Norwegian Cruise Line

Completely redesigned for the 2020 cruise season kick-off, the Norwegian Spirit is one of the oldest cruise ships in the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet. This vessel is most often seen in the African, Asian, and Mediterranean cruises, with special service to other regions of the world. Although it is among the smallest of the cruise line's ships, measuring in at approximately 880 feet in total length, it boasts a spacious interior that can accommodate nearly 3,000 guests and crew members. The staterooms have been renovated with all new finishings and furniture to give them a clean and contemporary look that promotes relaxation while you enjoy a memorable voyage at sea. With world-class restaurants and retail shops, live entertainment performed in a state-of-the-art theater facility, and a wide array of recreational activities, you are sure to have as much fun on the ship as you will exploring the ports of Asia and Africa. Once you are done with your daytime adventures, head over to Galaxy of the Stars Observation Lounge, Champagne Champions Champagne Bar, or Henry's Pub for a signature cocktail or glass of fine wine and make a toast to enjoying the good life.
