(11 a.m. EDT) -- When Norwegian Encore launches in November 2019, it will feature an all-new restaurant concept for Norwegian Cruise Line: Onda by Scarpetta, an upscale Italian venue found in some of the world's best-known hotels such as the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach and the Rittenhouse Hotel in Philadelphia. Encore will also feature eight additional restaurants and nine bars, all familiar to Norwegian cruisers.

The new restaurant is being created in partnership with LDV Hospitality, whose Scarpetta portfolio of restaurants can be found in New York City, the Hamptons, Miami, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Newport and London.

"We are passionate about delivering innovative and exceptional experiences to our guests, and this exciting collaboration with LDV Hospitality showcases that commitment beautifully," said Andy Stuart, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. "Onda by Scarpetta will be the perfect complement to the variety of spectacular offerings available on our soon-to-launch Norwegian Encore."

Onda by Scarpetta will be located along The Waterfront (a wraparound, outdoor promenade with space for outdoor dining and lounging), and diners can choose to eat inside or outdoors. The menu will showcase a selection of modern Italian dishes, as well as homemade pastas, including such items as yellowtail crudo, branzino, and the Scarpetta signature dish, spaghetti tomato and basil.
