Norwegian sweetens-up with Carlo’s Bakery

Norwegian Cruise Line is getting sweeter, with plans to roll out Carlo’s Bake Shop across the fleet.

The bakery, owned Master Baker Buddy Valastro, also the star of reality television series ‘Cake Boss’ and ‘Next Great Baker’, was first introduced on board Norwegian Breakaway when it was launched in May last year.

Since the line has opened the shop on one other Breakaway-class ship, Norwegian Getaway.

The bakery sells cookies, cakes, Oreo Dark Chocolate Mousse, Purple Groovy Fondant cakes and Italian butter chocolates.

It also offers pre-order custom specialty cakes for birthdays and anniversaries.

Norwegian Cruise Line chief executive Kevin Sheehan said Carlo’s Bake Shop on Getaway and Breakaway have been a hit amongst guests.

“We are thrilled to make Cruising like a Norwegian even sweeter now by offering Buddy’s incredible dessert creations to guests sailing on all of the ships in our fleet,” he said.

Norwegian Epic will be the first ship to offer Carlo’s Bakery starting 9 March, followed by Norwegian Dawn on 16 March, Norwegian Jewel on 23 March, Norwegian Star on 30 March and Norwegian Gem on 8 April.
