NCL's Epic is compromised SIGNIFICANTLY by poorly designed staterooms. With each new generation of cruise ships, we have come to expect
a little more space, and a little more luxury, but NCL has reversed this trend by attempting to squeeze the maximum number of staterooms into the
available space, and the result is a significant backward step in comfort and lifestyle. Instead of a dedicated bathroom in the stateroom, the toilet,
shower and sink are essentially situated in the room with you. This is constant challenge throughout the cruise, particularly at night when operations
must be conducted in total darkness if you wish to avoid waking your partner. The frosted glass doors of the shower and toilet offer little privacy,
although we didn't experience the reported "splashing" problems from our sink basin.
