Norwegian Cruise Line Norwegian Spirit

Norwegian Spirit unveiled following a $100 million renovation

Norwegian Cruise Line has unveiled its updated cruise ship, Norwegian Spirit, following a $100-million overhaul as part of The Norwegian Edge programme.

The ship emerged from a 43-day dry dock in Marseille, France to arrive at Civitavecchia, Italy, boasting 14 new venues, additional and updated staterooms, enhanced public areas and new hull art. She sets sail on a series of immersive 17-, 20- and 28-day expeditions spanning three continents. It departed from Civitavecchia, Italy on February 14, 2020.

It will depart from Dubai, United Arab Emirates on March 2, 2020; and Cape Town, South Africa on March 22, 2020, before homeporting in Athens (Piraeus), Greece for the first time on April 19, 2020.

The company will offer a season of seven-day voyages to the Greek Isles, Turkey, and Israel through November 8, 2020. On sale now, the new itineraries, many which boast extended port times, will explore seven or eight ports in seven days. Calling to destinations include Rhodes, Mykonos; Santorini and Corfu, Greece; Kusadasi and Istanbul, Turkey; Ashdod and Haifa, Israel; Limassol, Cyprus as well as two new ports of call for the brand, Patmos and Volos, Greece.

Norwegian Spirit's enhancements include a doubled-in-size Mandara Spa, complete with a new thermal suite and relaxation area; an expanded Pulse Fitness Center; and the second Onda by Scarpetta restaurant at sea. New complimentary dining venues include an additional main dining room, Taste; the 24-hour eatery, The Local Bar and Grill; the all-day dining outlet, Garden Café; the Great Outdoors Bar; and Waves Pool Bar. Making their debut are Bliss Ultra Lounge and Spinnaker Lounge, which features the Humidor Cigar Lounge, as well as the adults-only retreat Spice H2O, a daytime lounge featuring two new hot tubs and a dedicated bar, which transforms into an after-hours entertainment venue.

Harry Sommer, president and CEO of the cruise line, said: "It is truly exciting to celebrate Norwegian Spirit's sail out of dry dock to incredible destinations following her significant renovation. 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."
