Do you want to tour Europes coastline but feel exhausted about the daunting task of packing and unpacking many times? The perfect solution is to take a cruise along Europes coastline. There are numerous cruises offered for the Mediterranean the North Sea the Baltic and other coastlines of Europe. The cruise ships that ply those waters can range from 100 to 3000 passengers. All of the newer ships cruising Europes coastline while very large offer more amenities like private balconies. All of the cruise ships will have pools spas and entertainment. There are alternative ways to cruise Europe. You could for instance take a river cruise on the Danube or perhaps the Rhine. These luxurious cruise ships will gently ply the rivers passing beautiful scenery. They will stop at many ports so the passengers can get off and explore. These cruise ships are not tall like other cruise ships because they are designed to fit under the many bridges that span the rivers. They do not carry the mega amount of passengers usually 50 to 200.
Another featured act on NCLs cruise ships is the Second City Comedy Troupe. Although I did not see their show on the Epic (... there just wasnt enough time to do everything... ) my wife and I have seen them on several other NCL cruise ships. In general we found their \"rehearsed\" skits to be very funny and their \"ad-libbed\" routines very \"un-funny\" (but then again I never really enjoyed watching Jonathan Winters who was regarded by many people as an \"ad-lib\" comedic genius). Activities on the ship were plentiful. Unique to the Epic were the \"Epic Plunge\" (a massive 7-deck water slide) 6 bowling alleys and the SVEDKA Ice Bar (which NCL touts as the first ice bar at sea) in which the entire contents (including the bar) are made of ice and the venue is maintained at a \"toasty\" 17-degree temperature to keep it from melting. Now thats \"really cool\"! Patrons are provided with heavy jackets before entering and vodka is clearly the beverage of choice.
In addition to a swimming pool and an arcade room a lot of cruise ships have an onboard film theater or a performance stage. To identify if the movies on the ship are suitable for your child you should always make sure to check the cruise ships movie schedule. Restaurants and other dining centers on your cruise ship are likely to cater to kids under the age of twelve. Lots of restaurants have kids menus. These menus usually consist of tasty but kid sized meals. The cost of your kids meals will differ from ship to ship; nevertheless numerous cruise ships provide discount rates on meals for children under the age of twelve. On some ships food is included with the total cost of your cruise.
Conclusion While onboard one of NCLs executives asked me what I thought of the ship and what type of client it would be best suited for. Without hesitation I responded that the Epic would be most appreciated by the client who has been on many cruise ships and now wants to experience something truly unique. Consistent with that its no coincidence that my wife booked the 15-year anniversary cruise for Direct Line Cruises staff on the NCL Epic and now that weve gotten a small \"taste\" of it we can hardly wait until September when we set sail on the Epic for 7 nights.
