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).
You entered the stateroom through a door between a shower stall and a toilet stall (each with a heavily \"frosted\" enclosure). A curtain separated these areas from the main part of the stateroom which among other things included the bed a couch storage closets / cabinets and a sink. The advantage of having the sink outside of the toilet and shower area is that one occupant can use the sink while another is using the shower or toilet (a convenience that you dont often find in traditional cruise ship staterooms). In addition the unique design of the stateroom provided much more storage space than is typically found in a conventional stateroom of similar dimensions. However despite that I found the stateroom to be very \"tight\" (particularly in the cabins that have the bed nearer to the entrance door than to the balcony door) and overall I must admit that I would have preferred a more conventionally designed stateroom configuration or one of the larger deluxe balcony (\"Category D\") staterooms on the Epic).
In addition to Blue Man Group the NCL Epic showcased \"Legends In Concert\" which featured impersonated performances by Elvis Madonna Tina Turner Michael Jackson and other \"super-stars\". If you like this sort of thing you will probably enjoy it very much. Otherwise you may find it to be \"OK\" as I did. Another Epic \"first\" is Cirque Dreams and Dinner which is performed by an exceptionally talented group of acrobats in a special theater-in-the-round called the Spiegel Tent. Several of our staff members saw this show and said that it was very good but perhaps a bit too long. My wife and I saw a very different show in the Spiegel Tent. Our 3-year-old granddaughter who we were able to bring with us is a big fan of \"Dora the Explorer\" and \"Diego\" and she just loved the Nickelodeon character breakfast which in addition to Dora and Diego also featured \"Sponge Bob Square Pants\" \"Jimmy Neutron\" and others. In an exclusive deal with NCL the Nickelodeon characters are presently appearing on the Epic and the NCL Jewel (which now sails year-round out of New York City) and will eventually appear on several other NCL ships.
I was invited to attend the exclusive 2-night (July 2 - 3 2010) pre-inaugural sailing for NCLs newest and largest ship the Norwegian Epic. Departing from NY City the sailing began with the ships naming ceremony which was hosted by comedian Jeff Garlin and featured the ships godmother Reba McEntire. Adding to the festivities was the Macys 4th of July Fireworks show which was broadcast live from the Epic on national television (WNBC). It included musical performances by Justin Bieber Enrique Iglesias and LeeAnn Rimes. As I have experienced many times in the past the folks at NCL really know how to throw a party! But lets focus on their new ship the Epic.
