we are veteran cruisers on other lines and our last NCL was our first cruise over 20 years ago so it has totally changed since the last time we sailed with them. I have a couple of questions. We are looking at going on the Epic in April.
1. We are looking at booking a spa mini suite or possibly family mini suite since we will have our gd with us. Do we get any perks or benefits with a mini suite, like priority boarding?
2. How is the kids club? My gd will be 7 and loved the kids clubs on the other ships she has been on.

The spa access for adults is worth $500 and it is NCL’s best spa in the fleet.

We book minis for the larger shower or tub (vs small “transporter tube”).

The kids program is great. Your GD will fall in love with it.

We went in a mini suite as a free upgrade from a balcony. The bath was useful for when we needed to wash a few clothes I would not pay extra for it. Using the word "suite" is a bit rich as far as I am concerned.
