I read a lot of the blogs and comments on here. I have to say I love the Epic. I just did my second culinary cruise on board., I have to say NCl customer service is great. There where crew members from a year and half ago that remembered me. That speaks volumes. So what the toliet and shower are weird the room is curved. I think it rocks. Great food. Yes spend the money enjoy the upscale restaurants. $20 for Brazillian steakhouse is great. Considering most charge you $55. The buffet has great food as well. I love the Epic and NCl.
