These Are the Top Things to Know about The Norwegian Edge™
Extensive Ship Refurbishment
The refurbishment program began in October 2015 with a full refresh of Norwegian Epic that included the debut of brand new venues like The Cavern Club; complete restaurant makeovers in La Cucina and a new look for Cagney’s, Le Bistro, Modemo Churrascaria, The Manhattan Room and the Garden Cafe, now with a sleek and crisp white palette; and refreshed decor, furniture and flooring in many public spaces, including The Haven Courtyard, Lounge and Restaurant, for a more modem and clean design.
According to Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line president and chief operating officer, “Norwegian has a long history of investing in its fleet to offer guests the latest and greatest innovations, but the investment to raise our ships to The Norwegian Edge™ standard of excellence takes it to new levels.”
The extensive ship revitalization program at the heart of The Norwegian Edge™ will completely transform many spaces on board nine of the ships to reflect the premium look and feel of Norwegian’s newest and most spectacular ships. As the cruise line with the youngest fleet in North America, the extensive enhancement program will offer much more than traditional décor updates – Norwegian ships will essentially be new vessels.
As the innovator of freedom and flexibility at sea with no set dining times and up to 28 dining options per vessel, Norwegian Cruise Line understands that dining is central to guests’ vacation experience. Therefore, the line is continuing to expand investment in the onboard culinary program, to create exceptional experiences, from gourmet meals to superb service.
New for 2016, all ships in Norwegian’s fleet now offer upgraded complimentary dining room menus and the addition of optional a la carte priced items in the main dining rooms, such as grilled lobster tails and surf and turf entrees, providing guests additional choices and tastes to create their ultimate dining experience.
The new complimentary dining menus offer an increased variety – featuring appetizers, soups and salads, featured entrées, and desserts – and have been carefully developed by Norwegian’s culinary team with a focus on balancing popular traditional dishes like prime rib, chateaubriand, rack of lamb and escargot with current dining trends and heightened guest expectations.
On January 31, Norwegian expanded their new specialty dining menus that debuted on the Norwegian Escape across the fleet. The introduction of these new enhanced menus at the cruise line’s signature specialty restaurants – Cagney’s Steakhouse, Le Bistro and La Cucina – along with new offerings at Modemo Churrascaria and Teppanyaki, will further elevate guests dining experience with more options new flavors.
