Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) celebrated the completion of its "Great Cruise Comeback" on 09MAY with the sailing of Norwegian Spirit, the 17th and final ship in its fleet to return to service.

NCL’s return to service after a 500-day pause began with Norwegian Jade’s 25JUL 2021 sailing from Athens (Piraeus), Greece. Since then, the cruise line has systematically relaunched its ships around the world, welcoming guests and crew members aboard.

"This is an incredibly important day in our history and a defining moment for our future," said Harry Sommer, president and CEO of Norwegian Cruise Line. "We are moving full speed ahead, having already welcomed more than half a million guests for an exceptional vacation at sea."

Norwegian Spirit, which is sporting an extensive USD $100 million revitalization, will be sailing through the South Pacific, visiting eight ports in 12 days, with departures from the Island of Tahiti.

As part of the most extensive renovation in NCL history, Norwegian Spirit now showcases 14 new venues, additional and updated staterooms, enhanced public areas and new hull art.

Enhancements included a doubled-in-size Mandara Spa that features a new thermal suite and relaxation areas, an expanded Pulse Fitness Center and the second Onda by Scarpetta restaurant at sea. New complimentary dining venues include an additional main dining room, Taste; the 24-hour eatery, The Local Bar and Grill; the all-day dining outlet, Garden Café; the Great Outdoors Bar; and Waves Pool Bar. Making their debut are The Social Comedy & Night Club and Spinnaker Lounge, which features the Humidor Cigar Lounge, as well as the adults-only retreat Spice H2O, a daytime lounge featuring two new hot tubs and a dedicated bar, which transforms into an after-hours entertainment venue.
