Thai and plant-based eateries added to new NCL ship

The first Thai specialty restaurant on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship is one of three new options being introduced on Norwegian Aqua.

The brand’s first dedicated restaurant offering a full plant-based menu will also feature together with an upscale wine bar.

Norwegian Aqua is due to enter service next April in the Caribbean from Port Canaveral in Florida as NCL’s latest Prima Plus class ship.  

Thai restaurant Sukhothai (pictured) will join Planterie and the Swirl Wine Bar as new additions. 

One of the ship’s main complimentary dining rooms, the Commodore Room, will feature a new maritime design.

The Sail & Sustain cocktail bar is relocating from mid-ship to the aft of deck seven, with a grand piano and a small entertainment space.

A whiskey bar will relocate to deck six near the Swirl Wine Bar, while Belvedere Bar will move to deck eight at the heart of the atrium.

Other venues will be expanded to handle more passengers, including  pub-style Local Bar & Grill, Japanese hibachi outlet Hasuki, and Cagney’s steakhouse.

NCL president David Herrera said: “Discovering new flavours and dining experiences is such a memorable part of any vacation, especially when you share it with those who matter most to you. 

“Expanding on our award-winning food and beverage programme, we’re looking forward to bringing new concepts to life aboard Norwegian Aqua, while continuing to deliver on the variety of available offerings and value that NCL delivers.”
