Overview

Norwegian's newest ship, Encore, embarked on its inaugural journey in November 2019. The ship accommodates 3,998 guests and 1,700 crew members. Encore stands out for its unmatched onboard amenities, which include the longest racetrack at sea and a 10,000-square-foot outdoor laser tag arena. Cruisers can also enjoy virtual reality games and rides in the Galaxy Pavilion, two aqua parks with waterslides, a pool, a spa and a fitness center. Nighttime entertainment options are just as abundant, with more than a dozen bars and lounges on board. Live performances include various musical acts, from high-energy dance numbers to the Tony Award-winning Kinky Boots Broadway show.

When it comes to dining, you'll have your choice of five inclusive restaurants and nine specialty venues that range from casual American eateries to worldly fine dining establishments. Upscale options include the ship's alfresco steakhouse and Japanese hibachi restaurant, and coffee lovers will be pleased to find a Starbucks on board. 

Stateroom options range from Inside and Oceanview cabins to Balcony and Suite accommodations. You'll also find Studios designed specifically for solo travelers, spa-themed cabins and The Haven staterooms, which are located at the top of the ship and feature exclusive luxuries and access to an additional courtyard, restaurant and lounge. 

For the 2019-20 cruising season, Norwegian Encore sails from Miami and New York City to destinations in the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Bermuda, the Panama Canal, Canada and New England.
