Norweigan Jade Returns to Service With New Renovations

Norwegian Jade's refurbished atrium

Following a three-week dry dock, Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Jade has returned to its Tampa seasonal homeport following a major renovation project. The ship received enhancements to every part of the onboard experience, including two new restaurants, two new bars and lounges, updated design and decor in several public spaces, and a refurbishment of all staterooms. The renovation is part of The Norwegian Edge, a fleet-wide investment program announced early last year

Norwegian Jade returns from drydock ahead of its summer season, the brand's first-ever complete season sailing from Hamburg, Germany, to the Norwegian Fjords, with embarkation also available in the United Kingdom. Guests aboard can now enjoy two new restaurants, as well as redesigned spaces in the ship's existing restaurants.

Norwegian Jade is currently sailing the final part of its winter season, cruising from Tampa to the western Caribbean. On April 30, the ship will journey across the Atlantic to its summer homeports of Southampton and Hamburg, where it will sail the Norwegian Fjords, as well as Norway and North Cape itineraries.
