Booked this as a last minute birthday trip for my wife. Was a little anxious after reading the reviews after I booked. There was ABSOLUTELY no reason to be anxious. Arrived at port at 10:00 and was on the boat by 11:30. Tried to get passes to POSH they were sold out already and we were in the 4 group to board. Worked out OK as we spent days onboard at H2O Spice Cabin was fine and room was always clean. Had read many complaints about the layout but nothing wrong with it. Was actually helpful that one could use the bathroom while the other showered. Read that the shower was tiny and needed to be a contortionist to use. true if your 6 ft. 8 in. tall and have a 50 in. waist. Food was good except ordered French Onion soup the 1st day at Taste and all it was, was onion broth and onions. No cheese, no bread. Ship was completely booked but did not seem that crowded. All the pool areas were full of people on sea days but still had no problem getting around or service. Never had to wait more than a minute for elevators. Buffett was never a problem. Did not do Stirrup Cay. In Jamaica did not do any excursions. Just got off the ship and spent the day at Margaritaville. Now I know there are going to be complaints about the pier, which was being repaired/remodeled and was small. And if you were going to the shops you had to take a 10 minute walk or a cab. But if just accepted it, there was no problem. Grand Cayman did the same. Cozumel went to passion island which I would recommend for anyone who wants to spend time at the beach. Beautiful beach, plenty of drinks and food. Overall a good trip and would definitely sail on the EPIC again Did need to go to guest services twice to get a bar charge rectified. Disembarking was the worst part. One it was the end of the trip and 2, it was the only time really had to wait in line. Overall was a great trip and
