Epic judged in first sea trials

//Epic judged in first sea trials

epictrial.jpgIt’s not the best picture in the world, but the weather in France today, when Norwegian Epic left the shipyard for its first sea trials, was about as bright as Ashley Cole. The 153,000-ton ship is being put through its paces with about 300 workers from STX Europe and 30 staff from Norwegian Cruise Lines on board. Captain Trygve Vorrenon will be on the bridge as the giant cruise ship is taken up to full speed, brought to crash stops and made to make sharp turns – all to make sure it will handle comfortably when it takes on its first passengers in June. If the weather in the Bay of Biscay clears up over the weekend, I hope to have some clearer images soon.
