  1. I also prefer the Epic over the Getaway! My 1st cruise with NCL was on the Epic. The bathrooms work for my family. Someone can shower and someone else can use the toilet.. Just coordinate when you get out 😉 We went on the Getaway last Feb and I kept thinking "I wish I booked the Epic again" So we sail on the Epic again thins summer 🙂
  2. My 1st cruise was on RC's Allure It was very nice, We LOVED the staff. We spent a good amount in the Casino. The next time we wanted to take a cruise RC didn't have a sailing the dates we needed so we looked at NCL, and because they had the exact dates we wanted, we booked and sailed on the Epic. I actually bought a small water package because we drink a lot of water(family of 4) and like to have it at night if we wake up thirsty. We never brought the bottles out of the room and if we wanted water when we were out and about on the ship, we just got the Ships water. It tasted perfectly fine. We spent the same amount of money in the Epic casino (maybe a little more but not much) and after our 1st cruise with NCL, I received an offer for a free cruise for 2 (pay taxes). We booked for last Feb and took the kids..So we had to pay for the 3rd and 4th guest.. After that cruise I got another offer for a free cruise for 2, Again we are taking the kids and paying for the 3rd and 4th passenger.. We are going on the Epic again to the Mediterranean for under $3,000 for 4 in family balcony room...There's MY incentive. I never received any offers from Royal Caribbean
  3. I just want to add that we did that cruise on the Getaway last Feb and LOVED it! (looks like you are on it now)
  4. A few years ago we were on the Epic and there was fog at the dock in Port Canaveral. We were doing "walk off" and they made us all wait on floor 7? (I forget the floor number) they just sat out in the water until it was clear enough and "our turn" to dock. I have Anxiety so I had booked our flight out the next day. I always worry about "what if" especially living in MA and having flights delayed due to weather but there were a lot of people who were missing their 1:30 flights. We didn't get off of the ship until after 1 pm and there was nothing open on board while we waited. It was CRAZY trying to get off and the people trying to get on. My parents live in Florida(Naples) and left their car at the hotel that we stayed at before the trip. Part of the parking special included transportation to the port and back to the hotel..thank god because you couldn't get a taxi or anything. It was just Chaos with people trying to re-book, find places to stay and finding rides.
  5. Loved your TR. So many helpful tips on the ports. We are sailing out of Rome on the Epic in July and then spending a few days in Rome after the cruise. My daughter will be celebrating her 16th birthday in Rome. We have sailed on the Epic before, out of Port Canaveral and wanted to sail on her again.
  6. My parents get them all of the time from Foxwoods Casino. They require them to come down on a certain day before a certain time to claim it to get people into the casino.. A lot of casinos do it (here in New England anyway) I got something from Plainridge park. I get great deals through the CAS so I haven't taken Plainridge up on theirs.
  7. I personally liked the Epic better. I know some don't like the bathrooms but they don't bother us..we are a family of 4.
  8. No clue, I just went to my stuff from the cruise and that was there with the drink card they gave me. So I assumed that was it..the drink card was a nice surprise..There was one for me, one for DH..I don't drink and my DH only drinks a little. so we didn't get the package. DH figured he would just buy a drink if he wanted any. with the drink card he went to the casino(and played)
  9. Thank you. Yes it was that card. I used it on our cruise in Feb.
  10. I have a question about the cards. I see the different tiers. Green says Jade, Pearl is a grey. So when you move up, you get a different color card correct? Do they say Jade, Pearl etc on them? I have a red card but it says "you're hot"... LOL
  11. So if it's not on now, will they add it when we get on the ship? Honestly doesn't matter to me, I thought that there was an option, but if not then I rather have it paid before we go on the trip.
  12. I honestly have no idea. I booked through the Casino and she asked me if I wanted to pre pay gratuities. I said no. Hopefully it doesn't bite me in the butt later.
  13. You can also download the Fan app (free on I phones) and turn it on when you go into the bathroom, you can leave it on the sink unless you use your phone in the bathroom :)
