Norwegian Epic??
 
Has anybody seen the article about it on the cruisemates news page?
Typically i dont have a problem with hardly any of the new ship designs, but this thing has got to be the ugliest ive ever seen.

Here is the sketch....

Djcarolina March 4th, 2009 04:39 PM

It looks like the ship is wearing a sailors hat.

Well i dont care what a ship looks like on the outside. I mean im going ot be staying and chylling on the inside so what does it matter. I bet that ship is got lots of things to do.

Norwegian just builds some ugly stuff.

Here is the only US flagged cruise ship, supposedly the "Pride of America"

I'm not proud of that, that things ugly lol

spencercoop March 4th, 2009 06:51 PM

I agree, it's ugly!!

cruiseeeeaddict March 4th, 2009 07:05 PM

that's strange they'd build such an ugly ship when some of their ships are really pretty with the fancy paint jobs!

Djcarolina March 4th, 2009 08:33 PM

I do agree that some of Norwegian's newer ships have very nice exterior artwork, lots of time invested in that, no doubt.

PaCruise March 4th, 2009 08:40 PM

The ship looks different.

where they make fun of movies you knoww.. and this makes me think they're making fun of cruise ships. lol

Mikenikes March 5th, 2009 11:47 PM

That has got to be one of the ugliest cruise ships I have ever seen haha.

yeah after 7 cruises on ncl I am pretty turned off ESPECIALLY after they wanna build that stupid thing lol

About a year ago (im sure plans have changed) I heard that the cabins are "curved", there is no atrium, theres no buffet?? and it has some really weird things like this ice bar, where they put a fur coat on you and you can go drink inside with like 20 other people, its really weird but worth looking into.

Hey what was your spirit experience like? If you want, PM it cuz i don't wanna hijack their thread, but I am interested to know. I havent met anyone else on here whose done the spirit as well.

Peter2852 March 8th, 2009 01:19 AM

Oh yeah and about the pride of america, from what I heard the govt began to build the hull here in the US and then gave up plans on it, so NCL bought it and brought it to Europe where they completed it, but due to its narrow size they had to put about 15 decks on it.

2 weeks before it was finished, it began to sink at the drydock due to a bad storm. NCL's parent line, star cruises, had to give over the Spirit to take the place for the Pride of America until it could be repaired.

Well the looks of the ship matched my experience on it also! First and probably last NCL cruise. The single solo cabin and livingroom were great but the food and boardline rude workers were not so great.

I typically don't comment on ghost threads that have been brought back, but your post merited a comment. NCL is EXTREMELY hit or miss. I've heard great things, I've experienced terrible things. I guess it depends on what you sail. Also of note is that the entire industry seems to be shifting to a "fast food" model. More people, less service, more generic product.
