This was my second time on the Epic. Since the first trip the quality of the food has declined, and the loss of the blue man group was not offset by the replacement show. It was still a great cruise but not quite the impressive event it was several years ago.
Things that got better:
Wine selection was surprising. Lots of wins that were not on the menu that were outstanding. Ridge, Caymus, Stags Leap, etc.
The sushi bar, noodle bar improved since my last trip.
Things that got worse:
Cagney's was just not very good. Far from a 4 star steak house and for sure not worth the $200 we spent with all new pricing.
No lobster on the ship to be found. We were in a haven suite and couldn't get a single tail, even with being willing to pay extra.
Kids now pay full fare at restaurants
The garden cafe buffet food was very low quality
Many drinks that were included in the UBP are no longer included. This includes things like espressos, and many top shelf booze. surprise was the $7 uncharge for the Don Julio margs.
