Norwegian Cruise Line offers sneak peek at next ship, Norwegian Epic – USATODAY.com

 

 

The buzz in the Cruise World in recent months has been all about Norwegian Cruise Line’s soon-to-debut Norwegian Epic — one of the biggest ships ever built. What will it be like? After months of trickling out details, the line is offering a full-blown video sneak peek of the vessel today on YouTube.

As the video makes clear, the 153,000-ton, 4,200-passenger behemoth, scheduled to set sail for the first time with paying passengers in just a few weeks, is as glitzy as it is large (and well on its way to being finished).

Norwegian is promising to take cruise ship entertainment to a new level with Epic, which will feature performances by such well-known icons of Las Vegas as the Blue Man Group and Legends in Concert, and (fraction-of-a-second) glimpses of some of the venues are on the video.

The ship also will be home to an unusual circus-and-dinner show called Cirque Dreams located in what’s billed as the first big top at sea.

Bigger than all but a handful of Royal Caribbean ships, Epic will be more than 60% larger than the largest NCL ship currently at sea and dwarf the biggest vessels operated by such big-ship lines as Carnival, Princess and Celebrity
