Norwegian Epic gets funkier

Posted by Anita Dunham-Potter On March - 18 - 2009

Epic Studio StateroomThis morning at the Cruise Shipping Convention in Miami Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) revealed more details on its hip accommodations to be offered on its next Freestyle ship, Norwegian Epic that will debut in May 2010.

The new ship will feature a ship-within-a-ship suite complex that will encompass 60 suites and villas on two private decks at the top of the ship. Guests staying in one of these suites will have access to the Courtyard Villa complex featuring a pool, two whirlpools, gym, saunas, sundeck, indoor/outdoor dining, bar/nightclub and concierge lounge.

NCL has also designed accommodations for the budget-conscious traveler. The ship’s new category of inside staterooms, The Studios, are being dubbed ultra-modern, with a unique use of space and feature a large, round window that looks out into the corridor. There’s even customizable color-changing lighting that will mirror different stages of the day, or the guest’s mood, including a love setting for those romantic nights at sea—woo hoo! The Studios occupy two decks (Deck 10 and 11) and offer exclusive access to the Living Room, a two-story shared private lounge.

Another NCL first: Introducing spa balcony, deluxe-balcony staterooms and suites located within the spa with complimentary access to the ship’s thermal suite and fitness center.

All the aforementioned accommodations complement the ship’s New Wave Inside, Balcony and Deluxe Balcony staterooms announced last year.

If you want to book these staterooms the only way to do so (for now) is through a travel agent. NCL has opened bookings for on Epic exclusively for travel agents before the ship goes on sale to the general public later this spring.
