Epic Fail


Is it me or is the new Norwegian Cruise Line ship, Norwegian Epic, ugly? What possessed somebody to think this design would be appealing. I am surprise the French allowed this monstrosity to even come to the drawing board. I have worked on several french built ship, and the mechanics of them were pretty darn good, and the outside was too; what the heck happened with this?

I think NCL has had a bad rap, always being "the third", but I believe with this ship, they will out perform even Carnival, and their fleet of boxy, ugly ships. Carnival's and this new Epic looks like they were designed using legos. I hope its really nice inside, because I think they should have called her NCL Quasimodo instead.

This is pretty funny Martin.
I guess we know what the naval architects played with as kids!

There was a time when the boxy look was the fashion in automobiles and even in laptops. So in a way we should thank NCL for bringing back memories of that bygone era.

Why shouldn't a hack cruise line like NCL not repeat the hideous carbuncle they placed on the superstructure of the France / Norway on a purpose-built ship of their own?

It certainly isn't the best looking vessel I've ever seen, maybe it's more appealing from the inside?
