Sail Date: Apr 2019
Cabin: Family Balcony
Traveled with children

To begin, this is not the first time we have sailed with NCL it is the 7th for me and the 9th for my Wife dating back to 2005. It is the very first negative review I have submitted on NCL.

We have even sailed on the Epic before and enjoyed it very much. But alas, that is old news.

To begin with, the Epic is a Large Ship. Built in 2010 and refurbished in 2015, it is 155,873 tons, 1,081 feet long, and holds 4,100 passengers. To support this ship it claims a crew strength of 1,724. Now, I will not argue with them on their stats but I must wonder where they hide all these crew members because they were not evident throughout our cruise.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony

Cabin B3

Strange. Wavy from door to balcony. Bathroom facilities separately placed around the entire cabin. Adequate storage areas but located behind the couch back, above the bed, under the sink, etc. I guess it was sufficient but very different.

Port Reviews

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Friendly. Enjoyed shopping and sightseeing.
