  3. Norwegian Epic
We went on this same itinerary last year and loved it! We have cruised on the Epic before. This cruise was not what we expected. The elevators were like cattle cars. They were always filled and took forever to get where we wanted to be. The dining in specialty restaurant was very good. The problem was availability after excursions. The staff did not manage the numbers of people that wanted to eat. Lines were fifty deep. The one restaurant opened had an hour wait! This is unacceptable!! They would only have food out by the pool. They knew the numbers of peeps coming aboard and did nothing to alleviate this mess !! On a positive note the entertainment was phenomenal ! Each and every production was first rate and totally awesome!!I would not go on this ship again!! Nor would I recommend it!What would happen in an emergency ? Scary thought.!!
