BTB Cruise The Ship
As a Breakaway Plus-class ship, Norwegian Joy – while just two years old – just completed a three week drydock in Singapore and a three-day wet dock in Seattle earlier this month. The goal was to ensure that it had the appropriate spaces to appeal to the North American market. Originally, this vessel was built to source Chinese business.
Many renovated public spaces mirror those on Norwegian Bliss. For example, the renovation added introduced 13 new dining, bar and lounge venues onboard, many the signature Norwegian eateries that North American guests already know.
Cruisers and repeat Norwegian cruisers will find everything from Le Bistro to Teppanyaki and the Food Republic, plus other specialty eateries and the main dining venues – the Manhattan Room, Taste and Savor.
Norwegian Joy also has the Waterfront, an outdoor walking, dining and bar space – typically restaurants that flow outside with al fresco dining options.
Newly added is the American Diner with a 1950s automobile theme; that’s different than Margaritaville, located in that space on Norwegian Bliss.
In addition, the ship received a redesigned pool deck along with widening of the go-kart speedway and an expansion of the Observation Lounge.
