Norwegian Epic completes sea trials

Date Posted: 15 Feb 2010

Cruise lovers can look forward to sampling Norwegian Cruise Lines' (NCL) largest vessel following news that the 4,200-passenger ship is set to be unveiled during the summer.

According to USA Today, Norwegian Epic completed its first sailing trials at sea last weekend and "passed with flying colours", paving the way for its launch later in the year.

President and chief operating officer Roberto Martinoli revealed to the website after the tests at the STX Europe shipyard in Saint-Nazaire, France, that the ship's performance was faultless.

"Everybody is smiling, and everybody is very happy, as the trials went very, very well," he told the news provider after the event.

"We did well at speed, [and] did very well in terms of sea-keeping, although the sea was very calm. Also the way the ship manoeuvres is incredible."

More than 60 per cent bigger than NCL's existing ships, the 153,000-tonne vessel will feature single occupancy cabins, which are not common in the sector.
