Norwegian Epic....Eternally spoiled!
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The ship, itself, is incredible! Something for everyone. The shows are not to be missed, from the Blue Man Group to Legends(Michael Jackson, Donna Summer, Jimmy Buffet, Rod Stewart, etc., impersonators) to Cirque Dreams in the Speigel Tent to Howl At the Moon/Dueling Pianos(hysterical!). Several pools, including water slides, adults only, and a private pool and sundeck area for Haven guests, keep you busy. Activities during the day and night are endless, if that is what you want, or you can choose to do absolutely nothing!
The food was some the best we have ever had at sea or on land. The crew members are attentive, friendly, and fun. They bend over backwards to make your cruise enjoyable. Tons of entertainment all day long, from on-deck music to game shows, whatever you could possibly want. There are children's programs, teen programs, and, the best yet, accommodations specifically for cruisers who wish to sail alone! They have staterooms for single travelers where you DO NOT pay double occupancy! They are stylishly decorated. There is even a lounge for those who prefer to sail alone making it easier to meet new friends.
One of the most important aspects we have always found on Norwegian is their awareness of providing PLENTY of hand sanitizing stations, a point neglected by other lines. The crew awaits you when you board with spray bottles of sanitizer at every port, and there are hundreds of dispensers all over the ship. As stated, we have been on ships where this is not done, and on those cruises, the last one we were on comes to mind, many, many people became ill with Norovirus(approx. 200!). I am sure I have left many things out of this rambling review, but all I can say is this was definitely one cruise we will never forget! Kudos to Norwegian, the Epic, it's crew! By the way, 4 new ships will make their appearance over the next year. From what we heard, the Epic crew is slightly jealous of those crew members who will be sailing on them. I can't wait to check them out! Before you book with any other line, go to www.ncl.com and look over the Epic, the Breakaway(sailing out of New York to Bermuda), and the new ships. I am sure you will enjoy every last minute of your cruise. Less
