|The NCL Epic...Just my Opinion!|
What I like to do onboard the
(forget the ports!)
Me? I go on vacation to relax. Stick me in a lounge chair, with a rum punch on a sunny day and I am in cruise heaven. Bingo at 4, Hydrotherapy Pool at 5, a fantastic dinner at Cagneys with a great bottle of wine, then drop me in the disco until midnight... you had me at Want to go on a Cruise?!!!!
But everyone is not me. We all have a different idea of what floats our boat (pun definitely intended!). And the NCL Epic pleases everyone! No matter what YOU like to do, you can see everything happening on the ship on the iTV that is in your stateroom. Dining, activities, shore excursion...I mean everything can be arranged from your iTV. So easy. It is your vacation...do what YOU want to do!
The Get Up & Go type
For those sports lovers...ever watch your favorite football team on a 2 story tall Screen? You can on the NCL Epic. On theNCL Epic sports are larger than life. Are you the active type? Cant just sit and relax....try rappelling down a 34 foot rock wall or taking a spin class in Pulse Fitness. I havent even mentioned the full size basketball court, the Bungee Jumper or the very cool Spider Web. There are even 6 Bowling lanes! Yes...there is plenty to keep the sporty bunch happy!
The Make Laugh & Smile type
Love to be entertained? OMG! How about dining while acrobats perform at Cirque Dreams...bet you never did that! Between the Blue Man Group every night (and it is all included!) and the Second City improv sensation from SNL at the Headliners, my face hurt from laughing so hard! I cruise often, and this was the best entertainment I have seen. Howling at the Moon with the Dueling piano players was a singalong on steroids! So much fun and such talented performers. NCL even put on a Dancing with the Stars competition that had me laughing when I woke up in the morning! Well done NCL!
The Club Crawling type
Prefer exercising on the dance floor while drinking enhanced beverages? (yes...alchohol!) I might suggest the Epic Pub Crawl - 5 bars in 45 minutes (drinking games & marching chants included!). Crawl through:
Cascades-Play poker under a crystal chandelier
Maltings - Beer and Whiskey tasting bar
Spice H2O - Adult only day and night lounge with a pool!
OSheehans Bar and Grill - Ultimate Sports bar
Shakers Martini Bar - (I think! HEY, it was # 5!!)
Another night we did the fire and Ice thing...freeze your toes off in the only Ice Bar at sea. THATS a new experience...Brrrrrrrrrrrrh. Spice H2O will then heat you up with Epics White Hot Party - a red hot event!! Actually...it ended up pink! Kudos to NCL for giving to Breast Cancer!
OH, but I am not done there...every night I ended up in the Bliss Ultra Lounge for a game of pool (dressed in a Toga) & hours of dancing. With a great DJ, sexy decor and get up and dance lighting, it is Blissful! WHY cant they have clubs like this in Freehold!
What do you like to do on a cruise? Art auction, NCL U Martini classes, Wii on the big screen, photography classes, ballroom & Salsa dancing, cooking classes...so many options.
Me, you will find me on NCL Epic, lying in the sun deck listening to the Caribbean band and cracking up at the Hairy Chest contest! I am a NCL University of Fun Graduate!
