Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Courtyard Villa with Balcony

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this ship after reading so many reviews, but during my time onboard I fell in love with this ship and wouldn’t hesitate to go on the Epic again.

We boarded in Barcelona, and were met with long lines checking in at the terminal. While I found this a bit of a speed bump to the start of our cruise I didn’t let it bother me. Everyone was doing their best to get us onboard as quickly as possible, and let’s face it sometimes that takes time.

The layout of the ship didn’t bother me too much. Every ship has its own quirks. I did miss the lack of windows and quiet spaces to sit during the day, but they do make the specialty restaurants available to use when they are closed so there are still plenty of quiet places to go. I also missed the running track, but this ship has the biggest and best set up gym I’ve seen on any ship.

Cabin Review

Courtyard Villa with Balcony

We were in the 2 bedroom suite. We found the cabin to be spacious and more storage than you could possibly use. Maybe we just say that because we live quite happily in 200 sq feet at home. Yes, that shower is to die for. As for the tub, didn’t try it out, but I’m sure it is equally to die for.

I would like to add that we were fortunate to look at most cabin types on this cruise and I did not find any fault with any of them. Yes, some are quirky, and have a small sink (which honestly I don’t see what all the fuss is about with the sink and the bathrooms on this ship...time to get over it.) but I felt all cabin types were more than sufficient. Plenty of space and storage.
