Popular Italian eatery Scarpetta, which has locations around the world, is now opening its first-ever restaurant on a cruise ship.
The new Onda by Scarpetta will make its debut on the still-in-production Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Encore ship, joining a portfolio of Scarpetta-branded eateries in New York, Miami, Las Vegas, The Hamptons, London, Philadelphia and Newport.
It’s the product of a collaboration between NCL and LDV Hospitality.
“We are passionate about delivering innovative and exceptional experiences to our guests, and this exciting collaboration with LDV Hospitality showcases that commitment beautifully,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “Onda by Scarpetta will be the perfect complement to the variety of spectacular offerings available on our soon-to-launch Norwegian Encore.”
Norwegian Encore will sail seven-day cruises to the Eastern Caribbean beginning this November.
The ship will also sail a combination of four, five and seven-day itineraries to Bermuda in April 2020, along with a return to the Caribbean for the 2020 winter season.
