|Norwegian Epic - Port of Miami|
|Smiling already - just after boarding|
It is very common for the cabin stewards to still be preparing the ship for occupancy if you board the ship around lunch time. Cabins are usually available around 2 PM, but that shouldn't stop you from starting to enjoy the ship.
Norwegian Cruise line boasts Freestyle Dining which provides you with several choices for lunch. Instead of having a buffet in the Garden Cafe, we opted for something different.
Embarkation of the Epic was on Deck 6 near the Epic Casino. There are no cabins located on this public deck. Instead you'll find several entertainment venues and dining spots on Deck 6.
O'Sheehan's Bar & Grill is located mid-ship. It was the first dining spot that we discovered after we dropped off our luggage. Checking out the menu, we decided to eat there. The hostess directed us to a counter across from the main dining area. She said that a server would be with us shortly.
The chicken pot pie sounded good to my husband, so that was what he ordered. He said that it was very good. It must have been freshly made because it was steaming hot.
My choice was fish 'n chips which is served with tartar sauce. I prefer malt vinegar with fish 'n chips, so I was happy that they had some available. It might not be as good as I've had in London, but it was an enjoyable lunch.
Shortly after we finished our lunch an announcement was made that the cabins were not available for occupancy. We were one of the first to claim our bags and head off to our cabin.
Our virtual tour of the Epic continues in our next post.
