“We are continuing the momentum and starting 2019 with the reintroduction of Norwegian Sky.  She returned home to Miami unveiling new designs and experiences that showcase our dedication to providing guests with meaningful experiences across our fleet.”

The new venues added during the dry dock were The Local Bar & Grill, La Cucina for classic Italian fare, Sugarcane Mojito Bar, Topsiders poolside bar, Bliss Ultra Lounge and Spinnaker Lounge, and a full-service Starbucks licensed store. The Pinnacle Lounge and Sushi Bar are also two new venues which are firsts in the fleet.

There were all kinds of enhancements around the ship including the complimentary Palace and Crossings Main Dining Rooms, Garden Café and The Great Outdoors. The two specialty restaurants Cagney’s and Le Bistro were also given some attention. The atrium was refreshed with a new look along with the pool deck area.
