Thanks for visiting!  The following list represents combined research from cruisecritic.com and is not intended to be 100% accurate nor all encompassing (UNOFFICIAL!).  While drydock dates have been confirmed with vessel schedules, activities performed during these dates are purely speculative based on duration, available future deck plans, and logical upgrades.

To respond to questions, "Minor, freshening" refers to soft element upgrades like carpets, linens, wares as well as painting, polishing, deep cleaning.  Ship system maintenance is also performed during these dry dock periods, something akin to a tune-up for a car.
