May 2017 -Norwegian Cruise Line’s NORWEGIAN JADE has begun cruises from her seasonal homeport of Tampa as an essentially new vessel recently, following a three week dry dock where she received enhancements to every part of the onboard 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. NORWEGIAN JADE’s extensive renovation is a part of The Norwegian Edge™, an investment program that sets a high standard of excellence encompassing the entire guest experience across Norwegian’s fleet. Moderno Churrascaria received a new home on deck 13 and features a new upscale glass door entrance, floor-to-ceiling windows, allowing for stunning panoramic views of the ocean enhanced by new flooring, wall coverings and upgraded furniture.
Oct. 19-2018 Norwegian Jade, currently alongside at the Port of San Juan, has a mechanical issue that will cut short the 10-day cruise that sailed from PortMiami on Friday. Norwegian Cruise Line did not specify the nature of the problem but said it does not affect safety, and all on-board services are fully operational.

The 2006-built ship underwent extensive work, including the overhaul of thrusters, stabilizers and Azipods, at Grand Bahama Shipyard in 2017. An exhaust gas cleaning system consisting of five scrubbers, one per engine, was also retrofitted last year.
