The \"Hardware\" When discussing the physical attributes of a cruise ship (i.e. its layout and appearance) industry professionals often refer to the ships \"hardware\". So lets start there. At 153000 tons with a passenger capacity of 4100 (based on double occupancy) the Norwegian Epic is by far the largest ship in the NCL fleet. In fact with the exception of Royal Caribbeans Oasis of the Seas (which was launched in December 2009) NCLs Epic is among the largest cruise ships at sea. It is also one of the most uniquely designed cruise ships that I have ever been on (... and Ive been on quite a few). In most cases that \"uniqueness\" is a very positive attribute which reflects the thoughtfulness and attention that the Epics designers must have paid to maximizing the use of space to achieve a much bigger wide-open \"feel\" to all of the ships public areas. And the way that one area just seemed to \"flow\" into the next (without the \"cookie-cutter\" rigidity sometimes found on cruise ships) was truly remarkable.
In addition to Blue Man Group the NCL Epic showcased \"Legends In Concert\" which featured impersonated performances by Elvis Madonna Tina Turner Michael Jackson and other \"super-stars\". If you like this sort of thing you will probably enjoy it very much. Otherwise you may find it to be \"OK\" as I did. Another Epic \"first\" is Cirque Dreams and Dinner which is performed by an exceptionally talented group of acrobats in a special theater-in-the-round called the Spiegel Tent. Several of our staff members saw this show and said that it was very good but perhaps a bit too long. My wife and I saw a very different show in the Spiegel Tent. Our 3-year-old granddaughter who we were able to bring with us is a big fan of \"Dora the Explorer\" and \"Diego\" and she just loved the Nickelodeon character breakfast which in addition to Dora and Diego also featured \"Sponge Bob Square Pants\" \"Jimmy Neutron\" and others. In an exclusive deal with NCL the Nickelodeon characters are presently appearing on the Epic and the NCL Jewel (which now sails year-round out of New York City) and will eventually appear on several other NCL ships.
The age groups as well as the themes catered for should also be looked at closely. There are cruise ships that do not allow children on board. Therefore individuals who would like to travel as a family will not be able to board such a ship. Furthermore certain ships have themes that are directed towards particular interests. Cruises that have sports themes with mini golf and swimming areas will not be enjoyable for individuals who are not sports enthusiasts.The environment in the cruise ship is also mentioned in a lot of cruise ship reviews. The individuals should always consider this in order to ensure that they are not bored during the trip. Some cruises have a very formal atmosphere while others have a party or carnival mood. The type of mood that the traveler would like should therefore be considered or they will definitely not enjoy themselves. It is a fact that cruises are very expensive and individuals who go on such trips always like to get their moneys worth. An individual who reads cruise ship reviews will be able to get a clear picture of what a certain cruise is like. This will help them to decide on the particular cruise before they swipe their card or open their wallet.
If personalized service and having someone at your beck and call is important to you opt for a luxury cruise ship. Cruise ships also come in a wide range of sizes although size may not be the primary concern. Cruise West and SeaDream Yachts offer some of the smallest ships under 200 passengers. Small ships will offer a more personalized experience and their size allows them to visit smaller and less-traveled ports. As a down side smaller ships arent able to offer the extravagant entertainment of larger ships. If youre prone to sea-sickness a larger ship is definitely the better option. The larger the ship the less noticeable the rolling motion of travel at sea. One last consideration that may not come immediately to mind - is this a maiden voyage or will you be traveling on an established ship? While the first thought may be \"the newer the better\" there are disadvantages to being on the first trip of a new cruise ship.
