At From The Deck Chair, we usually try to showcase news and interesting facts from a wide variety of cruise lines.  Norwegian Cruise Line, however, is making that increasingly difficult: it seems as if in the past few months, there’s been a slew of NCL-related information, and with good reason: the company is ramping up for the launch of Norwegian Epic, due to be delivered to the line in June, 2010.

Yesterday, Norwegian Epic passed another milestone with the appointment of her Captains and Hotel Directors.

Captain Trygve Vorren, a familiar face to those who have sailed NCL frequently, will have the honor of being Epic‘s first master.  Hailing from Norway, Captain Vorren has been with Norwegian Cruise Line since 1980, when he joined as First Officer on the SS Norway.   His relief will be Captain Hakan Svedung, who has spent thirty-five years at sea, including three with NCL and a further twelve with Star Cruises

In the position of Hotel Director will be Klaus Lugmaier, with Sean Wurmhoeinger as his relief.  Lugmaier had the distinction of, at age 26, becoming one of the industry’s youngest Hotel Directors – a demanding position at any age.  Relief Wurmhoeinger has been with NCL since 2002, and has served on almost the entire fleet during that time.

It would seem that Norwegian’s largest ship is in good hands.
