NORWEGIAN NEXT

 

Now we’re making the youngest fleet at sea* even better by investing more than $250 million in Norwegian NEXT – new enhancements, experiences and transformations. We’re elevating guest experiences fleetwide and beyond – building on the success of our two newest ships Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway

 

 

 

DINING

 

Grilled Shrimp

 

Always the innovator, we reimagined dining with the introduction of Freestyle Cruising in 2000 – and continue our mission of offering fantastic culinary experiences. The NEXT wave of Freestyle Dining is here with new restaurants, redesigned menus, celebrity partnerships and much more. Plus, you can now pre-book both complimentary and specialty dining 90 days prior to sailing or 100 days prior if booked in The Haven.

 

 

Complimentary Dining 

We’re crafting new menus and adding more variety and choices than ever before in our main dining rooms and Garden Cafe. New offerings balance popular traditional dishes like prime rib, chateaubriand, rack of lamb and escargot with new offerings like grouper, barramundi, sushi and crab dishes. Contemporary dishes include mojito shrimp ceviche, seared Atlantic scallops with fennel puree, and braised beef short ribs with Cajun shrimp. Plus, with our expansion plans you’ll soon be able to dine at our wildly popular complimentary restaurant O’Sheehan’s Neighborhood Bar & Grill throughout our fleet.

 

Specialty Dining

Find your own favorite restaurants from Moderno Churrascaria to Teppanyaki. 

Did you know Norwegian is the only cruise line offering Certified Angus Beef®, exclusively in all Cagney’s Steakhouses? 

 

And for those with a sweet tooth, almost all of our ships now feature the sweet creations of Carlo’s Bake Shop by Master Baker Buddy Valastro, star of the popular TLC television series Cake Boss.

 

 

BARS & LOUNGES 

 

Sugarcane Mojito Bar

 

Just as you would expect from Norwegian, we’re shaking things up – this time across our fleet with our bars and lounges.

  

Sugarcane Mojito Bar  

Freshly muddled just the way you like, enjoy a refreshing mojito with friends – day or night. Serving mojitos and other rum-based cocktails, this island-themed bar features indoor and outdoor seating along The Waterfront, our oceanfront promenade.

  

Michael Mondavi Family 

With our exclusive partnership with the Michael Mondavi Family, sip specially selected wines from our refined wine lists fleetwide and look forward to new and immersive wine experiences and events soon to be announced.

 

Spirited Staff 

Working with Bar Lab Cocktails and their incredible mixologists, we’ve tapped into the hottest, hand-crafted cocktail bar in Miami to create unique specialty cocktails, which you can only enjoy on Norwegian. Plus, we’re certifying our bartenders across our fleet in Diageo’s World Class training program and educating our Wine Stewards and Restaurant Managers fleetwide with sommelier training by Court of Master Sommeliers, offering an even more knowledgeable staff.

 

 

ENTERTAINMENT

 

Nickelodeon Slime Time Live

 

From world-class partnerships to award-winning, customized shows performing in specially designed venues, you won’t believe your eyes or even your ears as to what’s coming NEXT. 

 

Norwegian Creative Studios 

Our new 45,000-square-foot state-of-the-art rehearsal facility, Norwegian Creative Studios, in Tampa, Florida is where the brightest creative and design talents from around the world will develop new innovative shows and produce some of the best shows currently on Broadway, London’s West End and Las Vegas. From soaring acrobats in “Elements,” to our 15-foot revolving showgirl staircase unit in “Paradis” to rocking out with the full rock band in “Rock of Ages,” our award-winning entertainment will be customized for every ship and itinerary – with line-ups that will constantly stay fresh.

 

Nickelodeon 

We’re expanding our exclusive Nickelodeon entertainment with new activities, themed dinners in our buffet, Nickelodeon-inspired menu items and additional meet and greets, allowing more interaction with your favorite characters. And what’s Nickelodeon without Slime? Guests on many of our ships will soon have the opportunity to get slimed on our private island Great Stirrup Cay as part of our expanded Nickelodeon beach activities. Plus, we’re adding more Nickelodeon experiences in Splash Academy, our complimentary youth program for kids. Now your family can soak up even more of SpongeBob and friends throughout your vacation on our five ships featuring Nickelodeon.

 

Onboard Experiences 

New game shows. New theme nights. New events and deck parties including the rollout of H2Glow Party, our newest and hottest deck party under the stars, which first launched on Norwegian Breakaway. We’re re-imagining cruise ship entertainment with brand new innovative programs and experiences on every ship.

 

 

 

TECHNOLOGY

 

iConcierge Mobile App

 

Norwegian’s commitment to creating unparalleled experiences keeps our focus on advanced technologies and innovations to bring more freedom and flexibility to our guests. From pre-cruise planning, touch-screen digital signage on board, enhanced

Wi-Fi throughout our ships and our industry-first iConcierge app, it will be easier than ever to design your vacation your way and stay connected with your friends and family along the way.

 

 

Wifi 

We’re enhancing Wi-Fi across our fleet. Now you’ll be able to find virtually continuous hotspots on our ships from bow to stern. 

 

iConcierge Mobile App 

Whether you’re connecting with guests on board or to all the activities your ship has to offer, there’s an app for that. iConcierge is the first app of its kind. And Norwegian is the first cruise line to develop and roll it out fleetwide. We’re also enhancing our Cruise Norwegian app to make your pre-cruise planning experience even better and more seamlessly connected to your cruise vacation.

 

Interactive Touch Screens 

Touch screens allow you to find your favorite places on board, view activity schedules, make dinner and show reservations and more. We’re pushing out interactive digital signage fleetwide so you can easily navigate around all of our ships.

 

Cruise Coach 

Coming soon, our newly developed, easy to use, interactive booking engine – Cruise Coach – will help Norwegian guests discover and plan the right cruise vacation. Select what’s most important to you or your group and Cruise Coach will offer some fantastic recommendations, so you can make the most of your next Norwegian cruise.

 

 

ENVIRONMENTAL

 

Sea Turtle in the Bahamas

 

We understand that protecting our oceans is vitally important. Our commitment to the preservation of our oceans and environmental stewardship has made Environmental Protection one of our core company values. 

 

Eco-Smart Cruising 

To reduce fuel emissions – and our environmental footprint – we’re installing exhaust gas scrubbers on seven ships. That’s more than half our fleet!

 

Fuel Efficiency 

We’re coating our underwater hulls with high performance paint to reduce friction to the water, making our ships more fuel-efficient.

 

 

DESTINATION EXPERIENCES

 

Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas

 

Whether you’re soaking up the sun on Great Stirrup Cay or discovering the nature and culture on Harvest Caye, we’re investing in developing two incredible island destinations. 

 

Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas 

More beaches. More activities. More cabanas. We’re enhancing our eco-fun paradise in the Bahamas with more of what our guests love. Did we mention the new Bacardi and Patron bars?

  

Harvest Caye, Belize 

Coming Fall 2015, our newest eco-friendly cruise destination in southern Belize will be transformed into a 75-acre experience featuring a floating pier, island village, marina, tours to the mainland, a lagoon for water sports and a relaxing beach for guests to discover.

 

 

 

*Among major North American cruise brands.
