Norwegian Epic will sail three, four, six, and seven night cruises to the Bahamas, Eastern and Western Caribbean. The interaries will be as follows:
- Three and Four night cruises – Stops in Nassau, Bahamas and Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian’s private island)
- Eastern Caribbean – Stops in Great Stirrup Cay, St, Thomas, and Tortola.
- Western Caribbean – Stops in Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Ocho Rios, and Great Stirrup Cay.
At just over 155,000 gross tons, Norwegian Epic has been the largest ship in Norwegian’s fleet since 2010. The vessel will remain Norwegian’s largest until Norwegian Escape (164,600 gross tons) makes her debut in November. Norwegian Escape will sail six through eight night cruises to the Caribbean out of PortMiami.
