New Ship but too large and impersonal

Norwegian is very efficient in processing large number of passengers - they have to because the Epic carries over 5,000. The cabin staterooms were average size but clean and the service was exceptionally good. The highlight were the common areas for dining, entertainment. The food and beverage were average but available almost continuously. The entertainment particularly "Burn the Floor"  featured a world renouned Broadway goup of dancers who were spectacular and taught us how to dance Salsa, Meringe, Line Dance, .... The shore excursions were excellent particularly around the Grand Canary Islands. An enjoyable trip!

NCL is a very well run cruise line - very professional but not spectacular.
