BARS & LOUNGES

NCL's Ice Bar
Now this truly is as cool as it gets. Inspired by the original ice hotels in Scandinavia, The Ice Bar is one of only 14 in the world and the only true ice bar at sea. Enter a glistening, frozen, fantasy-land where the bar, the walls, the tables, the stools, even the life-size sculptures are made out of ice. Let us help you slip into a faux fur coat to keep you warm in the chilly 17 F degrees. Of course, the vodka helps, too.

POSH Beach Club
A first of its kind beach club at sea that offers guests of The Villas the sizzle of South Beach and the ritz of the Riviera in an exclusive, adults-only setting. During the day, you can lounge on white-cushioned day beds and in private cabanas by the pool. At night, Posh becomes an open-air nightclub with exclusive bottle service and a DJ sparking the energy for the nonstop party.

Bliss Ultra Lounge and Nightclub
A light mist welcomes you as you enter into Bliss, as if to say, "You've just entered another realm. Welcome to the party." Then suddenly the electrifying aura of this hip, high-energy ultra lounge literally surrounds you. Music videos playing on multiple plasma screens create a magical mood. High-voltage tunes make everyone want to get their groove on, where else, but on the dance floor. And, cozy, custom loungers are the perfect spot to cap off the evening with a cocktail

Spice H20
As the sun sets, Spice H2O transforms into an adults-only, sultry, steamy, Ibiza-inspired beach club. The entertainment is non-stop as the pool floor rises to become a dance floor. A giant screen projects hypnotic visuals under a starry sky. Aerial performers mix dance moves with acrobatic choreography. And you find yourself in the center of it all, delighted that you're old enough not to have a curfew.

The Epic Club Lounge

For those with a taste for the best, there's nothing quite like The Epic Club Lounge. Villa guests have exclusive access to this private bar showcasing premium liquors and a salute to the good life. LED screens, framed like art masterpieces display video montages of the world's best artwork, music videos, films, celebrities, fashion and more.

ENTERTAINMENT

WE'VE CHANGED THE FACE OF CRUISING ENTERTAINMENT, LITERALLY.

Blue Man Group goes Freestyle
There's entertainment, and then there's the kind of entertainment where people leave saying something like, "That was AWESOME!" There's never been anything like them, at least on this planet. Think vibrating techno music, light shows, comedy, lots of paint and outrageously talented Blue Men creating a wildly fun party atmosphere. The Blue Man Group is so amazing, they could easily be reason enough to choose Norwegian Epic. But, of course, this party's just getting started. We've got award-winning live entertainment all over the ship that will rock your world.

If you think you've seen it all on a ship, we guarantee you haven't seen this. Norwegian Cruise Line is delighted to introduce Blue Man Group to a whole new audience, answering the question "Do blue men float?" It's another first in NCL's long line of firsts. For the first time ever, Blue Man Group is coming to the sea. Its entertainment pandemonium and it's only aboard Norwegian Epic.

Bring your family together with cruise activities and entertainment for kids-of-all-ages
When you're looking for a family vacation, you want activities and events that everyone can enjoy together. And with Nickelodeon(TM) at Sea, exclusively on Norwegian Cruise Line, you'll enjoy the ideal vacation where parents relax, kids play and families connect.

During your cruise, we'll set aside special Nickelodeon at Sea areas on the ship just for family styled nautical nonsense.

Cirque Dreams and Dinner

The evening's special is opulent eccentricity entertainment extravaganza presented with an array of world class talent, Broadway acrobatics, a touch of whimsy and tasteful participation. Enter a world where personality and presentation are served with spectacle and celebration in an unforgettable dining sensation "Cirque Dreams TM & Dinner".

Epic Theater
It takes a world-class venue to attract world-famous acts like Blue Man Group & Legends in Concert. Yes, you heard us right - Blue Man Group. These wildly popular shows which combine mystifying music, mayhem and multimedia theatrics are now part of the Norwegian Epic experience. And so is Legends in Concert, the longest running tribute show in entertainment history brings the world's greatest celebrity impersonators to the high seas. Now showing at The Epic Theater: something that is going to make the neighbors back home very jealous.

Fat Cats
Take five at this happening place with a split personality. Rock out with your favorite guitar riffs on a Gibson guitar. Or jam to some serious blues into the wee hours.

Headliners

Catch the dazzling performances of this acclaimed musical extravaganza- either headlining in the Epic Theater or for a special cabaret performance in the Tony Manhattan Room.

DINING

You're sure to find whatever you're craving with more than 20 different dining options.

Yes, we have two main dining rooms. No, you won't recognize them as such. Their dramatic design and delectable dishes were all inspired by the world's leading culinary capitals. These, of course, are merely two of the more than 20 dining options on board the ship. There's an upscale steakhouse featuring both, tempting steaks and chops as well as a traditional Argentinean-inspired Churrascaria.

ACTIVITIES

Family
So many exciting new activities so everyone can act their age-or not.

Families love the freedom and flexibility of Freestyle Cruising and they're going to love all the family friendly innovations aboard this new ship. The exhilarating Aqua Park features multiple slides with multiple thrills. Play Wii on a two-story screen or bowl on one of the ship's six alleys. Meet your favorite Nickelodeon characters like SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer with Nickelodeon at Sea. Or take on a challenge at the sports complex and rock-climbing wall. Plus, there's supervised fun for the kids at Recess and teen activities at Entourage, when adults need a little grown-up time.

Freestyle Cruising is all about choice. So we've created the most flexible accommodation at sea- with more choices of connecting staterooms than any other cruise line. Norwegian Epic offers this flexibility in every category to keep you connected to your family while still providing plenty of privacy and space. Many of the Family Balcony Staterooms come with two lower beds that convert to a queen, one upper bed and a sofa bed, to sleep four comfortably. Plus, our family deck area is in close proximity to our Kid's Crew Zones.

Aqua Park
SO FUN YOU'LL WANT TO CUT IN LINE.

Suit up and splash down at our first ever Aqua Park. Choose from three multi-story water slides of varying thrill factors. The first one is specifically designed for the not-so-adventurous and zips straight through the rock-climbing wall. The second slide is for the slightly more adventurous, because it twists and turns down three stories. Then there's the Epic Plunge, the only tube slide at sea that puts the blast of inner-tubing into the core of a bowl slide, with a thrilling drop through a 200-foot long tube. The Aqua Park also includes two main pools with arching water effects that illuminate at night, five hot tubs, a wading pool and a kid's pool that features whimsical sculptures, water sprays and a slide. Finally, when you are looking to dry off, there's plenty of room to soak up some rays on one of our expansive sun decks.

Recess
THE KIDS WON'T KNOW YOU ARE GONE.

We've pulled out all the stops for the young ones with a gigantic kid's area and a special area just for tweens, known as Recess. Kids can blast off at the space station and enjoy age-appropriate and structured games. There's even an interactive light up dance floor, Wii and PlayStation3 gaming areas and a private karaoke performance stage that doubles a state-of-the-art surround sound cinema. Plus, the expanded hours let mom and dad have time for their own fun. It's a great time to be a kid on Norwegian Epic.

Nickelodeon at Sea
Nickelodeon at Sea, exclusively on Norwegian Cruise Line

Get ready to set sail alongside SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and the rest of the Nickelodeon gang for an ideal family cruise vacation with Nickelodeon at Sea, exclusively on Norwegian Cruise Line.

Nickelodeon at Sea launches year-round aboard Norwegian Epic with her debut in July 2010. It's sure to be an unforgettable vacation experience where parents relax, kids play and families connect.

Nickelodeon All Access cruises, exclusively on Norwegian Cruise Line

If you're looking for excitement all day everyday, then you need to book a Nickelodeon All Access Cruise. It's all Nickelodeon, all the time aboard this special sailing on Norwegian Epic on 7/24/11.

Bowling
GET YOUR GAME ON.

Norwegian Epic features not one, but two of our signature, industry-first bowling alleys at sea. There's O'Sheehan's Neighborhood Bar & Grill where the whole gang can head on over to the lanes and test their skills. Then there's the three lanes at Bliss Ultra Lounge where during the day all ages are welcome and, at night, Bliss becomes an adults-only lounge where the game takes on a whole new look with special effects and lighting and illuminated neon-colored balls.

Entourage
HOTTEST UNDER 21 NIGHTCLUB EVER

Guaranteed to attract all teens, Entourage is designed like an adult lounge minus the adults. Filled with all things important to the 13- to 17-year-old crowd including self-serve food and soda stations. During the day, it's all play with PlayStation3, air hockey, pinball, foosball, a video jukebox and nine large flat-screen televisions. In the evening, Entourage turns into a teens-only nightclub with a space for dancing to a video jukebox and trendy seating arrangements for just hanging out.

Family Dining
TIME FOR A FAMILY REUNION

Sometimes kids can be the toughest critics of all. That's one reason why we offer 20 different dining options, including take-out choices and room service. So while adults enjoy a world of culinary options on board Norwegian Epic, kids can stick to their favorites including freshly grilled burgers, pizza or pasta. Even Chinese or grilled cheese. And afterwords, we'll do the dishes.

Sports Complex
THE FUN OF SATURDAY AFTERNOON, EVERYDAY.

The Sports Complex has not one, but two decks to play on. Join a game of pickup on a full-sized basketball court or relive those school days playing dodge ball. Practice your swing in our batting cage. Even the climbing wall is incredible. Part rock and part vertical building, our new climbing wall is accessible on two levels with varying degrees of difficulty, rated according to official U.S. climbing grades. At 33 feet high and 64 feet wide, the extreme climbing wall includes a water tube weaving right through the middle and the first-ever rappelling wall at sea. There's also a 24-foot tall enclosed climbing cage we call the Spider Web.

Spa
A world-class health spa, day spa and fitness center all rolled into one.

When we say full-service spa,we mean full-service spa. Soothe your body and soul with a hot stone massage, a rejuvenating facial or a simple mani/pedi. Acupuncture, BOTOX and teeth whitening are also yours to be had. Then soak up some serenity in the multi-treatment pool or relax on the thermal benches. And if you stay in one of our Spa Suites and Spa Balcony Staterooms you will be pampered with private key-card entry to the Spa Accommodations area.
