NCL Epic - Eastern Caribbean
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Now for the ships entertainment, which we have to admit is unparalleled at sea. We tried to get to every show, and made our reservations for those that we could 45 days before sailing. Blue Man Group is everything you've ever heard about them and more, absolutely spectacular show. The Cirque Dreams show and dinner at the Speigal Tent was also utterly amazing and overrode the fact that the dinner part was average. We highly recommend the premium seating fee as we literally 5 ft from the center stage. We also took in the Legends Concert (outstanding), the Murder Mystery Luncheon (entertaining), and 2nd City Comedy troop ( We went to the adult 11 pm show and enjoyed it very much)We also spent ample time in various lounges the most enjoyable of which were the Atrium bar with it's spectacular big screen and live entertainment by the Apollo Duo who were very good. We discovered Fat Cats Blues Bar too late in the week or probably would have ended up there every night. The house band was amazing, and the entertainers from various shows on the ship would hang out at the club and do impromptu sessions with the band.
The ship itself is relatively easy to navigate once you come to grips with elevators only being at the stern and bow. It is elegantly appointed and and as beautiful a ship as we have had the opportunity to cruise on. Shopping areas are adequate and like any cruise ship, you'll always find one sale or another going on. The casino is spacious and offers the normal games you will find on the high seas. The spa and fitness area is something to behold. We used the gym as much as possible and though we didn't partake of the spa services, friends of ours did and raved about the service and facilities.
We visited St Thomas, St Maarten and Nassau during this trip, all ports we've previously been to and enjoy. We took only one excursion, a beach and shopping trip to Magens Bay which we wouldn't really recommend. Our journey concluded on the 17th, and debarking and customs was an absolute breeze ! Well done NCL!! Less
