Norwegian Dawn drydock to add 58 staterooms

Norwegian Dawn drydock to add 58 staterooms
During a nearly month-long May drydock at Grand Bahama Shipyard, Norwegian Dawn will gain 58 new staterooms, including 28 suites, bringing the double-occupancy capacity of the vessel to 2,332 passengers. 

The 2002-built ship will add four deluxe owner’s suites, 14 family suites, 10 family suites with balconies and 30 inside staterooms.

The work will stretch from May 1-27 and will entail more extensive changes, to be announced later, said Crane Gladding, svp revenue management and passenger services, during a Norwegian Cruise Line webcast today.

The deluxe owner’s suites (Cat. SA), will be located under the bridge for big forward sea views. They will have dimensions of 667sq ft to 732sq ft each.

Each family accommodation will sleep up to six people and will offer a spacious bathroom.

The family suites (Cat. SJ), will have floor-to-ceiling windows and a high-deck location near the pool. Dimensions will be 408sq ft to 452sq ft. The family balcony suites will be essentially the same size and add large balconies built out from the ship’s superstructure.

The new inside accommodations (Cat. IC) will measure 142sq ft to 174sq ft.

The suites are going into the areas currently occupied by the Spinnaker Lounge and the movie theater. Those facilities will be moved and upgraded, Gladding said, providing for a better flow and more efficient layout.

The new staterooms will go on sale for departures after Sept. 16. These include a couple Boston-Bermuda sailings and 10- and 11-night Southern Caribbean voyages from Miami.
