The ship has been in the dry dock in Singapore for two weeks as workers refresh accommodation, entertainment venues and premium staterooms. “Norwegian Jewel’s complete renovation showcases our dedication to providing guests with quality experiences across the fleet and around the world,” Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line says. “Not only are we revealing updated designs and accommodations throughout the ship, but guests will also enjoy new venues and incredibly exciting shows, one of which premieres for the first time on Norwegian Jewel.” The two new show are Velvet and Rock You Tonight. Velvet is a disco at sea. This exclusive show is a stellar combination of circus acrobatics, cabaret and burlesque elements. It features Brenda Edwards of X Factor UK as the lead, with The Voice finalist, Frenchie Davis to follow. Rock You Tonight showcases a medley of songs from the best bands of the 70s, including Queen, Journey and The Who. All 1188 staterooms have been upgraded with new televisions and USB outlets, as well as new carpet, artwork and furniture. The Haven by Norwegian received updates to the courtyard, additional cabanas on the sun deck and new finishes, carpets, tiles, drapes, artwork and furniture for all suites and villas. The ship also boasts two new Haven Deluxe Owner’s Suites featuring large balconies, and two private jacuzzies for up to four guests. As the heart of the ship, the Atrium has been revitalised. Look up as you enter to see The Norwegian Jewel’s custom-design chandelier. Then look down to see the updated the floors and refurbished the reception area. The shore excursion desk areas now have relaxed banquette seating and a large TV screen. Two new venues have replaced Norwegian Jewel’s Sky High Bar and FYZZ Cabaret Lounge. The Pit Stop is an all-American bar, retrofitted with vintage license plates, gas station signage and other classic car elements of the 1950s. Bliss Ultra Lounge offers late-night entertainment in a modern and upscale setting, with more intimate seating options. The Norwegian Jewel offers seven to 19-day itineraries. The ship will spend summer 2018 and autumn 2019 cruising from Sydney, Hong Kong and Singapore. After that, she will join Norwegian Bliss and Norwegian Joy in Alaska for the northern hemisphere summer.
