Norwegian Dawn Sets Sail For Bermuda As A New Ship

20 Jun 2016

Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that renovations are now complete on Norwegian Dawn, following a month-long drydock that was part of the cruise line’s The Norwegian Edge $400 million fleet enhancement project.

Norwegian Cruise Line’s ship returns to Boston for the summer season after an extensive month-long renovation that virtually rebuilt the vessel, adding new restaurants, bars and lounges, updated design and décor in all public spaces and a refurbishment of all staterooms including a complete makeover of the ship’s signature Garden Villas, some of the largest suites at sea.

“As with each of the ship refurbishments in the Norwegian Edge program, this was not your average dry dock,” said Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line president and chief operating officer. “Norwegian Dawn was brought down to the steel in many spaces and rebuilt to evoke the look and feel of the newest Norwegian ships, allowing guests sailing on her to enjoy all of the freedom and flexibility that only Norwegian offers, along with a more premium experience from bow to stern.”

Wine lovers now have a chance to sip and savor their favorite vintages at The Cellars, a Michael Mondavi Family Wine Bar, a modern, upscale wine bar offering tastings and engaging educational events and Sugarcane Mojito Bar will serve up more than 15 varieties of mojitos in a new modern lounge area.

Every stateroom on the ship was enhanced during this renovation, receiving new carpets, bedding, drapery, artwork and furniture.

As with the recent enhancements to several other Norwegian ships, Norwegian Dawn’s public spaces, elevators and restrooms were refreshed from top to bottom to receive an updated look with new contemporary design.

The ship’s Atrium now features a new modern and clean look with plush carpet and new lighting, chic furniture and a new lounge seating area.

The ship’s pool deck was completely refurbished to create a brighter and livelier atmosphere for sun-seekers with new decking and new awnings to give the open deck a sleek, yacht-like feel. Kids and kids at heart sailing aboard Norwegian Dawn can now enjoy an upgraded Entourage teen space and video arcade with built-in entertainment areas.

Norwegian Dawn will sail from Boston to Bermuda each week through October, spending three nights in port, and from New Orleans to the Western Caribbean — including a call at Harvest Caye, Belize, the Caribbean’s premier resort-style port of call — during the winter season, beginning in November.
