The first ship of the third generation of Freestyle Cruising
Norwegian Epic, delivered to the shipowner NCL in June 2010, was at the time the largest ship built by Chantiers de l’Atlantique. A true marvel of advanced technologies, this ship illustrates perfectly the capabilities of Saint-Nazaire shipyard and its network of co-workers and suppliers in designing and building innovative ships, more and more respectful of the environment.
The first ship of the third generation of Freestyle Cruising, in which all passengers are free to do whatever they want whenever they want to, Norwegian Epic offers 27,000 m² of public areas. These areas allow the passengers to choose among many entertainment possibilities, with the addition of 14 restaurants revolving around worldwide cuisine. Chantiers de l’Atlantique managed to live up to the challenge of integrating all these premises with the technical constraint it implies, all the while building a ship with extraordinary hydrodynamic performances and low energy consumption.
Designed to host 5,200 passengers, Norwegian Epic stands out even more with its 38 categories of cabins, many of which have curved walls to optimize available space.
