Norwegian Epic Dining

There is a whopping 17 dining options on board Norwegian Epic, besides the 18 bars and lounges that are also available on board. This ship, like the rest of the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet, features Freestyle Dining onboard. This means that you caneat where you want, when you want and who whomever you want! Unlike many other cruise lines, NCL does not have assigned tables or times for their dinners - they allow you to show up NCL Epic Diningto the dining rooms (for breakfast, lunch and dinner) whenever is best for you (of course, within the hours of operation of the dining rooms). Pizza 24/7 is a new program available on board Norwegian Epic, where you can have a full pizza pie delivered to just about anywhere on the ship (at a cost). Of course, there is always the option to enjoy NCL's 24-hour room service...FREE OF CHARGE!

As Norwegian Cruise Line says, "Dinner is Served at Whatever O'Clock!"

Norwegian Cruise Line refers to their dress code as "resort casual." This means that the clothes worn in the main dining rooms during dinner are not too dressy, but not too casual During the day, almost anything goes. Khakis, skirts, jeans, casual tops, shorts, or whatever are all fine. Even if you've just been at the pool and don't feel like changing, no worries. Swimwear with a cover-up is fine at their buffets and outdoor restaurants. At night, it's relaxed all over the ship. When you're ready for dinner, it's Norwegian Epic Diningcollared shirts and pants or nice jeans for guys. Slacks or jeans, dresses, skirts and tops are perfect for women. Kids 12 and under are welcome to wear nice shorts in our restaurants whenever. If you want to dress up and add a little glamour when you dine out, feel free - they've reserved a restaurant just for that.

Lobster lovers will be happy to know that NCL has lobster dishes in every specialty restaurant onboard, every single night!

Dining at select specialty venues does result in an additional charge. For specific details on each of the dining venues that are on board Norwegian Epic please reference the details and photos provided below...
