Review summary

Overall, I had an awesome and great time on this Eastern Caribbean cruise on NCL Epic. All the people I encountered all the ship were very nice, had great altitude, and made sure I had a fun experience. The studio room was and continue to be a great addition to offer to solo travelers and I can say it is a genius move. I really appreciated everyone who made it happened.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

4 out of 5
The foods served at main dining rooms were decent but not great, could be hit or miss sometimes. Good thing was the specialty restaurants had excellent foods. I only had breakfast at the buffets and they were fairly good.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
The waterslides were very fun and I really liked the adult-only jacuzzi!! The fitness center had too many trendmills but not enough room for free weight and cross-training.

Entertainment

4 out of 5
The musicians/DJs were generally very good. I did not see any stage shows so can't comment.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I think the concierge for the solo travelers could be more attentive and improve on getting people to familiarize with each other at the solo traveler social. Beside that, I was very satisfied with all the waiters, bartenders, room stewards and all other ship personnel.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I liked the Epic's layout and things were easy to find. Common areas were clean but I noticed some areas did show some age.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
I was satisfied with the overall comfort and it was a perfect size for single person. My room was always clean. One issue I had was the shower water pressure was kind of weak.

Ship tip

Make sure you try the Brazilian BBQ specialty restaurant! It is the best!

Tortola, British Virgin Islands

I went to Long Bay Beach and it was very beautiful and relaxing. Will def do it again! The island itself is still recovering and appears to still a lot of clean-up to do...

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas

5 out of 5
Great vibrant downtown and Mountain Top has amazing views of the beaches and the whole island!

Great Stirrup Cay (Cruise Line Private Island), Bahamas

4 out of 5
The tender took a very long time and felt not very efficient in terms of time. I did have a thrilling and fun time doing wave runner! The beach was a little too crowded though.

Disembarkation

3 out of 5
It was easy to disembark the ship but difficult to find way to get a ride back to the airport. The issue was all the bus shuttle tickets were sold out and very difficult to find alternative transportation.
