This ship will challenge you in so many ways. The food and entertainment on board were very good indeed and this explains the Rating overall. However, there is nothing relaxing, sophisticated nor memorable except for the congested, ... Read more

We returned from our cruise in the Med (26 June-3Jul) on the Epic and I was epically surprised (in a good way). We travelled with our two children (7 and 10) and we all had a ball. We had spent months reading reviews on this website ... Read more

Just returned from 7 days on the Western Mediterranean. Stayed room 17003 in the haven-a two bedroom. The perks of the Haven are so great-with lots of time saving benefits and select seats for show. Our problem was a water leak in ... Read more
