I know I'm going to get hit, but I actually liked the layout of the Epic. Including the bathroom. I think if they would have made the doors a little more opaque it would have gone over much better. As for the outside, well it grows on you, but it could be a little less boxy.
My apologies... I wasn't clear in my post above. When I stated that one Epic is enough, what I really meant was that one flagship per line is enough. OK, maybe two twins. NCL has some wonderful ships in the Jewel class, all of which are still young by today's cruise standards. I keep thinking back to Carnival's Fantasy class of ships. They built six, then went on to build a new class (Destiny), and subsequently built two more Fantasy class ships (Elation, Paradise). And, they're still updating these ships up to 20 years later. I wouldn't mind seeing a couple of new Jewel class ships.
