Barcelona - Embark Norwegian Epic
Norwegian Epic’s wonderful range of facilities makes her the perfect choice for all travellers, from fun-loving families to romantic couples and single passengers. Anyone who appreciates high-quality amenities and friendly, efficient staff will love cruising on the Epic. And, of course, guests can enjoy total freedom in doing whatever they want, whenever they want, thanks to NCL’s easy-going cruise style.
More like a marvellous resort at sea than a mere ship, there’s so much to do that you’ll discover new excitement every day of your fabulous cruise holiday. Browse the chic boutiques, look and feel your best at the sublime Mandara Spa, get active with the climbing and abseiling walls, or take it easy in one of the many quiet corners.
Head up the rich volcanic soil of the towering Mount Vesuvius, the only active volcano in mainland Europe, and savour some of the must lusted-after yet deceivingly simple Neapolitan pizza, made with tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. Naples also serves as a gateway to key destinations including Pompeii, Sorrento, Ravello, Positano, Capri and Ischia.
Explore Roman streets steeped in ancient history, where Byzantine mosaics grace church ceilings and cool catacombs slumber beneath your feet. In between chic cafés and serene statues on street corners, you’ll find treasures like the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.
Discover Florence, the capital of the Tuscany region, or head to Pisa to see the iconic Leaning Tower from the port of Livorno. Florence is an achingly romantic city of rivers, bridges and Renaissance art and architecture. Or you could explore Pisa’s charming Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and Renaissance piazzas and its vibrant cafe scene.
This glamorous destination is perfect for people-watching, for you might spot a celebrity or two passing by. Take a stroll along the beach, admire the liner-sized yachts moored by the port and uncover the real beauty Cannes holds; the old quarter, stunning islands off the coast and peaceful gardens resplendent with fountains.
Walk the narrow, cobbled streets of the Old Town, visit the ancient Arab Baths or simply soak up the rays on the sun-drenched city beach. As day stretches into night, take a stroll along the Passeig d’es Born boulevard and see the honey-hued La Seu Cathedral bathed in the golden glow of the fading light, before heading to a tapas bar to enjoy plates of spicy albondigas, sizzling gambas al ajillo and patatas bravas.
