Peeking Ahead at Norwegian Encore Dining
Inspired by guests that we have traveling on the first “regularly scheduled” sailing of the newest Norwegian Cruise Line vessel, Norwegian Encore, here’s peek ahead at the dining options that will be available. Most of the choices will look familiar to veteran Norwegian Cruise Line guests, as many of these options also appear on other Norwegian ships. But with each new ship comes some new twists on those existing concepts, as well as something entirely new here and there.
The basic Norwegian Cruise Line dining concept remains the same. Freestyle Cruising means flexible dining times, several complimentary dining options available, and signature dining experiences at an additional cost.
Balancing classic favorites with unique new dishes, dining at Savor is a must. Offering guests an extensive menu of deliciously fresh flavors along with chic and modern decor, visiting this Main Dining Room is always in style.
The Manhattan Room (Complimentary)
One of three Main Dining Rooms aboard Norwegian Encore, The Manhattan Room is where guests can enjoy specially curated modern and classic dishes made with the freshest ingredients.
Garden Café (Complimentary)
Whatever you’re craving, chances are you will find it at Garden Café. This complimentary, indoor restaurant serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner – and the floor-to-ceiling windows provide picturesque ocean views.
Serving a wide variety of cuisine, Taste offers a stylish and contemporary atmosphere. Plus, with a menu that changes daily, Chef’s Signature Dishes and carefully selected wine recommendations, you’ll experience a different culinary adventure with every visit to this Main Dining Room.
The Local (Complimentary)
The Local offers classic pub fare in a relaxed atmosphere 24-hours a day.

At Q, dig into some authentic Texas BBQ (extra napkins encouraged). Smoked over hickory and oak wood, all our meats are infused with delicious flavors – whether ribs, chicken or brisket. As dinner winds down, the atmosphere heats up as a contemporary country band ropes you into a lively night of dancing, drinking and a honky tonk good time!
