Riding a Wave: Norwegian Epic's Hull Art

One of the most distinctive characteristics about Norwegian Cruise Line ships is the unique hull artwork that each vessel proudly displays and we are happy to share a peek at the contemporary hull design which will adorn Norwegian Epic, NCL's largest and most innovative Freestyle Cruising ship to date that is scheduled for delivery in May 2010. Painted on both sides with free form rolling waves of varying sizes that run through a modern color spectrum of lime, aqua, red, and purple and dotted by silver circles, the hull artwork was designed by the company’s internal marketing team.

A departure from the rest of the line’s signature hull artwork, which typically is inspired by the ship’s name or the destination the ship sails from, the hull artwork on Norwegian Epic instead takes on the characteristics of the ship’s interior features—a sophisticated, modern and sleek design and color palette that is seen in everything from the innovative curved design of the New Wave staterooms to the more contemporary design of the ship’s public areas.

“A Norwegian Cruise Line ship is instantly recognizable with its distinctive hull art that conveys each ship’s personality and the freedom and flexibility that is found on board,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. “With Norwegian Epic, we are taking Freestyle Cruising to the next level, so it is fitting that her hull artwork conveys more of the modern, sleek design guests will find once they are on board the ship.”

In addition to unveiling the hull art, NCL will begin taking reservations for Norwegian Epic’s 2010/2011 inaugural season on Thurs, May 21, 2009, with a special preview day for Norwegian’s past guests (Latitudes members) on Wed, May 20, 2009.
