Dining

Liberty

Main Dining

Liberty: Dining at the Liberty is guaranteed to be a traditional experience as you step back into America's Colonial days. The decor features paintings of the Founding Fathers and important moments in American History.

Skyline: Inspired by the architecture and skyscrapers of 1930's Manhattan, this Art Deco style restaurant offers a delicious, traditional dining experience.

Cagney's Steakhouse

Specialty Dining

Cagney's Steakhouse: Steak is the standard at our American-style steakhouse. Sip your favorite cocktail as you select from choice cuts of Certified Angus Beef® perfectly prepared. And don’t forget to order Cagney's famous truffle fries. This restaurant is available for an additional cost.

Dolce Gelato: What's better than a Hawaii cruise? A Hawaii cruise with a delicious scoop of gelato. With so many flavors to choose from, all made fresh onboard, you may want to make it a double. This restaurant is available for an additional cost.

La Cucina: Enjoy the flavors of the Tuscan countryside at tables with room for old friends and new. Dine on classic dishes where you can taste the freshness of every tomato used to make an exquisitely delicious sauce. Try a twist on a classic like shrimp fettuccine, or keep it purist with an osso bucco. Just when you think you’re out, they’ll pull you back in with a toasty espresso and some macadamia nut ice cream. Delizioso! This restaurant is available for an additional cost.

Jefferson's Bistro: Have it au poivre or just go straight for the bouillabaisse at our signature French restaurant. Elegant interiors and attentive servers make this an intimate dining experience reminiscent of a Parisian café. By the end of your meal, you might just be proclaiming c’est magnifique! 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. Start with an impressive salad bar of imported cheeses, olives, cured meats, ceviche and specialty salads. Be sure to save room for the delicious skewers of slow-roasted meats including beef, pork, lamb and chicken – all carved table-side by Norwegian's Pasadores. This restaurant is available for an additional cost.

Sushi Bar: East Meets West Asian Restaurant also has a Sushi and Sashimi Bar where you can enjoy the very best sushi and sashimi expertly prepared as you watch. The menu is priced a la carte. This restaurant is available for an additional cost.

Teppanyaki: Flying shrimp. Onion volcanoes. Twirling knives. The sizzles and surprises never cease at our authentic Japanese Hibachi restaurant. Sit around a lively shared table as a skillful chef slices, chops and grills steak, seafood and chicken on a large steel grill right before your eyes. Norwegian's chilled, sake-infused Wasabi Cocktail will have you flipping too. This restaurant is available for an additional cost.

Aloha Café

Casual Dining

Aloha Café: This indoor/outdoor buffet-style eatery features food stations where you can order omelets, waffles, fruit, soups, ethnic specialties and pasta. Set against a Hawaiian theme with outrigger canoes, Polynesian carvings and even a kid-sized buffet.

Cadillac Diner: This totally retro 1950's diner has Cadillac seats, plays 50's Rock 'n Roll and offers up a classic menu of burgers, fish 'n chips, potpies and wok-fast dishes. Open 22-hours a day.

East Meets West: Enjoy an Asian Fusion dining venue featuring freshly prepared noodles, delicious wok fried dishes, authentic soups, and more.

Key West Bar & Grill: Enjoy casual dining to suit every taste. From grilled burgers to hot dogs, come as you are and eat as you like after a night out or before your day begins.

Room Service: If you can't come to the restaurant, Norwegian will bring the restaurant to you. Norwegian offers a menu of items that can be delivered to your stateroom. Room service is available 24 hours a day (a convenience charge applies to each order placed).
