The ship last drydock was in Jan 2021.

Most modern cruise ships need to be dry docked for inspection, maintenance and class surveys every five years and once they reach 15 years of age they need to be dry docked at least twice within a five-year period. Dry docks typically last up to 14 days at a cost of up to $2 million per day and involve regular maintenance including hull cleaning, exterior painting of the structure, inspection of pipes, restoration of exterior deck flooring, and installation of enhanced HVAC filter systems

During 2011 major drydock new Suites and Inside cabins were added to deck 12 forward. Moderno was added to deck 8. LaCucina was added to deck 6.

The ship went under a major drydock in Jun 2016. During that drydock OSheehans was added to Deck 8 midship in place of Blue Lagoon. Moderno was moved to deck 13 and replaced Star Bar. LeBistro and LaCucina switched places. Spinnaker lounge became Bliss Ultra Lounge. Los Lobos Cantina, a Mexican themed restaurant, was added to part of the Garden Cafe. Public areas and staterooms received new carpeting and fixtures.
