After a three-week refresh in Rotterdam and a repositioning voyage from Southampton, UK to Miami in February, the revitalised Norwegian Joy revealed new amenities including a brand-new Thermal Suite in the Mandara Spa & Salon – now the largest within the Breakaway-Plus class ships.

The 3,802-passenger ship, which launched in 2017, also features an expanded adults-only Vibe Beach Club with added private luxe cabanas.

Norwegian Cruise Line President David J. Herrera said Norwegian Joy’s latest enhancements came about from guest feedback.

“We strive to evolve the onboard experience based on our guests’ wants and needs and this is another example of how we put them first in our decision-making,” he said.

“From an expanded spa to additional spacious accommodations, with these new updates, we have given our guests more space to relax, unplug and enjoy their time on board with their loved ones.”

In addition to the ship’s new offerings, Norwegian Joy contains 21 bars and lounges, 16 restaurants, an oceanfront promenade and onboard activities such as the Norwegian Joy Speedway, an Aqua Park, a mini-golf course and entertainment.
