Cruise News: Hot Items At Sea

Dec 4, 2015 | By Lauramay LaChance



With the holiday season — and holiday shopping — in full swing, we're all making our list. We've got your back on the perfect gift for the cruise lover in your life.

The restaurant was an immediate hit from it’s opening in Southampton to the inaugural sailing on November 9 in Miami. To help with the high demand and long wait times (up to an hour when was on), Norwegian Cruise Line has changed the restaurant from complimentary to a la carte. The fees are still considerably cheaper than the landside Margaritaville with the Cheeseburger in Paradise costing $6.99, Grilled Chicken Sandwich costing $5.99, and Fish Tacos costing $6.99.

These little treats make him the most popular guy in his house and he’s sharing his secret recipe with us.

Royal Caribbean announced that the award-winning Broadway musical Grease is headed for two of their ships; Independence of the Seas, and the upcoming Harmony of the Seas. The all-new, never-before-seen stage production, specially adapted by Royal Caribbean Productions, will feature a soundtrack of crowd favorites such as “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’,” “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee,” “Beauty School Dropout” and more. The production will be featured on the ships beginning May 2016 while sailing in Europe.



Shopping on cruise ships has come a long way and now the famous Tiffany & Co. is on Royal Caribbean International’s Oasis of the Seas.
