jamaica- wont go back there, but Cozumel and Grand Caymen are great spots to snorkel and the water are pristine and blue.

Ship Tip

My suggestion is to make sure to check your iterinary everyday - what activities you booked on and get a copy of the statement the day before your departure so there will be no surprises.
