But in a few areas I did not perceive the unique design of the ship to be an advantage. For instance the exterior shape of the ship seemed a bit \"odd\" to me. The bow is somewhat \"stubby-looking\" and the stern is \"squared-off\" so that the ship does not have a \"sleek\" appearance from the outside. Adding to the irregular look is a massive 3-deck appendage that was seemingly \"plopped\" on top of the front section as an afterthought (or more likely to further maximize the ships interior space). Obviously the ships designers had to make some \"trade-offs\" to accomplish everything they did inside the ship and after all from a passengers perspective the interior design is far more important. The decor of the Epic is modern and somewhat more \"toned-down\" than other NCL ships. Getting around was not quite as easy because of the ships unique interior design. Rather than having its public areas running at a uniform width through the center of the ship the Epics interior gave the illusion of being designed that way but in several different places the interior width of the ship would seemingly vary and you would go to the right or to the left to enter another venue. So just when I thought I had seen the entire ship I would discover a new area. Having been on over 50 cruise ships I found the layout of the Epic to be very interesting and \"refreshing\".
If there are a couple of days where you are not in port the cruise ship will provide plenty of activities that you can join. They have art auctions trivia bridge lectures fitness classes and much more. And dont forget the spa. Make your spa appointments early since the sea days tend to be booked solid. So if you have decided to cruise the coasts of Europe you need to consider a few things. There are many destinations to choose from with the Mediterranean being the most popular. But you can opt to do the Baltic Scandinavia or the British Isles. Now you have to pick a cruise line that sails in to your chosen itinerary. Some of the cruise lines like Radisson SilverSea and Windstar are small and intimate. These cruise lines emphasis luxury and service. The other main stream cruise lines Princess Celebrity or Holland America to name a few carry thousands of passengers from 1500 to 3000. They are really floating resorts. Of course the costs should be considered too.
Not only as one ship it also used like a propaganda for promoting the cruising vacation. A Love Boat-- one 1970s television series-- had Pacific Princessa cruise of a named Princess Cruise. It has raised awareness of various cruises like one vacation opting only for very rich guys but also for very ordinary people in US. Cruise Ships -Present In 2004 therere hundreds of cruises which have a great carrying capacity of 3000 passengers and more displacing much more than 1 million tons. Thus its the largest ships which were ever built. It may cruise to destinations like Antarctica. Modern ships too are considered as a \"floating hotel\" having one complete staff in addition with a regular ship crew.
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.
