Norwegian Cruise Line has revealed details about Norwegian Spirit’s upcoming renovation. The $100 million revitalization is part of ‘The Norwegian Edge program’.
Norwegian Spirit will enter dry dock in Marseille, France on Jan. 2, 2020 for an over $100 million revitalization. As part of the nearly 40-day renovation, the ship will emerge featuring 14 new venues, additional staterooms and an expanded Mandara Spa.
The revitalized Norwegian Spirit will feature new complimentary dining venues and an additional main dining room, Taste; the 24-hour eatery, The Local Bar and Grill; the all-day dining outlet, Garden Café; the Great Outdoors Bar; and Waves Pool Bar.
Making their debut are Bliss Ultra Lounge and Spinnaker Lounge, which features the Humidor Cigar Lounge.
Splash Academy, the children’s waterpark, will be replaced with the adults-only retreat Spice H2O, a daytime lounge featuring two new hot tubs and a dedicated bar, which transforms into an after-hours entertainment venue.
Mandara Spa will double in size to nearly 7,000 square feet and include a relaxation area with heated loungers, a new Jacuzzi room, a sauna, steam room and water therapy experience. The expansion of Pulse Fitness Center will allow guests to begin or maintain their fitness routine while at sea.
In addition, the Company is announcing the introduction of Onda by Scarpetta on board Norwegian Spirit, joining the portfolio of critically acclaimed Scarpetta restaurants in New York City and the Hamptons, N.Y.; Miami; Las Vegas; Philadelphia; Newport, R.I.; London; and aboard Norwegian Encore debuting this November.
The name Scarpetta is derived from the Italian expression, ‘fare la Scarpetta,’ which means to savor a meal to the last bite. Onda, or ‘wave’ in Italian, will adapt the same ethos and bring the charm and effortless elegance of its urbane Scarpetta sister to the sea.
Norwegian Spirit will sail out of dry dock in February 2020 with a new contemporary hull art and offer some of the most sought-after itineraries around the world including 10 new ports of call. More information about Norwegian Cruise Line ships and their itineraries on www.ncl.com.
