Norwegian Epic Emerges

Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled the first images of its new 153,000-gross ton, 4,200-passenger Norwegian Epic, the company’s largest and most innovative Freestyle Cruising ship to date. Currently under construction at STX Europe in St. Nazaire, France, the contemporary, balcony-rich, 19-deck ship will be 1,068 feet long, 133 feet wide, with a draft of 28.5 feet when completed in May 2010.

Does her slightly top-heavy-appearing profile remind you of another "epic" NCL ship? Perhaps the legendary SS Norway, following the addition of upper decks in 1990?

While NCL hasn't announced any additional details—they plan to do that and unveil the signature hull artwork in the coming months—Cruise Diva is pleased to share the latest "reveals" of F3, now named Norwegian Epic ...

With Details About the F3 Ships, NCL throws us a curve. Catch the NEW WAVE in innovative ocean-going accommodations.

"slightly top heavy" is being generous.

Hopefully, she'll look more "balanced" in actual photos. Those are artists' renderings, so I cut her some slack :)

Some of the cruises involve innovative Freestyle Cruising. These cruises offer a fabulous night life with exciting dancing and music. It feels like being at a wedding reception and that’s we can see kids everywhere.
