First cruise out of port canaveral for epic=crazy!

Recommended Posts

Ship to set sail at 4 and after a 2 1/2+ hour wait in lines that wrapped around the building and parking lot we made it on AFTER 4pm. Yikes! But we made it and it is beyond CROWDED! This should make for an interesting cruise and review 😳

Yup, were haven and were told repeatedly to stay in line. As we got near the door, lady walks out "who's in a suite"??

 

 

We asked her where she was 2 hours ago.

Watched the sail away on the port's webcam and was wondering why it left so late. Have a fun cruise. I'm sailing on her in 3 weeks!

What time did you get to the port? I'm in the Haven on the 12/10 sailing and was planning on getting there 11ish.

Sorry your cruise got off to a rough start :(. I think I remember epic having a rough start the first few cruises state side last year too :(. I'm sure you are going to have a great trip because you always have a great attitude. All the best!!

Epic just arrived back to the US this morning after being away for almost 18 months. Provisioning, USPH and Coast Guard inspections all probably delayed boarding. When I disembarked at 830 am things were moving swiftly as we had all cleared immigration in San Juan a few days ago (total nightmare due to number of non US citizens, but that's a separate issue).

 

The first cruise after a Transatlantic will almost always have embarkation delays.

 

PS - be patient with the crew the next few days, they were EXHAUSTED due to the number of sea days and how busy the bars and dining venues were on the crossing....... The crew are really friendly on the Epic in general but we put them through their paces :eek:

Just got off her yesterday as well. Please take good care of her for us (I know you will). She is a wonderful ship.

 

Crew worked very hard as we had a 13 day transatlantic cruise with only 2 port days.

 

Have a great cruise and can't wait to read your review and welcome back to NCL.
