$100 Million in Renovations for Norwegian Spirit

In early January 2020, Norwegian Spirit will sail to Marseille, France not for a cruise vacation, but rather an expensive facelift. The ship, part of Norwegian Cruise Line’s fleet, is undergoing $100 million in renovations over a 40-day dry dock period. Crews will work to update nearly everything on the ship, including 14 new venues, new staterooms, an expanded spa and more.

Norwegian Spirit Renovations

With a number of brand new ships getting rave reviews, Norwegian Cruise Line wanted to bring an older ship into the modern age by outfitting it with much of the fun and amenities found on their newest builds. Onda, by Scarpetta, serving up authentic Italian flavors, will be the biggest addition to the on board restaurants.
