NCL’s Norwegian Dawn (2002/92,250gt) has undergone a major refit, which included the installation of 58 new accommodation units, including four deluxe owner’s suites, ten family suites with balconies and 30 inside staterooms. Her double occupancy capacity is now 2,332 passengers. The suites have been located on Deck 12 above the bridge in the areas previously occupied by the Spinnaker Lounge, which has been relocated aft on Deck 7, while the cinema has been eliminated altogether. The work was carried out at the Grand Bahama Shipyard in Freeport between 1 and 27 May. Norwegian Dawn’s older sister, Norwegian Star (2001/91,740), had similar work undertaken last year.
Norwegian Dawn has resumed her schedule of weekly cruises from Boston to Bermuda, which comes to an end at the end of October, after which she repositions to Miami for ten- and 11-day sailings to ports in the SouthernCaribbean.
