7 Night Western Caribbean (Miami Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 22, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 12140
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Although the family had a great time, and that is what is most important, we found this cruise to be over priced. This was my 9th cruise but first week long voyage and expected more from such a large ship. I was disappointed with the small living quarters including shower and bathroom with frosted windows that were not separated from the room. The food was below average on most nights and the Teppanyaki restaurant was over priced with little food. The quality of the on board entertainment was disappointing, especially the hypnotist and the Second City family performance. Blue Man Group was entertaining. Three days at sea were painful and wished they had a private island like the shorter cruises in which to visit

fruit hardly ripe and desserts were bland. Service was good but tables were hardly stocked with essentials

apart from the Nicolodeon characters, there was not much to rave about

our stweard made it comfortable, BAD smells, like musty odor, and bugs at times. Roy made nice animals out of towels. Room too small and bathroom not private

Dolphin Cove was perfect. Beach a bit disappointing as it was very rocky and no sun in the afternoon to tan
