La Cucina: Buonasera! Enjoy the finest ingredients at Norwegian's vibrant Italian ristorante. Spark a conversation amongst friends over a great bottle of wine and freshly baked artisan farm bread.

Le Bistro: Ornate French restaurant inspired by the colors, planting and artwork of the Pacific Islands. This restaurant is available for an additional cost.

Moderno Churrascaria: If you’re looking for a unique experience, Norwegian's authentic Brazilian steakhouse is a must.

Teppenyaki's chilled, sake-infused Wasabi Cocktail will have you flipping too. This restaurant is available for an additional cost.
