Fine Dining and Entertainment On-board Norwegian Escape

January 22, 2015

For those who have been waiting to hear more about Norwegian Cruise Line’s Escape vessel, you’ll be pleased to find that the wait is over, as the line has recently unveiled plans for its onboard dining and entertainment.

Norwegian Escape, that’s set to launch this coming October, will be the largest ever ship to join Norwegian’s fleet and will feature two Broadway shows, a brewhouse and a wine bar.

If you’re a fan of classic 80s films, such as Weird Science and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, you’re bound to love Escape’s onboard supper club cabaret, which will deliver a medley of songs from the soundtracks of director John Hughes.

And that’s not all, because you’ll have the chance to watch the Broadway musical After Midnight, based on songs from jazz legend Duke Ellington, as well as Million Dollar Quartet, which brings together a compilation of tunes from the likes of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins.

Why not go for a refreshing drink inside Escape’s District Brewhouse? Delivered in partnership with Miami’s Wynwood Brewing Company, you’ll be able to choose from 50 different bottled beers, including a bespoke Norwegian Escape ale.

Or if you’re more of a wine connoisseur, The Cellars is Norwegian Escape’s luxury wine bar that boasts 35 different varieties of grape.

If you’re feeling peckish, you can make your way to Food Republic, brought to you by Florida’s Pubbelly Restaurant Group. Here you can sample delicious small plates of around-the-world cuisine.

Escape has also collaborated with American chef Jose Garces to deliver a Cuban/Spanish restaurant called Bayamo and a tapas bar named Pincho. If you choose to dine at Bayamo, you’ll have the option to eat in the outdoor dining space overlooking the beautiful seas.

Speaking to TTG Digital about Norwegian’s culinary partnerships, Kevin Bubolz – director of business planning and marketing for Europe – said: “Freestyle cruising is about real choice between high quality alternatives. These are real concepts and real personalities.”

Norwegian Escape is currently being constructed in Hamburg and will make its way to Southampton’s port on October 25th, where passengers will be able to embark on its very first sailing from October 28th.
