SINGAPORE (10 May 2022) - 
Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), the innovator in global cruise travel, today celebrated the completion of its Great Cruise Comeback with the sailing of Norwegian Spirit, the 17th and final ship in its fleet to return to service.

NCL’s return to service after a 500-day pause began with Norwegian Jade’s 25 July 2021 sailing from Athens (Piraeus), Greece. Since then, NCL has systematically relaunched its ships around the world, welcoming guests and crew members aboard its award-winning vessels.

"This is an incredibly important day in our history and a defining moment for our future,” 
said Harry Sommer, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. 

“We are moving full speed ahead, having already welcomed more than half a million guests for an exceptional vacation at sea.”

Norwegian Spirit, which is sporting an extensive bow-to-stern, over US$100 million revitalisations, will be sailing through the deep blue South Pacific, visiting eight ports in 12 days, with departures from the beautiful Island of Tahiti. This cruise departs from Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia Saturday, 7 May 2022, and disembarks on Thursday, 19 May 2022, in Honolulu, Oahu.

Norwegian Spirit will also debut in Australian waters for the very first time on 22 December 2022 for her inaugural local sailing season.

As part of the most extensive renovation in Company history, Norwegian Spirit now showcases 14 new 
venues, additional and updated staterooms, enhanced public areas and new hull art. Enhancements include a double-in-size Mandara Spa that features a new thermal suite and relaxation areas, an expanded Pulse Fitness Center and the second Onda by Scarpetta restaurant at sea. Making their debuts are The Social Comedy & Night Club 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.
