Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by mninem: NCL EPIC = Nice
Overall Member Rating
NCL EPIC = Nice
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
I am okay with the wave room. Square corners are not required in my life. But if more than 2, it is crowded. With 2 sometimes open drawers or doors get in the way. Forget about opening the bench bed and then trying to get to the balcony or closet. Even at low pressure the small sink bowl favors water splash onto the counter and the tissue box holder just below the faucet. Storage tubs are under the bench bed. Storage behind the back cushions of the bench bed.
Top marks to the wait staff at the Irish bar/restaurant.
Getting from one end of the ship to the other is not easy. The old trick of going to a cabin deck and walking the length of the ship does not work because of the lift locations.
After the luxury cabins tour, I have no interest in them. lots of plastic and Ikea style fiberboard furnishings, similar to regular cabins furnishings. Looks to me that the market are those who want restricted access accommodations plus the uniformed service staff act like More pompous asses (but they act normal when not on the job).
Blue men are good at adjusting their timing to the rhythm of the audience.
Legends: Elton John had the voice, clothing and the walk. Shakira does not look like her nor sound like her, but has a great act. Whitney Houston, like the original - lifeless and no emotion in the songs. Destroyed Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You."
Best lounge performers who should have their own theater show are Twice as Nice. Must hear their version of "Breathe."
Boarding was disorganized. Priority line was so slow that we moved to the end of a regular line and got checked in before the 4 couples that were ahead of us in the priority line. Appeared to be a shortage of a new form to be filled in. Last morning had lots of guides to point passengers to exits, luggage pick up and transportation. Less

Cabin review: B4191 Family Balcony
Wave room is okay for 2 people, but not for 3 or more. Even at low pressure, washing hands in the sink will splash water on the counter. Then, water can drip onto the tissues in the tissue holder just under the faucet side of the sink. The flooring in the sink area is carpet. Do not get it wet. No door handle hanger card. There is a dial to request turn-down, make-up room, do not disturb or welcome.Read All Family Balcony (B4) Reviews >>
