Let’s Take a Norwegian Encore Ship Tour
Onda by Scarpetta
Debuting on Norwegian Encore and replacing La Cucina, is the modern Italian restaurant, Onda by Scarpetta. Interestingly, the name “Onda” is Italian for “wave.” Not just new to the line but also its first time at sea, this popular restaurant is already a foodie favorite in New York City, London, Montauk, Miami and elsewhere. Tantalize your taste buds with pasta made fresh daily and such signature dishes as Scarpetta’s famous “Spaghetti, Tomato and Basil,” followed by a decadent Italian dessert and you’ll understand why it’s so highly lauded.
Go-Kart Race Track
Get your adrenaline-pumping as you charge to the finish line at the two-level go-kart race track — the largest at sea. Zoom around 1,100 feet of raceway in the salty breezes. Cutting-edge technology elevates adventure to a whole new level including jaw-dropping curves that extend up to 13 feet over the side of the ship. Additional fun for both racers and spectators is a covered viewing area in the center of the track where guests can provide passing go-karts with an additional turbo boost by tagging them with a laser beam.
Virtual Reality Pavilion
Step into a virtual reality world in the 10,000-square-foot Galaxy Pavilion complex and turn up the fun on nail-biting simulator rides and more. High-tech features coupled with interactive gaming provide an incredible VR experience. Challenge your wits as you solve puzzles in the escape room featuring remarkable holograms and special artifacts. This area is so exhilarating you’ll be looking for the replay button!
Laser-Tag at Sea
Spanning the entire back of the ship, Norwegian Encore boasts the largest laser-tag course at sea. Create unforgettable memories as you enjoy endless fun and laughter with the family while discovering buried secrets at the resurrected lost city of Atlantis. Laser-tag seamlessly merges with augmented reality as you shield yourself behind ruins and charge past the giant tentacles of a monstrous sea creature in order to complete your mission.
Dazzling entertainment is a hallmark of NCL. New on Norwegian Encore you’ll find “Kinky Boots,” the six time Tony Award® winning musical. Step back in time at The Cavern Club and truly enjoy a phenomenal cover band performing your favorite Beatles tunes in a setting reminiscent of THE place this incomparable group got their start. Another fabulous musical interlude is “The Choir of Man,” for high energy hit songs and dancing. Check out The Jungle, an English pub for tunes ranging from classic rock to folk songs and sing-alongs. Dubbed the “ultimate feel-good show, the percussion and choreography will keep you stomping your feet and coming back for more. Who would’ve thought Prohibition could be so much fun? Spend an evening with the madams of Madam Lulu’s New Orleans speakeasy. This adults-only extravaganza will keep you riveted with gorgeous girls, Prohibition Era specialty cocktails, music and more.
Overflowing with fun, Aqua Park has two multi-story slides along with a tandem waterslide aptly named, Aqua Racer. Whoosh over the side of the ship on the double looping Ocean Loops. Make a splash or simply lounge by the pool as you sip on your favorite frozen drink.
Experience the spectacular Norwegian Encore for yourself to enjoy all of this and much more. Sail to the Caribbean, Bermuda and other favorite destinations on a variety of itineraries. You’ll definitely want to hit “repeat” on this vacation. We’re confident many guests will come back time and again for an “encore” cruise on this fabulous ship.
