Following a three-week drydock in Freeport, Bahamas, the Norwegian Sky has returned to her homeport of Miami showcasing new venues, updated spaces and completely redesigned staterooms and corridors, according to a press release.

“Last year was an exciting year with the record-breaking launch of Norwegian Bliss, the announcement of Norwegian Joy’s redeployment to the U.S. and the unveiling of four ships which benefited from our comprehensive Norwegian Edge bow-to-stern refurbishment program,” said Andy Stuart, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line. “We are continuing the momentum and starting 2019 with the reintroduction of Norwegian Sky.  She returned home to Miami unveiling new designs and experiences that showcase our dedication to providing guests with meaningful experiences across our fleet.”

All food and beverage outlets were updated, and eight new venues were introduced to Norwegian Sky.
