Room Type: Inside

Favorite part was the unlimited beverage package. Without it, we would have gone insane. We met some great bartenders who crafted some new delicious cocktails as well! Lets starts off, this was my first cruise in Port Canaveral and with my children. The Port was extremely unorganized and took over 2 hours to board, and almost 2 hours to disembark. The Epic only had 3 shows, 1 of which had to be paid thanks. The childcare was only open for a couple hours at a time, kinda hard to get them in at exactly that time to maximize the time. Saunas and spa area all had to be paid for to use it. The wait times at the Manhattan and Taste were all around an hours to 2 before we got food, thank God for iPad's and kindles. The food was delicious though. Our room was tiny, the toilet door and shower door (both separate) were basically transparent. I would not go back on the Epic.

Cabin / Stateroom
Too small, after 7 days in cramped quarters, it was easy to get angry at each other in there.

Food and Dining
Food was great, waiting for food and drinks would have been a nightmare without having electronics for the kids.
