If you can afford it choose to sail on a luxury cruise line. Now you have to compare the amenities of each luxury cruise line. The cabins on a luxury cruise ship tend to be the size of a suite on the mega cruise lines. Check the cruise lines brochure for square footage. Find out what is included on the different luxury cruise lines. Some include drinks and wine with dinner. Others require no tipping. Some include the airfare. These are all things to consider when you choosing which luxury cruise line to sail on. Spa and beauty treatments will always be paid for by you. In some cases the tours are included and in other they are not. Do your homework to get the best deal.
But in a few areas I did not perceive the unique design of the ship to be an advantage. For instance the exterior shape of the ship seemed a bit \"odd\" to me. The bow is somewhat \"stubby-looking\" and the stern is \"squared-off\" so that the ship does not have a \"sleek\" appearance from the outside. Adding to the irregular look is a massive 3-deck appendage that was seemingly \"plopped\" on top of the front section as an afterthought (or more likely to further maximize the ships interior space). Obviously the ships designers had to make some \"trade-offs\" to accomplish everything they did inside the ship and after all from a passengers perspective the interior design is far more important. The decor of the Epic is modern and somewhat more \"toned-down\" than other NCL ships. Getting around was not quite as easy because of the ships unique interior design. Rather than having its public areas running at a uniform width through the center of the ship the Epics interior gave the illusion of being designed that way but in several different places the interior width of the ship would seemingly vary and you would go to the right or to the left to enter another venue. So just when I thought I had seen the entire ship I would discover a new area. Having been on over 50 cruise ships I found the layout of the Epic to be very interesting and \"refreshing\".
Certainly everything is brand new and there are certain bragging rights when you can say \"I was on the first voyage of ship XYZ.\" But the first cruise is sometimes a shake-out cruise. The staffs probably havent worked together before and are still trying to come together as a team. They may be inexperienced and going through on-the-job training. And of course a ship is a massive construction project just like building a new apartment or office building and just like a new building a new ship may have glitches in the plumbing or the wiring to be worked out. If you want perfection on your cruise you may want to make sure that youve chosen an established ship.
In addition to a swimming pool and an arcade room a lot of cruise ships have an onboard film theater or a performance stage. To identify if the movies on the ship are suitable for your child you should always make sure to check the cruise ships movie schedule. Restaurants and other dining centers on your cruise ship are likely to cater to kids under the age of twelve. Lots of restaurants have kids menus. These menus usually consist of tasty but kid sized meals. The cost of your kids meals will differ from ship to ship; nevertheless numerous cruise ships provide discount rates on meals for children under the age of twelve. On some ships food is included with the total cost of your cruise.
