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.

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


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

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.

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.
