#NCLEpic dazzles Miami with Freestyle Cruising

Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship, the NCL Epic, arrived yesterday to it’s new homeport of Miami, Florida.

NCL Epic offers the best of the “freestyle cruising” experience.
When you have thousands of choices, all of them right, that’s Freestyle Cruising on Norwegian Cruise Line

Freestyle means that you get to pick and choose what to do on your vacation.  NCL makes it easy to customize your vacation experience with a full menu of choices built to make cruisers happy.  Dress up or down. Sleep in or catch a sunrise from your own private balcony. Take in some never-before-seen entertainment at sea. Even eat somewhere different every day, on your own schedule.

NCL Epic Dining
You’re sure to find whatever you’re craving with more than 20 different dining options.

Freestyle Dining-it’s how Freestyle Cruising began. With no fixed dining times or pre-assigned seating, you’ll have more freedom throughout your entire cruise vacation. With so many different places to eat on board, you can experience all kinds of dining options – perhaps a different one every day.

Included in your cruise fare are two main dining rooms offering a tempting selection of entrees,  the plentiful buffets with made-to-order specials and a variety of casual cafes, grills and on-the-go choices. From fresh-baked breads, desserts and pastries to the Chef’s original dishes made with the freshest ingredients, everything is created to satisfy and delight.

In addition to all of the complimentary dining options available, Norwegian also pioneered the concept of specialty restaurants. For a nominal charge, you can experience a world of different cuisines and atmospheres.

On the NCL Epic, there are more than 20 dining options on board the ship. Remember that not all of them are included in the cruisefare, so make sure to stop by the reservation desk to check availability and prices the first day of your cruise.

Some dining choices on the NCL Epic include: an upscale steakhouse featuring both, tempting steaks and chops as well as a traditional Argentinean-inspired Churrascaria. There’s also their signature French Restaurant, authentic Teppanyaki, casual Italian, tempting Chinese, sensational sushi, freshly prepared pasta dishes at our action-stations and an absolutely amazing salad bar. You can even dine on eclectic world-cuisine poolside if you so desire. And for Villa guests who desire a much more intimate and upscale dining experience, we offer our very exclusive Epic Club and Courtyard Grill.

There’s entertainment, and then there’s the kind of entertainment where people leave saying something like, “that was AWESOME!” There’s never been anything like them, at least on this planet. Think vibrating techno music, light shows, comedy, lots of paint and outrageously talented Blue Men creating a wildly fun party atmosphere. The Blue Man Group is so amazing, they could easily be reason enough to choose Norwegian Epic. But, of course, this party’s just getting started. We’ve got award-winning live entertainment all over the ship that will rock your world.

If you think you’ve seen it all on a ship, we guarantee you haven’t seen this. Norwegian Cruise Line is delighted to introduce Blue Man Groupto a whole new audience, answering the question “Do blue men float?” It’s another first in NCL’s long line of firsts. For the first time ever, Blue Man Group is coming to the sea. Its entertainment pandemonium and it’s only aboard Norwegian Epic.

Cirque Dreams and Dinner
You are cordially invited to a one of a kind theatrical dining experience. The evening’s special is opulent eccentricity entertainment extravaganza presented with an array of world class talent, Broadway acrobatics, a touch of whimsy and tasteful participation. Enter a world where personality and presentation are served with spectacle and celebration in an unforgettable dining sensation “Cirque Dreams & Dinner”.

Epic Theater 
 A bonanza of full-production shows await.

Fat Cats
Take five at this happening place with a split personality. Rock out with your favorite guitar riffs on a Gibson guitar. Or jam to some serious blues into the wee hours.

If you love to laugh, you’re going to love the goings-on at Headliners. Spend an evening with The Second City Comedy Troupe and their unique form of sketch comedy. But be on your toes, for this includes lots of spontaneous entertainment and audience involvement.

Howl at the Moon

Catch the dazzling performances of this acclaimed musical extravaganza- either headlining in the Epic Theater or for a special cabaret performance in the Tony Manhattan Room

The Second City
Spend an evening with The Second City Comedy Troupe and their unique form of sketch comedy. But be on your toes, for this includes lots of spontaneous entertainment and audience involvement

With rooms like these, it’s a shame you can’t be in two places at once

    1. @CruiseBuzz NCL Freestyle Cruising is way too much like Carnival Cruising for my taste. A bit more sophistication please.
