NORWEGIAN EPIC 

 

Norwegian Epic is a cruise ship of the Norwegian Cruise Line built under that line's F3 Project by STX Europe Chantiers de l'Atlantique shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France.  When built it was the third largest cruise ship in the world.

After completion and acceptance, the Epic sailed on Thursday 24 June 2010 from Southampton to New York, arriving at the latter port on 1 July and became the largest cruise ship to dock in New York Passenger Ship Terminal.

The Norwegian Epic surpasses the Breakaway-class as NCL's largest vessel by over 10,000 GT.  She represents the "third generation" of Freestyle cruising vessels and its size allows NCL to have a ship that is in the "mega-class" of their competitors at Royal Caribbean International and Carnival Cruise Lines, though still 32% smaller by gross tonnage than Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas, the world's largest and longest passenger vessels.  The ship has 4100 passenger berths, with all outside cabins having balconies. The Epic introduced 100 square foot interior studio cabins for solo passengers, including a shared "living room" for socializing.  The Epic has 60% more passenger space than NCL's then largest ships.

Norwegian Epic's Aqua Park' has the only tube and bowl water slide at sea. The ship also has a rappelling wall and two three-lane bowling alleys. It also has a 17 F (−8 C) Ice Bar where the drinks are served in ice glasses and patrons wear parkas.

On 13 April 2010 NCL CEO Kevin Sheehan along with Macy's, Inc CEO Terry J. Lundgren and NBC CEO Jeff Zucker announced that the Macy's 34th Annual 4 July Fireworks would take place on the Norwegian Epic. The NBC One-Hour Telecast of the Event was broadcast from the Norwegian Epic.

Thank you,
