This was our 4th NCL cruise, 2nd on Epic. We chose this and booked it barely 10 weeks before sailing (unlike us) because I was becoming a burned-out healthcare worker, and a week opened up for me. Another major factor was that it was home-ported in San Juan, and we'd had a great experience there 5 years ago as well. All the ports of call were new to us.
--on board musical entertainment: "Priscilla: Queen of the Desert musical"; Don Juan--both his solo piano-bar shows and the new Queen tribute show he put together; Sabor Latino--and just the overall increased Latin flavor of the music as well.
Love having a balcony. Just right size for 2. The "wavy" design does make it a bit narrow in places and hard to move past each other or the bed. Bed's comfy. Cabin's well-kept and clean. We don't mind the odd bathroom layout--but some folks hate it. Only thing we'd change is more room to hang things up to dry.
