20 restaurants, 9 bars, Adult Only Beach Club and party till you drop: Is this the life of a Bon Vivant?
On July 2, country legend Reba McIntyre christened the latest large ship to set sail the Norwegian Cruise Lines Epic. Industry insiders are comparing the 1200 passenger ship to Las Vegas. The vessel boasts 20 restaurants including an elegant French Bistro Le Bistro Restaurant, Cagney’s Steak House serving classic American beef dishes, the Manhattan Room designed to replicate a private NY supper club and several Asian and European restaurants. To complement the large selection of Free Style Dining, the Epic also features the first and only ice bar at sea. The Svedka Bar was inspired by the Scandinavian ice hotel concept and of course serves up a full menu of you guessed it vodka inspired delicacies.
Guests who want to experience something really unique can make reservations at the New Cirque Dreams & Dinner. This one of a kind dinner theatre is located in the Spiegal tent which was built on 2 decks of the Epic. The show features 16 performers and a cast of 15 – 20 servers that are also part of the show.
And that is not all. There is non stop entertainment throughout the ship. From state of the art beach parties, to the Blue Man Production, the Second City Comedy Show, Fat Cats Jazz Club, Legends in Concert or Howl at the Moon. For those seeking a more relaxed atmosphere the Epic is home to 9 unique bars including a Sake bar, a whisky bar and of course a martini bar. And if a Cuban cigar is what you seek there is a lounge to accommodate your pleasure. With all this stuff to do a Bon Vivant can spend a month on such a ship and never get bored.
