Sail Date: Nov 2019

12 Day Mediterranean cruise on the Epic, Barcelona RT. My main criticism of this cruise was the Epic as a cruise ship. Having a friend who sailed on the Epic's maiden voyage and she giving it a less than sterling review I can now understand why.

This ship would be ideal for children, teens, and adults who enjoy all the water features on this ship except all that equipment came came at the expense of pool size. They could be could be filled with two teacups. in less than five minutes. On a transatlantic or cooler climes on the planet the top deck is mostly useless. The other group who would enjoy this ship are the confirmed gamblers who love a very large, very smelly casino located almost mid-ship.

To traverse the ship on deck six one has to wend your way through the people, noise, and smell of the casino to access the aft elevators. Elevators... only two banks of elevators,, one fore and one aft. Always long waits and once inside very dark, a muggers paradise :) . Cute little Christmas tree lights on the ceiling of the elevators and trying to see the floor buttons is impossible because they are not lit.
