Passengers currently cruising aboard Norwegian Encore were treated to NCL’s Celebration Day Buffet of culinary favourites from holidays and special occasions throughout the year.
Setting sail from Seattle on Aug. 7, 2021, this voyage made history as the company’s first cruise from the U.S. in over a year, and Norwegian Encore’s inaugural journey to Alaska.
It also marked the first time many cruisers reunited with loved ones in over a year. The occasion was an opportunity to make up for missed birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations and more.
To honour the last 17 months of uncelebrated holidays and reunions, NCL treated guests to a wide assortment of holiday staples including extravagant Alaskan King Crab legs and beef wellington to ring in the New Year; indulgent sweets for Valentine’s Day; BBQ favorites for Fourth of July including ribs, corn on the cob, burgers and fries; fall favorites including roast turkey, stuffing, cornbread and an assortment of holiday pies; and over-the-top birthday cakes.
Close to 2,600 guests indulged in the feast.
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” one guest exclaimed.
Another said: “It’s been really nice reliving all of the holidays that we missed … it’s nice to be back.”
One woman, who was on board celebrating her husband’s birthday, said” “I love NCL so much and this is the reason … how much you care about us.”
