New Spirit !!!! Beautiful!!!

Recommended Posts

Now .... for Keith ... the Great Outdoors (ex Raffles Terrace) which to our delight still look the same. Spice H2O area. 
 

Pool is closed at the moment. 
 

Notice the brand new glasses (plastic) shining in the sun. 
 

And our fave bartender Aan.

Garden Cafe. (Ex Raffles Court)

 

I think the carpet is same as the one on Encore but I’ll have to check my photos.

Outside - pool deck and Biergarten.

Then final pictures of Spice H2O pool from deck 13. 
 

Cheers!!!

As you walked through the ship, did you notice if they kept the HUGE Jade Buddha outside of the Asian restaurant??

Looks incredible.  This may sway me to try a smaller ship again......

Thanks for sharing so many great photos. The Spirit was my first NCL ship and I was so looking forward to seeing the changes in Japan in November. Oh well, I'm sure I'll find another time to enjoy the changes.

Thanks so much for the pictures.   We were on her in October and wondered what it would look like after the changes.

Wow if I can get a good solo price this ship looks like a good option. 

Everything listed for the summer has the "less than double" solo deal.

Looks inviting. Too bad it does not have a round trip cruise out of New York. I think I would love their Great Outdoors.

To the OP, thanks so much for the photos, first I've seen. They've done a spectacular job in turning Spirit into a "new" ship with a fresh new look.  

 

But I also thought about the incredible Asian art that made the Spirit so special from the small Cambodian statues on various decks to the Mother of Pearl lacquered screen to the Jade Buddha mentioned above.  I still remember having dinner in the tatami room around the huge lacquered table, sitting Japanese style on the straw mats.  Times change and so has the Spirit!

 

To the person who mentioned it, yes, looks like same carpet as Encore Garden Cafe.  The gray with gold swirl near elevators is the carpet from same area on Dawn. Good eye!

 

The soaring atrium and elevators fortunately stay and still look beautiful.  Looking forward to having a chance to sail on   Spirit again after so many years.

 

Wishing the Spirit many successful and enjoyable voyages full of happy cruisers!  Congratulations to NCL.

Great pics thanks - sailed on her in the Baltics in August 19 and loved the Spirit and was really worried that they would ruin it, but still looks good. I loved Henry's Bar and the Galaxy

 

Out of interest to the OP - how did you manage to get water onboard and your minibar emptied (guess you just asked)  and do you know why the Itinerary changed late on to avoid Greece and 3 days shorter?  I will be getting on the day you get off in Dubai

 

Enjoy bluesea777

Now I am REALLY looking forward to boarding her in a months time.

 

Great to see Aan is on board - which bar is he in?

 

Are those USB ports by the bed?

 

The revamped Blue Lagoon looks a great improvement. Glad they kept the Champagne bar. Very excited now.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post all the pictures.

 

Thank goodness there is a slightly better hairdryer.

 

Is there a clothesline in the shower?

Looks great, loved that Asian vibe when we sailed her in 2014.  Ironic that she lost the Asian feel right before being scheduled to Asia, then lost the Asian itineraries.  Maybe in 2021 we can catch her in Japan, but the Olympics will be over.
