We took a 16-day cruise on the EPIC. An epic mistake. With no desire to impugn the people of Puerto Rico, the fact that what appeared to be ¾ of the passengers seemed to be from there, led to some of our complaints and culture shock. Here are some of the issues we found with this trip:

• Embarkation was delayed hours due to there having been an outbreak of some illness on the prior cruise. This caused us to have to stand in line for a little over two hours to embark.

• A note from the captain indicated that “more than 2 %” of the prior guests and crew were affected by the illness. (was it 2.5%, 25%, 50%????) The lack of communication was the beginning of a trend.
