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

NORWEGIAN SPIRIT was built as SUPERSTAR LEO for the Asian market. She transferred to NCL in May 2004.

A major drydock with stateroom and public areas upgrades that was planned for Jan 2017 was cancelled by NCL.
