Extra perk offers were not enough to do this cruise again. Mini suit beds are hard and to short even for a 5'11 man feet hung over the bed. NO deck chairs available the entire cruise. People reserving deck chairs very early in the morning even though not used in alot of cases until late morning or early afternoon. NCL di d not enforce the 1 hour reserve chair rule even after complaints from passengers. The food top deck was bad and no change in menue same old same every day. Runny eggs and greesey bacon for breakfast. Long lines top deck for the bar taking as much as 20 minutes to get a drink. Top deck di d not have enough chairs to accommodate the number of people on board. Lounge entertainment was almost non existent except for a guy with a geutair. AS FAR as I'm concerned my wife and I was robbed $3600 for this cruise. NEVER AGAIN! Read Less

It pains me to write this review. NCL has really gone down hill. This was my 6th cruise with NCL and I can see how things are deteriorating from my previous experiences. The service on this ship was horrendous as well as the quality of the food at all levels. The ship was overcrowded and you wait and wait and wait for one of TWO bar tenders to make you a drink. It seemed like many on the staff were walking around with a chip on their shoulder and you would barely see them crack a smile. The cruise director Pedro is a complete joke and I can't believe they can't find someone better than this to represent fun and energy. The ship is tired and is in need of a makeover. The main thing I took away from this ship was the extremely rude and poor service of the staff at many levels. I think it is very unlikely we will consider going on another NCL cruise and start looking at MSC or Princess instead. NCL nickels and dimes you any chance they get and they do not appear to appreciate you as a passenger or customer. Read Less

We were not at all impressed with the Epic. We have cruised 20+ times on almost every cruise line, and chose the Epic because we enjoyed the food on the Breakaway so much. We even talked friends into going with us. In a nutshell, here are our issues: (1) Too many people are crammed on this ship. Even with reservations for EVERYTHING, you spend most of your time waiting in line. (2) They said the "bathroom" was modeled after European bathrooms. We lived in Europe for 12 years and traveled to almost every country. Never did we have such a setup. The toilet is in what can only be described as a shower stall IN the cabin; the shower stall is also IN the cabin, as is the sink. The only privacy you have is a curtain between you and the bed. (3) The cabins are very small--even the balcony cabins are claustrophobic; I am 5'4", and my feet were hanging off the bed every night. We've sailed in everything from an inside cabin on Carnival Liberty to a suite on Celebrity Reflection. Never have we been in such a tiny space. (4) There are a lot of different entertainment options after dinner, but they are much too small to accommodate the number of passengers trying to get in. (5) The check-in appointment for embarkation was not even necessary. The lady at the counter checking us in had no idea what I was talking about. We sat in this huge gym-like room with about 4000 other sweaty people for an hour and a half waiting to board. Disembarkation wasn't much better. We've sailed from Pt. Canaveral before and not had such issues. (6) The food on the Breakaway was MUCH better than the Epic. For example, we suggested to the friends we brought with us that we not miss the "Seafood Buffet" night, because on the Breakaway it was amazing with lobster tails and crab legs and all other kinds of seafood. How many ways can one cook shrimp anyway? (7) The ship wasn't nearly as clean as it should have been. The public bathrooms only seemed to get attention when people complained. I complained twice. All in all, we were very disappointed in this ship Read Less
