The ship will boast three new offerings: Sukhothai, the cruise line’s first Thai restaurant; Swirl Wine Bar; and Planterie, Norwegian’s first dedicated eatery with a plant-based menu.

“Discovering new flavors and dining experiences is such a memorable part of any vacation, especially when you share it with those who matter most to you,” said David J. Herrera, president, Norwegian Cruise Line. “Expanding on our award-winning food and beverage program, we’re looking forward to bringing new concepts to life aboard Norwegian Aqua, while continuing to deliver on the variety of available offerings and value that NCL delivers.”

Sukhothai will feature an eclectic menu with authentic, traditional dishes; located on deck 17, décor includes bamboo and rice paper pendant lights, a geometric patterned floor, and colorful furnishings. In returning Indulge Food Hall, Planterie will offer plant-based bowls and healthy options, like the Southwest Bowl with smoked tempeh. Contemporary Swirl Wine Bar will be tucked away on deck six and boast a wine by the glass menu, and rare and premium vintages.

Norwegian Aqua also sees redesigns of some of the cruise line’s timeless venues, including Commodore Room, now featuring a rustic yet luxurious design; a distinct new look for Metropolitan, the modern Sail & Sustain cocktail bar; a new color palette for Nama Sushi and Sashimi; floor-to-ceiling windows at Surfside Café; natural materials used in an elevated design at Palomar; a relocation for Whiskey Bar and Belvedere Bar; new designs at Penrose Bar and Waves Pool Bar; and expansions at The Local Bar & Grill, Hasuki and Cagney’s.

Krakow’s Old Town Charms with Stunning Beauty, Museums and Great Food

A stop in Krakow would not be complete without a visit to the Lady with an Ermine, a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, said to be second only to the Mona Lisa. One of four extant Da Vinci portraits, it depicts a young woman, mistress of Ludovico Sforza, embracing an outsize ermine thought to be a reference to Ludovico’s nickname “the white ermine.” The national treasure is a highlight of the significant collection in the city’s Czartoryski Museum, the country’s oldest, comprising three historical buildings: a 19th-century monastery, the 16th-century Municipal Arsenal and the neo-Gothic Palace built in the 19th century for the prominent noble Czartoryski family whose ancestor, Princess Izabela, founded the museum in 1796.
