The Norwegian Epic is "Epic" in size. The ship is a floating fortress that really has to been seen to get the magnitude of its size. Ship was just a little too big for our tastes. Too many people and average service. On previous cruises staff members remembered our names, greeted us chatted about their lives. Did not get much of this on the Epic. More like move em in and move em out cattle drive. We ate at most of the restaurants where you pay a cover charge. $15-$30 per person to eat at these specialty restaurants within the ship. Food was good with exception of the Chinese Restaurant. Worst Chinese food ever. Did not taste anything like Chinese food. Entertainment was good with performances by The Blue Man Group, Cirque of Dreams and a great Beatles tribute band that was really good. The Ice Bar was cool. No make that "COLD". We could not finish our drinks because we were freezing in there. What I did like about the ship was that you could view all of the ships menus and restaurants on your television. You could see the daily menus for the buffet and sit down plus specialty restaurants and then make a reservation right from your screen. You could also view port tours and book them from your room. I'll add more to this post later.
