Just when you think your eyes can’t get any wider, you step on board. Welcome to the Norwegiean Epic!
Looking for a new, cool, hip cruise line that can handle your nightlife cravings? Well look no further! Let me introduce you to the Norwegian Epic, the next level of Freestyle Cruising with unparalleled nightlife and entertainment.
All I can say is that the nightlife aboard the ship will be “epic”. Check out Ice Bar. At 17 degress fahrenheit, it’s the hottest bar on the ship. A faux fur coat will keep you warm in the only true ice bar at sea……AWESOME! Oh, the vodka helps, too. The Norwegian Epic will have 19 bars, nightclubs and lounges, including the Ibiza-style Spice H20 and French Riviera-chic Posh Beach Club.
Sounds exciting right! Well, the Norwegian Epic does not set sail until Summer 2010, and will be offering cruises out of Miami to the Eastern and Western Caribbean, but guess what? You can still book your cruise today =)

Looking for some whipped cream and strawberry contests to liven up your vacation? Apparently they’re happening on overnight cruises off the coast of the Cyprus resort of Ayia Napa.
By day, Ayia Napa is a beautiful beach resort and it’s at least partly marketed as a family paradise. But locals are furious about the night cruises which attract young party-going tourists that have led to orgy photos being published in Norway.
The Cypriot police check the boats every day once they’re back at the port, and have found no evidence of anything illegal going on, so the cruises are continuing. Sounds like Cyprus doesn’t want to encourage this but hey, isn’t diversifying your tourism industry important these days? by amandak – Jaunted

A few months back we saw that plans to turn the Queen Elizabeth 2 cruise ship into a floating hotel in Dubai had been delayed. The owner, developer Nakheel had planned to moor it at the Palm Jumeirah development but now word has come that the ship may be on the move. The AP has an email from Nakheel saying that other ports have expressed interest in hosting the ship. Nakheel had purchased the ship for a reported $100 million and had plans to recreate the original decor and fittings of the ship from when she was launched in 1967 only with a modern day spin that included adding a 500-seat theater and building a massive spa complex. Those plans are are on hold as Nahkeel, which has developments across Dubai, is considering all offers and has applied to anchor the ship in Cape Town, South Africa.
The email said that the company is working “to ensure opportunities to experience QE2 in her current condition are maximized whilst ensuring her important heritage is at all times protected.” This seems like more continued spin from Nakheel which has been hard hit by Dubai’s real estate slump and tourism decline. The company has shelved a variety of projects including Donald Trump’s planned hotel and has received some of the $10 billion in government bailout funds. There are also reports of widespread layoffs. The company has said before it has no plans to sell the ship. There is widespread speculation as to whether the company will be able to pay off $3.5 billion worth of debt coming due this year so it seems that they might be willing to sell the QE2 if they can find a buyer. by Deidre Woollard – Luxist
