14 Night Transatlantic & Western Mediterranean (Miami To Barcelona)
Sail Date: April 19, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Epic
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 12225
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 3 years ago

Although the Staterooms are well laid out, they do show A LOT OF wear and tear on a four year old ship -- sitting on the balcony one sees a lot of rust. If you are used to walk around the ship making a circle -- that is impossible on the Epic -- as a walker you get run over by the joggers because the jogging deck only goes a half circle. In the garden Cafe the servers and cooks are not well organized -- by the pizza station you have at times five cooks but if you ask for something they send you from one to an other-- At imes they have people cleaning the tables they almost grab the plates out of your hand at other times they is hardly anyone.Entertainment was weak and not denough for us elderly.

not much for elderly couples -- the entertainment in the lounges ended up as noise because they were to close to one another
