Norwegian Cruise Line are set to continue their track record of cruise ship innovation with the NEXT scheme – a host of renovations and transformations to the line’s vessels which will make the freestyle cruising experience even better for passengers.
The line is investing $250 million into the enhancements, producing innovations fleet wide which extend throughout every facet of the Norwegian Cruise Line experience.
Just take dining for example. Originally introduced in 2000, the freestyle dining concept offered cruisers the chance to enjoy flexible seating times and a brilliant variety of restaurants. Continuing with this this trend, there are new culinary experiences to enjoy across the fleet, including the famous Carlo’s Bake Shop, and all-new menus for favourites like O’Sheehan’s Neighbourhood Bar & Grill and Cagney Steak Houses.
The same goes for the exceptional range of Bars & Lounges. Passengers can now look forward to the Sugarcane Mojito Bar, at first exclusive to the Norwegian Getaway, becoming a nightlife staple across the entire Norwegian Cruise Line fleet. And, with the new collection of hand-crafted speciality cocktails making its way to the line’s bars, the Mojitos won’t be the only delectable cocktail you’ll be savouring.
The entertainment roster has also been expanded to include ground-breaking firsts and even more world-class performances. Expect all-new theme nights, deck parties and venues like the H2Glow Party, first launched on the Norwegian Breakaway, and now coming to every sheep in the fleet. The best shows currently on Broadway, the West End and Las Vegas will be a part of every custom line-up on every ship and itinerary.
To complement these brand-new features, Norwegian Cruise Line is innovating the way that cruisers use technology on-board their ships. Along with an improvement to the Wi-Fi across the fleet, passengers can also discover Touch Screens throughout each ship which can direct you to your favourite venues, help you make dinner reservations, and much, much more.
These innovations are set to push the envelope for mainstream cruising, a feat which Norwegian Cruise Line have already accomplished previously with their fleet. The next few years promise to bring even more new developments to fans of the line – especially with $250 million backing it up.
