Over the next week,Â IÂ will be sailing aboard Norwegian Cruise Lineâs largest ship, the Norwegian Epic. The sailing will embark inÂ CivitavecchiaÂ today, July 3rd,Â and willÂ to a number of popular ports of call throughout the Mediterranean. As a first time cruiser of Norwegian and a seasoned Mediterranean cruiser, I am very excited to sail on this combination of cruise line, ship, and itinerary.
Embarking in CivitavecchiaÂ later today, the Norwegian EpicÂ will set sail on a 7Â night western MediterraneanÂ sailing. Over the next week, we will call in a number of exciting ports, including Livorno (gateway to Naples and Pisa),Â Cannes, Palma,Â Barcelona,Â and Naples (gateway to Pompeii.) On my past Mediterranean sailing, I called in both Palma and Barcelona, but am equally excited to return to these ports and continue exploring as well as discovering my new ports of call.
The Norwegian Epic is a unique ship within the Norwegian fleet, unique as in she has no sister ship. Launched in 2009, the ship became Norwegianâs largest and most innovative ship to date. FeaturingÂ 19 passenger decks, around 15 different dining options, a bowling alley, rock climbing wall, massive waterpark, SpiceH20, and an extensive array of high quality entertainment, the Norwegian Epic is one of the most action packed ships sailing the seven seas today. As an avid cruiser, I am extremely excited to give the Epic a try and experience my first true âbig shipâ sailing.
Our stateroom for the sailing is 8036, a standard balcony located forward and on the port side of the ship.Â The stateroom is a typical cruise ship stateroom, but features a unique curved wall design as well as a unique bathroom setup. These stateroom layouts have really created some discussion within the industry and Iâm looking forward to experiencing this design first hand. Stay tuned for the full rundown.
