NCL formally released images of the Norwegian Ugly, er, I mean Epic this week. You can see them here at our sister website's news page.

I'll close that other thread and we can have a new discussion here.

Here is the link to the NCL website which Penny had posted in the other thread.

The NCL Epic is certainly a unique enough design! I'll bet she'll have some unique handling characteristics due to the effects of windage upon her superstructure. No doubt there will not be any problems in identifying her from a distance!(or anywhere else-for that matter!)

It has been a long time since there has been a true "forecastle" on a passenger ship!

I like the lines of the cabins, especially the balcony and deluxe. They look to have an interesting flow to the design.

Sandy - The cabins look like fun, I like the variation in design. She appears to be offering many interesting dining and entertainment options - the "Ice Bar" being my favorite. Just like RCCL's "Oasis" the NCL "Epic" is going to be a different kind of an adventure. I, for one, look forward to the changes in cruise adventures,with enthusiasm!

Bon Voyage,

That like describing a blind date to your buddy as "big boned but with a lovely personality". If they didn't have the protrusion up top, it would be a nice looking ship... but with it, it looks like a Beluga Whale. She is going to have to have a great personality...

She sure looks like an engineering nightmare, but I bet she'll be fantastic in real life.

Penny, I agree. I'm sure they know what they're doing, it looks a little front heavy to me though. I like the cabin designs.

Just off the NCL Sky and they have incorportaed the beds with rounded corners in the rooms. They were very nice, very firm and the rounded corners is a great idea, especially when walking around in the cabin. We had a balcony stateroom. I understand they will be the same type as on the new Epic.

FYI...The NCL Sky is a beautiful ship.
