Starting with Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Cruise Line reinvented its promenade decks so passengers can soak up the sea with a bite to eat on The Waterfront, an oceanfront destination onboard.


What It Is

Passengers who love to cruise want unobstructed ocean views and sea breezes, yet many mega-ships are floating amusement parks that offer everything but. To re-connect its passengers with the sea, Norwegian Cruise Line replaced the old-school promenade deck on its newest ships with The Waterfront.

Located on Deck 8, The Waterfront features a quarter-mile oceanfront walking path along with comfy sectional sofas and armchairs. Located on both sides of Deck 8, it also offers alfresco outlets of several of its most popular restaurants including Ocean Blue, Cagney's and La Cucina, along with bars that include The Cellars Wine Bar, Sugarcane Mojito Bar and The Cavern Club.

It's also the place to swing by and grab a cup of something decadent at Dolce Gelato.

Take a morning stroll, snuggle up with a book or watch the ship pull into port and snap photos from the perfect vantage point. It's one of the least crowded spots onboard, and the lounge areas are covered if you're looking for respite from the midday sun.
