Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Pearl sailed into her seasonal homeport of Miami following a two week dry dock where every stateroom and many of the ship’s public areas were revitalized.
“Norwegian Pearl is one of our most beloved ships. With this dry dock we wanted to provide her with a refreshed, clean and modern onboard atmosphere while maintaining the ship’s overall charm and flexibility that our guests enjoy so much,” said Andy Stuart, Norwegian Cruise Line president and chief executive officer. “Through The Norwegian Edge™ program we are continuing to heavily invest in our fleet to ensure that guests have a consistent experience across all Norwegian ships and the freedom to create their ideal cruise vacation.”
Every one of Norwegian Pearl’s 1,197 staterooms was touched in this dry dock modernization. Each stateroom features new furniture, new carpeting, new headboards, new televisions as well as the addition of USB outlets where guests can charge their handheld devices. Across the ship, more than 2,200 pieces of art work were installed for guests to enjoy in their staterooms as well as in Cagney’s Restaurant and The Haven.
Guests who sail in The Haven by Norwegian®, Norwegian’s ship-within-a-ship luxury suite complex, aboard Norwegian Pearl will now enjoy a completely refurbished Haven Courtyard with new finishes on the decks, pool and hot tubs as well as new furniture including the addition of new cabanas. The Haven’s suites and villas also received modernizations with new wall paper, new furniture, new finishes on the ceilings and balconies, new carpets, new drapery and artwork.
