    Last Minute Advice for Epic

    Thank you so much for all the info!
  4. We will be sailing on the Epic in March and had a few general NCL as well as Epic specific questions: 1. What kinds of things, other than specialty dining, require reservations? Especially any kind of reservations I should book as soon as boarding. I read on another thread about signing up for tender at GSC as soon as we board? 2. What kid friendly shows and activities are on board? How is bowling? Is there an escape room activity, any info on that? 3. We have the promo for Ultimate Drink Package, what does that include? Does it include soda, since sodas are used for mixers? What specific bourbons and scotch are included? Frozen drinks? 4. We also have a 100 minute internet package included...how does that work? Does the 100 minutes start as soon as I connect and keep going, or just the actual time I am online? Should I be turning off wifi when not using it so my minutes don't get used up? 5. Water and soda are no longer allowed to be checked or carried on? So no more cases of water/soda allowed? Anyone know why? We sailed NCL years ago and it was allowed, and we sailed Carnival last year and it was allowed, is this a new NCL policy?

    Last Minute Advice for Epic

    Thanks so much for all the great info! We sail end of March and super excited. A few of quick questions: Are any of the shows kid friendly? Is the Pricilla show adult only? Did you do bowling(sorry if you mentioned it, I may have missed it) Did I read correctly that you have to sign up for a tender to GSC? We sailed on NCL about 10 years ago and don't recall having to sign up. Thanks again!

    Epic Interrupted

    We cruise on the Epic end of March, I'm sure it will be fixed by then, but I thought I read somewhere that the Epic has had issues before...should I be concerned?

    First timer

    Thank you all for the info! Really starting to look forward to this now! I've never been snorkeling, I can't swim, but after these comments, I just may try it! Can I book a snorkeling excursion at the beach or do I need to do it with the cruise line?

    First visit

    My husband and I will be travelling with my mom and our two kids (aged 6 and 9). This will be our first visit to Tortola and from what I understand the beaches are the main attraction. What would be a good beach for families that would also have maybe some local restaurants or even shops nearby? Kids would enjoy the beach, my mom would like to see any shopping. Are there tours that are recommended or anything particular on the island that is worth seeing? Would appreciate any info, thanks so much!

    First timer

    This will be our first time in St. Thomas. 3 adults and 2 kids (6 and 9). I know absolutely nothing about this island, want info on what to do/see. Are the beaches the main attraction? Any sightseeing tours worth doing? Any and all info is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    beach towels and wine

    So if I open a bottle of wine in my room and carry the glass to dinner, that's allowed? Don't want to have to pay a corkage fee more expensive than my wine bottle!

    weather and mosquitos

    We will be in Cozumel on April 5th, just wondered what the weather has been like so far and if rain is possible. Also, should I pack insect repellent?

    Awesome! Thank you so much! Didn't want to bring white wine unless I could chill it!
