NCL Gives Solo Travelers a Reason to Cruise on Norwegian Epic

NCL Epic StudioContinuing its history of innovation, Norwegian Cruise Line recently announced a completely new concept to make cruising more attractive to solo travelers on the company’s largest and most exciting Freestyle Cruising ship to date, Norwegian Epic, launching this July.   Norwegian Epic’s Studios are the first staterooms designed and priced for single occupancy. These specially designed and priced Studio staterooms available on all of Norwegian Epic’s sailings – with no single supplement – went on sale January 18, 2010.

“Historically, the cruise industry has not embraced the large number of people who enjoy traveling solo,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer.  “We are breaking the mold of traditional cruising once again by offering a stateroom designed and priced specifically for solo travelers, making cruising a more attractive travel option.  We invite all solo travelers – whether they are first-time cruisers or cruising veterans — to sail on our incredible new Freestyle Cruising ship, Norwegian Epic.”

NCL Epic StudioThe Studios on Norwegian Epic are a private key-card access complex on two decks consisting of 128 staterooms and the Studio Lounge.  This unique and thoughtfully designed concept provides comfort and convenience for the solo traveler.  Each Studio stateroom, at approximately 100 square feet of living space, features a contemporary design with a full-size bed and separate areas for the bathroom, sink and shower.  In addition, guests in the Studios have private access to the exclusive Studio Lounge.  Here, guests can grab a cup of coffee in the morning, meet up with fellow cruisers and plan their day or relax with a drink in the evening.  Since many of the Studio staterooms are connecting, there is also the opportunity for friends to travel together while giving each their own private space.

I think this is a very innovative move. A lot of us singles would like to cruise but find it not easy to find cruise partners. I would like to be included in any literature in your future “singles” cruises. Depending on price, I would be interested.

please inform me when you have special cruises for singles and or theme cruises on the Epic. Thank you. P.S. You may want to consider a Beading Cruise theme. Beading has become very big as of late.
