Too much hype for a so-so ship
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)
The food was pretty good on the ship. I didn't care for the food in Ocean Blue, and it is small servings for the $49 rate they charge. The buffet had the same thing almost everyday. They do have the hot dog stand on the ship, and they were tasty. Sometimes, there were waits of up to 30 minutes to eat in the complimentary restaurants. So, get there before 6:30 or after 8:00 to eat dinner. They do serve lemonade now in the restaurants.
The outside deck areas were always filled with people. A lot of people were using the water slides. They need to do a better job with freeing up chairs that were not being used but, had towels on them. The pools are very small and a joke. Entertainment was good on the ship. We saw Rock of Ages, and went to Bliss nightclub.
Overall, the ship isn't worth the hype, and it a lot of design flaws on
how it was designed. Never put the outside buffet entrance right next to the kids pool area. It was always wet, slippery and nasty feeling. Will not cruise on the ship again. I actually like Epic over this ship. Less
