  1. Epic is no different than any other ship on any line with the guarantee selections.....some people end up with great cabins and others not so much.
  2. ......because this is exactly what trolls do. They post topics that they know will put people on both extremes. Just as you see with this topic where it ranges from 'pay what you owe them' to 'NCL customer service sucks'.
  3. Ehhh....this has to be a troll post. Finances so tight they can't pay for their cruise but didn't notice an extra $900. Come on.😒
  4. Obviously there is a reason or they wouldn't go through all the trouble to change it. It comes with cruising, all lines do it at times.
  5. LOL.....now we have an 'expert' trying to school the actual consumer advocate on how 'it works'. This is classic. I hope next time I cruise the hot tub is closed one day for an hour or so, according to the 'expert' by charge back case is rock solid.
  6. Everyone is different. For us Cheers absolutely makes sense. I never have a day where I don't drink at least 6 drinks. A couple of beers mid-day by the pool, two with dinner and at least two watching the live bands in the evening. Then there are the sea days where that total may double. When we factor in the coffee we start off with daily and the bottles of water we order every few hours it all adds up. .....but I am not one to analyze things down to the penny. I am willing to pay for the experience I want, that is why we cruise or do all inclusive type vacations. If squeezing every dime consumed my thoughts I would just do a motel 6 at the beach.
  7. They serve you the liter size bottles. We always have the water served from the pitcher and take our bottles to go.
  8. A good portion of reviews are full of exaggerated crap. People use them to try and settle a score, on the other hand 99% of people who are perfectly pleased with an experience will never document it. You have to take all that in context. I read reviews after we get home of every cruise we go on, usually I find a few that leave me scratching my head wondering if we were on the same ship.
  9. East......Western cruises are a dime a dozen.
  10. By what exactly? In my experience they sell the same things Carnival does.
  11. Yup. The mainstream lines are all so remarkably similar in their business model. I just can't understand how you can find so many negative differences that are so substantial they wouldn't 'go even if it was free'.
  12. I can do without the balcony, my bar tab is going to be expensive either way so I might was well get Cheers and enjoy it.
  13. I read this with a puzzled look on my face. I have been on pretty much every mainstream line, several times each with Carnival leading the count by a large margin. They all do most things the same way, in the spots where they try to be unique you will find something better and some worse than the competition. However, NCL in my experience is nothing like you describe. The food, just dishes just like other lines, ranged from okay to fabulous. For the entertainment, even on the biggest ships, there are only a couple of shows where reservations are recommended. You can still show up for those if seating is available. For the rest of them it was general seating just like Carnival does. Thinking of it, the cruise we took on the Escape last year may have been our best cruise ever.
  14. I don't think anyone knows how the new program will be set up.
