Norwegian Epic Is A One Off

Date Posted: 29 Jun 2010
Category:

The Norwegian Epic is yet to be officially named, with the ceremony due to take place in New York on the 2nd July, and Norwegian Cruise Lines have announced the ship will be a one of a kind.

In modern cruising this really is a one off with cruise lines rolling out identikit sister ships. These days cruise lines generally roll out at least two or three identical ships in each class, for example P&O with the Azura and Ventura or Royal Caribbean with Oasis of the Seas and Allure of the Seas.. This really does add to the unique charm of the 4,100 capacity Epic.

The 153,000 tonne ship is around 60% larger than NCL's Jewel class ships that sleep around 2,300 passengers. Originally the Epic was planned as one of two ships with an option to build a third ship, but back in 2008 NCL cancelled the order with the STX Europe ship-yard, just as the economic climate fell into free-fall.

Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Lines' CEO, announced; "We will continue to evaluate our business and build when the time is right. Any new ship will not be exactly like this, but will allow us to take on the next generation of Freestyle Cruising."

What our customers say


"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
