The Norwegian EPIC arrives in Miami

So what's new in cruising today? The new NCL Epic arrived in her new Homeport of Miami, FL on Thursday and left on her maiden Caribbean Voyage on Saturday. This totally unique 153,000 gross tons, 4,100 passenger floating resort is the first new ship to homeport in Miami in several years. She is a World Class entertainment destination to be sure!
  • Blue Man Group will be a regular show and exclusive to the Epic.

  • With the only "big top" at sea, Cirque Dreams and Dinner presents a one of a kind interactive dining experience with music, mayhem, and acrobatic imagination.

  • Legends in Concert, the original and world's greatest live tribute show is featured for the first time at sea in over a decade along with The Second City improvisational comedy troupe.

  • Add to that Howl at the Moon, the greatest rock 'n roll dueling piano show that encourages audience participation and NY based Slam Allen Band playing down-home blues in the Fat Cats Jazz and Blues club.

  • Another cruise ship first is the SVEDKA Ice Bar which originated in Sweeden. 17 degrees and everything - bar, stools, and all is made of ice. Yes, they will supply a coat and hat. Small cover charge includes two signature drinks.

  • The Epic Plunge - an Aqua Park with the only tube slide and largest bowl slide at sea; extreme rock-climbing on a 33 ft high, 64 ft wide rock climbing wall with rapelling wall too; 6 lane bowling alley, sports deck with plenty of athletic activites possible.

  • For the kids, 3 spearate venues and Nickelodeon at Sea (TM) offering Nickelodeon themed family entertainment including character meet and greet.

  • And don't forget the food with 20 different dining venues

This is an amazing ship and truly a destination unto it's own. We look forward to sailing on her in October for our annual company conference.
