ch7012 Posted August 23, 2013 #1 Share Posted August 23, 2013 Let me start by saying I know everyone has different opinions and likes different things. That said, I am booked on the Epic first week of December and now having second thoughts. I am mid 40's and BF is 50...we usually do our own things, see some shows, casino, pool and may or may not get off the boat in port depending on how many times we have been there. I was thinking of changing from the Epic to the Jewel from New Orleans. We would be in a mini-suite on either ship. (Still more than 75 days out and cost will be pretty much the same) Have cruised out of Miami a number of times but never out of New Orleans (although have been there a few times for work). As far as ports go - Epic (St Maarten, St. Thomas and Nassau) - been there done that - and also am booked on the Getaway for next May with the same ports. (Would not be a deal breaker to stay on the boat - and maybe I'd enjoy the Epic more when most pax were on shore??) Jewel (Montego Bay, Grand Cayman and Cozumel) - haven't done Montego Bay yet. Have been to Grand Cayman and Cozumel a number of times. I guess I'm wondering if I'll be overwhelmed with the Epic. Will I find it too crowded compared to the Dawn/Jewel class ships? I have sailed NCL maybe 10 times - between the Gem, Dawn, Pearl and Jewel (Jewel was my first NCL cruise a few years ago)...and have also sailed 3x with RCL. I've searched CC posts for days but still undecided...hoping to get a few opinions from people who have been on both (or one) of the ships. Thoughts??
