“Change is a good thing,” as they say… but when it comes to picking a style of cruising, deviating from the norm can be tricky. Member favoritevacation and her husband did a lot of research before embarking on their first big ship: Norwegian Epic. Having sailed many on many “smaller” ships in the past, they were experienced cruisers, simply looking for a new experience.
But it wasn’t just the big ship that was new to them. Favoritevacation and her husband went with an inside cabin instead of their usual balcony, so they could splurge onboard.
Trading the lack of sunlight for a couples’ spa treatment and a few other extras, they enjoyed a cruise full of pampering, dining variety and entertainment. An epic salad bar and mouthwatering lamb chops made the extra $20 for dinner at Moderno worth it, while Posh Beach Club was less pleasing and in favoritevacation’s opinion, a waste of money.
With a big ship now under their cruising belts, the couple has added a variety of onboard experiences to their repertoire. Read favoritevacation’s full review for her hits and misses on entertainment.
For their efforts, favoritevacation and four other Reviewers of the Week — orlandoky, R**T, CruisinCadie and kruzkween — receive Cruise Critic logo items.
