Overview

Last updated in 2015 (after originally launching in 2010), the 4,100-passenger Norwegian Epic carries 1,724 crew members and boasts nonstop activities for cruisers to choose from.

Passengers can enjoy a water park, a bowling alley, a sports complex and a spa by day and take advantage of an ice bar, a comedy club and live theatrical performances in the evenings. Younger cruisers can also play in kids and teens clubs.

Cruisers can wind down at one of 16 eateries found on board, including seven specialty restaurants that serve everything from French fare to sushi (specialty eateries require an extra fee).

The ship also offers a variety of lodging options. While solo cruisers can opt for a Studio cabin with exclusive access to the Living Room lounge, groups can choose between Inside, Balcony, Spa and Suite category cabins. For even more luxury, a suite in The Haven offers additional space and access to a courtyard, concierge lounge and private restaurant and bar.

In 2018-19, Norwegian Epic will depart from Barcelona and Rome for sailings in Europe, and from Orlando and Puerto Rico for sailings in the Caribbean
