Cruise News – Dec. 5, 2014
Get your Fins Up! Norwegian Cruise Line has announced the first-ever Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville restaurant and 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar will soon set sail aboard the upcoming Norwegian Escape (November 2015). Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd. CEO, Kevin Sheehan, announced the exciting news during a companywide event last night, which included a surprise performance by Jimmy Buffett himself who performed a set of his classic songs for the excited crowd.
Norwegian Escape’s Margaritaville will embody the laid-back atmosphere inspired by the lyrics and lifestyle of Jimmy Buffett. The menu will include signature items like the Cheeseburger in Paradise and Who’s to Blame Margarita. The venue will be one of the ship’s complimentary dining outlets. In addition to the restaurant, the 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar, a music venue and outdoor bar on The Waterfront, will feature live nightly performances.
Besides Norwegian Escape, the partnership also includes Margaritaville-branded food and beverage locations on the line’s new island destination in Harvest Caye, Belize, set to open in fall 2015, and a 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar on Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas, also planned to debut in 2015. In the future, the partnership will extend to other ships in the fleet.
