Norwegian Cruise Line will be spending around £30 million revamping the 94,000 gross tonne Norwegian Jade ready for her Southampton debut in spring 2017.
Launched in 2006 the ship originally sailed as Pride of Hawaii until she was renamed Norwegian Jade in 2008. The refurbishment will see many of the Hawaiian-themed interiors replaced and guests will be able to enjoy exciting new on board amenities.
The interior of the ship will be completely transformed essentially creating a brand new cruise ship for the UK cruise market. Among the many new features is a recreation of Liverpool’s iconic The Cavern Club, which can also be found on board Norwegian Epic. New contemporary carpets and furniture will be added throughout the ship giving her a modern fresh look.
The refurbishment of Norwegian Jade is part of Norwegian Cruise Line’s Edge programme, which will see over £300 million spent updating the older ships in its fleet and bringing them up to the same standards as it newest ships.
Norwegian Jade will arrive in to Southampton on 13 May 2017 and will offer cruises to the Norwegian Fjords, Northern Europe, Iceland and the British Isles.
