Norwegian Cruise Line

Launched in 2019, Norwegian Encore delivers pulse-pounding thrills, world-class entertainment, and epic culinary experiences, to cruisers of all ages. Onboard, you’ll discover revolutionary amenities, such as an immersive VR escape room and a race track which takes drivers around hairpin curves suspended high over the ocean. You can visit the lost city of Atlantis in a high-tech game that combines laser tag with augmented reality. When it’s time to relax, a trip to the spa is probably in order. There, you’ll enjoy a multitude of luxurious treatments, including a session in the salt room or a dip in the Vitality pool.

Foodies will appreciate the exceptional portfolio of restaurants, including Onda by Scarpetta, where you’ll savor elegant, modern Italian cuisine, and Teppanyaki, an authentic Japanese hibachi restaurant where food doubles as entertainment. If it’s sweets you’re craving, stop in at The Bake Shop for a decadent French macaroon or indulge in a sundae at Coco’s.

After dark, enjoy the ship’s vibrant nightlife with microbrews and handcrafted cocktails at one of the many bars and lounges, or take in the Tony-award-winning Kinky Boots in the 800-seat theater. Whether you’re up at the crack of dawn or partying late into the night, you’ll always find entertainment and excitement waiting on the Norwegian Encore.

Onboard Experience

Fitness / Recreation

Norwegian Encore’s fully equipped fitness center makes it fun to stay in shape. In addition to state-of-the-art exercise equipment, the facility offers several exciting classes. You can burn off calories from those indulgent cruise-ship meals with RYDE cycling classes, find inner peace with ocean-view yoga, or try your hand at Pilates.

If you’re looking for excitement, get your pulse pounding with a lap around the ship’s racetrack, which is the largest at sea, or gear up for a high-tech game of Atlantis-inspired, augmented-reality laser tag. For wet-and-wild fun, put on your bathing suit and head to the aqua park, which features two exciting multistory water slides.

Entertainment

Sit back and enjoy world-class entertainment in the ship’s 800-seat theater with Norwegian Encore’s spectacular stage shows, including the Tony-award-winning Kinky Boots. You’ll also find live entertainment in the three-deck-high atrium, which features an oversized LED screen for movies. For more interactive fun, check out the Galaxy Pavilion, an immersive virtual reality escape room designed to thrill the entire family.

After dark, the night life blooms. Try out your salsa moves at the Sugarcane Mojito Bar, which features live Latin music, or sing along with a Beatles tribute band at the Cavern Club Lounge. If you want to laugh, don’t miss the ship’s Social Comedy and Night Club.

Spa

After a day of onshore exploration, there’s nothing better than unwinding with a treatment at Norwegian Encore’s luxurious Mandara Spa—and there are plenty to choose from. You can pamper yourself with a decadent hot stone massage or take a refreshing dip in the Vitality pool. The spa’s thermal suite offers several unique opportunities, including a salt room where you’ll experience this everyday crystal’s exceptional healing powers, and a snow room where you can revitalize with a blast of sub-zero temperatures. After your treatments, you can claim one of the spa’s ocean-view loungers and linger in the serene atmosphere.

Shopping

While each port of call brings unique and exciting shopping opportunities, souvenir selection is a breeze onboard at the Tradewinds tax &duty-free shops. The retail complex includes everything from fine watches to tobacco and alcohol, and features premium boutiques, such as Cartier, Salvatore Ferragamo, and Godiva, where you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a selection of delectable gourmet goodies. If you’re looking for something to remember your trip by, you can purchase a variety of merchandise featuring the Norwegian Cruise Line logo. Special occasion gifts are also available when you need a last-minute present for an impromptu onboard celebration.

Dining

Experience cuisine from around the world with Norwegian Encore’s mouthwatering selection of restaurants. From an elegant fine dining experience at The Haven to classic pub foods, such as fish n’ chips and chicken pot pie, at The Local, mealtimes onboard are all about variety. While many of the ship’s restaurants are included in the price of the cruise, for a little bit extra, you can enjoy an extravagant dining experience at a specialty venue, such as Onda by Scarpetta, which serves up modern Italian cuisine, or Los Lobos, which offers a taste of authentic Mexican with fresh, tableside guacamole.

Casino

Whether you’re looking to play a hand or two of Texas Hold’em or grab a seat at the dynamic slot machines, you’ll find all the bells and whistles of Vegas at Norwegian Encore’s award-winning casino. From poker to Blackjack, veteran gamblers can join a high-stakes table game of their choosing, while cruisers new to gambling can learn the ropes at designated beginners’ tables. The casino also includes a non-smoking area for cruisers who prefer to court Lady Luck in a cigarette-free environment.

Kids

Younger travelers enjoy their own cruising fun with Norwegian Encore’s exciting children’s programs. The ship’s Splash Academy offers opportunities for cruisers aged 17 and under to engage in creative play, thrilling sports competitions, and themed parties.

Teens enjoy their own parent-free zone at Entourage, a cozy retreat where they can watch movies, play video games, or dance the night away to the music of their generation. To cool off, kids can engage in refreshing water play at the interactive Kids’ Aqua Park, which features water cannons and super-fast tube slides for epic wet-and-wild fun.
