Norwegians Next

Now we're making the youngest fleet at sea* even better by investing over $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.

From rolling out our most popular restaurants & bars and newly crafted menus created by expert chefs to innovative and customized entertainment for every ship, we promise this next wave of exciting enhancements and new guest experiences will be nothing short of spectacular. Plus, we're making extensive technology upgrades, revitalizing 8 ships during dry docks and investing in our environmental program and brand new destination experiences.

Our passion for innovation is the driving force behind everything we do – with a vision of making your best vacation ever even better.


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 more. Get ready for experiences of gastronomic proportions.

We're crafting new menus and adding more variety and choices than ever before in our main dining rooms and Garden Cafe. Our expert chefs from all over the world are cooking with only the freshest and finest ingredients. 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.

Find some of your favorite restaurants fleetwide including Moderno Churrascaria. 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, all of our ships now feature decadent creations in The Bake Shop.

Featuring a sleeker design along with wine pairing recommendations and anecdotal culinary history, the new menus vary by ship and change each evening of the sailing displaying several selections – starters, classic dishes, main courses, chef's signature dish and dessert – and offer an increased variety with up to 12 starters and up to 15 entrees per evening.

Chocoholic Night is an amazingly delicious night for our guests who are chocolate lovers. Our Main Dining Rooms feature an all-chocolate dessert menu, while the Garden Café and our Specialty Restaurants will offer special chocolate desserts.

Norwegian is making it easier than ever for guests to further customize their vacation experience by offering the ability to make reservations for main dining rooms up to 90 days prior to their cruise date. So get the gang together and pick a different restaurant every night of your cruise if you'd like, reserve your spot and go! We'll handle all the details, so all you have to worry about is making the most of your time together.


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, a guest favorite introduced on Norwegian Getaway, will be rolling out to some of our ships for even more guests to enjoy.

We're not just raising the bar. We're reinventing it. All thanks to an exclusive partnership with award-winning mixologist Gabriel Orta of Miami-based Bar Lab Cocktails. Consulting on all cocktail menus, adding his "drinkspertise" to our entire fleet, creating avant-garde concoctions. Orta is doing all of that and then some. Guests will certainly have a whole lot to look forward to (and sip on) year-round.


Norwegian's legacy of revolutionizing entertainment continues with even more groundbreaking firsts. 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.

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.

Our new 45,000 square foot state-of-the-art rehearsal facility, Norwegian Creative Studios, 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.


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.

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.

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.
