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. This article was written by Thomas Coiro Vice President of Direct Line Cruises Inc. Direct Line Cruises is a cruise-only agency that has been in business since 1995 and is located in Long Island New York.
Norwegian is also more casual than other cruise ships and skips the assigned dining times. If youre looking forward to a fantastic dining experience Oceania is known for wonderful specialty restaurants while Celebrity is famous for healthful and alternative dining choices. But if luxury is the goal Crystal Cruises offer some of the best luxury ships and fine dining to be found at sea or check out Costa Cruises Concordia class for an incredible spa experience. Of course for many people the budget is an important issue. Cruises can be divided into three basic categories - budget premium or luxury. On-board amenities as well as on-shore activities play a role in price but probably the primary difference in the categories will be the staff-to-customer ratio.
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.
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.
