December 2016 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western
Had an excellence time on the NCL Epic. There are pro's and con's of course on any ship but overall a great trip. We have cruised on difference cruise lines and I think they all have there strong points and their weak. This was a very large ship but didn't seem crowded. The food was excellence in the dining room and at the the other venues. But the hamburgars and hotdogs at the outside grill were not good. I think they could do this better. Also because of the size of the ship reservation were required at the shows. The problem with that is people just sign up for everything and then there are no shows you can get in. They have stand by but good luck getting in at the 11pm comedy show. We did have the drink package that came free with our room and that was wonderful. No problem getting a drink. The stateroom service was the worst I have every had. Never meet my steward until day 3 of the cruise. Called but no one answered. Only 3 towel animals the whole week on a seven day cruise. Personal in other areas were great. Ship was very clean. And one thing that NCL does very well is the ice cream. As I first stated we had a great cruise but we will go on a small ship next cruise.
