Princess Cruiser Returns From the Norwegian Epic

Sail Date: February 2012
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
Embarktion: Great

Ship Itself: Nice ship but too big for our liking. Can be very crowded and noisy most of the time. Great ship for families, .

Food: We ate all dinners in either the dining rooms, Cagneys or Le Bistro and the food was good (not great but average)
Breakfast and lunches at buffet were good but very crowded
Osheganan (british pub)( probably not spelled right) very good food

Service: Our steward Willie was a marvel. Big smile could not do enough. Loved him.

2 waiters in Taste; Gladys and Janine wonderful service .

I found most (NOT ALL) employees did their job very efficiently but there was a lacking of smiles and a welcoming feeling.

Cabin: #11169 Balcony Loved the shower. Biggest one we've experienced. The wave room was a little close to pass. The bed was great. Overall very good.

Entertainment: The Very Best I Have Seen On A Cruise Ship.

Ports: Very Good

Departing The Ship: More Excellent

Overall we enjoyed the cruise but would not sail again on the Epic. Just our personal opinion we enjoyed Princess service better and their food.Also we missed the promenade deck very much. Less

Cabin review: B611169 Large Balcony

Epic Cabin #11169 BF Large Balcony Bed was close to balcony. Was narrow for 2 people to pass. Great Shower. No problem with sink splashing. Entrance to toilet area would be very tight for larger people.

Went to Atlantis on our own. Atlantis was lovely but very expensive. Found the rest of the island not very nice.

Did all day tour with Bernards Tours. Was great. Island was not as pretty as I thought it would be. Could be due to the past hurricanes.

Had been to St Thomas before. Beautiful island
