Norwegian Cruise Line has completed the refurbishments of three of its cruise ships, the company announced this week.
The company has completed bow-to-stern enhancements on Norwegian Sun, Norwegian Star and Norwegian Breakaway.
The upgrades are part of the company’s Norwegian Edge renovation program that includes new designs and venues, from the Los Lobos Cantina Mexican restaurant to the adults-only Spice H20 and Syd Norman’s Pour House.
“What a year this has been for us at Norwegian Cruise Line,” said Andy Stuart, the brand’s president and chief executive officer. “Not only did we introduce our latest and record-breaking ship, Norwegian Bliss, and announce the redeployment of her sister ship Norwegian Joy, but we are now unveiling our newly revitalized ships, Norwegian Breakaway, Sun and Star. This is a testament to how invested we are in our guests’ experience. Although we are one of the youngest fleets in the industry, we are very committed to The Norwegian Edge program which allows us to remain consistent, relevant and exciting.”
Norwegian Star and Sun, which were both built in 2001, underwent three-week dry docks in Barcelona that added three new venues: Sky High Bar, Bliss Ultra Lounge and Spice H20.
Norwegian Breakaway, which was built in 2013, added the aforementioned Syd Norman’s Pour House, along with smaller upgrades like a new carpet in all 2,014 staterooms and suites and a full transformation of the gift shop, among other changes.
