Norwegian Breakaway is where history will happen as Food Network star, Iron Chef and New York City restaurateur, Geoffrey Zakarian, launches Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian. Our first-ever fine-dining seafood experience will also be a first for Chef Zakarian, who will bring his 25 plus years of award-winning style and passion for fine cuisine to Norwegian Cruise Line with a restaurant highlighting his attention to detail not only in the kitchen but throughout the dining room as well. Guests will be treated to a menu of refined seafood items prepared with the highest quality ingredients, a stellar wine list and of course, Zakarian's signature cocktails.
Oceanside during the daytime hours, Ocean Blue on The Waterfront, where every table enjoys the breeze and views of the sea, will serve up casual "beachy" fare referencing Zakarian's love for classic shore favorites. And right beside Ocean Blue by Geoffrey Zakarian is The Raw Bar, Zakarian's take on his perfect meal - oysters and a glass of wine.
Offering fresh crustaceans, crudos, shellfish and extensive wines by the glass, this bar allows guests to pull up for a snack or a meal, solo or with friends and simply enjoy the best that the ocean has to offer. In addition to creating all-new food and beverage menus and signature dishes for all three dining venues, Geoffrey Zakarian will meet-and-greet guests and provide intimate cooking experiences for smaller groups on select sailings.
Le Bistro French Restaurant
Dining aboard Norwegian Breakaway is an experience unlike anything else at sea. With many of our restaurants offering indoor, outdoor and Atrium Al Fresco seating, Norwegian Breakaway brings an entirely new experience to our concept of Freestyle dining.
Onboard, you’ll find Freestyle Cruising favorites along with exciting new venues like Ocean Blu and Ocean Blu on the Waterfront, our new seafood restaurants offering indoor and outdoor seating. Plus, Norwegian Breakaway has three complimentary main dining rooms: Savor, Taste and The Manhattan Room. Whatever you’re craving, Norwegian Breakaway’s dining options will satisfy.
If you’ve always dreamed of dining at a sidewalk cafe in France, Le Bistro can satisfy your craving. Our new seating option, Atrium Al Fresco, is reminiscent of sidewalk-style dining - overlooking the social hub of 678 Ocean Place. Be mesmerized by the 3-story cascading LED chandelier and the constant flow of people as you dine on classic French favourites.
Succulent grilled steaks along with perfectly cooked double cut lamb chops will make your mouth water at our signature steakhouse. With an opening to view The Manhattan Room below, you can dine in style amidst the warm wood tones and comfortable leather. It’s an experience that should be savoured and enjoyed at least once on your cruise.
Savor, our newest Main Dining Room option is stunning in design, with colours like the setting sun over a deep blue sea. The cuisine is traditional with a contemporary flair. You’ll find Savor aft on Deck Six, on the opposite side of another Main Dining Room, Taste. And although they’re located close together, these two distinct venues offer different menus and décor, providing guests with more choices than ever before. This dining option is included in the cruise fare.
Destined to become a guest favourite, Taste is a Main Dining Room serving a variety of culinary delights to please every palate. You’ll find Taste aft on Deck Six, on the opposite side of our newest Main Dining Room, Savor. With a menu that changes daily, you can enjoy a different culinary adventure with each visit to Taste. And with its close proximity to Savor, it’s easier than ever to navigate between Main Dining choices.
Taste features charming architectural curves, floor-to-ceiling velvet curtains and colourful stained glass. This dining option is included in the cruise fare.
Dinner and a show, complete with flying shrimp and the unmistakable ting-ting-tinging sound of chef knives, can only be found at Teppanyaki, our largest Teppanyaki at sea. Admire the contemporary Asian décor if you can take your eyes off the chefs before you, preparing authentic Japanese cuisine on the oversized Hibachi grills.
The Manhattan Room
One of three Main Dining Rooms aboard Norwegian Breakaway, The Manhattan Room is designed like a private New York City supper club. This is a guest favourite with its expansive dance floor and panoramic ocean views from two-story, floor-to-ceiling windows. Stylish fixtures complement the ambiance.
This dining option is included in the cruise fare.
Norwegian was first to bring this dining concept to sea, and now we’ve taken it a step further with outdoor seating at our signature Brazilian-style steakhouse.
Whether you dine indoors or out, your mouth will water as different grilled and slow-roasted meats are carved tableside. Use your Moderno Green and Red Place Card to control the carving. Green side up and the professional “Passadores” will continue to stop at your table with succulent skewers of meats. Use the red side to stop.
Moderno Signature Salad display is a traditional part of any churrascaria. You’ll find a mouthwatering, bountiful selection of freshly prepared salads, artisan cheeses and more.
O'Sheehan's Neighborhood Bar & Grill
Located on Deck 7, in the heart of the action at 678 Ocean Place, this is the place to hang out, 24/7. Serving up Irish/American classics in a relaxed, pub atmosphere, O’Sheehan’s is a guest favourite complete with billiards, darts, arcade games, TV’s and a giant two-story screen for sports and movies. The sport of people watching is popular, too.
Shanghai's Noodle Bar
When you crave a taste of the Orient, think Shanghai’s Noodle Bar. You’ll find it on Deck 7, next to The Manhattan Room. Sit at the counter and let our skilled chefs prepare authentic dim sum and fried rice as you watch. It’s more than delicious, it’s fun! Order your noodles prepared in a wok or cooked to perfection in a scrumptious broth with your choice of sauces and flavors. This dining option is priced a la carte.
La Cucina Italian Restaurant
Prefer your pasta al dente in the main restaurant, outdoors on The Waterfront or would you like to dine Atrium Al Fresco-style? The menu at La Cucina’s is casual, family-style Italian and the ambiance, including the courtyard, is Tuscan-esque complete with lanterns, timbers and stonework. Be sure to try the pizza.
Slow churned, dense and intense in flavour, gelato is Italy’s answer to ice cream. And our version is the perfect accompaniment to a leisure stroll on your exploration of The Waterfront. Choose from a variety of flavours and drift off in sweet thoughts as you walk in the breeze.
Wasabi Sushi Bar
A traditional sushi bar complete with a Yakitori grill, Wasabi serves up a nice selection of popular sushi, sashimi and rolled favourites. In addition to your artfully prepared meal, you’ll find a unique contemporary décor that includes authentic calligraphy-lined walls and digital aquarium visuals that are displayed on an in-wall plasma screen. Sake fan? Check out our Sake menu for a carafe. This dining option is priced a la carte.
Breezeway Bar & Grill
Come as you are to this casual, semi-open air eatery, even in your swimsuit. Located just off the Aqua Park and close to our teen area, the Breezeway Bar & Grill is the ideal spot to grab a bite and get back to the action. Or stay for a while and enjoy some liquid refreshment. Best of all, you won’t lose sight of the fun, or the ocean. The Breezeway Bar & Grill is a complimentary dining option.
Whatever you’re craving, chances are you will find it at the Garden Cafe buffet. This complimentary, indoor restaurant serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner – and the floor-to-ceiling windows provide picturesque ocean views.
In addition to a variety of entrées and side dishes, you’ll find our popular action stations featuring made-to-order omelets and waffles, an Italian pasta station, a carving station with freshly prepared meats sliced to your liking, grilled specialties, ethnic favorites, and a dessert area lined with sweet surprises.
