Norwegian Epic takes Freestyle Cruising to a whole new level. As its name implies, the Epic is the largest and most innovative Norwegian ship to date, providing passengers with an even wider range of onboard activities, amenities and stateroom options. Especially worthy of note are the ship's New Wave staterooms, which offer accommodations with contemporary curved architecture, open living spaces and creatively designed bathrooms. And, 100 percent of the Epic's outside staterooms feature balconies. For the budget-conscious traveler, Norwegian offers a new category of inside staterooms called The Studios, which maximize space and feature a window that looks out on the corridor, as well an exclusive set of cabins called The Haven.
The Epic offers unparalleled evening entertainment, including performances by The Blue Man Group and Legends in Concert. Those who want to indulge in the nightlife can check out the "ultimate chill" in the cruise industry's first ice bar, where the temperature never rises above 17 degrees Fahrenheit and guests are given coats and gloves to keep warm. Those who are more interested in heating up the dance floor can choose from several clubs, ranging from live entertainment and Latin dancing at Spice H20 to shadow dancers, mood-lit bowling and private gaming tables at Bliss and Ultra. The Epic is one of three Norwegian ships featuring a partnership with Nickelodeon that includes one-of-a-kind activities and events such as character breakfasts, interactive pool games and spontaneous messy games featuring pies, slime or even "jellyfish" with Team Nick during impromptu Splash Mobs. With a wide range of new features and amenities, the Norwegian Epic truly represents the next generation of Freestyle Cruising.
