If you think you know Norwegian Star, think again. Following a nearly three-week dry dock in Barcelona, Spain, Norwegian Star underwent extensive enhancements to its staterooms, public spaces, restaurants, bars and lounges as part of The Norwegian Edge program. The ship, built in 2001, also unveiled three new venues: Sky High Bar, Bliss Ultra Lounge and Spice H2O.
Here’s a look the incredible dry dock process from start to finish:
About Norwegian Star’s Dry Dock
Sky High Bar showcases a new design complete with an updated bar and seating for close to 120 guests. Replacing Bier Garten, the outdoor bar and lounge offers the best views on board.
Bliss Ultra Lounge replaces Spinnaker Lounge for late-night entertainment and now boasts a light, neutral color palette and a complete redesign with new carpet, custom loungers, seating, an upgraded bar and artwork.
For the first time, Norwegian Star will offer the adults-only enclave, Spice H2O. This well-appointed venue features a private pool, hot tubs, full bar, and uninterrupted ocean views. During the day, it makes an ideal spot for sunbathing, and at night, it transforms into an open-air lounge with live entertainment, DJs, and energizing themed nights.
All 1,174 staterooms and suites were outfitted with USB ports, enhanced with over 1,500 works of art and upgraded with new carpet, headboards and select furniture. The three-bedroom garden villas which feature private deck areas and can accommodate up to seven people were also remodeled to offer a light and airy design.
Additional enhancements were made to the bars and lounges, restaurants and public spaces including Atrium Café & Bar, Garden Café, and the main dining rooms. A VIP section was also added in the Casino.
