Best Things to Eat and Drink on Norwegian Encore?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!


I'm pulling together an article on Cruise Critic about the absolute best things to eat and drink on Norwegian Encore -- and would love your suggestions! I was on the ship when it was in New York a few weeks ago, and was able to dine at a few places (including Onda by Scarpetta -- yum!) But some of you have been on the ship for longer voyages, and so I'd love your input. 


So how about it? What dining delights, specialty or complimentary, would you tell your friends and family not to miss? Any favorite cocktails onboard? (I love almost any of the spicier drinks from the Sugarcane Mojito bar!)

We were on the Encore Inaugural 2 Day in NYC as well - dined at Los Lobos and absolutely loved that they make the guacamole right next to your table. The Empanadas and Tacos were delicious!


We enjoyed Chocolate Martinis as well as Mudslides at the Observation Lounge Bar!

I can vouch for NCL's Espresso Martinis and Rebellious Fish, both are great cocktails. The mojitos from the mojito bar are also all pretty much great! If you want more of a desert beverage, go for the BBC, Bushwacker or Mudslide - they are essentially boozy milkshakes!

Filet at Le Bistro

Lobster Sliders at Am Diner

My favorites enjoyed on the Transatlantic:



Turkey Club

Beet & Watermelon Salad

Carrot Cake



Burrata Salad

Pappardelle Bolognese (much better than the spaghetti basil)

Veal Chop Milanese

Butterscotch Budino (one of the best desserts I have ever had anywhere)



Beef Brisket

Jalapeno Cheese Cornbread



Chicken Salad Sandwich

Burgers (huge and delicious!)



Daily Asian and Indian specialties were always delicious

We had meals mostly in casual complimentary places this time.


Garden Cafe:


Pizza - thin crusted and lots of variety 

Asian noodles station - freshly cooked lunch time

Indian station - the goat dish was delicious 

Soft serve ice cream


The Local:


Reuben - and I asked for extra sauerkraut 

Fish and chips - chips were so good
