Norwegian Cruise Line is amping up their Freestyle Dining options to include the popular sushi a la carte menu, on almost all of their ships.
The Norwegian Epic, their newest ship launched in June 2010, was the first to offer a full sushi menu. On the selected ships, guests will choose from an a la carte choice of sushi, sashimi, light appetizers and desserts. The extensive sushi menu will be
offered for lunch on embarkation and sea days as well as every evening for dinner.
Among the sushi selections, which range from $3.00 to $4.75 each, are the popular Godzilla Rolls – made with sweet shrimp, mango, avocado, caramelized cashews and coconut, and the slightly spicy Dynamite Roll – with yellowtail, salmon, green onion maki tempura style. Light appetizers are also available which includes edamame, miso soup and sesame seed salad. To finish their meal, there are green tea cakes and fruit sashimi for dessert.
This weekend, the sushi “roll out” will begin with the Norwegian Dawn, followed by the Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Jewel, Norwegian Star and the Pride of America on Saturday. On Sunday, the Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Pearl and Norwegian Spirit will be added to the list. After she returns to Port Canaveral from her summer in Europe, the Norwegian Sun will have the sushi menu beginning on October 5. At this time, the Norwegian Sky, sailing three and four night cruises from Miami, is excluded.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s dining experience spans the globe with options ranging from Italian, French, Chinese, classic American, sushi, Teppanyaki and Brazilian churrasco.
