The Epic is much too large and the crowds were unbelievable.

Review summary

I did not realize that our staterooms were improperly booked so our party was on two different decks. The EPIC is bloated. There are too many people packed in and the entire experience uncomfortable.

A mob scene but it moved with reasonable speed.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Food was ok. Restaurant reservations were impossible to make because of the volume of people.

Onboard Activities

2 out of 5
Pool deck was wall to wall people. Pools were standing room only. Spa is lovely. Fitness center very nice.

Ship Quality

2 out of 5
Ship was clean. Layout and how to get from "here to there" took days to understand.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Very little space to move around but it was comfortable and well kept. Definitely needs outlets near the bed.

Ship tip

Don't go on the Epic unless it is half filled.

Ports of call

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

The Baths were beyond crowded.

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

3 out of 5
Our trip snorkelling in St. John was cancelled. Charlotte Amalie is a nice town.

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

1 out of 5
Took HOURS to tender to the island. The island itself is just a beach with a few thousand people.

We took a post-cruise trip so we avoided the lines.
