Epic Studios Life 2.0: Why Norwegian Epic is great for single cruising 01/25/11
Epic Studios is a new idea that is constantly evolving. It was only one month since my previous cruise, yet there are some positive changes done.
I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Norwegian Epic changed their policy for solo cruisers gathering. Now any single traveler can stop by at Living Room between 5.30-6.30 pm and meet new folks for sharing the dinner or shore excursions.
Mingling with fellow while having a drink or cup of cappucino helps to socialize those people who regularly would spend a cruise wandering around the ship alone.
Of course there are those who prefer their solitude on the ship, relaxing with the book and going to the dinners by themselves. Yet majority of solo cruisers seem being glad and enjoy their cruising experience more when they have a group of the fellow passengers to share activities. And Epic’s Living Room Coordinator helps a lot in organizing events and making sure Studio residents needs are met.
We got a great company in Living Room this week. As always, a lot of the people from different countries all united by their love for cruising. For most of them it was the first time cruising alone, and everybody loved their accomodation and Studios concept where independent travelers are considered as valuable cruisers.
I will repeat myself again: as of today, Norwegian Epic is the best ship for solo cruisers. Most of Studio cruisers say they would definitely come back on the Epic again.
This time I also found out that Living Room has many board games: Monopoly, Trivia, checkers. I have one suggestion, though: having some party games like “Truth or Dare” or “Picturegram” would bring some more fun, and helps to learn more about each other.
Also, many Studios residents wish there was another meeting in the morning – it would be helpful in planning daily activities. Even half hour would work, they said. Well, Epic is very “young” ship and constantly evolving, and the Studios idea is absolutely innovative. The Epic Hotel Director is doing the best job at incorporating suggestions and new ideas of how to make the cruise on Epic as perfect as possible, for all categories of travelers.
