Norwegian Epic to offer dual embarkation in the Western Mediterranean

Norwegian Cruise Line announced today that a second embarkation option has been added to Norwegian Epic’s seven-day Western Mediterranean itinerary sailings from April 29, 2012 through October 17, 2012.

Guests will have the flexibility to begin their cruise vacation in either Barcelona, Spain or in Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy, where, starting today, a limited amount of staterooms will now be available for booking. A full range of staterooms will be offered including the two-bedroom family villa, courtyard penthouse, spa suite and studios.

The alternative seven-day cruise will start in Rome (Civitavecchia), Italy and call on Florence/Pisa (Livorno), Italy; Nice (Villefranche), France; Provence (Marseille), France; and Barcelona, Spain as well as a relaxing day at sea. The Rome embarkation cruises go on sale today with balcony staterooms starting at $1,299 per person, based on double occupancy, and will give guests the convenience of selecting an embarkation port that works best for their vacation.

The Mediterranean offers a unique taste of European culture, from exploring the ancient coliseum in Rome to visiting an entire village buried in volcanic ash in Pompeii.

The 4,100-passenger Norwegian Epic is home to world-class entertainment, such as Blue Man Group and Cirque Dreams and Dinner, and also offers the next generation of Freestyle dining with 20 restaurants on board.


The ship offers a range of amenities including the first ice bar at sea, an expansive Aqua Park, rappelling and rock wall, casino, spa and fitness center.
