If you're seeking an exciting cruise that allows you to enjoy your trip without worry, booking a package on one of the Norwegian Line cruise ships eliminates planning the details and allows you to enjoy a stress-free vacation. Among the major cruising lines, the Norwegian ships are relatively new to the group, but in keeping with established industry standards, they provide everything travelers have come to expect when vacationing on the seas, from luxury accommodations and gourmet dining to relaxing spas and onboard entertainment.
When it comes to the Norwegian Epic, an important aspect is its attitude toward guests being free to do whatever they want, however they want, and whenever they want without set schedules, dress codes, and timetables. The flexibility of a Norwegian Epic cruise ship vacation provides guests the opportunity to personally tailor their on vacations through the Freestyle Cruising program, an unusual feature of cruise vacations.
Guests have their choice in dining venues and with no set schedules, they can dine whatever time is most convenient and with whomever they choose. And though there are a few restrictions, passengers can generally choose whether to dress in casual attire or dress to the nines, as there is no formal dress code aboard the Norwegian Epic. The luxury of choosing attire and dining schedules is one of the excellent features of Norwegian Line cruise ships and is one that guests are sure to love.
A new feature of the line, which is so far found only on the Norwegian Epic cruise ship, is the imaginative Ice Bar, where the drinks are cool and the atmosphere is far from chilly. The Epic has one of only fourteen at-sea ice bars in the world. However, nightlife aboard the ship is lively no matter which venue you choose to visit. From the Bliss Ultra Lounge and Epic Club to Posh and a little Spice H2O, each club is a unique hot spot of music, dancing, and entertainment.
Even the accommodations on the Norwegian Epic allow for freedom of choice; whether you prefer one of the new trendy studio layouts or a private villa, the choice is yours when booking your vacation destination package. The numerous options for staterooms ensure that groups of any size and any age are able to find the perfect accommodations for their cruise.
Families will particularly like Freestyle Cruising because of the number of family-friendly things to do onboard and completely flexible schedules. Spend the day on the waterslides at the Aqua Park, go rock-climbing, spend time bowling at one of the sports complex's lanes, or play tennis on the two-story Wii screen. Kids traveling on the Norwegian Epic have a supervised area just for them at the Recess, and teens have their own hang-out at the Entourage.
Dining options are numerous onboard the Norwegian Epic Cruise Ship. There are twenty restaurants to choose from, which offer French, Chinese, Argentine, and Italian cuisine, along with a classic steakhouse restaurant. Once dinner is through, you might end the evening at the casino, where first-timers and pros have a choice in what to play and rewards to win through the Players Club Program, which is available whether you are trying your luck in a hand of poker, roulette, craps, blackjack, or slots.
The Norwegian Epic boasts multiple itinerary options as well, including the Western Caribbean itinerary that goes from Miami to Costa Maya, Roatan, and Cozumel, and the Eastern Caribbean itinerary, which runs from Miami to St Maarten, St Thomas, and Nassau before returning to South Florida. No matter which itinerary you choose, however, a cruise aboard the Norwegian Epic is sure to live up to its name.
