Norwegian Cruise Line’s 2,018-passenger Norwegian Spirit and 2,402-passenger Norwegian Jade will be receiving multi-million-dollar technical and facility upgrades in dry docks over coming months.
“While we have the youngest fleet in the industry, we still want to continuously enhance our ships,” said Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s chief executive officer.
Norwegian Spirit began a 13-day dry-dock upgrade in Mobile, Alabama, on September 25. Renovations will include the installation of wireless internet throughout the ship, the replacement of 5, 945 square metres of carpet, enhancement of the Stardust Theater, improved accessibility to guests rooms, the painting of the hull and various maintenance upgrades.
When Norwegian Jade goes in for her 12-day dry dock stint in Marseille, France on November 26, 2011, she will receive, among other things, a Brazilian steakhouse, Moderno Churrascia, a new propeller and thrust bearings and a new coat of hull paint.
