NCL has announced it will showcase new ship Norwegian Epic to travel partners in the UK with a two-night inaugural on June 22, 2010 following her arrival in Southampton.


Following her delivery from the shipyard in mid-June Norwegian Epic will sail to Rotterdam for a two-night inaugural cruise departing on June 19.

This will be followed by a one-night cruise from Rotterdam to Southampton leaving on June 21. After her Southampton inaugural, Norwegian Epic will begin a transatlantic crossing to New York departing on June 24. The ship will be christened in New York on July 2, which will be followed by a three-night inaugural cruise over the July 4, Independence Day weekend.

Once Epic arrives at her home in Miami, the ship will sail a two-night inaugural cruise departing on July 8. Epic’s first seven-day Eastern Caribbean voyage is scheduled for July 10 and is currently on sale, along with the ship’s alternating Western Caribbean sailings.

Kevin Sheehan, NCL’s chief executive officer said: “We are confident that they have the expertise, dedication and passion to make Norwegian Epic’s launch and inaugural season extremely successful.”
