Average - ship somewhat rundown

Sail Date: April 19, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

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.
