This was our first time on NCL and we were not disappointed. Easy on and easy off. Stateroom was roomy for the 2 of us and had enough storage for about everything I own in life! First time with a balcony and now spoiled going forward. Had dining plan and ate at Italian, French, and Steakhouse restaurants which were all excellent....French was the best. Also spent a few extra $ for the Cirque dinner show which is a must do. This is a small intimate venue and all seats offered a great view of the show. A big surprise to us was that this was a spring break cruise....I'm old... what would I know. So along with this we got loads of young kids drinking and all that comes with that. However the ship is so huge we easily managed to find pockets of quiet. The main shows were superb. Priscilla Queen of the Desert is a show about drag queens and if you are not offended you should go see it. Broadway style talent for sure. Burn The Floor is a high energy dance show. Very entertaining. NCL has you make reservations for all the shows. We made reservations online rather than wait until onboard. Saves loads of time and frustrations. All crew members with which we had interactions were pleasant and worked extremely hard to please us. We did have some very minor complaints but they're not even worth mentioning. Overall the Epic is a nice ship and worth every penny

Cabin Review

Mini-Suite with Balcony
Cabin MC 9259
I saw lots of complaints online about the staterooms but we were quite satisfied. We had a mid ship mini-suite. Yes, the sink is in the open and yes, the bathroom/shower had frosted glass doors and yes, the bed had a curve to the foot and yes, you couldn't walk side by side.
BUT it's a ship stateroom not the Hilton. It was comfortable and suitable.
