Norwegian Cruise Line has a fairly diverse selection of drinks. While they don’t have as many themed bars as other cruise lines, they’ve really stepped up their cocktail game on their newer ships. You’ll find bars that specialize in mojitos, whiskey, martinis, and craft beer. Many of their new menus have focused on pre-mixed cocktails such as cocktails on tap or bottled cocktails that are premade in the morning. They’ve partnered with companies like The Liquid Kitchen to make delicious cocktail that can be served quickly.

If you’ve ever been on a Norwegian cruise, you’ve noticed that the bars can be really busy. That’s because many passengers get the “free” Ultimate Beverage Package Package that’s often part of the “Free at Sea” promotion they’re almost always running. With this package, you can enjoy almost any alcoholic (and non-alcoholic beverage) up to $15.
While it’s positioned as free, you still have to pay gratuities, which can be $139 per person for a 7-day cruise. On top of that, fares that include the Free At Sea package are usually more expensive than a base price cabin. We’re not saying it’s not a good deal, especially if you enjoy alcoholic beverages, but do the math both ways if you want to save.

Here you’ll find some great craft beer choices. There are only a couple on tap but you’ll find up to 70 different varieties of craft canned beers. District Brewhouse can be found on the Norwegian Bliss, Norwegian Encore, Norwegian Escape, and Norwegian Joy.
Galveston Texas Menu
Because Texas has odd liquor laws, if you’re sailing out of Galveston, you won’t have access to the full bar menu until you’re out in international waters. These are the cocktails you’d be able order while waiting to set sail.
Haven Bar Menu
The Haven Bar is exclusively for guests saying in the Haven area of the ship. The Haven suite area is available in the Breakaway, Breakaway Plus, and Prima class ships.
The Local Bar Menu
The Local is one of Norwegian’s 24/7 restaurants where you can grab a drink or a bite to eat almost any time of the day.
Luna Bar / Soleil Bar
The Luna and Soleil bar are located in the Indulge Food Hall on Norwegian Prima and Viva. The Luna is inside portion of the bar while the Soleil is the exterior (if it’s a sunny day, Soleil will be packed but Luna will be empty, so stop by there to grab your drink quickly).
Maltings Whiskey Bar Menu
This bar specializes in whiskey and whiskey-based cocktails. You can find it on the Norwegian Bliss, Norwegian Breakaway, Norwegian Encore, Norwegian Epic, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Jewel, and Norwegian Pearl.
The Metropolitan Bar is located on Deck 7 of the Norwegian Prima and Viva. The focus here is on sustainable cocktails with many ingredients coming from food waste from the ship.
Norwegian Prima Wine List
Since it’s the newest ship, the Norwegian Prima has a slightly different menu than the rest of the fleet. The menu below was found in the Hudson’s main dining room in mid-September.
O’Sheehan’s Bar Menu
O’Sheehan’s is an Irish-style pub that’s open nearly 24/7. Stop by to grab a drink or a bite to eat at almost any time of day.
Penrose Bar Menu
Penrose Bar is located on the first floor of the beautiful Penrose Atrium (Deck 6). It’s both the bar for the main atrium area and the casino with slot machines built it. It can get very busy at night.
Proof Whiskey Bar
Proof Whiskey Bar is located on the 3rd floor (Deck 8) of the Penrose Atrium. This large, circular bar offers beautiful views during the day, and is a lively spot for pre- or post-dinner drinks.
The Speedway Bar is a new addition to the Prima and Viva. The bar can be hard to find, it’s behind the entrance to the Speedway, but offers good views of the race track as well as the water.
All Norwegian cruise ships now serve Starbucks coffee. Some ships have dedicated Starbucks shops/kiosks, others just serve it at their other bars and restaurants. The menu will vary on each ship and seasonal specialties (ie pumpkin spice) may be available certain times of year.
Starbucks drinks are NOT included in the Standard Open Bar package that comes as part of the Free at Sea promo. You can either upgrade to the Premium Plus beverage package or buy the designated Starbucks package. See all of Norwegian’s drink packages here.
Sugarcane Mojito Bar
Mojitos are a cruise favorite, and you can find a variety of specialty ones at Sugarcane Mojito Bar. You can find it on the Norwegian Bliss, Norwegian Dawn, Norwegian Escape, Norwegian Gem, Norwegian Jade, Norwegian Jewel, and Norwegian Pearl, and Norwegian Star.
Standard Bar Menu
If an indoor bar doesn’t have it dedicated menu, it’ll likely use a variation of the menu seen below. You’ll find this menu at Atrium bars and other bars around the ship that aren’t specialty (ie. not a mojito or champagne bar).
Standard Wine Menu
Vibe Beach Club Bar Menu
The Vibe Bar is in the Vibe Beach Club. This adults-only area is available exclusively to those who purchase a Vibe Beach Pass (typically over $200 per person for the whole cruise).
