Additional details

Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: Aft-Facing Balcony

The Epic has great food and bartenders, entertainment was good and many music venues to choose from. There is always something going on on board and plenty of lounge chairs to just relax if that’s what you are looking to do. The specialty dinners were terrific and worth the money.

The only downside is the size of the cabins are good for two passengers we had were three in a rear facing balcony cabin and the room is limited. The ships engine noise level in the rear of the ship at the H2O bar and next to the water slides is a bit too much and it gets way too loud for our liking. The breakfast choices at the buffets do seem to repeat a bit too much. We didn’t try the restaurants for breakfast but maybe that would be a choice to vary the food choices. Overall we had a great time and did like the free style dining and more relaxed dress code for the dinner venues.

Port Reviews

Barcelona

Park Guell, Sagrada Familia, Gothic Quarter and La Rambla a must see at this port.

Palma de Mallorca (Majorca)

Great port to explore on your own.

Cannes

If you like to shop at expensive shops this is the port for you.

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Beautiful city to tour and explore. We spent 3 days in Rome before the cruise and we still didn’t get to see all that we wanted to see.
