We recently sailed on the Epic and loved it. Your kids will probably love the huge slides, ropes course, climbing wall. Read up on the children's programming for the age group your kids are in. The Epic is a big ship and there will lots of people, and lots of kids due to spring break, so hopefully crowds will not bother you. I suspect you may be in a suite based on the OBC you mentioned. If so, no one, IMO, has better suite perks than NCL.
I can try to answer specific questions, if you have any.
