When Norwegian Cruise Line Cruises launched their brand new ship, the Norwegian Epic, back in 2010, she took the cruising world by storm with her sleek design, award winning entertainment and innovative features –this ship truly is a world apart from all of her competitors.
Weighing in at an impressive 156,000 tonnes and carrying 4,200 passengers, this is one ship NCL can certainly be proud of. She offers 19 decks full of family friendly activities, world-class entertainment, exceptional freestyle dining venues and state-of-the-art staterooms.
Don’t worry about reserving your dinner table aboard the Epic, she has an incredible 21 dining options to choose from. And with NCL’s freestyle cruising option, you are free to dine whatever time you like! You can choose from the Japanese-style Teppanyaki grill, Cagney’s Steakhouse, the Chinese restaurant Shanghai, upmarket French restaurant named Le Bistro, or the Italian La Cucina. And this is just a small slice of what you can expect on board this amazing ship.
Searching for a cruise ship that caters for the entire family can be tricky, but with the Epic on hand to offer endless activities, you certainly won’t have to worry. The only problem that may arise is how on earth do you fit it all in? For those who have an adventurous streak she offers ‘Spider Web’ which is their innovative new climbing cage and a climbing wall. The Aqua Park has swimming pools for both the kids and grownups alike and even features a host of waterslides which slide from deck to deck. The fitness centre is ideal for working off all those extra calories you’ve indulged in at dinner and if you prefer to unwind and relax then you can do just that in her sumptuous spa, with an array of soothing spa treatments to choose from, you could spend hours in here alone. The kids will simply love their kid’s zone which features Wii and PlayStation games, a climbing maze, a ball pit and a dance floor and during the evenings the teens can hang out in their very exclusive teen nightclub.
Raising the Bar
There are countless bars and lounges on board the Epic with undoubtedly the most impressive being the Svedka Ice Bar - a bar that is entirely created from ice! From the furniture to the artwork, there really is nothing quite like it. Epic offers a number of other bars too including; a whiskey bar, martini bar, a cigar lounge, or if you prefer to dance the night away to a range of modern and classic songs - the Epic has several nightclubs to choose from.
Whether you are a solo cruiser or travelling with a huge family, there is a room perfect for everyone. You can even choose to stay in your very own private villa complete with a butler service! There are also the innovative New Wave Standard rooms which are anything but standard. With modern curved walls, sleek dark wooden designs and every amenity that you could ever need, it would seem that NCL have created an epic cruise - in every sense!
