Entertainment And Activities It may be hard to believe but the show by the Blue Man Group actually exceeds NCLs hype! It was the most unique (... yes Im using that word again... ) and professional act Ive seen on any cruise ship. Thoroughly funny and entertaining I would rather see that show night after night than to sit through some of the same old \"Broadway song-and-dance\" shows Ive seen on so many other cruise ships. The Blue Man performance was in the ships main theatre which considering the size of the Epic was relatively small (with a seating capacity of under 600 people). However despite that fact the theatre was not \"packed\" because consistent with NCLs concept of \"Freestyle Cruising\" the Epic was designed with multiple entertainment venues each offering a different show.
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.
When I opened it I noticed all the entries were in Greek. I was able to discern some dates and other data that told me when the ship was last in service but I could not read the Greek entries so I handed the engine log back to the ship owner and told him \"Its all Greek to me.\" Being Greek Mr. Kosmas failed to find the humor in that. Lets look at the numbers on this ship. 100% of the acquisition cost would have been $500000. 1% thus = $5000. One hundred buyers could own one percent each. There are 120 cabins so each co-owner could have a private cabin with 20 cabins left over. However these cabins are a bit on the small side. Every cabin does have a bath and shower but the size is just too small to be comfortable for most people especially if the owners intend to live onboard full time.
I am happy to report that all the electric and air-conditioning requirements can be met by running just one of the three Daihatsu generators. These generators are very economical to operate in terms of fuel consumption and maintenance. I was able to negotiate with the owner John Kosmas and get some concessions. I got the price down to $500000. And at that price he agreed to bring the ship into compliance with SOLAS 2005 and also to include new paint topside. The ship was fairly well furnished even including bed linen but the ship had been laid up for years. Its most recent service was in the Mediterranean and Black Seas. Cruise ships that trade exclusively in the Mediterranean and Black Seas tend to have smaller cabins and fewer amenities than the typical cruise ships that frequent the Caribbean. The bottom line is that this ship was an economy model not a luxury model. When I was inspecting the engine room I asked for the engine log.
