  3. Norwegian Epic
This is our 5th trip, the 2nd with Norwegian. Our flight departed from Toronto on time, we landed in Fort Lauderdale than we took the bus down to Miami Port. The embarkation went pretty fast there are a lot of people embarking at the same time on this ship around 4100 people and on this trip the ship was full. The food is just great, we just enjoyed so much the food at the Garden Café Buffet, you can eat when ever you want and they have a lot to choose from, we also tried the Manhattan Room, the service and the food are very good. We went to the Taste for lunch and the service was fast, the food was again very good. We went to have lunch twice at O’Sheehan’s, the first time was OK but the second time, my sandwich and the chips were damp, my better half had chicken wings, the server didn’t ask him if he wanted mild or hot sauce as per the other server at the table beside us, the service is not the same from one table to another…strange isn’t…. We liked the entertainment a lot, we saw Blue Man Group, The Second City show is pretty much the same that we saw on our previous cruise (Dawn), we did not really enjoy Legends in Concert (but this is only our opinion). We really found Cirque Dreams to be special, very entertaining and different, the dinner was great. This is the show to see, if you want to participate ask to be seated on the first floor but if you prefer not to interact go on the second floor this is what we did and the view is great we had a very lovely time. The Casino had a non-smoking section but the machine we wanted to try was on the smoking side we tried it anyway but no luck on this one… After two days at sea we stopped in Ocho Rios, Jamaïca we just went out for a walk and we found stuff you don’t need but you still buy them!! The next day we stopped in George Town, Grand Cayman Island we had a very sunny day so we took the tender to go on shore we didn’t stay very long we came back to enjoy our time on the ship. The last stop was in Cozumel, Mexico this time we didn’t disembark we were there many times lately. We did the same itinerary last year, but we wanted to try the ship. The ship is very BIG, they do have a lot of people working on this ship. Note: a special ‘’thank you’’ to José who took care of our room, he was very attentive and always greeted us with a great smile. We were greeted throughout the week with friendly smiles and hello from most of the staff, the personal working at the buffet were very attentive also, they always greeted you with a smile, a hello or took the time for a little chat that was very nice!  

Nice time on the Epic!
