Hi this is our first cruise ever, slightly nervous as not sure what to expect.

We have a mini suite and a studio booked on deck 11 forward.

We have booked, Blue man, legends and cirque dreams

Any tips would be greatly apreciated

I have been on 2 Med cruises and am booked on our third this coming September....We are a couple in our late 40's from Canada (so not sure if our interests will be the same) but, what questions do you have? What is your itinerary? If I have been to any of the ports you are visiting I would be glad to share our experiences/and or tips...

Look for reviews on this forum--it was a big help. And join your roll call thread.
Here's our review. I linked some pictures toward the last few posts.
We did this a year ago--the current itinerary is a little different, but major ports are the same, and Epic is a great ship.

Have you booked premiere seats for the Cirque? if not I would highly recommend it, for $10 extra the balcony seats let you enjoy your dinner whilst watching the show with no distractions!
Enjoy

Yup we have booked the premium seats, so hopefully that's a good thing.
