Norwegian Cruise Line has announced additional details of the food and drink offerings on its upcoming Prima Class vessels Norwegian Prima and Norwegian Viva.
The ships will boast nine new dining and beverage venues including Metropolitan Bar, the brand’s first sustainably-focused bar, which will offer zero-waste cocktails prepared with surplus ingredients, biodynamic wines and a fully sustainable spirits menu.
NCL also announced its first three-level atrium, the Penrose Atrium, the launch of its revamped main dining menu and enhancement to NCL culinary staples Le Bistro, Cagney’s Steakhouse and Food Republic.
Harry Sommer, NCL president and CEO said the line had been “innovators in the food and beverage space for more than three decades”, explaining: “Our latest food and beverage offerings take our Norwegian Prima food and beverage experience to another level, one that travels well beyond the guest expectation to provide elevated gastronomical experiences featuring sophisticated design, masterful mixology and cuisine that delivers full-throttle flavour.”
Guests can enjoy the new Mediterranean seafood specialty restaurant Palomar, and Hasuki, the brand’s take on the traditional hibachi-style Japanese cuisine. Contemporary sushi house Nama will offer sushi and sashimi masterpieces.
Previously revealed food and beverage venues on Norwegian Prima and Viva included NCL’s first food hall, featuring 11 eateries, Onda by Scarpetta, Los Lobos, The Local Bar & Grill, Vibe Beach Club, Waves Pool Bar, and the Prima Speedway Bar.
Norwegian Prima and Viva are the first two of six Prima Class ships, and they will both feature 35 dining and lounge options for guests.
In February NCL introduced an all-new tier system to its agent rewards programme, NCL Freestyle Rewards, to celebrate the scheme’s one year anniversary.
