EPIC Disappointment saved by Cruise Director and his team
Another thing that I didn't find pleasant was the smell on certain sections of deck 14 (close to staterooms 14109, stateroom 14109, stateroom 14073 and stateroom 14043). Although, I must admit I really liked and enjoyed my SPA Balcony (#14171) and access to the SPA.
Also, the NCL commercials for EPIC make it seem that Nickelodeon characters are all over the ship at all times (at least the ones before advertising the two ALL NICK ALL THE TIME cruises that will sail in 2011). In order to see Sponge Bob you better take advantage of Breakfast with Nickelodeon or you will only get the opportunity to meet and greet Sponge Bob OR any other Nickelodeon character 3 scheduled times throughout the duration of the cruise (the meet and greet event is free but Sponge Bob may or may not be there, no guarantee). Oh, by the way, there's a cover charge for Breakfast with Nickelodeon.
There is also a charge for Cirque Dreams and Dinner and there's also a charge to the Ice Bar. If you want to Bowl, there's a charge as well. There is no charge, however, for Blue Man Group or Legends in Concert (which is an awesome show, two thumbs up).
Last but not least, I must say that had it not been for Silas Cook and his team (Cruise Director and his staff), our time on board the ship would have been a really bad experience overall. KUDOS to Silas and team they do a great job and inject a lot of energy in all they do so that vacationers enjoy their time on the EPIC.
Disembarkation was no problem at all. I give the ship a 9 and I give a 6 to our overall time on the ship. Of course, time on shore was wonderful and much fun. Less
Cabin review: M914171 Spa Mini-Suite with Balcony
My cabin was 14171: great closet and additional storage compartments, great view, very close to SPA and Fitness center, deck 15 directly above was home to H20 Spice (for adult partying)not distracting even when I opened balcony door could hear music but was not annoying or loud...awesome view, close to elevator but not noisy eitherRead All Spa Mini-Suite with Balcony (M9) Reviews >>
