Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that the American Diner restaurant on six ships in the fleet will be changing from a speciality venue to a complimentary one, meaning guests can enjoy the menu without paying an additional fee.
The reason for the change hasn’t been announced, although it’s believed that the diner wasn’t the most popular with guests, and so the cruise line wasn’t making much by charging a fee for it anyway.
The American Diner features on the Breakaway Class and Breakaway Plus Class, so these changes will impact the following ships:
- Norwegian Getaway – already transitioned
- Norwegian Escape – January 6th switchover
- Norwegian Encore – January 7th switchover
- Norwegian Breakaway – January 7th switchover
- Norwegian Bliss – January 7th switchover
- Norwegian Joy – February 13th switchover
As part of the changes, a new menu will be launched that removes some of the more premium dishes that were previously offered, such as the lobster sliders which were one of the more popular dishes when the venue had a charge.
While most items on the menu will now be complimentary, there will be a $7 surcharge for guests who want to try one of the authentic milkshakes.
One of the main benefits of the change to the venue will be the calming of crowds in other locations. In particular, the Garden Cafe is known to get very busy during peak times, and people often face long waits to eat.
It will also help to keep O’Sheehans quieter, where many of the same menu choices are already served.
