Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
All the food was top notch. Some bars mixed better drinks then others but once I found my favorite all was well.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
What we were able to use was great. Lots of options but my choice of season meant no pools for me.


4 out of 5
Most of the shows and music were great but a couple things seemed tired and not the best. Overall still great. The Epic Beatles were a blast.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
We were treated very well by all. From room steward to the bar staff.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
The Epics cabin bathroom setup is notorious but for a married couple it was no issue. Some of the ship could use some refreshing but still a great ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was top notch. Large balcony really added a bunch of extra room for activities.

Ship tip

Get the Old Fashioned at Maltings.

Enjoyed our time in Barcelona. Plenty to see and do if you have free time.

Naples, Italy

4 out of 5
Sorrento was great and the Pizza was amazing. Naples is not the cleanest of cities though

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

5 out of 5
Rome and the Vatican were great but hard to fit so much into such little time. Still enjoyed it

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

5 out of 5
Florence was amazing.

Cannes, France

3 out of 5
Even though we took an excursion with transfer the mob getting off the ship at the same time was a bit ridiculous. But we made our way off the ship found the bags and toured Barcelona before the trip home.
