Norwegian Cruise Line’s largest ship, Norwegian Epic, arrived this morning in Barcelona, Spain to begin another season of seven-night Mediterranean cruises until November 22nd 2015.
The award-winning Norwegian Epic features a new entertainment line-up for her cruises from her new homeport, debuting throughout 2015.
Two new Broadway shows will take to the stage as headliners: Burn the Floor and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert – The Musical, coming in October.
The ship will also feature an all-new British pop music entertainment experience, The Cavern Club, bringing the legendary Liverpool venue where the Beatles performed to life at sea.
“We are very excited to bring Norwegian Epic back to Europe.
“With her innovative accommodation and wide array of dining, spa and leisure amenities, she truly is the best ship to sail the Med and beyond in summer and in winter,” said Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line’s president and chief operating officer.
“The new world-class entertainment offerings that guests can enjoy will even further elevate the guest experience, giving them more options to create their perfect cruise holiday.”
Broadway sensation Burn the Floor, which has received rave reviews on Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway, brings the sizzle and passion of ballroom dancing to Norwegian Epic with “Ballroom Blitz”, an all-new and exciting show specifically designed for European guests.
Based on the Oscar-winning movie, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert – The Musical is the heart-warming, uplifting comedy adventure of three friends who hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship and features a hit parade of dance floor favourites, including “It’s Raining Men”, “I Will Survive” and “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”.
The show will open on the ship’s October 18th 2015 voyage along with a whole new entertainment venue created through an exclusive partnership with the owners of Liverpool’s The Cavern Club – The Beatles’ original breakthrough venue – which will rock guests each evening to the sounds of The Beatles and other international musicians.
