Talking NCL SPIRIT - 8/26/11 - Graduation Cruise!

Hello Fellow GLBTQ Sailors,

I'm out to celebrate graduation from college and have chosen the Norwegian Spirit on 8/26/2011 to do it. The Spirit sails from New Orleans on a 7 day Western Caribbean adventure with port calls including Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico along with Belize and Roatan (Honduras).

While doing some research I also discovered this sailing returns to New Orleans during "Southern Decadence" which is a big weekend down there. It makes me wonder if there'll be more family on this sailing than usual too? So speak up and let's pass the next 3.5 months!

~J

Ok boys and gals? Where are you all hiding out? I'm sure there's got to be more folks on this sailing considering it's ending during Southern Decadence! Speak on up! Let's make this cruise a blast!!

I can't wait to celebrate!!!

As final payment approaches... just checking to see if there are any new bookings on here... seems like the movement of bookings have slowed down but there's still plenty of space!

It's mighty quiet on this roll call. I guess all the party boys are going to Southern Decadence instead!

Announcing the…

Cruise Critic Meet & Greet
Monday, August 29, 2011
10AM to 11AM
Henry’s Pub – Deck 7 Midship

Come meet some of the senior staff of the Norwegian Spirit, Norwegian Cruise Line’s Oriental Lady and meet your fellow Cruise Critics! It’s sure to be a great time!

New to the Norwegian Spirit? You can find Henry’s Pub by going to the atrium on Deck 7 midship. When facing the Guest Relations Desk, go the left and you’ll find Henry’s Pub (has green walls). Or if you’re out for a stroll on the Promenade Deck, you can find an entrance to Henry’s Pub on the Port side of the ship. There is a sign which marks the entrance from outside.

I look forward to seeing you all there!

Thanks for the congrats!! I hear you on the $$. Seriously with the airfares through the roof I don't know how I am going to be able to afford to cruise in January any more because all the ships are in FL and the airfare is HIDEOUS!

Hello Steven & Sheila!

Welcome to the party! It'll be a great time! Make sure you stop by the Meet & Greet on the first day and if you have any questions about the ship, I'll be glad to answer as I've sailed this ship two times already!

Age doesn't mean anything. So you may not be up until all hours of the night discoing and leave after the late Friends of Dorothy gathering but that doesn't mean you still can't come by and say hello!

Be sure to check your FreeStyle Daily for the time. It's usually around 10PMish in the Maharini's Lounge.

I'm just out to have fun and CELEBRATE!!!

Have you booked any tours yet?
