Discover Freestyle Cruising on a truly grand scale on board Norwegian Cruise Line's incredible Norwegian Epic
- Ship in Detail
- Deck Plans
Norwegian Epic has an attitude that’s way more than the sum of its parts. Not surprising then that it turned out to be the template for subsequent Norwegian Cruise Line ships. On board this 4,200-passenger ship which was launched in 2010, there’s an unrivalled choice of activities for youthful adults and kids alike, including breathtaking water slides in the Aqua Park and ‘Splash Academy’. There’s a large sports complex, rock-climbing, cutting-edge entertainment, and no fewer than 20 food venues offering a cornucopia of choices.
Accommodation is similarly mould-breaking. There are 13 accommodation grades with a host of price levels ranging from Studios for solo travellers (with private access to the Studio Lounge), Inside Staterooms; Balcony Staterooms (with a ‘New Wave’ concept of curved walls); Mini-Suites; Courtyard Suites; Spa Suites; and the ultimate indulgence of Loft Suites in the Haven, with its own Concierge Lounge and private Epic Club and Courtyard Grill.
The two Broadway-standard shows include ‘Ballroom Blitz’ and ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert - The Musical’. The ship also features a pop music entertainment experience with the Cavern Club bringing the legendary Liverpool venue where the Beatles performed to life. There’s also ‘Cirque Dreams and Dinner’ theatrical dining experience with Broadway acrobatics and a touch of whimsy. The choice of bars is equally impressive with the authentic SVEDKA Ice Bar which is kept at 17 degrees Fahrenheit, while sun-worshippers can hang-out at the Spice H2O adults-only Beach Club. Night-owls love the decadent ambiance in Bliss Ultra Lounge or let loose at Howl at the Moon, where duelling pianos beat out rock and roll.
The variety of restaurants serves cuisines from around the world. Among the complimentary choices is the Manhattan Room, a main dining room reminiscent of an Art Deco supper club with a live band and celebrity impersonators. Speciality options include: Cagney’s Steakhouse; Moderno Churrascaria, offering Argentinean skewered meats; and Tuscan style La Cucina. French gourmet cuisine is on offer in Le Bistro; there’s always a buzz in O’Sheehan’s Sports Bar and Grill; while there’s a cornucopia of Asian-themed venues including Shanghai’s, Wasabi and Teppanyaki Grill.
We highly recommend the vast Mandara Spa which offers more than 50 speciality treatments. Here you can immerse yourself in the hot and cold experiences in the Thermal Suite, embrace the revitalising benefits of the Salt Room (filled with body-cleansing crystals), or simply take a dip in the Vitality Pool.
