An Epic design for solo cruisers

Norwegian Cruise Line’s (tel: 866-234-7350; epic.ncl.com) new ship, Epic, has 19 decks that can accommodate 4100 passengers. Its Epic Theatre hosts the Blue Man Group and Legends in Concert. It consists of an Aqua Park, an Ice Bar and 20 different dining options: the Spiegel Tent’s Cirque Dreams and Dinner is the “Big Top meets Moulin Rouge,” while Teppanyaki features 12 oversized Hibachi grills and knife acrobatics.

Yet it’s the ships smallest rooms that are getting a lot of hype. Their 128 studios are designed and priced for solo travellers. Yep; goodbye single supplement and weird roommates. The 100-square-foot (9.29-square-metre) rooms feature a full bed, a separate sink, shower and toilet, a flat-screen TV and a one-way window that looks out into the corridor. Studio guests also get key-card access to a private, two-storey lounge. You can book directly with the cruise line or with a travel agency; some often block space for their groups in advance and lock in prices that are lower than cruise-line rates.
