Chose the Epic and this itinerary to introduce the kids to Europe. What a great week! Mini suite 13227 Great room with plenty of storage. Full walk in shower. Read many complaints about the bathroom set up, I disagree we actually preferred the layout compared to the bathrooms on Getaway and Escape. Food was fine, buffets were always busy with normal cruise fare. Dining rooms were all good with excellent service. Embarkation and Debarkation were as good as it gets. Miami should take some notes from how Barcelona handles. Elevators were fine, yes they were busy when shows get out or dinner ends but they were not that bad. The elevator set up is preferred on Getaway and Escape. Loved the Cirque Dreams show. We had premium seats well worth it. Food was pretty good also. Only real complaints are why close the pools at 6pm when sunset is 915pm? Most families were returning to ship at 530ish and kids wanted to go into pool. Also the art auctions have to just go away. They take up too much valuable space on Epic. Assuming NCL good place another bar/experience in its place and make far more revenue. Total Waste of space, my opinion. Great Staff, clean ship, overall great way to get a sampler of some European Cities.

Fantastic Time on the Epic!
