For our evening entertainment onboard the Epic, we went to see “Legends” where celeb impersonators perform. On the bill that night were Tina Turner, Madonna, and Elvis. They were very good and I loved the back-up singers/dancers. But it wasn’t my favorite entertainment onboard. It’s hard to beat Blue Man and Second City when it comes to being wowed.

For dinner, I was very lucky and honored to be invited to dine in the Epic Dining Room, which is otherwise reserved for guests staying in the suites aboard the ship. The whole suites area is incredible with a private outdoor bar, club, gym, and swimming pool, all very well-appointed.

The dining room was gorgeous and very modern and the food was stellar. If you can afford a suite aboard the Epic, it is definitely worth it for the privacy and the dining alone, let alone the suites themselves. I only got a quick peek while I was walking through the halls, but they were definitely rock star worthy.

The kiddo spent another late night at Recess and I couldn’t have been happier. Nothing better than when parent and kid are both happy and doing what they want to be doing. And I felt so save with her at the kids’ club. The staff was so nice and any time I called, they always knew exactly where she was and what she was doing. It makes it much easier to relax and have a good time when you know your kid is safe and sound!
