Norwegian Cruise Line has received the Best Wine Program and Best Adult Alcohol-Free Program Awards at the 2023 Vibe Vista Awards. The Vibe Vista Awards recognizes top performers in hotel beverage programs.
“The foundation of our guest-first philosophy is built on continuously innovating the onboard experience and further developing our award-winning food and beverage programs,” said Mark Kansley, senior vice president of hotel operations at Norwegian Cruise Line.
“We are thrilled to share the accomplishments of our skilled onboard culinary and beverage professionals whose talents continuously showcase NCL’s commitment to excellence and innovation in creating unique dining experiences for our guests.”
Norwegian Cruise Line has now been awarded nine Vibe Vista Awards throughout the last five years. This includes the Best Overall Beverage Program in 2019 and 2022.
This year Vibe Visa recognized Norwegian’s rare, organized vintage wine program curated by Master Sommelier Andrea Robinson and the Meet the Winemaker series which provides exclusive culinary experiences.
Norwegian was also recognized for its Adult Alcohol-Free Program. The program includes a dry bar menu with low-alcohol, zero-waste and ready-to-drink cocktails and was first introduced at Vibe Beach Club on Norwegian Prima.
Norwegian Cruise Line’s Director of Culinary Operations Eric Bilodeau and Fleet Executive Chef Patrice Mick have also recently been indicted into L’Académie Culinaire de France in the French Consulate of New York City. The award is based on a chef’s passion for French Cuisine, their career and their dedication to passing their culinary knowledge to the next generation.
