The Flamingo Bar & Grill was a nice surprise in terms of Norwegian offering something different. Located on deck 11, right above the Garden Cafe buffet, the restaurant is free and offered fairly authentic and tasty Latin American/Caribbean food. Other guests will likely give a similar verdict and review as well.

It usually open for breakfast, then closes until 1 or 2PM, when it serves its full offerings until 5 PM. The breakfast fare is pretty typical, but the food that the Flamingo Grill provides in the afternoon is good stuff, muy delicioso.

The menu is as follows:



  • Ensalada de Tomate - Tomato Salad

  • Ensalada de Patata y Jamon - Potato, Ham and Pea Salad

  • Ensalada Mixta de Frijoles - Bean Salad


  • Pan con Lechon - Pulled Pork Sandwich

  • Choripan - Chorizo with Chimichurri Sandwich

  • Hamburguesa Latina - Beef & Chorizo Burger with Manchego Cheese


  • Puerco Asado - Puerto Rican Style Roast Pork

  • Albondigas de Carne Picante - Venezuelan Meatballs

  • Pollo Asado - Grilled Chicken

  • Pierna Asada - Pulled Pork

Rice & Sides

  • Arroz con Pollo - Yellow Rice and Chicken

  • Croquetas de Pollo - Chicken Croquettes

  • Yuca Frita - Fried Yuca

  • Platanos Maduros Frito - Deep Fried Sweet Plantains

  • Empanada de Espinaca - Spinach Empanada

  • Pastelitos de Coco - Coconut Pastry

  • Pastelitos de Guayaba y Queso - Guava and Cheese Pastry


  • Flan de Leche - Caramel Custard

  • Arroz con Leche - Rice Pudding

  • Tres Leches - Three Milk Cake

Breakfast Sandwiches

  • Egg & Chedder Cheese English Muffin

  • Egg & Sausage Patty English Muffin

  • Ham & Swiss Cheese Open Face Bagel

  • Turkey & American Cheddar Cheese / Open Face Bagel

Additional Breakfast Items

  • Ham & Swiss Cheese / Tomato Sauce / Puff Pastry

  • Scrambled Eggs / Potato / Bell Pepper / Onion / Potato Roll

  • Scrambled Eggs / Sausage & Bacon / Spring Onion Roll

  • Smoked Salmon Platter

  • Assorted Fruit Yogurts with Granola

  • Mixed Fruit Salads

  • Assorted Cinnamon Rolls

  • Assorted Bagels

  • Pastelitos de Queso - Cheese Pastry

Our favorites were the Latin Burger (got it kick to it, and you can taste the chorizo in the patty), fried plantains, BBQ beef short ribs, fried Yuca, and the flan.

The only real con about the Flamingo Grill is that it closes too early. It would be nice if it were open until midnight, offering another alternative to late night snacking from O'Sheehan's.

The following Norwegian Cruise Line Miami-based employees were recognized for the development of the Grill's cuisine, based on family recipes of Latin heritage:

  • Susy Ruiz, Hotel Operations

  • Alicia Suarez, Global Sales

  • Jennifer Marmanillo, Itinerary Planning

  • Sandra Rodriguez, Market research

It is pretty cool to have your names and faces attached to a cruise restaurant!
