This was our 4th cruise but 1st with NCL and the Epic.

First the con's.

Initially the cabin attendant was not real friendly.

A waitress at the Irish Pub was close to rude.

The ports were dirty.

Was not sure I liked a super large ship with over 4,000 passengers.

Adult pool was small.

Now the pro's

Great balcony cabin. ( You didn't mind heading back to the cabin to just hang out).

All the food at all the complimentary restaurants and buffet were as good as any other ship we were on.

(It didn't make sense to pay a premium to dine at the restaurants).

The casino was large enough.

Saw Blue man and Legends. Both done very well.

Plenty of lounge chairs pool side.

Plenty of activities.

Miami seemed to be an efficient port.

Great beaches at the ports.

Gambling better at Atlantis than on the ship.

All in All this was a very nice cruise in spite of our reservations about how large the ship was.. There's so much to do the passengers are spread out on board so maybe size "doesn't" matter. Would we cruise with NCL again. That's a yes.

A final note. The internet is saying if your handicapped that you can park free at the Port of Miami.  Even with all the documents their not doing that anymore according to the gate attendant.
