Norwegian deals aim to lure back cruise fans

There are plenty of tough jobs in the world right now, but promoting luxury cruises has be among the toughest. 

Most mornings my email inbox contains several upbeat story ideas; all ignoring the fact that cruising is a little on the nose right now. 

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), with a 53-year history, is hoping to gain some traction with the forthcoming arrival of Norwegian Spirit to local waters for the first time. 

The ship has recently undergone the most extensive bow-to-stern modernisation in the history of the line’s fleet and is designed with the adult cruiser in mind. 

Her inaugural 2021-2022 local summer sailing season sees Norwegian Spirit offering a collection of eight-, 10- and 12-day port intensive itineraries departing from Sydney and Auckland. 

The ship has fresh staterooms (above) and 14 new venues. Updated elements include the second 
Onda by Scarpetta restaurant at sea, a doubled-in-size Mandara Spa, an expanded Pulse Fitness Centre and the adult-only retreat Spice H2O

Norwegian Spirit boasts 10 bars and lounges and 14 dining options - so has the gourmet clout to woo back any wavering cruisers. 

As a further incentive, from now until September 30 (basically just the next few days), NCL is giving holidaymakers the chance to save up to $500 off their cabin fare on any of Norwegian Spirit’s Australia and New Zealand itineraries.


Along with the discount, and for a limited time, guests will also receive all five choices from NCL’s ‘Free at Sea’ offer, including a free beverage package, free shore excursion credit, free specialty dining package, free wifi package and access to NCL’s ‘discounted groups deals. 

For more information or to book a cruise call NCL in Australia on 1300 255 200 or in New Zealand on 0800 969 283; or visit
