Default Nordic Empress

I've heard the Nordic Empress is going into Dry Dock around the 3rd week in January. Does anyone have an idea why?

Hi D,
Most ships do at some point go into drydock for some work, most likely the case with Nordic Empress.

D, Donna is right ships used to go into drydock 1-2 weeks every year to have the hull stripped and repainted, propellors checked and if neccesary repaired, and any other work that cannot be done while the ship is in service. New paints and other reasons have changed the drydock timing to 2-3 years for most ships.
Kinda like taking your car in for a tune up and paint job but on a bigger scale.

hope this answers your question
