  3. Norwegian Epic
My husband and I were part of a group traveling on the EPIC. The ship is beautiful. We loved the free style cruising offered. The food is great wherever you eat, wherever time you choose. The cruise personnel were all very friendly. The shows were all great. The one outstanding offer was the single passenger cabins. More cruise lines should offer them.

The only thing that we had problem with is that the stateroom we had was smaller to us than others in the same category on other lines. We both thought that the bathroom facilities should be all together in a bath, rather than the tub/shower on one side the toilet on the other, and sink to itself. We would never be comfortable if we had visitors to our cabin. One other thing, that we found, my husband and I are both cancer survivors, so whenever we went to certain shows, bingo, certain places to eat, or wanted to go to the Service Desk on the next level below, it required us most often, to have to travel through areas of the casino where there were smoking around us. We saw parents with young children having to travel through such areas. We both just felt that it should have been better thought out in the layout and planning of the casino.

Our cabin could have been wider in size. Unique closet and storage space offered. Bathroom facilities should be altogether with a door to be closed off when needed other than a curtain. The halls could be wider for handicap persons to travel through, especially when the cabins are being made up, and the cabin stewards carts are situated outside the room. One thing that not only the EPIC but on other cruise lines as well. There should be additional power outlets for persons traveling with and needing to utilize their medical CPAC machines at night because of sleep apnea. Running power codes across the floor and having to get up to use the bath area during the night is a problem
