Today we slept in in our comfy Epic cabin and then went straight for the pool after a quick breakfast. I finally tried out all of the slides. And despite being a day at sea, the lines were pretty reasonable. The green slide was a bit fast for me, which explains why my daughter loves it and the purple one was a little dark. I like to see where Iâ€™m headed. But I really enjoyed the yellow and orange slide with the â€œtoilet bowl,â€ especially since you go down that one in a tube.
Even though we were on the Epic for a whole week, I still could not get over that the ship has three water slides. Crazy!
For lunch we went to the â€œSecond City Murder Mystery Lunch,â€ which was a lot of fun. A lot of it was improv and even my junior traveler got a kick out of it. The food was very good and it was nice to share a table with strangers and work together to â€œsolveâ€ the crime. It is definitely something I would recommend doing on an Epic cruise.
