Entertainment was exceptional and the best we have experienced on any ship!!!!!

We ordered an interior room as we have done on other cruise ships, but found our room very stylish but very limited in storage, utility, comfort. Our beds were tiny and not comfortable and I had backache each morning. We noticed other rooms were very much nicer and larger and we wish we would have known that. Again we were next to area the was a work area for the crew and also the large medical center. We had to remove towels and their supplies to make room for our simplest basic things. Tiny sink was in the small room counter & not in the bathroom. Bathroom was divided with shower in one compartment & toilet in another.  Ship was too large and crowded with 4100 passengers and 1750+ crew.We heard comments from different people that said they would not go on the Epic again. They all commented the size was too big.  Many times in the Garden Buffet it was very hard to get a table and going outside was too cold to eat there most days.  Foods was either very good and sometimes very salty.  Staff was friendly and helpful. It is beautiful  ship and well organized.  They were able to move people on and off rapidly.  Tours were organized well and interesting even though expensive.  This is the second time on NCL and both times people had respiratory dry coughs & Norovirus.  Its possible we would use NCL again if it were a itinerary that contained locations we hadn't visit before.
