We joined Epic on 18 September and after reading negative reviews we decided to take them with a pinch of salt as we Brits say. We are 61 and 65 and married for 42 years. My husband is ex British Merchant Service so knows a thing or two about ships. Our arrival was seamless, we had a nice lunch in the buffet and soon went to our stateroom. No problems there and if you turn the tap (faucet) on to much of course you get too much water! We usually ate at Taste for breakfast and dinner and have no complaints about the food or service which were both excellent. We did go to Cagney's, La Cucina and Le Bistro and thought Le Bistro was the best. We usually had lunch in the buffet and yes it could be repetitive but buffets are! We always found a sunbed on deck and when we went on the water chutes we didn't have to queue for long. The entertainment was fine, we saw the Blue Man show, Legends and Howl at the Moon.

We have to say that every member of staff we came in contact with was polite, helpful and very friendly.

We would recommend Victor Bodden Tours in Honduras. We went ziplining and the day was superb and they really looked after us, nothing was too much trouble - we booked on line not through the ship.

If I have to nitpick I would say the bar prices were too high but hey you don't have to drink. All in all we had a great holiday and would choose NCL again.

Wonderful back to back cruise on Epic

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 12192
Spacious, plenty of storage, very well laid out. Comfortable bed. Balcony afforded great views. Cabin steward was very good and the cabin was always cleaned thoroughly with fresh towels.
