The Food Since all restaurants offer a variety of culinary choices any evaluation of food is influenced not only by personal taste but also by what items are selected from the menu. For example on the first night my wife and I ate at the Manhattan Room one of the ships main dining areas. She had a chicken dish which she evaluated as \"OK\" while I had scallops which were very good. Like all public areas on the Epic the layout and décor of the Manhattan Room was a tribute to the ships designers. Wide open and \"airy\" the Manhattan Room had the look and feel of a fine dinner theater. In fact I was somewhat surprised when our dinner host (one of NCLs executives) informed us that the Manhattan Room was not a specialty restaurant. The other main dining room appropriately called \"Taste\" was also extremely well laid-out and pleasing to the eye. At the center of Taste is a beautiful chandelier (claimed to be the largest at sea) that spirals down from the deck above. Although I did not eat in Taste I am told that the menu is the same as the Manhattan Room so I would assume our assessment of the food would have been about the same (i.e. \"OK\" to \"very good\" depending on the entre selected and of course personal taste).
Conclusion While onboard one of NCLs executives asked me what I thought of the ship and what type of client it would be best suited for. Without hesitation I responded that the Epic would be most appreciated by the client who has been on many cruise ships and now wants to experience something truly unique. Consistent with that its no coincidence that my wife booked the 15-year anniversary cruise for Direct Line Cruises staff on the NCL Epic and now that weve gotten a small \"taste\" of it we can hardly wait until September when we set sail on the Epic for 7 nights.

Vacationing aboard a cruise ship is a great way for you and your partner to spend quality time together. The intimacy of the ship is just as important as on the ship when selecting a vacation on a cruise ship. Almost all extended cruise ships dock in a port and these ports are often located in another country but not always. You will want to consider a cruise line that offers stops in exotic and romantic ports to make the most out of your vacation destination. These ports may include but are not limited to the Hawaii Mexico the Bahamas or other parts of the Caribbean. Hawaii Mexico the Bahamas and the rest of the Caribbean all have a number of cruise ship ports. Additional ports can be found in the Untied States and overseas. What many passengers enjoy most about these particular ports is their climate. Because the climate and the overall weather could have an impact on the romance aboard your ship since tropical weather tends to add to the romance in the air.
Cruises ships are often viewed as large oversized vessels. However the size of the cruise ship you are interested in vacationing on is also likely to determine the level of intimacy on board. A smaller cruise line may be your best bet if it is intimacy that you want. More passengers often make it difficult to have on board private moments and larger cruise ships have more passengers. A number of romantic cruise lines target their smaller cruise ships to couples looking to vacation alone. In addition to the size of the ship the style and décor of the ship may determine whether or not you can experience romance on board. As previously mentioned there are a number of cruise lines that target couples looking to vacation alone. Part of that targeting may include creating a romantic environment. You may find romantic cabins room service and other similar services on romance-themed cruise ships.
