Norwegian Cruise Line is now offering kosher meals at no extra charge.
 
Travelers must order kosher meals at least 30 days in advance. The kosher meals are available on all of the line’s cruises to all destinations on every one of the company’s ships.
 
The new and upgraded menu launched this week includes a variety of options. Kosher meals are produced under the strict supervision of the Orthodox Union and are provided by the international catering company Borenstein. Each meal serves a first course, a main course, two sides and a dessert. Passengers are able to choose the dishes they want for each day during the cruise, selecting from a wide selection of options – including meat, chicken, fish, etc. – all prepared by the catering company. Each serving in the new menu is served to the guests packaged and sealed with personal dishes. A glatt kosher selection is also available.
 
“We are now setting a new standard for the global cruising industry, and now rich and diverse kosher food will be part of the culinary experience we offer to guests on all our ships,” said Nick Wilkinson, vice president of Norwegian Cruise Line, Israel, Middle East and Africa. “More and more Israeli families are choosing to go on vacations with our luxury cruise ships, and we see great importance in providing suitable solutions to the kosher public among our Israeli and worldwide customers. The decision to serve kosher meals at no extra cost is a testament to the great importance we see in this market, and the great potential it holds.”
 
Challot will be served at Shabbat dinner on all ships. Kosher red and white wines will also be available for purchase by the glass or bottle on all ships.
 
During the holidays, such as Passover, the company will hold a Seder for groups that are registered in advance. Matzot will also be provided upon request. Ships also feature private rooms for those wishing to hold services and light Shabbat candles.
