Epic was great. . go for it.
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Food ranged from awful (the lobster reeked of iodine) to fabulous (best duck I've ever had in the French restaurant). The awful was just the lobster and the spinach dip in the pub. Loved the French restaurant; loved Cagneys, loved the buffet, particularly for lunch. Loved the martini bar. Shows were ok. We saw Blue Man and More Second City and a comedian/magician. We're not big show people, but enjoyed it. We spent most of our time relaxing; didn't even get off the ship except once in St. Thomas.
I bought the hyrotherapy package in the spa with my cousin's husband (my husband wasn't interested). I strongly recommend it. It's $200 per couple, and gives you week long access to the hydrotherapy area, with lovely lounge chairs, some heated, some outside on the deck, and a huge wonderful warm water pool and jacuzzi, steam rooms, and saunas. I spent every afternoon there reading and napping. It was heaven.
This was my husband's first cruise and my second (first was years ago to Alaska) and we loved it. Will definitely go again, although may choose a smaller ship. The gambling area was a downer in that it dominated the ship and we don't gamble. I prefer when the casino is in its own room.
Yes, it occasionally got smoky but not too bad at all.
Oh, the gym is incredible. I did the spinning class package (4 classes for $60, I think) and it was awesome. We worked out every day.
Really, you will LOVE this cruise! Less
Cabin review: 12008
12008 -- enclosed balcony with metal so it blocks view. Otherwise, fine. Great storage. Bathroom and shower were no problem and worked beautifully as arranged.
Ports are poor, staff are conf...
Well its not all good....
Stayed in The Haven
