Freestyle Cruises with Elegance and Class - and SpongeBob SquarePant
by Roy Witman © 2010
Welcome aboard Norwegian Cruise Line's newest ship, Epic, where a cruising adventure for the whole family awaits you. Youngsters will be thrilled to hang out with their favorite Nickelodeon characters, and moms and dads will appreciate the more sophisticated Cirque Dreams and Dinner, or an evening with the Blue Man Group. Everyone will love the flexibility of Norwegian's signature Freestyle Cruise, where anything goes, and there is no schedule to follow but your own.
Family Friendly Adventures
Water lovers should bring an extra suit, because there's plenty of wet and wild fun on board. Three multi-story waterslides offer just the boost of speed you're after, no matter how adventurous you're feeling. Choose a meandering cruise right through the rock-climbing wall, a twisting, turning, three-story plunge from the top of the ship, or a thrilling 200-foot slide guaranteed to get your heart racing. For those who prefer relaxing poolside to a whitewater run, Epic offers two main pools, five hot tubs, a wading pool, and one reserved just for the littlest guests.
Kids - and their parents - won't want to miss seeing SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer, and the rest of the crew from Nickelodeon at Sea. Norwegian Cruise Line paired up with everyone's favorite kid's network to make Epic a family entertainment extravaganza. Share breakfast with the characters, get slimed during a rollicking live show, or play interactive games by the pool during Nick Live Poolside. Indoors or out, from sunup to sundown, Nickelodeon at Sea will be a hit with the entire family.
When the sun goes down, Epic's aft pool magically transforms into the hottest nightclub at sea. The pool floor rises to become a rocking dance floor at the center of Spice H20, an adult-only club where disco balls have been replaced by the twinkling of a million stars. Watch as professionals show off the latest dance craze, or join in the fun with some moves of your own.
When it's time to cool off, you won't have to go far. The Svedka Ice Bar, modeled after the famous ice hotels of Scandinavia, is a chilly 17 degrees no matter the temperature outside. This frozen fantasyland is carved entirely from blocks of ice. The bar, the tables, the chairs, and the life-sized sculptures sparkle and shimmer, giving this one-of-a-kind nightclub a dream-like feel that can't be found anywhere else at sea.
Accommodations to Meet Everyone's Needs
Epic's staterooms have a sleek, contemporary feel that perfectly matches Norwegian's Freestyle philosophy. Studios make the solo traveler feel at home with enough space to stretch out, and private access to the Studios Lounge, just for those travelling alone. Family Balcony and Deluxe Balcony staterooms each sleep up to four, with plenty of room for everyone to kick back and get comfortable. Spa staterooms offer the finest in luxury cruising with in-room hot tubs, spacious balconies, and exclusive access to the private Villas Courtyard and Concierge Lounge.
Families, couples, and solo travelers will all find something to love about Norwegian Epic. World-class entertainment, spectacular thrill rides, and Norwegian's famous Freestyle Cruising spirit combine to make Epic the vacation of your dreams - no matter what that dream might be.
