This ship entered service at the end of 2002. She was originally intended to operate with Star Cruises under the name SuperStar Scorpio, but it was decided that she would be delivered to Star's subsidiary, Norwegian Cruise Line as Norwegian Dawn.
Norwegian Dawn was the first NCL vessel to utilize hull art. Originally planned as a way to further promote the vessel, the concept was extremely well received and hull art was incorporated to most other NCL vessels, with the exception of those vessels scheduled to transition out of the fleet within the next few years.
Norwegian Dawn underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment in May 2011. Refurbishments include:
Relocation and total renovation of the Gift Shop, Art Gallery, Photo Gallery, Conference Center, Spinnaker Lounge and Blue Lagoon Restaurant; Enhancements to the Dawn Club Casino including new layout, fixed furniture and carpet; Aesthetic improvements in the Fitness area and Garden Café; Atrium Lobby refresh including new furniture in Java Café and plant replacement; Complete refurbishment of crew dining and recreation areas.
