A “New” Norwegian Joy Heads to Alaska

The Norwegian Joy, launched in 2017 and built specifically for the Chinese market, will be refitted for a primarily North American market.  The goal of the $50 million refurbishment is to make Norwegian Joy as close to resembling sister ship Norwegian Bliss as possible.

There’s to be a swapping out some high-end designer boutiques and dining venues, adding the go-karts and laser tag, shrinking the casino as well as adding a beer-themed bar and a Godiva shop.  In addition, Norwegian Cruise Line is supplementing their always excellent entertainment with some additional shows!

Debuting for the first time at sea, 'Footloose,' based on the musical-comedy dance film, follows the story of a Chicago teen with a love of dancing, who moves to a small town with a ban on rock 'n’ roll. Featuring the hit music of Grammy Award-winning artist Kenny Loggins, 'Footloose' is a show you won’t want to miss.

As part of Norwegian’s specialty dining performances, 'Wine Lovers: The Musical,' known as the world’s first wine-tasting musical production, provides the opportunity to taste a variety of wines at a lunch club-style experience while watching a comedy about the joys of wine and love. The show will be performed at the Social Comedy and Night Club with wine served to passengers 21 and older.

Elements promises to bring the wow factor with its merging of high-flying acrobatics, music, dance and even magic! This show is a truly interactive, spectacular journey thru the four elements of life. The audience can even feel the wind, water, fire from their seats in the theatre.

Norwegian Joy will begin her Alaska-bound season on April 27th, roundtrip from Seattle. Ports visited include Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Victoria-BC and a day spent cruising Glacier Bay National Park.
