          All this makes me shudder. Ugly ship, boring entertainment - especially or the kids, banned in front of computer games - , bad music of terrible painted people.
          Is it possible to give a thread a negative ranking? Not because of the quality of information. Just because of the ship!

            NORWEGIAN EPIC BOOKINGS BREAK RECORDS WITH BIGGEST NEW SHIP RESERVATIONS IN COMPANY’S HISTORY

            Latitudes Promotion Offers Past Guests Stateroom Upgrades, Cruise Discounts and On-board Credits

            MIAMI – June 1, 2009
            – Norwegian Cruise Line saw demand for its largest ever Freestyle Cruising vessel Norwegian Epic skyrocket in the first week that the ship’s itineraries went on sale to the public, beginning Thursday, May 21, 2009. Norwegian Epic’s first week of bookings far exceeded opening week sales for the company’s last two new ships: Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Gem. All categories of staterooms were in demand, from the groundbreaking new Studios for the value-conscious traveler to the ultra luxurious villas, penthouses and deluxe owner’s suites. Prices start from $699 per person; however, based on high demand, prices increases are taking effect on some of the more popular sailings.

            “We are thrilled to see the keen interest in Norwegian Epic this early on. It’s a testament to the wide range of accommodations and innovative new features that will take Freestyle Cruising to the next level,” said Andy Stuart, Norwegian’s executive vice president, global sales and passenger services. “We want our guests and travel partners to know that we appreciate their excitement and support in helping to make Norwegian Epic’s launch the most successful ever. We encourage those who want to experience this extremely innovative ship to book a cruise on Norwegian Epic during her inaugural season.”

            Members of Norwegian’s past guest program, Latitudes, can take advantage of a special Norwegian Epic promotional offer from now through August 31, 2009, that includes up to a three category stateroom upgrade; additional discounts on the cruise fare of up to $100 per stateroom; and up to $500 in on-board credit for suites and villas*.

            Norwegian Epic is scheduled to enter service in late May 2010, and will take part in inaugural events before beginning her Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings from her year-round homeport in Miami. The first Eastern Caribbean sailing from Miami is scheduled for July 17, 2010 and the ship’s alternating Eastern and Western Caribbean itineraries are available through April 2011.

            Norwegian Epic’s Eastern Caribbean itinerary includes calls in Philipsburg, St. Maarten; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands and Nassau, Bahamas. The ship’s Western Caribbean itinerary includes calls in Costa Maya, Mexico; Roatán, Bay Islands, Honduras; and Cozumel, Mexico. Guests can make a reservation by contacting their travel professional or Norwegian Cruise Line at 866.... More information about the ship, her itineraries and offerings can be found at epic.ncl.com.

            Norwegian Epic’s Innovations & Features
            Norwegian Epic is changing the face of cruise line entertainment. In another industry first, Blue Man Group will perform in the ship’s 685-seat Epic Theater. Blue Man Group is best known for their wildly popular theatrical shows and concerts which combine music, comedy and multimedia theatrics to produce a totally unique form of entertainment. The blissful party atmosphere created at their live events has become the trademark of a Blue Man Group experience and beginning in the summer of 2010 will be seen for the first time ever at sea only on Norwegian Epic.

            Norwegian Epic will have multiple, specially-designed entertainment venues throughout the ship so that guests can choose from a wide variety of entertainment each evening of their cruise. No longer will entertainment be focused on two nightly shows in one large main theater. Norwegian Epic will offer a number of entertainment options in specially-designed venues, some offered for the first time ever at sea, with choices to appeal to a broad audience.

            On this ship, guests will find the only “big top” at sea. In this intimate 265-seat theater-in-the-round, famed producer/director Neil Goldberg will present Cirque Dreams® and Dinner. This one of a kind interactive theatrical dining experience will be performed in the air, while juggling dinner courses, with music, mayhem and acrobatic imagination. During this two-hour show, guests will marvel in amazement and become part of a celebration of spectacle and fantasy. The entire experience will be unlike anything else at sea.

            Norwegian Epic will offer the next generation of Freestyle Dining with 14 restaurant choices – the most at sea – and 18 bars and lounges. The ship also boasts unique nightlife options with the first Ice Bar at sea and Spice H20 with non-stop entertainment day and night; an expansive Aqua Park with the only tube slide and largest bowl slide at sea -- The Epic Plunge; seven decks of Freestyle Family Fun with highlights including a 33-foot high, 64-foot wide extreme rock climbing wall and the first ever rappelling wall at sea; the most bowling lanes at sea with six in two venues; a mixed-use sports deck with the ability for guests to engage in eight different athletic activities; as well as three separate kids’ and teen activity areas and the first squash court at sea.

            The 4,200-passenger Norwegian Epic incorporates several new types of accommodations – the curved New Wave staterooms; the largest ship-within-a-ship suite complex at sea, comprising 60 suites and villas on two private decks at the top of the ship; a new category of inside staterooms for the value-conscious traveler – The Studios and Living Room; and spa and family-friendly accommodations.

            *On-board credit and savings offers are based on cruise length and exclude suites. The on-board credit amount for suite bookings is per stateroom and will be applied to the first and second guests in the stateroom.

                Warning - Negative response ahead.

                It's got to be one of the ugliest ships ever built - and by today's standards that is really saying something. The paint job is ridiculous, she is way too tall, and if you think those added decks made the 'Norway' look silly, well, you can safely say NCL have excelled themselves this time, that giant greenhouse sitting on top of the bridge makes 'Norways' added decks look positively beautiful! And i wonder how long it will be before NCL realise that if they did away with the stupid paint scheme, they could probably save enough room in the bosun's store to build another couple of cabins! After all, she is obviously built to squeeze as many people as possible into a certain amount of space. I mean, come on, they have not even left room for the life boats, they have just been tacked onto the outside like some sort of after thought! Now let's see, ten per side, there you go, they managed to squeeze in another 20 cabins in by dangling the life boats overboard. Lets hope she never gets side-swiped by anything bigger than a row boat - 'oh great, there go the life boats'.
                Now what about some positives?, umm, erm......................... oh yes, the waterslide looks like fun.

                Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

                        In this status they can tug it directly to Alang, and a lot of time and money could be saved. Would be also better for the environment, and especially for our eyes!!!

                          I ABSOULUTLY 100 % agree with you, Steve. Those ship-designers must have used some kind of drugs

                          Is it totally IMPOSSIBLE to design eh......"pretty" ships nowadays. This is way to UGLY

                          It is NORWEGIAN EPIC. But sertenly not Norwegian Ethic or Norwegian Esthetic.

                          I am a bit ashamed to be a Norwegian when I see this pictures. But at the same time a bit proud. Because we, and the whole shippingworld are paying so much attention to a ship named NORWEGIAN EPIC.
                          This ship make me a bit scizofren. I will not look at it, because she is so UGLY. But the design and looks makes me THAT curious. So I look at ALL pictures

                          I hope I will NOT see such an ugly "thing" along our beautiful coast. But if that happens, I certenly will shoot HUNDREDS of pictures.

                          I am very worried about the development of ship-size. Will it all end up with a big disaster. (We all remember Titanic)??????
                          But at the same time, I would SOOOOO much like to be a passenger on board.

                          Maybe all my thoughts is just what the designers and the company want us to think......?????????

                          But it still looks UGLY to me.

                            she looks like she'll capsize on her sea trails...they should have named her Norwegian Skyscraper....she could have replaced one of the Twin Towers if she was land-based in New York

                              No, it's more "Las Vegas" ethic and esthetic.

                              Just because it has the word "Norwegian" in the name doesn't make it Norwegian.....the CEO's name is Kevin Sheehan....(not the most Norsk-sounding name....)

                              I found out how the hull artwork was designed:

                              Norwegian Epic's hull artwork, designed by the company's internal marketing team,is painted on both sides with free form rolling waves of varying sizes that run through a modern color spectrum of lime, aqua, red, and purple and are dotted by silver circles.

                              I have only one comment on "modern"--remember the 70's....



                              Someone should remember---when you try to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one.....

                                At first I did not believe the drawings of what the ship would look like. I thought it was a trick to throw the public off as to her true design. Now that I see it all come to gether in steel I am shocked. The big steel box above the bridge is real! What are they thinking? Oh, I forgot they are thinking money.
