Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Pearl sailed into her seasonal homeport of Miami on 27 February following a two-week interior refurbishment.

Refurbished in dry dock as part of The Norwegian Edge enhancement programme, Norwegian Pearl’s 1,197 staterooms now feature new décor, furniture, carpets, headboards, TVs and USB outlets. More than 2,200 pieces of artwork were also added in guest accommodation, Cagney’s Restaurant and The Haven, Norwegian’s signature ship-within-a-ship luxury suite complex. The Haven Courtyard was renovated with new furniture and cabanas, as well as updated finishes on the decks, pool and hot tubs. The venue’s suites and villas were also modernised with fresh wallpaper, carpets, drapery, artwork, furniture and finishes on the ceilings and balconies.

Restaurants were also updated during the dry dock, including Cagney’s Steakhouse, which has upgraded carpets, artwork, furniture upholstery and window treatments. Moderno Churrascaria has been equipped with new tables and chairs, wall laminates, new granite bar tops in the bar and salad bar areas and a glass door at the entrance. Meanwhile, O’Sheehan’s Bar & Grill now has modern flooring and a refurbished bar with new granite tops, bar back shelving, ceiling and lighting fixtures. Norwegian also upgraded wall finishes throughout the restaurant, adding extra tables and chairs and banquet seating.

Other highlights include updated flooring and whirlpools on the pool deck, and replacement flooring in both the Great Outdoors bar and Sky High bar. The latter also received new tables, chairs, bar stools and a bar façade.

“Norwegian Pearl is one of our most beloved ships and 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 CEO. “Through The Norwegian Edge programme, 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.”

Norwegian Pearl will continue to homeport in PortMiami until April, offering various itineraries that include roundtrips through the Panama Canal. The ship will then reposition to Seattle for the summer, sailing seven-day cruises to Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan in Alaska and Victoria, British Columbia.
