Norwegian Epic Review
About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
Norwegian Epic offers weekly round-trip Western Mediterranean cruises departing from Barcelona in summer months and weeklong Eastern or Western Caribbean itineraries—depending on the date—from Miami during the winter season. Transatlantic crossings are available when the ship repositions seasonally.
NCL's newest and largest ship is all about the entertainment. While Norwegian Epic has a unique new cabin design and more than 20 places to dine, entertainment options include Blue Man Group, Howl at the Moon (a dueling-pianos show), the Second City comedy ensemble, Legends in Concert, and a theatrical dining experience with Cirque du Soleil–style performers. For the kids, there are Nickelodeon characters on board and a character breakfast. The only extra entertainment charges are for the Cirque dinner show and the character breakfast.
Also epic are the numerous bars and lounges. For the coolest drinks at sea, Norwegian Epic has an ice bar (for an extra charge). Expansive areas are reserved for children and teens and the aft pool is exclusively for adults during the day. The other pool area has three waterslides and a plethora of lounge chairs. For the best view of the sea, there is a rock-climbing wall.
