What to expect at NCL Epic's Ice Bar

Inspired by Scandinavia’s ice bars and ice hotels, the cruise industry’s first true ice bar is on Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest ship the NCL Epic.

The NCL Epic’s SVEDKA Ice Bar is made using 1,585 gallons of water and is set in changing hues of blue, green and purple LED lighting that simulates the Northern Lights to create a distinctive arctic atmosphere.

The SVEDKA Ice Bar features a bar, walls, tables, stools, glasses and life-size sculptures all made from ice. Guests are given hooded coats and gloves to keep them warm as the room’s temperature does not rise above -8 degrees Celsius.

The SVEDKA Ice Bar accommodates 25 people and can be reserved from 5:30 p.m-10:30 p.m. nightly for $20 per person which includes two signature cocktails. There are six specialty drinks made from SVEDKAvodka and Inniskillin ice wine including:

– Polaris: SVEDKA Citron, Inniskillin ice wine, and lemon/lime soda;
– Cobalt Blue: Inniskillin ice wine, SVEDKA vodka, and Blue Curacao;
– Nordic Apple Juice: SVEDKA vodka, Sour Apple Schnapps, Midori and a splash of fresh sour;
– Caribbean Dreams: SVEDKA Citron, Triple Sec, and lemon juice;
– Sunburst Yellow: SVEDKA vodka, peach liquor and orange juice; and
– Northern Lights: SVEDKA Citron, Cointreau, and Blue Curacao.

For those that don’t drink, who want to partake in the fun, the SVEDKA Ice Bar offers two non-alcoholic drinks, the Strawberry Eskimo Kiss made of strawberry puree, pineapple juice and lemon juice and the Creamsickle, with orange juice, vanilla ice cream, and milk – all served in specially-created glasses made entirely of ice.

With just space for 25 guests at a time to try this novelty, cruise guests will want to secure their spot early on during the cruise to avoid disappointment.

SVEDKA Ice Bar Facts
It takes approx. 6,000 liter / 1,585 gallons of water to make the ice bar. That is the equivalent of:
– The same as pouring 10,563 pints
– It is enough water to make 17,143 cups of tea
– Enough buckets to wash a car 500 times
– The water could fill 36 standard sized baths
– Or you could chisel the ice off and make 60,000 ice cubes.

What do you think about the ice bar? I think it is a cool concept, and I can’t wait to give it a try.
