Back in Jan when I started planning, you were all so helpful. I had hoped to go while it was still winter, but things happened - we didn't get to go then.

Now, I am so excited - I just booked the NCL Epic for March 30, two inside staterooms mid-ship, deck 10.
I am aware of the quirks. In our price range, nothing is perfect, but as someone frequently says on the forum, any day at sea is better than a day at home.

My final thinking.
Liked several Carnival cruises, except so many complaints about smoking, and with lung disease, I might have difficulty.

Liked Caribbean Princess out of Houston best, but longer, more expensive flights with layovers were a turn off to DD with the little one.

Were afraid DD would be bored and little one might get on old ones' nerves on HAL.

Even with quirks on Epic, and a bit huge for my taste, we thought DD and GD would enjoy all the water stuff and entertainment, especially Cirque at Sea in their specialty theater. Since this is our gift to them, we hope we've chosen well.

Thank you to all you answered my questions before and to everybody who posted comments on the Epic on another thread.
