Norwegian Cruise Line provided further details about Norwegian Spirit’s upcoming refurbishment as part of The Norwegian Edge program.
Norwegian Spirit is scheduled to enter dry dock in Marseille on January 2, 2020, for an over US$100 million renovation. As part of the nearly 40-day revitalization, the vessel will emerge featuring 14 brand new venues, an expanded Mandara Spa, and additional staterooms.
New complimentary dining venues will be offered including an additional MDR (main dining room), Taste; the all-day dining outlet, Garden Cafe; the 24-hour eatery, The Local Bar & Grill; Waves Pool Bar, and the Great Outdoors Bar. Making their debut are the Spinnaker Lounge (featuring the Humidor Cigar Lounge) and Bliss Ultra Lounge.
The kids' waterpark, Splash Academy, will be replaced with the adults-only Spice H2O, a daytime lounge with 2 new hot tubs and a dedicated bar, transforming into an after-hours entertainment venue. The ship's Mandara Spa will double in size to about 7,000 ft2 and include a new Jacuzzi room, sauna, steam room, water therapy experience, and a relaxation area with heated loungers. The Pulse Fitness Center's expansion will allow passengers to begin or maintain a fitness routine.
Norwegian Spirit will debut contemporary hull art.
In addition, NCL announced the introduction of Onda by Scarpetta, joining the portfolio of acclaimed Scarpetta restaurants in NYC and the Hamptons, Las Vegas, Miami, Philadelphia, London, Newport RI and on Norwegian Encore debuting in November 2019.
With extended itineraries of 8 to 24 days visiting some of the most desired destinations across 3 continents – Europe, Asia, and Africa, including ten new ports of call – Norwegian Spirit will emerge from drydock in February 2020 featuring more sophisticated offerings.
