Excellent Entertainment

Liked Studio/Dining Options

Best Dining Service @ Taste/liked the Irish Pub/food

Best Service/Friendly staffs were the Hostess' at the various restaurants

Inconsistant Service throughout ship/same w/taste of food

Epic is simply larger/more expansive, but nothing unusual/different

Some venues could not accommodate passengers for such a large ship

Better services for hard of hearing, i.e. closed captioning for movies/TV

Insufficient Port Information; has postings at guest services and atrium screen, but would be nice to have PRINTED information, including getting around the port city, etc.

Well appointed, plus the Studio Lounge, a gathering place with continental breakfast and afternoon cookies. Has books and games and bar opens during the one hour get together at 6:00 PM with group arrangements for shows, dinners, etc.

Ship Tip

The itinerary for the cruise was excellent. Opportunity for future cruise and bonus was very much appreciated. Miss the various gathering offered past guests - only 1 on Epic = meet the Captain & Officers. Book shows right away.
