50 Days to Sailing Buts Who's Counting

You Can Book Ship Entertainment Reservations 45 Day From Sailing

sunny 38 °F

The ship I will be traveling on for 11 days is the Norweign Cruise Line's largest ship the "Epic". The ship is a resort at sea with over 4000 passengers and nearly 1800 crew while rising 18 floors above the water. I originally booked one of the new concept Solo passenger cabins that only NCL offers. Normally you would have to pay at least 1.5 times the single passenger cabin catagory price with many requiring you pay for the full two passenger price which is rediculous and cost prohibitive for me. In checking further with NCL I noticed that for $35.00 more I could book a regular interior room that can accomodate 2 adults and is 30 square feet larger with much less crampted layout. Cool, because I don't have a window!

The ship has over 20 dining options, two 3 lane bowling alleys, Cirque Dreams and Dinner, Murder Mystery Lunch Theater, Huge outdoor video screen and celebrity guest DJ turn the top aft of the ship into an Ibiza style beach club, Blue Man Group, The Second City® comedy troupe, a state-of-the-art fitness center, the huge Aqua Park with several 3 story tube style water slides, hot tubs, climbing and rappelling walls, bars and lounges of all kinds and of course a Casino. Only problem is lots of people living very close together and possible Norovirus. I'm very excited to have a chance to relax and meet new people who also enjoy travel. Will be looking for tips for my stay in Barcelona from my fellow passengers. In an effort to save money I am trying to organize a private tour when we arrive Barcelona that will also drop us off at our hotels. Just need 6 more fellow passengers!
