Norwegian Cruise Line has been recognized as having the Best Beer Program and Best Wine Program out of all hotels, cruise lines, and casinos.
The recognition came from the 2017 Vista Awards, which were held on February 28 during the VIBE beverage conference. Norwegian was the only cruise line honored there. The awards recognize top performers in the beverage industry through the creation, training, execution, management, and ongoing positive results of beverage programs. Entries are reviewed by a panel of Johnson & Wales University beverage faculty, staff, and alumni and judge on sales initiatives, efficient operational innovations and training, and high-quality service programs.
Norwegian’s Senior Director of Restaurant & Beverage Operations Wes Cort accepted the two awards, along with Luis Ortega, Manager of Beverage Operations Development for the cruise line.
