NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINE ANNOUNCES NEW FACE OF ENTERTAINMENT
AT SEA WITH NORWEGIAN EPIC REVEAL IN NEW YORK CITY
MIAMI – May 22, 2009 – On Wednesday, May 20, Norwegian Cruise Line unveiled the
new face of entertainment which will be on board Norwegian Epic at an exciting reveal
event in New York City. The event, attended by 300 travel partners and media, began
with a presentation at trendy Butter Restaurant where the Blue Man Group crashed the
event and ushered guests across the street to their Astor Place Theater where a 25-
minute performance ensued with Norwegian’s CEO Kevin Sheehan headlining one of
the group’s interactive acts. The Blue Man Group will present eight performances in the
685-seat Epic Theater over the course of Norwegian Epic’s seven-day cruises.
Norwegian also announced the first “big top” at sea with Cirque Dreams® and
Dinner performing in the 265-seat theater-in-the-round Spiegel Tent. At the event, famed
producer/director Neil Goldberg described what Norwegian Epic guests will see as a one
of a kind interactive dinner theater where performances will be staged throughout the
meal by troupe members who will also serve dinner plates and fill water glasses from the
air. During this two-hour show, guests will marvel in amazement and become part of a
celebration of spectacle and fantasy. The entire experience will be unlike anything else
