Having announced the names of their two newest ships, Norwegian Breakaway and Norwegian Getaway, last week, Norwegian Cruise Lines have now announced plans to give the Norwegian Jade and Norwegian Spirit a multi-million dollar facelift.
The Norwegian Spirit will go into dry-dock for 13 days on 25th September in Mobile, Alabama, with the Norwegian Jade following suit on 26th November, where she will spend 11 days in Marseille, France.
Kevin Sheehan, Norwegian Cruise Line’s CEO said: "While we have the youngest fleet in the industry, we still want to continuously enhance our ships... With the dry docks of Norwegian Spirit and Norwegian Jade, we will have completed enhancements on four ships this year, a major investment for the company."
The 2,018-passenger Norwegian Spirit is set to receive renovations that include outfitting the entire ship with Wi-Fi, new carpets, the addition of flat screen televisions and upgrading the Stardust Theatre and the ship’s action station restaurant Raffles. The slightly larger, 93,000 tonne, Norwegian Jade will undergo new enhancements that include the addition of NCL's signature restaurant, Moderno Churrascaria, she will also benefit from new carpets and tiles throughout the ship and will have the hull painted among other maintenance updates.
