Zero-waste cocktails are on the menu on Norwegian Prima and Viva

Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled new food and drink options on its Prima class ships.

Norwegian Prima (pictured, launching June 2023) and Norwegian Viva (launching August 2022), the first of six vessels in the new class, will feature nine new restaurants and bars, including Metropolitan Bar, the brand’s first ‘sustainably-focused’ bar offering zero-waste cocktails prepared with surplus ingredients.

Other new options include Mediterranean seafood speciality restaurant Palomar, the Japanese ‘hibachi-style’ Hasuki and sushi house Nama.

Enhancements will also be made to the line’s culinary staples Le Bistro, Cagney’s Steakhouse, Food Republic and the Observation Lounge.

Both ships will feature a total of 35 dining and lounge options

NCL’s first three-storey, glass-walled Penrose Atrium will be one of the focal points on Norwegian Prima and Viva.

President and chief executive Harry Sommer said: “We’ve been innovators in the food and beverage space for more than three decades, becoming the first cruise line to offer speciality dining and the first to introduce our ‘Freestyle Cruising’ concept that allows our guests to vacation their way by giving them the choice to decide when and where they dine.

“Our latest food and beverage offerings take our Norwegian Prima food and beverage experience to another level, one that travels well beyond the guest expectation to provide elevated gastronomical experiences featuring sophisticated design, masterful mixology and cuisine that delivers full-throttle flavour.”
