Today Norwegian Cruise lines has announced several new enhancements across its fleet which is part of the “Norwegian NEXT” program.
The new dining options offered will be available to NCL guests this summer and one of the most exciting new improvements announced is the Chocolate Night! It will be a dedicated evening to Chocolate once every voyage and will feature all sorts of different deserts including a delectable warm chocolate volcano and Nutella pot de crème. There will be seven signature chocolate dishes in each restaurant throughout the ship for one evening a cruise.
“Dining is an essential part of cruising and an experience that our guests look forward to,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s President and CEO. “We want to make sure that we are exceeding our guests’ expectations with culinary delights in our complimentary dining venues. These enhancements with such a wide variety of choice along with guest favourites and of course, chocolate, are bringing our complimentary dining venues to new heights.”
The other new dining enhancements are new menus in the ships main dining rooms with a more variety of choice and guests are able to make main dining reservations up to 90 days in advance. The new menus will vary due to the ships itinerary and will be changed each evening to offer different options.
“After a trial on Norwegian Breakaway, the main dining reservation option has been met with overwhelming support from our guests,” said Frank Weber, Vice President of Product Development for Norwegian Cruise Line. “The programme has been extremely successful because it allows guests to select their experiences ahead of time if they wish to, or they can choose to simply walk up to the restaurant they wish to dine at once on board. It’s another way to offer more freedom and flexibility to our guests.”
Many of the features in Norwegian NEXT program have come from Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway which have proved to be very successful. All the new enhancements which are part of NCL’s Norwegian NEXT program will begin rolling out throughout the fleet from July 31st. All cruise ships are expected to get the enhancements by early 2015.
