Norwegian Spirit Cruises

(from 20 verified customers)

Norwegian Spirit was launched in 1998 and received the most extensive bow-to-stern modernisation in Norwegian Cruise Line’s history in February 2020, making her look and feel like one of the newest ships navigating the high seas! The refurbishment saw every stateroom modernised, every bar and lounge redesigned, all dining overhauled and a new fine Italian restaurant “Onda” by Scarpetta added. Carrying just over 2000 passengers, the ship rarely feels crowded but rather gives a warm and relaxed atmosphere, best suited to adults, although children are certainly welcome onboard.

Norwegian Spirit is a welcoming ship that goes to show that good things can come in small packages. One of 17 ships within the fleet and best known for her contemporary style on board and no fixed dining times or seating, giving you the freedom and flexibility to follow your own schedule and whims. You’ll be spoilt for choice from a stellar entertainment line up on board, offering evenings of entertainment, to relaxing and slowing down at the Mandara Spa, where you can choose from a selection of therapies. There is something for everyone to find their bliss on board, and to get into the holiday spirit. Read more

This ship has been designed with adults in mind, with no dedicated kids programs. Step aboard to explore her delicious dining options, bars, and lounges. Also introduced are new public spaces on board and modernising all cabins and suites. With indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy and activities to thrill and soothe you, there is everything you need to make your cruise onboard Norwegian Spirit the trip of a lifetime.

Onboard Experience

  • Dining

    Dining on the Norwegian Spirit

    Norwegian Spirit has seven complimentary restaurants on board, including Windows and Taste, the two main dining rooms plus five specialty restaurants, so you can dine at a different place each night of your cruise should you wish to! With Norwegian Spirit’s recent makeover, you can now enjoy the 24-hour eatery, The Local Bar and Grill, Garden Café, The Great Outdoors, and many more. Speciality dining options include Onda by Scarpetta which serves up modern Italian, Sushi, Cagney’s Steakhouse, Le Bistro offering French cuisine, which are all à la carte style dining. Dine inside or oceanside, formal or casual, or perhaps start with a dessert. Read more

    Norwegian Spirit is all about choice. Because Norwegian Cruise Line offers a fine selection of "Freestyle" dining venues, stepping out for a bite to eat is always a great idea. However, room service in the privacy of your cabin can be wonderful before or after one of those long, exciting but exhausting days on shore or aboard the Norwegian Spirit! Room Service on the Norwegian Spirit has expanded and is available 24 hours a day. Breakfast, entrees, soups, salads, specialty sandwiches, pizza, roasted chicken, pasta, burgers, and desserts are on your room service menu.

  • Bars

    Bar on the Norwegian Spirit

    There’s a bar or lounge for everyone to enjoy, no matter the time of day or your taste. Poolside you’ll find the Waves Pool Bar, perfect for a refreshing beverage as you laze up on the pool deck. For a traditional pub vibe, Henry’s Pub offers draft beer, pub fare and dart boards - you’ll think you’re in England. For a fancier tipple or a celebration, Magnum’s Champagne & Wine Bar might be more your flavour. Read more

    Keen for a dance? The Bliss Lounge offers high-energy tunes and fun cocktails to keep the party going or the Spinnaker Lounge offers live music, sweeping sea views and a dance floor. On deck 10, you’ll find an adults-only escape, Spice H20. Emulating the renowned beach parties of Ibiza, enjoy rhythmic beats, hot tubs and cold cocktails by day. At night, let your hair down and dance out under the stars. Another adult-only favourite is the Humidor Cigar Lounge. Sip on a classy whiskey cocktail as you sink into a leather wing-back while enjoying a cigar and company.

  • Entertainment

    Entertainment on the Norwegian Spirit

    Rock the night away with high energy performances and take a trip around the world with music and beats from all over the globe. When it comes to entertainment on Norwegian Spirit – there is never a dull moment. Hosted in the Stardust Theatre, enjoy Blazing Boots (a tribute to pop country show), Palace of Lights (a 1950s Cuban-inspired musical) or Elements, an exciting spectacle or music and dance. The theatre also plays host to magic and comedy shows. Read more

    More casual live music offerings can be found throughout the ship day and night. You’ll also find organised trivia games, dance classes, bingo and seminars on offer - best to check your daily cruise planner for what’s on that day. Theme nights are another favourite aboard Norwegian Cruise Line ships, with the White Hot Party for example being a glowing good time! These themed parties will be communicated through your online cruise personaliser prior to setting sail.

  • Activities

    Activities on the Norwegian Spirit

    Norwegian Spirit has enough onboard activities to fill every minute of your cruise. Being a smaller and older ship, you won’t find the latest hottest features like dodgem cars, rock climbing walls and robot bars. Instead you’ll find all the classics - pools and hot tubs and top sports deck with golf and basketball courts. The vast array of dining options, bars and lounges will also keep you occupied. Read more

    Duty-free shopping with all your favourite fragrances, fine jewellery and liquor plus a wide range of souvenirs, cosmetics, clothing and snacks shops can be found. Capture all the excitement of your cruise forever with a visit to the photo studio. The art gallery is always worth a visit, especially if you’re after a keepsake from your travels. For those feeling lucky, why not try your hand in the casino.

  • Health & Fitness

    Fitness on the Norwegian Spirit

    Work up your appetite for a second breakfast or just keep your fitness level up at the Pulse Fitness Centre. State-of-the-art equipment will help you feel the burn, as will the choice of fitness sessions to join (for a fee). If zenning out is more what you’re after, the Spa Thermal Suite offers heat and relaxation therapy and sweeping sea views - you’ll be sure to recharge. The Spa treatment rooms offer all the classics - massage, facials, masks, men’s grooming and more. Read more

    Best to book these ahead and check your cruise planner for daily spa specials.
