Norwegian Epic

State-of-the-art cruise ships with the focus on entertainment

Norwegian Cruise Line's 153,000-ton, 4,200-passenger Norwegian Epic, was the largest and most innovative Freestyle Cruising ship in the Norwegian fleet when she arrived in 2009.

The strikingly contemporary, balcony-rich, 19-deck ship arrived on June 20, with world-class entertainment as her hallmark.

Norwegian Epic introduced the Blue Man Group on the High Seas for the very first time to perform their exhilarating fusion of comedy, theatrics and paint.

In the first “big top” at sea, Cirque Dreams and Dinner, created and directed by Neil Goldberg, offers an interactive theatrical dining experience with music, mayhem and acrobatic imagination.

When it comes to accommodation, Norwegian Epic offers a range of innovative accommodation options to suit every taste and budget.
