Destinations: NCL Norwegian Spirit itineraries
The NCL Norwegian Spirit spends the majority of her time sailing the Eastern and Western Caribbean from Port Canaveral, with the odd trip further afield to the Mediterranean or Atlantic. You can expect a good variety of shore excursions at each port, from river rafting in Jamaica to snorkelling with turtles in the US Virgin Islands.

Things to remember: Onboard the NCL Norwegian Spirit
Here are a few things to keep in mind as you plan your holiday onboard the NCL Norwegian Spirit:
  • The atmosphere is relaxed and laidback, with a casual dress code - no need to worry about packing formal wear like suits or flashy dresses!
  • Daily gratuities are automatically added to your onboard account, and the currency is US dollars.
  • This is a family-friendly ship, with plenty of activities and accommodation options to suit family groups. 

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
