Norwegian Cruise Line “Rolls” Out More Sushi Selections

While it isn't one of my favorite foods—mainly because I'm hopeless when it comes to eating anything with chopsticks—I know how popular sushi is with my friends and fellow passengers, so this is big news for them. Norwegian Cruise Line will now offer its popular sushi a la carte menu, previously available on Norwegian Epic, throughout its fleet (with the exception of Norwegian Sky). The extensive menu, which features sushi, sashimi, light appetizers, and desserts, will now also be offered as a lunch option on embarkation and sea days.

The new menu gives guests the freedom and flexibility to customize their dining experience by providing pricing per item with dishes averaging four dollars. Guests can select from a number of different appetizers such as edamame, miso soup, or sesame seaweed salad. Sushi selections include such favorites as the Godzilla Roll, a tasty roll with sweet shrimp, mango, avocado, caramelized cashews and coconut; and the Dynamite Roll with yellowtail, salmon, green onion, and maki tempura style. Different variations of sushi and sashimi like yellow fin tuna, octopus and salmon are also offered. Guests can complete their meal with a dessert like green tea cake or fruit sashimi. Those sound so good that I plan to try them on my next Norwegian cruise, but only if I can use a fork.

The sushi a la carte menu began rolling out to the fleet this past weekend, starting with Norwegian Dawn on Sept 16; Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Jewel, Norwegian Star, and Pride of America on Sept 17; Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Pearl, and Norwegian Spirit on Sept 18. Norwegian Sun passengers will have to wait until Oct 5 to get their saushi fix.
