Norwegian Epic Cruise Review by debbscruiser
- Sail Date: December 2016
- Destination: Western Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony
The food on the ship was very good. There are two main dining rooms,The Taste and The Manhattan room. Both served the same menus. The menu was limited and if you wanted something else like steak and lobster there was an up charge for this. I did not like paying extra for certain dishes on the menu. I felt like this was a way to "nickel and dime" your customers. We've already paid for the cruise so shouldn't have to pay extra for certain foods. I've cruised on Carnival and Celebrity lines and never had to pay extra for steak and lobster. Perhaps Norwegian should rethink this. The Garden Cafe was also very nice and the food was also very good. The garden cafe is very huge and we had no problem finding a place to sit and eat even though the ship seemed to be full to capacity. There is also several other areas to eat included in your cruise fare such as O'Shehans which is a bar type restaurant that served soups, wings and sandwiches. The food here was also very good.
Lots of entertainment on this ship. Only draw back was that we had to make reservations to see shows if the show was free or not. By the time we figured this out all shows were booked so we didn't see any show as the venues are quite small and only hold a limited amount of people.
Service on the ship was very good. The wait staff in all of the eating areas were very friendly and engaged in conversation with their patrons. By far the Norwegian line was the best cruise line we've cruised on. While there were children on board, there was not a whole lot of children running around which made the experience very enjoyable.
