Epic Stateroom

On June 17th, Norwegian Cruise Line  accepted delivery of its largest and most innovative ship, the Norwegian Epic. At 153,000 gross tons, Epic is the largest ship ever constructed in St. Nazaire and therefore represents a major milestone. “Norwegian Epic represents the next level of Freestyle Cruising with branded entertainment, more than 20 dining options and a wide range of accommodations including the largest suite complex at sea,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian’s CEO. “Following more than four years of development and construction, we are pleased to take ownership of this beautiful ship and introduce her to the world. We are confident that Norwegian Epic will amaze our guests.”

On June 21, the ship will sail a one-night preview cruise to Southampton, arriving on June 22 for a two-day inaugural sailing. On June 24, the ship will depart Southampton on a sold-out seven-day transatlantic crossing to New York arriving on July 1.

Norwegian Epic will be christened by entertainer Reba McEntire on July 2 followed by a two-day inaugural cruise. The ship also will be the host venue for the 34th Annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks event taking place on Sunday, July 4. The event includes a national, one-hour, live entertainment broadcast on NBC-TV beginning at 9 p.m. ET. Norwegian Epic arrives in Miami on Wednesday, July 7 where a welcome event will be held at Bicentennial Park from 2 to 4 p.m. For more information on the event, visit http://epic.ncl.com/epicmiami. Inaugural festivities conclude with a two-day sailing on July 8.
