Norwegian Spirit to Sport New Hull Art After Emerging From $100 Million Dollar Refit.


Work is progressing on the massive 40-day overhaul of Norwegian Cruise Line's Norwegian Spirit occurring  at Chantier Naval de Marseille in Marseille, France. Two GNV ferries — Rhapsody and GNV Allegra– are being used as accommodation ships to house the 1,600+ crew members and army of workers required to enhance the Norwegian Spirit.

Norwegian Spirit will emerge from dry dock on February 11, 2020 after an over $100 million revitalization. The ship will feature 14 new venues, additional staterooms and an expanded Mandara Spa. Drawing inspiration from the brand’s most recent and highly successful newbuilds, the updated elements on board Norwegian Spirit will take the guest experience to the next level.

New complimentary dining venues will be introduced including 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.

New venues making their debut aboard Norwegian Spirit will include Bliss Ultra Lounge and Spinnaker Lounge, which features the Humidor Cigar Lounge. Splash Academy, the children’s waterpark, will be replaced with 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.

Mandara Spa will double in size to nearly 7,000 square feet and include a relaxation area with heated loungers, a new Jacuzzi room, and a sauna, steam room and water therapy experience. The expansion of Pulse Fitness Center will allow guests to begin or maintain their fitness routine while at sea. The ship will also debut contemporary hull art.

In addition, Norwegian Spirit will feature Onda by Scarpetta, joining the portfolio of critically acclaimed Scarpetta restaurants in New York City and the Hamptons; Miami; Las Vegas; Philadelphia; Newport, R.I.; London; and making its debut in November onboard Norwegian Encore. The name Scarpetta is derived from the Italian expression, 'fare la Scarpetta,' which means to savor a meal to the last bite. Onda, or 'wave' in Italian, will adapt the same ethos and bring the charm and effortless elegance of its urbane Scarpetta sister to the sea. Reaffirming Norwegian's commitment to providing elevated dining experiences across the fleet, guests will enjoy the rich and bold flavors the modern Italian restaurant will be known for, including a selection of beautifully prepared seafood.

Norwegian Spirit will make her debut in Asia fresh off her multi-million-dollar revitalization offering magnificent itineraries, including 9-day Japan cruises as well as 12+ day Immersive Japan and China cruises, starting in March 2020.

She will be the first in the Company’s fleet to visit Bali (Celun Bawang), Jakarta and Surabaya, Indonesia; Beppu, Kumamoto, Nagoya and Tokyo, Japan; Taipei (Keelung) Taiwan; and Yangon, Myanmar. Following two, 20-day exotic expeditions exploring Greece, Israel, Egypt and Abu Dhabi from Rome (Civitavecchia); and Seychelles, Madagascar and South Africa from Dubai; she will offer a series of destination-rich voyages to Southeast Asia, China and Japan from Singapore; Hong Kong, China; and Tokyo and Yokohama, Japan through 2020.
