At first glance, the exterior of the Norwegian Epic looks top heavy and square - much like a floating hotel resort. It's the large villas complex forward on decks 16-18 that give it this boxy look. However, once on the outdoor decks or inside the cruise ship, the Norwegian Epic has fun, whimsical, and elegant features. All in all, the ship is a great addition to the NCL fleet and will provide memorable cruise experiences with outstanding entertainment for those who cruise on her.
The outdoor decks on the Norwegian Epic are the scene of lots of exciting activities, especially with the Aqua Park, three water slides, 33-foot rock climbing wall, rappelling wall, bungee trampoline, 24-foot Spider Web climbing cage, ice skating rink, and sports courts. In addition, the Spice H2O Bar & Grill area has a large video screen that can be used both day and night.
