The renovations to the 22-year old ship give Norwegian Spirit a more modern, contemporary look and feel.
The Mandara Spa has doubled in size and has a new thermal suite and relaxation area and an expanded fitness centre.
An additional main dining room has been added to the ship, along with 24-hour restaurant Taste; The Local Bar and Grill, a revitalized Garden Café buffet area and the second Onda by Scarpetta restaurant at sea.

“It is truly exciting to celebrate Norwegian Spirit’s sail out of dry dock to incredible destinations following her significant renovation,” said Harry Sommer, president and chief executive officer of Norwegian Cruise Line.
“Europe is the number one destination for international arrivals, and we are very proud to position Norwegian Spirit for her first post-dry-dock season in this high-demand region.”
Norwegian Spirit will be setting sail on a series of immersive 17, 20 and 28-day exotic expeditions spanning three continents with unforgettable highlight ports such as Dubai, Cape Town and Athens.
