Review of the Norwegian EPIC.

Universally good - well trained and attentive staff

Generally good entertainment

Beds are very comfortable, although a bit short. Tall people be alerted.

Good stabilizers, even in rough seas.

Universally bad- cabin

Other things that may or may not concern you:

Food is average in free dining areas. Don't expect to find shrimp cocktail, escargot, veal, sea bass. If that doesn't matter, no problem. Chefs do not know how to cook fish in main dining rooms. Other than salmon, it is always dry. Portions are small, although you can always ask for more and you'll be accommodated. The push is to go to paid dining rooms

Common areas have no quiet areas. No library to sit and read no game room.

There is no casino. Instead, common areas are filled with slot machines and gaming tables. This is everywhere including the outdoor pool area. No way to shield children from the gambling. It is everywhere.

Public rooms including main dining rooms and lounges have the most uncomfortable chairs. One cannot sit long before you have to get up and move around.

Most elevators do not ring or ring so softly, you have to be constantly scanning them or miss it.

Every lecture is designed to sell you something.

We rated the ship among the worst. The fact it was a mega-ship did not bother us.

Cabin Review

Family Balcony
Cabin B3
When you enter the cabin, you are in the bathroom. To the left is the water closet, to the right is a shower and sink. No privacy at all for the shower. It is smoked glass, but nothing is hidden. A curtain partially covers water closet. No pleasant to see companion on the pot through smoked glass. Cabin is so narrow, one must get out of the way to allow companion to walk through.
