Launched in 2005, Norwegian Spirit is a relative baby in NCL’s impressive fleet. Despite this, she has quickly forged a glowing reputation and this 77,000 tonne, 880 foot ship continues to carry her 1,966 passengers around the Caribbean, Canada, Bermuda and New England.
Norwegian Spirit – What to do
If you have brought the family, the kids can be left to their own devices in one of Norwegian Spirit’s children’s activity centres. The younger ones can be entrusted to the capable Norwegian Cruise Line staff at Charlie’s Child Care Centre, while older children will doubtless enjoy the Celebrity Teen Disco. The Buccaneer’s Wet and Wild Children’s Swimming Pool will also give them hours of fun.
For the grown-ups, there is the option of something sporty such as basketball or jogging, a trip to the Roman spa and fitness centre, or a crack at Maharajah’s Casino. Get ready for your evening’s entertainment at Oscar’s Hair and Beauty Salon, before heading out to one of Norwegian Spirit’s many bars. The Galaxy of the Stars Observation Lounge is an excellent spot to catch the glorious sunset, and you can either go down the champagne route at Champagne Charlie’s or treat yourself to a pint of British beer at Henry’s Pub, complete with darts and traditional fish and chips. Shanghai Bar is a sports bar with an Asian theme, while Maharini’s Lounge and Night Club is worth noting for those who want to dance the night away.
Norwegian Spirit – Where to eat
From Bratwurst in the Bier Garten to tortellini at La Trattoria, Norwegian Spirit has something for you. Fancy French fare is dished up at Le Bistro, while a no nonsense steak and chips is available from Cagney’s Steakhouse. Shogun Asian Restaurant is on hand to cater for all your Japanese, Thai and Chinese cuisine desires.
The intimate surroundings of the Garden Room are the perfect setting for Norwegian Spirit’s signature five-course culinary journey, while elsewhere the Windows Main Dining Room takes its name from the fabulous panoramic view that serves as a stunning setting for any meal. If you are feeling peckish during the night, you can choose to head down for a sandwich at Blue Lagoon, or simply pick up the phone and take advantage of Norwegian Spirit’s 24-hour room service.
The Staterooms of Norwegian Spirit
The Owner’s Suites and Penthouses are the stars here, complete with private balcony and dining area, exquisite queen-sized beds and fantastic en suite bathroom facilities. You can also call on the services of the butler or concierge should you require them. Balcony Staterooms offer marvellous sea views from their cosy private balconies, while Oceanview Staterooms provide a window to your pleasant surroundings whilst comfortably accommodating up to four people. The Inside Staterooms offer an affordable alternative, providing all the space and comfort you need to make of the most of your NCL cruise.
