Upgraded Norwegian Epic ready to sail

Norwegian Epic welcomed guests onboard this week following significant enhancements across the vessel, including entertainment, dining, technical operations and more. 

The new features come as Norwegian Epic readies for her winter and summer season sailing the Mediterranean from Barcelona, followed by her return to the United States and her new home in Port Canaveral in the fall of 2016.

Norwegian Epic now features a brand new entertainment outlet The Cavern Club, bringing the legendary Liverpool venue to life. Following the addition of Broadway sensation Burn The Floor earlier this year, the ship has also been outfitted for its second Broadway show, Priscilla Queen of the Desert - The Musical, based on the Oscar-winning movie.

Dining enhancements for Norwegian Epic include extensive renovations to the existing Moderno Churrascaria, Cagney’s, La Cucina, Le Bistro, Garden Café, Manhattan Room restaurant and Taste restaurant. Many of the onboard dining venues received a refreshed look with new carpeting, reupholstered furniture, new décor and more.

Norwegian Epic was also outfitted with a brand new photo gallery, library and card room and guests can also tee up at the new SplashGolf, which was installed in the ship’s Kids Aqua Park. Additionally, the vessel received major renovations and enhancements to the Mandara spa, Bliss Ultra Lounge, pool deck Marketplace, Epic Theater, Casino, and the exclusive Haven suite complex; including new lighting fixtures, artwork, wall covering, furniture and more.

Technical modernizations and maintenance also took place during the dry dock. The ship received a new pair of “Becker rudders” together with more efficient propeller caps, and state-of-the-art energy efficient hull paint. Additional significant technical and safety updates include lifeboats and tender boats release systems upgrade; thrusters and stabilizers full maintenance, air ducts upgrades as well as improved storerooms’ refrigeration systems.
