The Norwegian Encore, coming in 2019, will feature a version of the Broadway musical "Kinky Boots" as its showpiece in the main theater.

The show features music from Cyndi Lauper and is based on a 2005 film about a struggling shoe factory in England whose strait-laced owner turns to making boots for drag queens to save his business.

"Kinky Boots," exclusive to the Encore, will be joined by two other shows that have debuted on other Norwegian ships.

"The Choir of Man," which recently debuted on Norwegian Escape, combines high-energy music, dance, live percussion and foot stomping choreography by nine "ordinary guys" who perform everything from sing-along anthems to classic rock.

"Happy Hour Prohibition: The Musical," the interactive cocktails and theater show, and the Beatles-themed Cavern Club first appeared on Norwegian Bliss and will also be on the Encore.

Norwegian also said the two-deck go-cart track from Bliss will be expanded on the Encore to 1,150 feet. It will have ten turns and four points that extend up to 13 feet over the side of the ship, along with a covered viewing area in the center of the track where guests can provide passing go-karts with an additional turbo boost by tagging them with a laser beam.

Also on the Encore will be the Galaxy Pavilion, a 10,000-square-foot indoor virtual-reality complex, with multisensory virtual experiences, simulators and an escape room.

The open-air laser tag arena on the Encore will be themed to the lost city of Atlantis. An Aqua Park and two multistory water slides complete the entertainment package.
