Norwegian Encore

By combining a contemporary look with comfortable spaces and a relaxed and friendly ambiance, Norwegian Encore feels like a home away from home for all of her 3,998 potential passengers. The ship offers the perfect balance of dining, action-packed activities and beautiful bars and restaurants to make sure that guests of all ages can enjoy taking to the sea on the cruise of their dreams.

Norwegian Cruise Line offer a great array of dining opportunities on their ships, and Norwegian Encore is certainly no exception. With a mix of casual main restaurant and casual options and superb speciality restaurants, all palettes are perfectly catered for. Of course, Norwegian’s most popular restaurants make an appearance onboard, such as The Local and its tasty pub classics, while there is also the brand new addition of Onda Scarpetta, serving up tantalizingly good Italian cuisine. Enhance your mealtimes even more by taking a seat on The Waterfront, an oceanfront promenade that stretches a quarter of a mile around the ship, allowing guests to enjoy the delights of restaurants such as Ocean Blue and Cagney’s Steakhouse while simultaneously marvelling at the sea views as Norwegian Encore cruises forward.

Guests on Norwegian Encore are spoilt for choice when it comes to how to spend their time onboard. With some world-class entertainment and wonderful bars and lounges, singles, couples and families will all find plenty to keep them occupied from morning to evening.

A must-do while onboard Norwegian is to experience some of the most modern technology that a cruise ship has to offer. Virtual reality plays a key role in the ship’s entertainment, so why not test it out with a game of laser tag at the resurrected Lost City of Atlantis or the thrilling VR experiences and simulator rides at Galaxy Pavilion. Your time on the ship doesn’t have to be action packed though, as the main pool offers a peaceful place to top up your tan and dip your toes in the water. On the other hand, if you do find yourself getting a little restless, Norwegian Encore’s Aqua Park is bound to get that adrenaline pumping once more.

For the younger cruisers onboard, Norwegian Encore has some carefully thought out spaces to make their experience memorable. Guppies is for any babies onboard, who can enjoy sensory activities and toy time with their parents, while slightly older travellers can enjoy the sports competitions and creative play at Splash Academy. Parents will be pleased to learn that on port days, a supervised Group Sitting means that they can finally go for that romantic meal that they’ve been talking about for years too- and where better than in Barcelona or New York! Any teens on board will be relieved to find out that there is an area on the ship just for them. Kitted out with sofas, video games and big screens, this is the perfect way to escape the adults and spend some time chilling with others their age.

Luckily for guests, the fun doesn’t have to come to an end once the sun has gone down, as the lively array of entertainment will keep you occupied into the early hours.


You may be surprised to hear that even out at sea, you can enjoy three award-winning live performances: Kinky Boots, The Choir of Man and Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical. Guests can also enjoy a stand-up comedy show on Norwegian Encore, after which the venue turns into a night club complete with live DJ.

Live Music

The world-renowned Cavern Club takes to the seas on Norwegian Encore where a live cover band performs all your favourite Beatles greatest hits. Grab a drink and have a sing-a-long!


Despite the amazing entertainment onboard, some guests may prefer to spend their evening soaking up the ambiance at one of the ship’s bars making new friends, and there’s certainly one for every occasion. For a venue exclusively for adults, Vibe Beach Club is the place to be, where the island vibe transports you straight to the beach. Alternatively, you could sit back and enjoy sampling some of the best wines from around the world at The Cellars.
