This was our first cruise on Norwegian Cruise Lines. We have always gone on Royal Caribean for our former cruises. I was concerned as to how this ship would compare to Royal Caribean and also was concerned with the amount of people onboard and how that would be handled. We were very impressed. We never waited in line for anything! It was amazing how smoothly everything went. The employees were all friendly , accomodating and professional. The food in the regular restaurants was okay, but the buffet was excellent! And the restaurants were amazing. We loved Cagney's and Tempanyaki Restaurants!! The food was really great and the restaurants themselves were so nice. The Moderno bar had half price martinis for happy hour and that was good. The Ice Bar was a fun experience.

Food in the Manhattan Room and Taste were okay. Buffet was excellent! Restaurants were wonderful - especially Cagney's and Tempanyaki!

GREAT! We had a family balcony room. The bed was very comfortable!! Enjoyed the tub and shower - it made it roomier. Great balcony. Room was small but very sharp looking. Plenty of closet space and places to store things.

Plenty to do. We did not take advantage of many of the activities, but did enjoy watching the playoff football games on a huge TV at the rear of the ship. Casino was fun - huge compared to any other ships we have been on.

In Ste. Maarten take a taxi to the French side to go to the beach. or just take a water taxi to the beach on the Dutch side. You can rent lounges at both of these. Shopping was great too! St. Thomas - take a cab to Magen's Bay - nice beach. You can rent lounges here also. Good shopping. Don't miss Senor Frog's in Nassau :)

Great time. I would go on the Norwegian Epic again!!
