Review Summary

A week cruise and only one sea makes for a busy time.  This is a great way to get an overview of some of the great places on the Mediterranean.  However, each port stop leaves you wanting for more of the cities visited. With some much time in port and off the boat, the time on the Epic must be budgeted in order to enjoy all the Epic has to offer.  With the unlimited dining package, we ate a specialist restaurant every night.  

One major disappointment:  We love the thermal spa.  However on Saturday night,  after a late port day, we were told that the spa was closing early.  I ask the manager to contact me, but he never did.
