NCL's newest ship Norwegian Epic will boast a range of firsts in entertainment and sports facilities at sea.
Its Aqua Park will have the only tube slide and largest bowl slide at sea which is set to be called The Epic Plunge.
The ship, which is set for delivery in May 2010, will also have the most bowling lanes at sea; a mixed-use sports deck offering eight different sporting activities; the first squash court at sea as well as the first ever abseiling wall at sea.
NCL has revealed its next generation of freestyle dining will have a choice of 14 restaurants - more than any other ship plus 18 bars and lounges.
NCL's chief executive officer Kevin Sheehan said: "From the Aqua Park to the expanded sports deck and largest Kid's Crew facility, to the most dining outlets at sea, Norwegian Epic is truly taking Freestyle Cruising to the next level by offering our guests so many choices in dining and on-board activities".
New dining options include The Manhattan Room, an art deco supper club and Shanghai's which serves traditional Chinese dishes.
Norwegian Epic will also have a large Teppanyaki restaurant, Le Bistro, Le Café Jardin for casual dining, The Great Outdoors, La Cucina Italian kitchen and Wasabi sushi and sake bar. The first Eastern Caribbean sailing for the ship is scheduled for 17 July, 2010.
