Overview Itinerary
The Ship
From the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, Norwegian Spirit offers style and entertainment as you sail around the world. Spend sunny days in Tivoli Pool and its nearby hot tubs while the kids enjoy the paddling pool and water slides at Buccaneer's Wet & Wild park. From Las Vegas style shows at Stardust Theatre, to poker games and slot machines at Maharajah's Casino, evenings come to life with great entertainment for everyone, too. You can try up to 14 dining venues, as well as 12 bars and lounges, while at sea. Dine on Asian, French and Italian cuisines; enjoy variety at the buffet; or savour traditional fish and chips from Henry's Pub. With teen discos, kids' clubs, spa treatments, and spacious staterooms, Norwegian Spirit is the ideal way for families and couples to cruise in comfort.

Food
Enjoy a range of cafes and restaurants on Norwegian Spirit. Raffles Court & Terrace offers buffets of dishes including omelettes, waffles, fruit, soups, and pastas with outdoor seating available, while Blue Lagoon Cafe is your 24-hour food court serving everything from burgers to noodles. For classic, cruise-style dining, there are Windows and The Garden Room restaurants offering a sophisticated atmosphere and delicious courses. Visit Bier Garten Grill for bratwurst and sauerkraut; La Trattoria for pizza and pasta; and Le Bistro French Restaurant for modern and classic gourmet cuisine with fine wine. Cagney's Steakhouse serves T-bones, prime ribs, cocktails, crab cakes and truffle fries, while Shogun Asian Restaurant offers a diverse menu of Thai, Chinese and Japanese specialities. Watch chefs chop, slice and grill your steak, chicken and seafood at the Japanese hibachi restaurant, Teppanyaki, as you enjoy the restaurant's signature Wasabi Cocktail. You also have a cafe in the lobby, which serves coffees and pastries, as well as the delicious Sushi & Sashimi Bar and 24-hour room service.

Drink
You can enjoy great atmospheres and a range of drinks aboard Norwegian Spirit. Head to Raffles Terrace Bar for outdoor seating areas or Galaxy of the Stars Observation Lounge for stunning views and a full bar of drinks and appetisers. Henry's Pub is the ideal spot to socialise in a traditional English pub setting — there's even a dartboard, large TV screens, fish and chips on the menu, and real ale on tap! Throughout the day, you have The Cafe in the ship's lobby, which serves coffees and pastries, or you can visit Bier Garten for an outdoor bar serving snacks and premium beers. Shanghai Bar is a sports venue with an Asian twist that offers premium beers and tasty pub snacks to enjoy as you watch live games on the big TV screens. In the evening, you have the choice of Maharajah's Casino Bar, the Bollywood-style Maharini's Lounge & Nightclub, and the sophisticated Charlie's Champagne Bar - where you can enjoy champagne, caviar and foie gras.

Entertainment
There's plenty to keep everyone entertained on Norwegian Spirit. Spend days relaxing on a lounger beside Tivoli Pool or unwinding in any of its four hot tubs. You can enjoy a pampering session and treatment at Oscar's Hair & Beauty Salon and Roman Spa & Fitness Centre, or have a game at the golf nets and basketball court. Spend time at the card room, library, Internet cafe, jogging track, and duty-free shops, while the kids have fun with their own activities. Buccaneer's Wet & Wild features a paddling pool, hot tub and water slides, while Celebrity Teen Disco offers a jukebox, table football and air hockey. There's also Charlie's Child Care Centre — with a cinema, nursery, and arts and crafts sessions — as well as a video arcade. In the evening the whole family can enjoy the Broadway and Las Vegas style shows in Stardust Theatre. Adults can also head to the stylish Maharajah's Casino and have a go at blackjack, roulette, craps, poker, and slot machines.
Day 1: UK to Rome, Italy
Fly from the UK to Rome and be transferred to the port to board NCL Spirit for your seven-night cruise.
Day 2: At Sea
Day 3: Dubrovnik, Croatia
The Croatian city of Dubrovnik sits on the country's southern coast on the Adriatic Sea. Explore the city centre — an UNESCO World Heritage site — with its 17th-century Cathedral of the Assumption and Rector's Palace, before walking around the ancient city walls. Admire the views as you ride the cable car to Mt Srd or visit one of the city's museums. Relax in the sunshine on Banje Beach; enjoy a boat trip to the nearby islands of Lokrum and Elafati; and view the city from the water on a kayaking trip or take a snorkelling tour.
Day 4: Kotor, Montenegro
Kotor is based on the Adriatic coastline in south-west Montenegro. One of the country's prettiest and most-famous towns, Kotor is an UNESCO World Heritage site and offers a range of historic landmarks and natural beauty spots. The old town district is filled with medieval architecture and monuments — as well as one of the narrowest streets in the world! From its Venetian-style gates to its former Austrian prisons, Kotor's past is kept alive for you to explore. Wander around the range of shops, and head to a bar or restaurant at a piazza to admire views of the mountains.
Day 5: Messina, Sicily
The gateway to Mount Etna, Messina, is the third-largest port in Sicily. This city — which was used to film part of the film 'The Godfather' — is famous for its museums and architectural beauty. Drive up the side of nearby Mount Etna on a day trip or wander around the many shops along Messina's wide boulevards to look at Sicilian pottery and art pieces. Black volcanic glass from Mount Etna features heavily in Sicilian jewellery and makes a great souvenir. Visit Norman Messina Cathedral to see its beautiful, 15th-century windows and astronomical clock tower, before walking by the stunning marble fountains — Fontana di Orione and Neptune Fountain — which are decorated with mythical creatures and gods. Make sure to dine on locally-inspired swordfish, pasta and pizza dishes complemented by rich Sicilian wine at a trattoria during your time here, too.
Day 6: Naples (Pompeii), Italy
Pompeii is located near the Bay of Naples in Italy. This once Roman city and its 20,000 residents were famously buried in a thick carpet of ash after the nearby Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. The site was rediscovered with its buildings, artefacts, and skeletons virtually intact by a group of explorers in 1748. The excavation of the site has been going on for over three centuries. See the discovered artefacts on display at Antiquarium museum, before meandering through the Forum, Teatros Grande and Piccolo, Amphitheatre, the preserved Terme Stabiane baths, and House of Menander. Visit the Street of Tombs, Villa del Misteri, and House of the Vettii. At the Nuovi Savi area, at the end of Via dell'Abbondanza, view the magnificent painted frieze at Crytoporticus House and the stunning Venus fresco in Casa della Venere.
Day 7: Livorno (Florence/Pisa), Italy
The Italian port of Livorno gives you access to both Florence and Pisa. Florence is the capital of the Tuscany region and the centre of Italian Renaissance. Explore Italy's greatest artistic treasures; Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and Piazza Duomo with its world famous dome. No visit would be complete without stopping by the Uffizi Gallery and admiring the panoramic views of Florence from the 19th-century Pizzale Michelangelo. Pisa is most famous for its iconic leaning tower and is a must on any to-see list. Take a tour around the five-aisled Romanesque Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and the nearby Baptistery. Pay a visit to Campo Santo (Sacred Field), Museo Nazionale, and Palazzo dei Cavalieri.
