Ship Facts: Norwegian Epic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Epic Deck Plans
Epic number of passengers
I agree with the previous review regarding the Epic. The entertainment venues are too small for the number of passengers and you cannot just walk in and sit down you have to wait in line until showtime and then file in. I waited for one show and almost reached the door only to be told it was full and come back in two hours for the later show at 11 p.m. Epic will have to sort out the queueing problem as the corridors were blocked with two or more queues and everyone was unhappy with the situation.

There were lots of charges for everything, more than other ships, keep in mind all the food and entertainment has been paid for in the holiday price but once on board you find yourself paying a surcharge for some shows and restaurants and once inside paying again for select items on the menu and paying over the odds for drinks plus of course extra charges on top.

We did enjoy the week, the food was as always excellent and we met some great people. The Blue Man Group were rubbish and were also on in New York and Las Vegas so who are they under all that paint? The Second City Group were fantastic as was the circus.

We did not like the toilet, shower, basin, curtain thing going on and could not understand why we could not just have a bathroom as before, it would not take up any more room than splitting the appliances into three pods did. Whichever art student thought up that idea wants shooting. Too much thought has gone into the shape of the rooms and sinks and not enough into the capacity (or lack) of the venues taking into account the great number of passengers on board and where is the usual starbar like a showbar place which was greatly missed. We will not be choosing Epic again.
