It's the 34th year for the event, and, according to the press release, ". . . includes a national, one-hour, live entertainment broadcast on NBC-TV beginning at 9 p.m. and takes place on board Norwegian Epic where invited guests will have a front row view of the fireworks display."

Those lucky guests should have a spectacular view of the fireworks celebrating our nation's birthday from the Norwegian Epic's pool deck and outer decks.  NCL says their hosting of the Macy's fireworks display will serve as the finale of inaugural festivities for their brand new ship.
The Inaugural Sailing of the Norwegian Epic departs Southampton on June 24.  She'll arrive in Manhattan  July 1.  

BONUS -  Macy's and NCL will be giving away a cruise for four on the Epic.  Look for more details in June.  They'll be published at
