Aboard the Epic you can now choose from traditional fine dining to endless buffets complete with custom order action stations. Many dining options are included in the cruise fare, or for something a little special why not access a world of possibilities such as the Brazilian Steakhouse, Shanghai Chinese Restaurant or the French Gourmet options by paying a small cover charge? Altogether there are 23 different dining options onboard. There are also some dining areas of Norwegian Epic that are reserved for guests staying in Suite and Villa accommodation. This includes the Epic Club and Courtyard Grill, beautifully decorated with food to match.
