Norwegian Cruise Line is introducing à la carte dining in many of their specialty restaurants that will give passengers the freedom and flexibility to choose how many courses they would enjoy during their meal.
This new concept will roll out with the introduction of their largest ship to date, Norwegian Escape, when the ship makes its debut in October. The ship will have 11 complimentary dining options and the following specialty restaurants will be on an à la carte basis: Cagney’s Steakhouse, Le Bistro, La Cucina, and Bayamo (by award winning chef Jose Garces).
The signature specialty restaurants found on Norwegian Escape will feature enhanced menus that will not only have new items, but will also include their favorite dishes. Courses will come on a per item basis, similar to land based restaurants.
At Cagney’s Steakhouse, starters will range from $4.99 to $7.95 and main courses from $17.99 to $29.99. At Le Bistro, new main courses will start at $15.99. At Norwegian’s Italian restaurant La Cucina, traditional courses will start at $12.99.
Specialty restaurants not affected by these changes will be Teppanyaki and Moderno Churrascaria, they will remain at $29.95 and $19.95 per person.
Passengers who purchase Norwegian’s Specialty Dining Package can dine at Cagney’s, Le Bistro, and La Cucina with no extra charges. Bayamo will have an additional $15 charge.
These changes will go into affect on Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway on October 3, with the addition of Ocean Blue going à la carte.
Beginning on January 1, 2016, the entire fleet will begin offering the new à la carte dining.
The Illusionarium and Cirque Dreams and Dinner will remain at a cover charge.
