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 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).
Many ships have day care centers. These child care centers are centers that benefit both moms and dads and their children. Because a cruise ship is likely to have passengers of all various ages many child care centers are grouped together by ages. The cruise lines employ counselors each with childcare education experience that are there to make sure everyone in these small age groups have an amazing time. The few services activities and centers listed above are simply a few of the many that are targeted to kids aged twelve and under. You may want to think about scheduling your next family trip aboard a cruise ship if you are pleased with the above pointed out services activities and child care centers.
One of the most popular activities found aboard a cruise liner is a gaming room. Game rooms are common on the majority of cruise liners. They provide children under the age of twelve a safe place to have a good time and be a child. Numerous cruise ship arcade spaces are staffed with the cruise lines workers however this must not discourage you from keeping an eye on your child. When leaving them alone in an arcade space you are motivated to use your finest judgment. All vacation cruise ships are equipped with a swimming pool. In addition to an adult sized swimming pool wave pools can typically be discovered aboard a number of popular family themed cruises. A wave pool is a swimming pool in which there are artificially generated reasonably large waves similar to those of the ocean. Wave pools are most common in water parks and are very popular with children under the age of twelve.
