i have brocken my camera so no new photos before may. :(

Perhaps Gilbert, Christian or Bruno will do some this weekend when she'll be transfered to forme-écluse Joubert for repairs.

Stéphane - any new photos? Apparently she has had her hull art painted on now.

We have never cruised on a brand new ship either ...
Looking forward to your shots of her in New York - and taking my own in Miami (crossing lots of fingers she will be delivered on time ...)

We'll be on the July 24 cruise as well! (Not back to back though). This will be our first cruise on a brand new ship (Epic's first trip to Western Carib) and can't help but wonder if EPIC's crew will have everything running smoothly by then. It should be interesting! I will photograph her as she arrives in New York in June, and of course post the shots.

She is due to be delivered by June 15, transatlantic voyage to start on June 24 and christening I believe planned to be in New York on July 2.
First scheduled weekly cruise out of her initial home-port of Miami to be on July 10.
(We are booked on July 24 for a back-to-back cruise :-D )

Regards from Australia

She will be moved this night if wind allow...
she needs to be moved on Forme Joubert to be finish:
- cleaning and painting of the hull under sea level before next trials at the end of april
- changing 3 front transversal motors

She must be delivered on June.

Best regards from France

You're welcome ;-)

How come is she being moved to another place in the harbor?
- Because of capacity issues, or because of practical reasons in order to finish her?
Do You know when she is gonna be delivered and Christened, and where the ceremony will take place?!

I guess that was a lot of questions, but I hope it's okay :-)
I sure will look forward to see some other pictures of her, and once again, thanks for posting.

Kind regards,
Stéphane Nigeon on Mar 26, 2010 16:40 (8 years ago)
Thank you for your comment :)

Oh yes she's huge!
Next week she must go to another place in the harbour and pictures wiil probably be more impressive.

Søren Rasmussen on Mar 25, 2010 22:11 (8 years ago)
Well, I don't know whether I like this desgin or not... I don't think very well of her 'hat', but no matter what, this is a great picture!
And one thing is for sure - she is HUGE!

Thanks for posting, and kind regards,
