Taste Restaurant

Cruising and dining go hand in hand. Gone are the days of having early or late dining everyday in the same dining room. Today's cruise experience offers so much more on just about every cruise line worldwide.

One of the leaders in revolutionizing the dining experience is Norwegian Cruise Line. In 2000, NCL was the first to offer "Freestyle Dining" and other cruise lines soon followed with their own variations. All of Norwegian Cruise Line's ships offer a myriad of options ranging from casual dining to fine gourmet dining. Their newest ship, the Norwegian Epic, boasts 21 dining options – 11 of which are offered at no additional charge.


Here are just a few reasons why the Norwegian Cruise Line dining experience enhances your cruise experience.

Great Choices

The restaurants range from casual to elegant. You can dine at venues including endless buffets, an Italian Trattoria, Asian cuisine and Sushi, fresh grill restaurants, and pizza. Dine in a fine American steakhouse, a French gourmet Bistro, a Hibatchi grill restaurant or dance the night away in a supper club. There's that and so much more.

Dine on Your Own Schedule

With NCL's Freestyle dining you can eat where you want and when you want. If your day was action packed in a port and you just want to grab a quick bite you can do that. Feel like getting dressed up and having a night on the town? You can do that too. With Freestyle dining the choice is yours.

Kid Friendly

Cruising with the family is a great experience and all of the dining options make it even easier. Let the kids be entertained at a Hibatchi dinner, enjoy Nickelodeon character breakfasts or choose from any of the dining options offered. The great thing about it is that you can eat when you want so early dining is not a problem.

From kids to grandparents – and everyone in between – there’s a huge menu sure to satisfy any foodie’s craving or any child’s desire for chicken fingers or pizza! Like the rest of the NCL experience, the options are endless.
