CBS to Bring NorthStar POS to Restaurants Aboard Norwegian Cruise Line’s New Norwegian Bliss
In its fourth partnership with Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings Ltd.’s ships, Custom Business Solutions announces plans to provide its NorthStar cloud-based point of sale software for Food Republic and The District Brewhouse aboard the new Norwegian Bliss.
Custom-built for the ultimate cruising experience, Norwegian Bliss will boast an array of exhilarating activities, delectable dining options and show stopping performances. The line's sixteenth ship will sail weekly seven-day Alaska cruises during her inaugural summer 2018 season and, beginning in November, Norwegian Bliss will trade in Alaska's scenery for Caribbean sunsets as she sails seven-day Eastern Caribbean cruises each Saturday from Port Miami.
The District Brewhouse and Food Republic will be equipped with the cloud-based NorthStar Order Entry System. In Food Republic, guests will be able to manage their dining experience by ordering directly from encased iPads on the table. Restaurant staff will also use iPads equipped with NorthStar for order processing. This will be the third ship for Food Republic and the second ship for The District Brewhouse.
For this installation, Custom Business Solutions designed an innovative new iPad case that utilizes RFID technology to allow guests to tap their stateroom key cards to pay their check.
The District Brewhouse will offer up to 50 different bottled beers and 24 draft beers on tap. The District Brewhouse will also serve craft cocktails, masterminded by the internationally recognized Bar Lab mixologists.
Food Republic will allow guests to savor a fusion of food and cultures from around the globe. With fusions ranging from Peru, Japan and China, guests can travel the world without ever leaving the ship.
Developed for the restaurant industry seven years ago, the NorthStar point of sale system an omnichannel cloud-based system offering ordering capabilities for point-of-sale, online, mobile and kiosk scenarios. NorthStar empowers guests to self-order and pay at their own pace, and is used by full-service, fast-casual restaurants and anywhere food is enjoyed.
