- Kris L+1She's sailed in 70 knots wind and through storms already and she's still here.
Plus, I'm sure the nautical engineers have thought about her height when designing her. It's sort of a big deal! ;)Jan 18, 2014
- My favourite NCL ship!Jan 20, 2014
- Dear Hannah, I bet Epic is the everyone's fav NCl ship! ;)
And she operates perfectly even without the fancy Azipods - saving some fuel but also causing so many problems these days in other lines' fleets.Jan 21, 2014
- You are getting a bit technical for me:). Still my favourite ship. Head and shoulders above Getaway!Jan 21, 2014
- Hahaha! ;)
Well, lots of modern cruise ships have Azipod propulsion (diesel engines generating power for electric motors to drive the ship), while NCL Epic has traditional propulsion with fixed propellers. It's more simple, and obviously works perfectly.
You can take a look at this article - it explains a lot about engines and propulsion on cruise ships - I hope you'll like it ;)
