If you’re sailing the Mediterranean or the Caribbean, there’s no question that one of the finest choices you could possibly make is the spectacular Norwegian Epic. Delivered to Norwegian Cruise Line in 2010, the Norwegian Epic is truly a leader in this next generation of luxury cruise ships, changing the face of cruise ship entertainment while raising the standards one can come to expect from NCL's fleet of cruise ships. With a capacity of 4,100 passengers Norwegian Epic is a truly majestic sight rising out from the water, a floating town where you can lose yourself in relaxation and let go of the ordinary world for as long as you’re on the water. This is a cruise ship which is proud of the innovations it has made to the world of cruising, and we know that you’ll be just as amazed as other passengers and cruise critics have been.
One of the highlights of Norwegian Epic is the forward-thinking, modern design which has gone into its fun, luxurious cabins. Studio staterooms are available to the single traveller for the first time, while other cabins feature “New Wave” designs: curved walls, recessed features, roomy bathrooms, and plenty of soft curves in the sofas and beds. Gone are the days of “it’ll do” cruise cabins; on the Norwegian Epic, you might well be in a four star hotel with a view of the ever-changing sea. Beautiful decor throughout the ship will put you in a luxurious frame of mind, ready to let all your worries drift away on the waves.
Under the extensive Norwegian Edge project announced in 2015, Norwegian Epic recieved many enhancements including the addition of exciting new entertainment spot The Cavern Club, an authentic Italian makeover for La Cucina, upgraded family spaces and more.
As the pioneer of the Freestyle Dining ethos which has changed cruising forever, Norwegian Cruise Line has raised the stakes yet again with the offerings available onboard Norwegian Epic. Twenty different dining choices from casual to truly upscale, as well as covering a global listing of cuisines; seven of these delicious options are complimentary, ensuring that you’ll never want for choices.
Lacking in a traditional main dining room, the Epic instead offers up the exquisite Manhattan Room, with Art Deco furnishings and even a polished wooden dance floor. Each of the restaurants and eateries feature something wonderful and different: the eclectic gourmet food of Taste, the bowling alley and casual dining of O’Sheehan’s, or the fresh flowers and buffet-style food at the Garden Cafe.
Of course, those are only a few of the options, as the list goes on for miles: French cuisine, steakhouses and sushi, astonishingly good pizza served 24/7, and much, much more.
There are always so many shows to see onboard Norwegian Epic, the only hard part will be choosing which to check out. Each is spectacular and entertaining, from Vegas and Broadway to offbeat comedy, plus plenty of excellent and well-loved Nickelodeon shows for the kids.
The shows will fill up your night time schedule, but during the day you have to be sure to make time for the perfectly designed pool complex (considered one of the best anywhere), as well as all the other unique activities available: the unusual and exciting Svedka Ice Bar, a murder-mystery lunch, the Epic casino, gorgeous galleries, and so many other possibilities that you’ll never wonder what to do next.
