Exclusive Sneak Peek at Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Encore!

Exclusive Sneak Peek at Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Encore!


In slightly more than six months,
Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest mega ship, Norwegian Encore, will be setting sail for the
Caribbean. Last fall, the Princess and I were invited to the keel laying at the
shipyard in Germany to get a first-hand look at this new ship. Being live at the
ceremony, we got a behind the scenes look of all the ship’s new features including
a live performance of the expected entertainment. If you are wondering what
this new ship will entail, you’re in luck! I’m DB from EatSleepCruise.com and
here’s our sneak peek of the brand new Norwegian Encore. How do you top the
largest racetrack at sea? Well of course, you make it bigger and add some new
elements. On Norwegian Encore, the race track will extend to almost 1150 feet.
This new course will feature 10 turns including four points that extend up to
13 feet over the side of the ship. There will also be a covered viewing area where
bystanders can watch the race. In addition, the crowd can provide drivers
with some extra speed using a laser system to tag go karts with a temporary
speed boost. Norwegian Encore will offer one of the most interactive and
technologically advanced spaces at sea the Galaxy Pavilion.
The pavilion first debuted on Norwegian Joy, and the cruise line is
re-envisioning this venue for Norwegian Encore. This family-friendly space will
feature a variety of virtual reality experiences. Among the known attractions
are a driving simulator, two dark ride simulators, and a virtual reality maze.
With all the new features, this indoor venue is sure to be popular with
travelers of all ages. Get ready to pull up a pair of bright red boots.
Norwegian Encore will feature the Tony award-winning musical Kinky Boots. This
production will feature original music from Grammy winner Cyndi Lauper and will
be a 90-minute show in the main theater. Also featured in the main theater will be
Choir of Man. This West End show recently debuted on Norwegian Escape and has been
one of the best received shows on any Norwegian Cruise Line ship. Both of these
entertainment productions are a must see when
traveling on this innovative mega ship. Along with these new productions, the
ship will also feature Happy Hour Prohibition – the Musical which debuted on Norwegian Bliss. This interactive show will transport you to 1919 on the eve of
Prohibition. There will also be the popular Cavern Club with a Beatles cover
band with regular shows featuring music from the distinct periods of this Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame band. One of the most popular activities on Norwegian Bliss
is the laser tag. So for Norwegian Encore, the cruise line
has taken this concept and enhanced it with digital technology. On Norwegian
Encore, you’ll be thrust into the lost city of Atlantis in this outdoor arena
that will include augmented reality as part of each game. Players will wear
virtual reality headsets so along with avoiding being targeted by opponents,
cruisers will also have to be wary of digital obstacles which makes the game
unlike anything else at sea. Along with all these new features, Norwegian Encore
will also be home to many of the popular venues and amenities found on other
Norwegian Cruise Line ships. These include the Waterfront outdoor promenade
which is full of shops, bars, and restaurants. Offering indoor and al fresco
dining, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a Caribbean sunset with a drink in your
hand. Norwegian Encore will also have the Observation Lounge on deck 15.
This massive space in the front of the ship has floor-to-ceiling windows, a bar,
and regular entertainment. With trendy yet comfortable seating, the Observation
Lounge is an ideal place to escape the sun if you want to read, relax, and still
be able to gaze at the scenery surrounding the ship. Norwegian Encore
will also have the line’s Haven, a ship within a ship which has luxurious suites
and its own private Sun Deck, lounge, and restaurant which is exclusive to guests
staying in this secluded area. Like all Norwegian Cruise Line ships, Norwegian
Encore will offer free style dining with over a dozen complimentary and upcharge
dining venues. With the program, cruisers choose when and where they eat
with no assigned seating arrangements or predetermined dining
times. On Norwegian Encore, you have several dining options including
Cagney’s Steakhouse, the Italian La Cucina, the French upscale Le Bistro
restaurant, as well as newer choices like the Q Texas Smokehouse or the Mexican
inspired Los Lobos. Of course, Norwegian Encore will feature other entertainment
and dining venues as well as a few surprises that have yet to been released.
I’m DB from EatSleepCruise.com, and this was our sneak peak of Norwegian
Encore. Are you excited for this new vessel? Let us know in the comments below
if you plan on sailing on Norwegian Cruise Line’s newest mega ship when it
debuts later this year. If you enjoyed this video, we’d really appreciate it if

    Oh thats so Great and Exciting bla bla, All these Cruise Ship companies continue to bill more & more "Mega Ships"which just tells you that they are making more & more "Mega Profits" while many cruise ship workers continue to work for small wages.
    How come they never speak about increases in "Cruise Ship Workers Salaries"…..
    They are the HR that makes everything happen…

    The ship looks great,,,,,,, However – lately people have begun complaining about the prices. they are increasing – soon it will be priced out of the market – whose running this – College Interns?" the bulk of your travelers re on a budget of $125 a day….. current prices reflect $200 a day….? before you bank on "Well it's the industry..?" it's also the same industry who stops buying……,,,,,, "Well – it's Sales"
    There are multiple solo travelers getting away today than families. Why should a solo Guest get stuck paying higher fees for a room !! you need to install more solo cabins – smaller rooms – that are not apart of the solo lounge. There are more divorced and singles than are as a couple today. 2019 – need to get with the times,,, !!!
    Stop nickel and diming your customers,,, the solution is to build bigger – wider and longer ships to accommodate the guest – NCL will do better in the volume of it's sales. take care of your guest who travels more than ten cruises – begin calling them back to see what they want to do – what is their budget,, to get both the Sail – from the sale.. Learn what it is to retain the customer for long term value.

    What a complete waste of the outer top deck. Cannot believe the idea to take the best part of the ship – the outdoor top area, and turn it into a race track, that will be used only part of the day it truly the stupidest idea I have seen in many year. No wonder Norwegian cruises is practically giving away their rooms.
