When looking at vacationing aboard a cruise liner they are many people who are unconscious of what to expect. Individuals that have never had in a cruise liner before are inclined to be a little bit confused when it concerns cruise ship destinations and ports of calls. If you are interested in using some kind of cruise it is advised that you familiarize yourself with cruise liner destinations and ports of calls. A port of call is a termed that is used by many cruise companies. It is used to describe stops that a cruise ship will make along the way. If you are curious about booking a vacation aboard a ship that makes multiple port stops you will want to interpret the ports available. Vacationing on a cruise liner is enough to produce any vacation perfect but selecting the correct ports of calls will create a vacation even more enjoyable.
On a ship this size I would recommend that there be no more than 60 joint owners so each can have two cabins and will have the option of converting those two cabins into a two room suite. To keep the numbers simple lets say that this ship has 50 buyers who each buy 2% of the ship. Buy in cost per owner would then be $10000. If there were only ten buyers then the acquisition cost per buyer would be $50000. $50000 will not buy much of a house on land but on this ship it would buy 10% of a ship like the Vergina Sky and twelve cabins that could be converted into a fairly large home. At the economy end of the scale a co owner could buy 1% of an economical cruise ship for about $5000. However it is not necessary for all co owners to have equal shares in the ship. Ownership can easily be divided up into 1% increments. If one buyer wanted 5% then his cost of acquisition would be $25000. He would be entitled to 5% of the ships cabins and would have five votes on operations and management of the ship such as itinerary planning.
One of the hallmarks of NCLs acclaimed \"Freestyle Cruising\" is the choice of dining options and not surprisingly the Epic takes this feature to a new level. In addition to the two main dining areas the Epic offers 17 other dining venues each with its own cuisine and ambiance. This includes the spacious main buffet area (the \"Garden Cafe\") in which the food was consistently fresh and of high-quality (albeit with somewhat less variety than weve experienced on some other ships). It also includes the poolside grill (\"Spice H2O\") \"OSheehans\" (a huge sprawling pub that became the meeting place and \"social nucleus\" for many of the ships guests) and several specialty restaurants such as La Cucina Italian restaurant (which was even more attractively decorated on the Epic than on other NCL ships) Tepanyaki Japanese grill (much larger than on other NCL ships) and Le Bistro French restaurant just to name a few. Each of the specialty restaurants has a \"cover charge\" (which ranges from $10 to $35 per person) but in my opinion they are all well worth the money.
The Service A cruise passengers perception of onboard service is so often dependent upon who their stateroom attendant was and which waiters / waitresses served their meals. Since my wife and I started Direct Line Cruises there have been several instances in which different clients on the same exact cruise would report radically different service levels. So at best any evaluation of service should be taken only as a generalization based on limited individual experiences while onboard. Having prefaced this part of my review (to \"cover my tail\" in case the reader has a different experience) my wife and I found the service on the NCL Epic to be consistent with what weve experienced on other NCL cruise ships (i.e. very good with only minor exceptions).
