Review summary

I enjoyed the cruise very much. The seas were mostly calm with some gentle rocking at night which helped with sleep. The activities directors had nice activities as well as fantastic personalities and intermixed with everyone well. Unfortunately I would not cruise on the Epic again because it has nowhere where you can walk around the entire ship on the outside. The ship is too enclosed aside from the outside pool and sunning decks.

Unless you are in the first few rows it is very difficult to see the entertainer and you have to look at the TV monitors on the side walls.
