Norwegian Jade

Jewel-class Norwegian Jade given even more sparkle

Norwegian Cruise Line’s Jewel-class ship Norwegian Jade remerged from an extensive renovation as an essentially new vessel in March 2017.

During a three-week dry dock she received enhancements to every part of the on board experience, from two brand new restaurants and two new bars and lounges, updated design and décor in many public spaces, and a refurbishment of all staterooms.

Every stateroom on the ship was enhanced, while guests sailing in The Haven, Norwegian’s ship-within-a-ship luxury suite concept, now enjoy a more modern chic atmosphere in all suites and villas. There was also a complete refurbishment of the ship’s Haven Courtyard.

Guests of the ship’s top villas and suites can soak up the sun in style one of the Haven’s four new plush cabanas nestled at the top of the ship or take a dip in the newly refinished pool surrounded by modern furnishings and new artwork.

There are two new restaurants, O’Sheehan’s Bar & Grill and The Pit Stop, as well as redesigned spaces in many of the ship’s existing restaurants. The Pit Stop, a newly installed concept for Norwegian Jade, will serve up poolside fun and fare in a 1950s-style American diner atmosphere.

Moderno Churrascaria received an upgrade and a new home on deck 13 allowing for stunning panoramic views of the ocean enhanced by new flooring, wall coverings and upgraded furniture. The ever popular Cagney’s Steakhouse, La Cucina, Norwegian’s signature Italian specialty restaurant, and Teppanyaki - Norwegian’s Japanese hibachi grill restaurant - have also been modernised and upgraded as well as the complimentary favourites Jasmine Garden and the Garden Café.

Those looking to dance the night away aboard Norwegian Jade can now do so in the chic new Bliss Ultra Lounge on deck seven, which has the feel of an upscale Miami nightclub. Guests who wish to indulge in an exotic cocktail can enjoy their favourite mojito, or opt for a flight and try them all, at the new Sugarcane Mojito Bar on deck 13 adjacent to Moderno Churrascaria, a Norwegian fan favourite since the concept debuted on Norwegian Getaway in 2014.  Norwegian Jade’s Spinnaker Lounge also received a complete redesign.

The Atrium, the heart of the action on Norwegian Jade, has been enhanced with a refreshed look and décor brought to life with an eye-catching, custom-designed marquee chandelier, as well as new modern so guests can relax in a contemporary lounge atmosphere while enjoying all of the ship’s excitement.

Norwegian Jade also offers guests easier ways to view and purchase mementos of their cruise holiday with an upgraded Photo Gallery featuring new individual digital monitors and larger photo display panels.

The ship’s main pool deck was also touched by this extensive refurbishment, with the addition of glistening new lighting fixtures as well as new flooring and tiling around the pool and whirlpools.

Norwegian Jade now offers fitness enthusiasts the opportunity to work up a sweat with all-new TechnoGym fitness equipment and new rubber flooring, ideal for weightlifting and plyometric workouts. Junior cruisers aboard Norwegian Jade can now enjoy playtime with new floorings in Splash Academy that include new noise reducing mats so kids are free to play into the evening hours.
