Norwegian Epic, Norwegian's largest and most innovative Freestyle cruise ship (pictured above during sea trials), will feature several environmentally-friendly features particularly in its heating and cooling, lighting, garbage handling, sewage and glazing systems. In an effort to further support the environment and the regions in which the ship will sail, Norwegian is saluting the Office Snook Water Pollution Program/Youth Environmental Programs Inc.'s sea turtle release event and donating $5 for every deposited booking made on April 22 for any of Norwegian Epic’s scheduled sailings through April 7, 2012.
"We support the environment by incorporating the most environmentally-friendly equipment on board and utilizing 'green' practices wherever possible," said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer. "We also try to instill positive environmental habits amongst our young cruisers and Officer Snook has been a great partner that has helped us educate millions of kids. It's our honor to support them and the waters and sea life where Norwegian Epic will sail."
Guests who have not yet booked a trip on Norwegian Epic can now do so and support a worthy cause. Simply call 866-234-7350, visit Epic.NCL.com, or contact a travel professional on April 22, book your cruise (with deposit), and Norwegian will donate $5 per reservation to sea turtle release and water pollution educational programs.
