Norwegian Cruise Line has the Edge

Norwegian Edge is not the name of the next new ship, but is the term coined by NCL to describe the major programme of investment and enhancement of its fleet and overall product.

Although the name has only recently been announced, the programme actually began in October 2015 with the refit of Norwegian Epic, followed by that of Norwegian Gem in November.

The programme largely focuses on refurbishing or rebranding public rooms, but outdoor spaces are being enhanced too, with particular emphasis on the Haven areas. In spring 2016 Pride of America and Norwegian Sun will have their refits, followed in the summer by Norwegian Dawn.

Autumn and winter will see attention given to Norwegian Spirit, Sky and Pearl, while the last ship in the current programme; Norwegian Jade, will be dealt with in spring 2017.

Never one to miss an opportunity to extract money from passengers, NCL is introducing an extra-charge à la carte menu in the so-called complimentary main dining rooms. The next new ship to be delivered to NCL will be the as-yet-unnamed, second vessel of the Breakaway Plus class, which is destined for the Chinese market.
