Review summary

Overall nice cruise in the Haven aboard the Epic. I do not think it was a very good value for the money, however, having sailed in other cruiseline’s suite categories.

Embarkation

5 out of 5
Excellent. Easy. Did miss the glass of champagne they used to provide Haven passengers while you waited to board the ship.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Service in the specialty dining rooms was average. Food was excellent. Used the buffets sparingly but they were good each time.

Onboard Activities

Activities were good. There were some mechanical issues with the air hockey machines in the game room but no staff located there who could assist.

Entertainment

Comedians, dialing pianos and Priscilla show all excellent.

Excursion to snorkeling beach via motorboat. Fun. Nice beaches. Good snorkeling.
