I ve cruised on the EPIC 3 times since it s inaugural and 2 times from Barcelona on the European cruise. I was a little disappointed this past september with the variety of food in the main dining room. Food was just OK..no wow factor as other cruise cies. Also i found that the staff (not all) were not as friendly as usual..did not say hi or good morning. Overall the cruise was just OK...not up to par with other cruises i ve taken with Norwegian cruise line.
The shows and entertainment on bord was fine. The embarkation/disembarkation process was great...fast and efficient.
Gym was great except that is you don t take a trx course and pay you can t use that room with all the equipment. Whereas on other Norwegian ships it s free..if there is no class you can use the equipment...so that was a little disappointing as i workout even on vacation.
Solo traveler...studio is perfect. Lounge perfect!
