Earlier today, Norwegian Cruise Line announced that Certified Angus Beef will now be exclusively served in select specialty restaurants throughout the Norwegian fleet. This move in beef selection now makes Norwegian Cruise Line the only cruise line to serve Certified Angus Beef at sea. Certified Angus Beef brand steaks are rated above USDA Prime, Choice and Select, and are known for their superior flavor, juiciness and tenderness; these steaks will be served in Cagney’s Steakhouse and Le Bistro French Restaurant aboard 10 of Norwegian’s ships. Norwegian Jade and Norwegian Spirit will begin serving these steaks by August.
“With the addition of Certified Angus Beef in our steakhouse and French restaurant, we’ve taken an already great meal and made it outstanding,” said Kevin Sheehan, CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. “There is no better steak available and, as a New Yorker who knows a good steak, it was an obvious choice to bring these high quality selections to Cagney’s Steakhouse and Le Bistro.”
Guests can choose from a wide variety of premium cuts, ranging from a 14-ounce dry-aged center-cut strip loin to an 18-ounce bone-in ribeye. Additional offerings include an eight-ounce center-cut filet and a 16-ounce boneless ribeye. Guests can also customize their Certified Angus Beef steak with an array of seasonings and signature sauces including garlic butter, gorgonzola-crusted, chimichurri, green peppercorn and more. Cagney’s Steakhouse serves all of the selected cuts, while Le Bistro offers the eight-ounce center-cut filet.
The steaks were first introduced on Norwegian Breakaway, the company’s newest and most innovative ship to date.
