If you are sailing on a Norwegian Cruise Line ship today, you don’t need a four-leaf clover to bring you luck, although you might want to tuck one into your pocket before visiting the casino. NCL is bringing the luck of the Irish to sea on board each of its eleven Freestyle Cruising ships where passengers can don their green attire and dancing shoes.
Special celebrations are being held throughout the fleet during this week’s St. Patrick’s Day sailings, complete with festive decorations, specialty beverages, themed menu items, and live entertainment with traditional Irish jigs in the nightclub venues.
True to tradition, green beer will be available upon request, as well as specialty cocktails such as the “Irish Eyes,” made with Jameson whiskey, in any of the line’s pubs, bars or lounges including O’Sheehan’s Bar & Grill; Longboard, Red Lion, and Henry’s Pub. Irish-style menu options such as corned beef and cabbage with butter boiled potatoes will be offered in select dining venues and each ship’s action station restaurants. If you want to enjoy live entertainment, you can dance the night away to Irish jigs in the nightclub venues, or try to find a pot of gold in the ship’s casino.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day and don’t forget your lucky shamrock!
