The most popular cruise ship among the Norwegian Cruise Line company’s fleet is The Norwegian Epic. In 2019 Norwegian Epic won the awards in the “Best for Entertainment” and the “Best for Families” nominations of the famous Cruise Critic website ranking among large vessels, based on passenger feedback.

In the summer, Norwegian Epic is based in the Mediterranean Sea, cruising from various ports, mainly from Barcelona. In winter, the liner moves to the Caribbean.

Norwegian Epic is not just a cruise liner

it is a unique liner filled with all kinds of innovative equipment and entertainment. The design of the cabins on the liner is absolutely unique, the curved lines of the walls, amazing lighting and the latest technology. 

For those who travel alone the newly introduced type of studio cabins is a great to-go option. There are villa suites with an area of up to 500 square meters. This is a perfect choice for passengers who travel with their families. Each villa includes a jacuzzi and an open outdoor relaxation space. And for those who love privacy and luxury, there is a special zone called “The Haven”. These are the best suites Norwegian Epic has to offer. The truly remarkable VIP type rooms include a private pool, a bar and a relaxation area. You will also get a private concierge and a butler.

There are always plenty of food and drink choices with 17 restaurants and 18 bars onboard. The three main restaurants are already included in the price, but if you want to diversify your evenings, then for a small fee for booking a table, you can dine in Italian, French, Japanese, American or Chinese restaurant. Needless to say, the restaurants are open 24/7. 

Norwegian Epic offers an extensive entertainment program for any taste. Unique shows, musicals and circus performances await passengers at the Epic Theatre. The Piano Bar offers the vintage rhythms of the 70s. The best artists of the comedy genre can be found at the Headliners Comedy Club. The Jazz lovers should definitely visit the Fat Cats Jazz & Blues Club. Of course, there are many other themed places where you can dance or enjoy delicious cocktails, such as the Skyy Ice Bar and Spice H2O Club if you are into Latin American music.

One of the one-of-a-kind places onboard is the Svedka Ice Bar. As its name would suggest, it is a bar made of ice. But be sure to wear something warm, as the temperature inside the place never rises above -8 °C.

Norwegian Epic has one of the largest water parks, a climbing wall, theme-based open-air parties, discos and much more. And most importantly, this ship is specially designed for the concept of “Freestyle Cruising”, which means complete freedom of choice. All restaurants, bars and entertainment options are always available for you and it is possible to choose what to visit and when.
