My wife and I joined friends on the Epic in march 2020. This was our first cruise. Sailed out of San Juan. Easy and organized embarkation and disembarkation. We stayed in balcony suite 11056. We liked it. Loved the Brazilian Restaurant, Cagne's Steakhouse and the Hibachi Grill. We would recommend eating at all three. Casino was nice. Our cabin Porter Alan was AWESOME. Every staff member we had contact with was pleasant. Bars were crowded but we managed just fine. Danced the nights away. We were slightly overdressed. Not that we dressed to the nines....... but most people were in extremely casual clothing. We both loved sailing the Epic. Ports of Call were San Juan =okay ...it was the port of call. Oranjestad was nice. Curacao was fun. In Bonaire we should have walked the town but didn't because we did an excursion. St Lucia was okay and St Kitts was fun. We went on a few excursions. One was in utvs in Curacao....would not do again. Just say No. Another no go was the St Lucia Rainforest Tram. Our guide was the sweetest most informative girl. Just did not make up for the boring ride. The Zip lines there sounded like people were having a ball. Many venders at most port of call wanting to take you on adventures. We both thought that on our next trip that is the way we would go. Way more freedom to change plans that way. Our best excursion was one the wives found and talked us into around the island of Bonaire.

Wife and I had a great time!

Comfortable. Was fine for us. Buy a case of water and have it waiting for you in cabin. We were told that, and we were glad we did.
