NCL EPIC

Year: 2011

Sailed on the NCL Epic on 23 April 2011. This is a new ship. The service was excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
It is a state of the art ship will lots to attract familes, singles . They have the new single studio suites . There are lots of these suites. 
They have functions for the singles and the studios have access to a common living area for single functions.  Great concept. 
Lots to do for familes onboard. We tried bowling,and the water slides. The Blueman group were excellent. Very different show. Everyone enjoyed it.
We went to Cagney's steak house and had a fantastic dinner. Everyone enjoyed the freestyle dining and not having to get dressed up or a set time for dinner.
We went to the Ice bar. It was a lot of fun. We took lots of photos. Being from NS we did not mind the cold at all. We also went to the Cirque Dreams dinner show.
We also went to second city and Legends. 
The ship holds 4100 but it does not feel crowded. It has a lot of space. We enjoyed the Spice H20 bar and adult only area with pool. 
I felt the pool in the main area was too small. For the size of the ship the pool should have been larger. 

The cabin layout is different. We were 4 to a cabin and we made it work just fine. It would not be workable without the privacy curtin. 

We tried the room service and I did not care for it. Its slow and the food is cold when it gets there. They also have 5.00 pizza delivered anywhere on the ship.
We tried it once and the kids liked it, but it was too salty.
