One of the most impressive ships on the ocean today, the Norwegian Epic takes its fleet’s hallmark Freestyle Cruising philosophy to new heights and offers Royal Holiday Cruises guests some of the most innovative features available. First sailing in 2010, the ship introduced a number of game-changing features that earned it several industry awards, including Travel Weekly’s “Best Cruise Ship” two years in a row. All these advances in accommodations, entertainment, and dining ensure that Royal Holiday Cruises members will enjoy a truly unforgettable ocean vacation aboard the Norwegian Epic.
Aboard the Norwegian Epic, guests have access to over 20 excellent dining establishments, which means that even the most discerning Royal Holiday Cruises guests will find something to delight the palate. Seven complimentary eateries provide a huge array of both dining-room and buffet-style meals. In addition, there is a variety of restaurants offering exquisite specialty fare, including the succulent steaks at Cagney’s, the elegant French cuisine at Le Bistro, the fresh sushi at Wasabi, and much more. At O’Sheehan’s, guests can enjoy some pub grub and a few beers while knocking down a few pins in the bowling alley. The shipboard pizzeria, Pizza 24/7, even offers the first pizza delivery service on the high seas.
Some of the most forward-thinking innovations on board the Norwegian Epic involve entertainment. The popular Blue Man Group regularly stages its unique brand of performance, as does the long-lived tribute show, Legends in Concert, featuring the best-of-the-best celebrity impersonators. For a truly extraordinary experience, the Cirque de Dreams & Dinner will have Royal Holiday Cruises guests marveling at spectacular feats of aerobatics while they feast on fantastic cuisine. The ship also boasts other attractions, including sizzling nightclubs, the mellow riffs of The Blues Band, comedy acts by Second City, and on and on. In addition, shows in the Epic Theater, games in the Epic Casino, and dancing in the Bliss Ultra Lounge and Spice H2O will keep passengers fueled with fun all night long.
By day, of course, there’s plenty to do, as well. The young at heart will delight in swooshing down one of the water slides atop the Norwegian Epic. Royal Holiday Cruises sport enthusiasts will gravitate to the Sports Complex for its ball courts, batting cage, rock climbing, and even the first-ever rappelling wall at sea. The Pulse Fitness Center provides a fully equipped gym to those who want to keep in shape while on vacation, while the Mandara Spa offers a range of health and beauty treatments to those who prefer ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation in the tranquil surroundings of a premium spa.
Still need something to do? At i-Connect Internet Cafe, Royal Holiday Cruises guests can keep in touch with loved ones back home. The Marketplace is the perfect place to pick up a souvenir or gift, while the art gallery is a fine spot to meditate on the beautiful works in the shipboard collection.
The Norwegian Epic was the first cruise ship to offer an entirely new and innovative range of accommodations, which provide a perfect stateroom for any Royal Holiday Cruises guest. With cozy interiors and spacious balcony suite offerings, there is something suitable for any party on any budget. Even solo travelers are accommodated in stylish Studio cabins with access to the private The Living Room. Luxurious Spa staterooms add in premium amenities and priority access to the Mandara Spa. The high-end Haven staterooms offer whirlpool tubs, access to the exclusive Haven restaurant and bar, and concierge and butler service.
The Norwegian Epic truly lives up to its name. It brings the most innovative amenities to Royal Holiday Cruises passengers, thereby giving them the most memorable and relaxing ocean vacation imaginable.
