Reviews are accurate

We chose this cruise because of the date and the home port. We cruised the last two times on the Oasis and wanted to go to other destinations. If you have read the reviews that others have posted they are spot on. ...

Spring Break meets Low staffing & Low Morale

Embarkation was smooth. Unfortunately several groups of college students on Spring Break basically took over. They were rude and immature. The crew seemed to be very short staffed. I had a waitress in the Manhattan ...

Great time

The Epic is a large ship, so there is always a lot to do. We sailed Jan 23 for 10 days so some of the concerns we had heard with not being able to get chairs to sun ourselves were not a problem at all. I think this ...

Freestyle cruising is just lazy cruise planning

Freestyle cruising they call it. They say it empowers you to cruise how you want to. In reality, it just means you have to do all the work. There's nothing waiting for you once you get on-board unless you scheduled ...

Would advise everyone to never go on the Epic. We have been on several ships and this ship was a waist of my hard earned money. The servers were the worst. On several occasions I had to ask the staff to smile. When ...
