Ship Facts: Norwegian Epic Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Epic Deck Plans
NCL Epic - New Year's 2011
The entertainment was the best I have seen on any ship. If you don't reserve in advance, you could be out of luck. They don't have the regular 7:30 and 9:30 shows so some nights there are no shows. We booked Blue Man Group, Cirque Dinner Theatre and Legends on the days at sea. They were fantastic and they also got sold out. The casino host tried to get some of her best customers reservations and could not.

The food was excellent - better than on any other NCL ship. We were with 2 very picky eaters and they were impressed. We ate in the Manhattan Room and loved that they had a band playing and you could dance. We ate in Taste which was convenient to the Casino. The buffets were wonderful for breakfast and lunch most days. Cagney's was great as well as LaCucina.

The casino was awesome and crowded and lot sof action. We saw some people winning ont he slots and the tables were hot. Someone won $15,000 in Bingo on the fill in entire card in under a certain number of numbers.

We hated our room - outside balcony. It was so narrow between the bed and the dresser that we had to ask can I got now or just take turns getting dressed. It was very tight. We liked the layout of the shower and toilet.

We are gamblers and so we are in the casino every night. The restrooms are very far away and that was totally inconvenient. Also the signage for the restrooms all over the ship were inadequate until you finally figured out that they were near the stairways.

Also, could not get a lounge chair in the sun or shade on any day at sea. It was so crowded mostly because of the kids and parents sent them down to put towels on the chairs early in the morning. There were rules about not doing it but nobody listened.

All in all we had a great time but don't know if we would do this ship again.
