Everything top-notch except the stateroom.: Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by boca trvlr
Overall Member Rating
Everything top-notch except the stateroom.
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
The entertainment was the best on any ship we've been on. Blue Man group was the crowd favorite, but the Cirque Dinner Show, Legends in Concert, Second City, and Howl at the Moon were excellent as well. The extra money for premium seating at Cirque was worth it to be in the middle of the action. Upper More level seating is on a counter at the railing and not much of the show is aerial. Don't miss the "Behind the Blue" lecture with the cast of Blue Man Group. We were happy to see our former cruise director of the Pearl, Simon Murray. He is doing an amazing job as Director of Entertainment.
The food was fantastic at most of the venues we tried: buffet, Manhattan Room, Taste, Teppanyaki, and Wasabi. The exception was O'Sheehans where the fish and chips wer good but the buffalo wings were terrible. Desserts were disappointing overall, but the ice cream and crepes at the buffet were delicious.
For the kids: the Nickelodian activities were a lot of fun, including breakfast with the characters. The basketball court, rock climbing wall, and pool slides provided hours of enjoyment. There are also kids clubs, an arcade, and bowling.
For the adults: late night entertainment, casino, spa, and adult only pool area were all very good.
We did not try the ice bar or the fitness area.
The service on board was terrific with the minor exception of the beverage service being the slowest we have ever encountered. Less
