Sailing into 50

I chose this cruise based on the itinerary. We chose to embark from Barcelona because it was much closer to the port and I prefer starting my cruise on a weekend day. The embarkation was very easy and stress free. ...

An EPIC Experience

I really enjoyed my cruise to the mediterranean. However, I think the ship could add a little more diversity for different cultures. It seem like most of the entertainment was geared toward one particular ...

Had heard so many negative reviews......

I was so pleasantly surprised at how much I loved the Epic after reading so many reviews of people who didn't. The "bathroom situation" turned out great. I was traveling with a friend and we simply pulled the ...

Fun Couples Cruise with Friends

We chose this cruise because of the convenience of Port Canaveral and the ports of call. The Epic, while not the most beautiful ship, offered lots of dining and entertainment options. I think it is better suited ...

Travel into Miami and the port is simple and uneventful. The appearance of the Epic is that of a hotel that has been turned on its side. It's massive. Embarkation is straightforward and without problems. Our cruise ...
