Never again in NCL epic 1st if you are trying to celebrate your birthday or anything that you need to blow a candle, you better choose another ship... Its very strange that you cannot blow candle because they are afraid of fire etc, ok fine u the  have point!! but what about those who smoke in the casino?? In the kitchen?? etc.. They even cut the candle wick   without informing us,  we got shock couz we are used to celebrate my son's birthday in a ship this time  we our sooo sooo upset!! Our main purpose for this vacation is to celebrate my son 4rt birtday but at the end we are not happy. Unlike in other ships we've been// our son have always blowed the  candle happily. During his birthday he was sad a bit, but he understood the policy but we parents we're more sad than him.. In this ship we are very very disappointed, the ship is big yes!!! But its very boring! if you just to stay inside the ship.. well Nothing is elegant inside!!! There are lot of staterooms but few public place to hang on.. Some are friendly but some of theme are inpolite. If you want to watch something something special you need to pay too! there are also free but its not really nice. 1 liter of water cost u 7dollars... We also went to restaurants where you pay your food but its also a big disappointment, the foods are not good, Service is very slow worse than a turtle, the girl who took our order is very impolite....its not worthy at all. . i suggest u guys to eat in the buffet or in the free restaurant... I promise u guys the room with balcony is too small, you dont even have a privacy when going to toilet couz u have only a curtains separating bed and shower and toilet.. Well we've been to other norwegian ship (a smaller one) before and its was all perfect, but this ship is nothing compare to other NCL, this Epic is my 9th cruise and im 28 of age and i say its the worst .. i said i will never never go to a big ship like this.!! well guys im sorry if i disppoint some of u , if u already booked and cannot cancel.. well there is no choice but only to ENJOY.
