Europe Loses Spirit to Oz!

The newly revitalized NCL Spirit was due to sail the stunning Greek Isles for Summer 2020 amid great excitement and strong bookings. Unfortunately as with all cruises in Summer 2020 NCL had no choice but to cancel her entire season in Europe.

NCL announced today that NCL Spirit will not sail in Europe but instead will sail in Australia and New Zealand for the 2021/2022 season. She will home port in both Sydney & Aukland, cruising for 8, 10 and 12 night itineraries.

Ben Angell, Norwegian Cruise Line’s Vice President & Managing Director APAC said; “We are delighted to launch the 2021/2022 summer sailing season of the all-new Norwegian Spirit . One of our more intimate ships – completely modernized with the adult traveller in mind. We are thrilled to help awaken the spirit of travellers across the globe who are eager to plan their dream cruise holiday. Cruisers can discover the laid-back luxury and immersive itineraries that set Norwegian Spirit apart,”

The new upgrades onboard Norwegian Spirit include the second Onda by Scarpetta restaurant at sea, a massively extended Mandara Spa, Pulse Fitness Center and the adult-only retreat Spice H2O. Guests can enjoy panoramic ocean views from Spinnaker Lounge, or a glass of bubbles in the Charles Rennie Mackintosh inspired Magnums Champagne & Wine Bar.

NCL have announced a strong early booking offer available for guests who book before 5th Oct 2020;

Up to $1000 Free On Board Credit Per Stateroom.

Along with the discount, for a limited time, guests will also receive all five choices from NCL’s ‘Free at Sea’ offer :

Free beverage package,

Free shore excursion credit,

Free specialty dining package,

Free Wi-Fi package and

NCL’s ‘3rd and 4th’ guest sail at a reduced rate’ (on select sailings).

Latitudes members will receive an additional 15% Off.

So whilst it might be disappointing for European Cruise passenger to miss out on this beauty it is wonderful news for Australian and Kiwi Cruisers.

Happy Cruising

Best Wishes
