Really? I've never seen sticky buns on the Carnival ships like the ones on NCL. Celebrity has wonderful ones too.
They made them special for me.

Just kidding. They had them at the lido breakfast most mornings. They went fast though. Yummy!

We spent most time on board at Spice H2O. We were so busy though. I tried 2 of the 3 water slides, too. I remember going by Posh, it was up by the spa? I think.

A b2b would have been just about right. I think I would have found my way around.

They did say we'd get 2 drinks for $20, but 17 degrees, even with a fur coat, is way too cold for me

We did the behind the scenes tour ($55/ea) and really enjoyed it. The sheet folding machine was one of my favorites. They did let us on the bridge. We got to go into the coolers/freezers, and even got some samples in the pastry area!

Geez, I can't believe I missed the sticky buns on the one time I cruised with NCL and now I find out CELEBRITY has them!! As many times as I have been on Celebrity I never got a 1. WOW, I feel duped So glad you had a wonderful time Penny! We did the Ice Bar in Stockholm, it was great fun. Now to try the Ice Hotel..that would be amazing...

Now that we have ascertained that Norwegian, Celebrity, and Carnival have very addicting sticky buns. Btw, I can't find them shore side.

How was the Casino?

Well, the casino is HUGE. There were loads of people winning, unfortunately, I wasn't one of them. I did, however, play on their money for a very short time. I have had worse machines. I guess I should give up on video poker, but it's just so much fun. It would be a lot more fun if I'd win

Well, I think we are both due to win. I finally got back to even the last day. We'll have to cruise with Jim sometime so his luck will rub off on us.

How was the food compared to the Valor?

Penny, you're right. Video Poker is fun. I didn't have much luck in the casino on my latest cruise either, however, it wasn't really my money that I spent.

Long story short, my sister surprised me with a $40 onboard credit for my birthday, and I used that towards a BINGO session. At that BINGO session, I won $200, which I ended up spending in the casino on video poker and Blackjack.

Dwayne, I'd say the food was comparable to the Valor. However, NCL doesn't have the chocolate melting cake I'd have to give the edge to the buffet on the Epic, though. There was an amazing selection of all types of cuisine every day. Plus they had chili for the hot dogs, sauerkraut, too, and homemade potato chips.

Congratulations, MCPayne, I've never hit at Bingo.

Dwayne, you're right, Jim is really lucky. When we cruised with him on the Holiday, he kept all his luck to himself
