Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2014

Although I have traveled to the Caribbean many times before this was my very first cruise so I have nothing to compare it to. That being said It more than exceeded my expectations. From the moment we left port and sat listening to music, under warm sunny skies with a drink in hand, I was completely sold.

We had a room on the eleventh deck with a large balcony which was more than comfortable for a week at sea. Although narrow, it had plenty of storage, a comfy bed and the bathroom layout that had me skeptical at first, turned out to work out just fine. The ship was easy to navigate and since our room was near the stairwell I chose to use the stairs frequently rather than waiting for the elevator which seemed to take forever.

The party deck was well laid out and seemed to have plenty of chaises (some of which were starting to look worse for wear). Although we are an older couple we made use of the water slides frequently and used the pool mainly for taking a quick dip for cooling off since it was woefully small for a ship the size of the Epic. That being said, I'm not a big pool person so it suited me just fine, but someone who plans to swim a lot may be disappointed.
