Norwegian Dawn To Re-enter Service With Improvements

Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled the host of upgrades guests can expect onboard its 2,224-passenger Norwegian Dawn when the ship returns to service in Boston on 27 May 2011. The 8-year old vessel is currently undergoing a drydock refurbishment in Freeport that will see more staterooms and suites added, a new specialty restaurant and upgrades to public spaces.


58 New Staterooms and Suites

Available from the 16 September 2011 sailing, the new cabins include 4 Deluxe Owner’s Suites ranging from 62 to 68 square meters. The ship will also feature 14 Family Suites and 10 Family Suites with Balcony that accommodate 6 guests, as well as 18 Inside Staterooms. Together with the new accommodations, existing staterooms and suites onboard will also feature new flatscreen televisions.


Moderno Churrascaria

The popular Brazilian steakhouse first introduced on Norwegian Epic continues its expansion across the fleet with a third outpost. Located in the space previously occupied by Salsa, the Tex-Mex restaurant, Moderno Churrascaria onboard the Norwegian Dawn will feature a large salad bar and skewered meats served tableside by the passadors.


Public Space Upgrades

With the addition of new accommodations and concepts, Norwegian Cruise Line has altered the vessel’s layout and relocated several public rooms including the Blue Lagoon restaurant, Spinnaker Lounge, Conference Center, Art Gallery, Photo Gallery and Gift Shop. Together with the Kid’s Crew and Teen Club, these spaces will be completely renovated to offer an improved experience for guests.


The ship’s makeover will also include a refresh of the Atrium Lobby with new furniture in the Java Cafe and replacement of plants. The Dawn Club Casino receives a new layout, fixed furniture and carpeting, while the Fitness Area and Garden Cafe will undergo aesthetic improvements.


Norwegian Dawn is the second of 3 Norwegian Cruise Line ships scheduled for improvements this year, joining the revitalized Norwegian Sun. The ship will operate 7-day Bermuda voyages from Boston through 21 October 2011 before repositioning to Miami for a series of 10- and 11-day Southern Caribbean cruises in the winter.
