Review summary

I loved this cruise and highly recommend the Epic to anyone. The adult only pool area in the back of the ship is large and relaxing. This is the only cruise I have ever been on where it was ALWAYS possible to find two empty deck chairs at any time of the day.

There was a computer glitch that resulted in my credit card not being properly linked to my account. A visit to Guest Services resolved the problem quickly.

Specialty dining was exceptional! The filet at La Cucina was better than at Cagney's.

Onboard Activities

The activities available were good. Sadly, I had foot surgery a few weeks prior and was limited.

The entertainment was acceptable, but not as good as on previous NCL cruises that I have taken.

Ship Quality

I really liked this ship. I thought it was going to be too big, but the design was such that everything was easily accessible.
