Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2018
  • Destination: the Southern Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

If the worst part was the embarkation, you're fine. Food solid all around with plenty pf variety. Entertainment amazing, just make sure you reserve. Activities well planned and more than enough. Please ignore people who are never happy, complaining about stupid stuff while refusing to see the bigger picture. If you couldn't find something to eat or do on this ship, the problem is you, not the Epic. You go on a megaship then complain about it being crowded. Doesn't make sense. All these small things could happen any time. Sure, they need a bigger port, but miniscule detail. Embarkation started badly, but ended smooth and once on board it was forgotten. Complaining about the room? It's a place to sleep, shower, and poop. The layout is non issue for me. It was all around fantastic and highly recommended. The cabin was functional and works. I like the separate toilet and shower. Itinerary was good, a little disappointing not getting into great stirrup, but I get it. Jamaica is beautiful. Andre, the cruise director is fantastic. If you want quiet and relaxing in luxury, go on a smaller niche ship. The pros far outweigh the cons. At the end of the day, you're on vacation.

Cabin Review

Cabin BX 9276

Different layout. But very functional with plenty of storage space. Bed super comfy. Didn't mind the separate toilet and shower.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Ocho Rios

Amazing. Guides were great. Locals a bit aggressive, but I work in a jail so never a problem being assertive to say no.

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Not a very charming town. Heard the beaches are beautiful, however.


Locals again a bit aggressive. Would have stayed on shore longer had we didn't have to dodge people bugging to take us places.
