Spending the week on NCLâ€™s Epic with my daughter in tow as truly a fabulous experience. The ship was gorgeous. Our balcony stateroom was well-appointed and much bigger than a would have imagined with a great shower. The crew was stellar. We met wonderful people. The entertainment was top-notch. The food was delicious and well-varied. The programs for kids couldnâ€™t have been better. And the ports of call were great fun.
I love the freestyle cruising concept. I was able to do and eat and see what I wanted when I wanted. I would highly recommend booking meals and entertainment ahead of time so you donâ€™t end up disappointed. And be sure to ask questions when you have them. The choices are many and you want to pick the best ones for you.
But I would highly recommend NCL and the Epic any time you choose to cruise and I look forward to cruising with them again soon.
