We picked this cruise for a second time for the fun and for not having to fly to Miami. The Horseshoe Bay pink sand beach is by far the best our family has experienced anywhere, better than Hawaii, Australia, US, Bahamas or even the ... Read more

This was our 3rd time on the Epic and due to my wifes 70th birthday we decided to try the Haven suites. The cruise itself was very enjoyable and up to the usual Epic standards, however the "Haven Experience" is not worth the ... Read more

I chose this cruise because I had $250 deposit from a previous cruise to spend. I should have let it go because this cruiseline has changed its entertainment, food, and game policies. We were charged $24.99 each if we wanted lobster, ... Read more

1. We are not new to cursing, so we are familiar with cruise enbarkation; the embarkation on the NCL Breakaway was a fiasco. Luckily we booked a semi-suite or (what ever they call it on NCL) this is an up grade. They said we could bring ... Read more
