Review summary

Overall we enjoyed the cruise. Would give a B+. Was not to impressed on how cabin was set up and WiFi don’t waste your money. But the crew was very friendly and our going. Food was delicious in specialty restaurant. We got the drink package but it didn’t include water or soft drinks which was weird

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Guess we were lucky. Got to boat right at 1:00. Hardly any line. Walked right up and registered with very friendly young lady. Made it very easy and enjoyable. Made it thru registration and on to boat within 10 minutes

Food and Dining

I would give it overall 4 stars. Food at speciality restaurant was great. Main dining rooms ok. Only did lunch at buffet and had salad

Waves Bar

5 out of 5

This is where we went for our daily beers. The bartenders were great. Just keep in mind that it is a busy bar and there will be a wait. But sit back and relax your on vacation

We normally don’t get in to the activities. We like to set back and relax by the pool

Only going to say entrainment was average

Service and Staff

Almost all personnel was friendly and out going. Most would always speak to us wishing us to have a good day.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
It is an older ship and probably needs update. But over all it was clean. Was not impressed with the bath rooms in state rooms and there layout

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Didn’t like layout of room. Don’t think space was used wisely. Hated the bathroom and shower setup. I’m only 5’7 and my feet kept hanging off the bed. No room to walk between bed and wall. Always having to get out of each other’s way. Our room was always kept clean

Ship tip

I read a lot of negative reviews about the Epic. Was worried about doing our cruise. Decided I was going to go with a positive outlook and glad I did. Over all I enjoyed it. Just keep in mind that there is over 4000 people on this boat. So yes there are lines and you gave to wait. We booked all of our dinning and entertainment before the cruise which helped a lot
