Ice bar on Norwegian Epic

I am aware that it is a $20 charge which included 2 vodka's but can anybody advise what it is like and is it worth it?

We were in a ice bar in Stockholm, Sweden on a shore excursion about 13 months ago. Is that the same kind of Ice Bar they have on a ship now? It was solid ice, seats, bar, tables, even the glasses were solid ice with a hole drilled in them for the drink. Wouldn't surprise me if it is, after all they are putting ice rinks, climbing walls, etc on some ships now.

I know I responded to this earlier. Another one lost in the miasma I guess.

anyway, friends we were with on the Breakaway went and said it wasn't worth the effort. You only stay about a half hour. We've been on the Breakaway twice and have yet to go into the Ice Bar. Try the sushi place instead. It's excellent.

If I were in Canada, Sweden, or a land-based location I think going to an ice bar would be worth it. From what a family member shared with me about their personal experience on NCL, it was not worth the surcharge. This is a "cutesy" gimmick by the cruise lines to create and maintain another revenue stream. No regrets at having tried it ONCE, but will not do it again.
