  3. Norwegian Epic
This was a last minute cruise. Booked a family mini suite deck 14. The ship was late leaving port on Saturday. Because they were loading heavy equipment and it was windy. The bar servers that the pool deck were kept busy this week. We never went to the main dining room. We eat in the garden buffet. One morning the wife wanted a bowl of cereal, got a box and a carton of milk. She took a spoon full and ended up spitting it out. She looked that the date on the carton of milk. It was 9 days past expiration date. Food was either over cooked or it was luke warm. First port of call was grand stirrup cay it's their beach day. Since I live in Florida I didn't go. Stay about an hour later, because they took a little while to get the ship in position because of some wind. Second port of call was ocho rios Jamaica, been here several time just got off the ship and walked around the port. Third port of call was Georgetown Grand Cayman this is a tender port, not sure why the Epic has such a time to get people off the ship but they do. More on that later. Fourth Port of call is Cozumel Mexico the wife and I went to town and she did some shopping. We've been to these ports so many times that we don't do shore excursions. As for self service by taking your own luggage off the ship we got in line at 7:10 am and was off the ship by 8:45am. the worst time ever.

Ship needs help
