  1. I have done 2 b2b and have never had to leave the ship. They will issue you a sticker to wear that states that you are allowed to remain on the ship. If you are in the same stateroom for both cruises, you do not have to attend the second muster drill. As for eating, Taste and O'Sheehan's will be open. You may leave the ship if you desire.
  2. Still waiting for mine. Called NCL this morning and they gave me the amount they were returning to my card and said it had been sent 3/4. So far, nothing showing up on my card. I, too, am receiving more than I figured on, so it must be port fees and a couple of days of prepaid gratuities. Will keep you posted. UPDATE: Checked my credit card statement this morning 3/8, and the NCL charges had been removed. Extremely happy now!
  3. As a New Englander, I know my fish and chips! O'Sheehans doesn't even make the grade! Tastes like the frozen fish fillets you buy in the supermarket. Plus, the service is so slow, that most things come to the table luke warm. Who wants to eat cold greasy fish? No thanks!
  4. I, too, was on this cruise and found the crew to be very accommodating, and doing everything in their power to make the shortened cruise enjoyable. I love the Epic, having cruised on her 9 times, and have never had a bad experience. I do think the food is not their strong suit, but have always found something to eat. I truly enjoyed myself, despite the shortened trip. NCL was more than fair with their compensation. I enjoyed myself so much, I am doing a back-to-back-to-back in late March!
  5. Thank you for your generosity. Although I was not one of the lucky receipients, I think it is awesome!
  6. I tend t agree that by this time if there were still issues with the Epic and they were not sailing on 2/16, NCL would most definitely notified the passengers.
  7. I think NCL is being very fair and generous. I know people were disappointed that it wasn't the cruise they had planned on, but they were on the water for 7 days, went to Puerto Rico, ate and drank and partied. It was a cruise nonetheless. Kudos to NCL for doing the right thing.
  8. I just checked NCL website for Feb 16th-23 cruise. It is sold out, so I doubt if they will cancel it altogether.
  9. OMG! Thanks for the information! I am booked for 3 back to backs in March. Not looking good.....
  10. Sorry to hear about the disruption. I am scheduled but not until March. Please keep us posted when you can.
  11. I guess I am in the minority because I love the Epic. I have sailed on the Epic 6 times to include the Med and the transatlantic in Nov, 2018. I loved the size, loved the service. Yes, there are a few things that I found to be annoying, but not enough to ruin my vacation. I will be sailing again in March, 2019. I am doing a back to back to back, so looking forward to 3 glorious weeks on my favorite ship.
  12. I have sailed on the Epic for 7 times, including a TA in November. I have 2 more booked in the future. I absolutely love the ship, the service, the employees and activities. Are there flaws? Of course, but I am a firm believer that a vacation is what you make of it. There are those who will never care for this ship. But, there are people like myself, who sing the praises. That is what makes the world go around. I would not hesitate to recommend the ship. Love the Epic!
  13. I am on the Epic Trans Atlantic leaving from Barcelona on 11/4-11/17 and also have 9068 so that information came in handy. Thanks!
  14. thanks so much for your hard work in compiling the overlay deck plans, what a tremendous help. I have just booked the Epic transatlantic on 20th October from Barcelona and have x3 cabins next door to each other on Deck 9 - 9076/9068/9072, so it was a relief to find out (I hope :)) that these have covered balconies, albeit looking down onto Deck 8 balconies and lifeboats? If could could confirm, that would be great. We sailed the Epic last May and didn't even give it a thought about the balcony position, but this time I am responsible for a 'family booking' and don't think my Mum would be happy if she was overlooked. Once again, thanks for the information.
