And every oceanview stateroom is a balcony stateroom.
Check out NCL Norwegian Epic's new Studios and Living Room complex. It’s private-access only to these 128 rooms. Some are connecting rooms, but they all have a modern, urban feel; mood lighting; and window to the corridor, as well as exclusive access to The Living Room, a private shared space only for guests staying in the Studios to spread out, watch the 50-inch TVs, go WiFi or hit the full bar.
Spa Staterooms
Check out the Spa Staterooms – totally new to Norwegian Cruise Line and as close as it gets to living in a spa. Here, guests staying in the Spa Suites, Spa Deluxe Balcony and Spa Balcony Staterooms enjoy private, key-card access to the stateroom area.
The Villas
The Villas is the biggest suite complex at sea and includes an array of Suites and Villas on two private decks at the top of the ship. Hidden away and accessible only by private elevator, the secluded Courtyard Area boasts a private pool, two hot tubs, gym, saunas, sundeck, indoor/outdoor dining and a bar/nightclub. And, of course, the butler and concierge are there to cater to your every whim.
Deluxe Owner's Suite
Staying in a Deluxe Owner’s Suite is like having your own luxurious apartment at sea, complete with a butler and concierge service. Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, there’s an ever-changing view that’s guaranteed to thrill, soothe and inspire. There’s plenty of room to stretch out in the living room with dining area, spacious bedroom, luxurious bathroom and the private balcony. As part of The Villas, guests will also enjoy exclusive access to The Villas Courtyard and the private lounge with special platinum key cards.
Family Accommodations
Freestyle Cruising is all about choice. So NCL has created the most flexible accommodation at sea – with more choices of connecting staterooms than any other cruise line. Norwegian Epic offers this flexibility in every category to keep you connected to your family while still providing plenty of privacy and space. Many of the Family Balcony Staterooms come with two lower beds that convert to a queen, one upper berth and a sofa bed, to sleep four comfortably. Plus, the family deck area is in close proximity to NCL's Kid’s Crew Zones.
New Wave Staterooms
Norwegian Epic's New Wave Staterooms are a leap forward in cruise ship accommodations. The walls have a delightful, contemporary curve. Concealed contour lighting and domed ceilings give the open feel of a skylight. Even the bathroom treatment is totally unique – every area is separate, including the shower and modern vanity top sink. And on Norwegian Epic, all the outside rooms are New Wave Balcony Staterooms. New Wave is the new way to travel in style.
Soothe your body and soul with a hot stone massage, a rejuvenating facial or a simple mani/pedi. Acupuncture, BOTOX and teeth whitening are also yours to be had. Then soak up some serenity in the multi-treatment pool or relax on the thermal benches. And if you stay in one of Norwegian Epic's Spa Suites and Spa Balcony Staterooms you will be pampered with private key-card entry to the Spa Accommodations area.
You’d have to travel the world to experience all of the unique hotspots aboard Norwegian Epic. Sip vodka in one of only 14 ice bars in the world. Enjoy exclusive bottle service and dancing under the stars at an open-air nightclub. Party alongside the pool on white-cushioned daybeds. From French Riviera chic and Ibiza style to Miami trendy and Vegas flair, the nightlife aboard Norwegian Epic has it all.
Families love the freedom and flexibility of Freestyle Cruising and they’re going to love all the family friendly innovations aboard this new ship. The exhilarating Aqua Park features multiple slides with multiple thrills. Play Wii on a two-story screen or bowl on one of the ship’s six alleys. Or take on a challenge at the sports complex and rock-climbing wall. Plus, there’s supervised fun for the kids at Recess and teen activities at Entourage, when adults need a little grown-up time.
Aqua Park
Suit up and splash down at NCL's first ever Aqua Park. Choose from three multi-story water slides of varying thrill factors. The first one is specifically designed for the not-so-adventurous and zips straight through the rock-climbing wall. The second slide is for the slightly more adventurous, because it twists and turns down three stories. Then there’s The Epic Plunge, the only tube slide at sea that puts the blast of inner-tubing into the core of a bowl slide, with a thrilling drop through a 200-foot long tube. The Aqua Park also includes two main pools with arching water effects that illuminate at night, five hot tubs, a wading pool and a kid’s pool that features whimsical sculptures, water sprays and a slide. Finally, when you are looking to dry off, there’s plenty of room to soak up some rays on one of our expansive sun decks.
NCL has pulled out all the stops for the young ones with a gigantic kid’s area and a special area just for tweens, known as Recess. Kids can blast off at the space station and enjoy age-appropriate and structured games. There’s even an interactive light up dance floor, Wii and PlayStation3 gaming areas and a private karaoke performance stage that doubles a state-of-the-art surround sound cinema. Plus, the expanded hours let mum and dad have time for their own fun. It’s a great time to be a kid on Norwegian Epic.
Bliss Lounge Bowling
Norwegian Epic features not one, but two of NCL's signature, industry-first bowling alleys at sea. There’s O’Sheehan’s Neighborhood Bar and Grill where the whole gang can head on over to the lanes and test their skills. Then there’s the three lanes at Bliss Ultra Lounge where during the day all ages are welcome and, at night, Bliss becomes an adults-only lounge where the game takes on a whole new look with special effects and lighting and illuminated neon-colored balls.
Guaranteed to attract all teens, Entourage is designed like an adult lounge minus the adults. Filled with all things important to the 13- to 17-year-old crowd including self-serve food and soda stations. During the day, it’s all play with PlayStation3, air hockey, pinball, foosball, a video jukebox and nine large flat-screen televisions. In the evening, Entourage turns into a teens-only nightclub with a space for dancing to a video jukebox and trendy seating arrangements for just hanging out.
Sports Complex
The Sports Complex has not one, but two decks to play on. Join a game of pickup on a full-sized basketball court or relive those school days playing dodge ball. Practice your swing in our batting cage. Even the climbing wall is incredible. Part rock and part vertical building, our new climbing wall is accessible on two levels with varying degrees of difficulty, rated according to official U.S. climbing grades. At 33 feet high and 64 feet wide, the extreme climbing wall includes a water tube weaving right through the middle and the first-ever rappelling wall at sea. There’s also a 24-foot tall enclosed climbing cage we call the Spider Web.

These, of course, are merely two of 17 dining options on board the ship. There’s an upscale steakhouse featuring both, tempting steaks and chops as well as a traditional Argentinean-inspired Churrascaria. There’s also NCL's signature French Restaurant, authentic Teppanyaki, family-style Italian, tempting Chinese, sensational sushi, freshly prepared pasta dishes at our action-stations and an absolutely amazing salad bar.
