Let's build a big ship, but forget some things

Sail Date: November 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
The Epic is a nice ,BUT when they made a bigger passenger capacity, it seems they forgot some things.

Increase the numbers, but keep the number of elevators for the smaller ship?

Keep the main dining rooms smaller, so passengers can wait over 30 minutes just to be seated, then wait inside for another while, making the time up to two hours? I found the wait staff frustrated with the delay times, as it was out of their hands. The Garden Cafe had a nice selection and the quality was quite good.

Now to have a shower in the micro stall and adjust the taps so the water temperature is consistent. Good luck!

Although it was a bit breezy, I was surprised how rough of a ride it was.

There was a stabilizer malfunction (so the captain said) one night which was making then ship lilt about 15%

There was broken bottles in all the bars and duty free. People were in the halls wondering what was going on, and kids wearing life jackets scared out of More their wits! Stopped the cirque show, but did start back up after the "stabilizer malfunction" was repaired. ( I guess that is the technical term meaning we f..ked up)

While docked at the Bahamas the generator quit Oh sorry "malfunctioned" .

For such a newer ship, a lot of thing go wrong on it!

The CD ans CDA's were very friendly and the musicians and the DJ's were professional and knew there stuff.

It's a great ship if you like walking, as it is soo big when the event you want to attend is at the other end of the ship. Less

Cabin review:

The solo cabins are a great idea. As much (or more) room than some insides that I have stayed in.The price is right.
