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.

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.

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.

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.

Day 7: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Belfast, capital of Northern Ireland, enjoys a wonderful setting of high hills, sea lough and river valley. Its name originated from the Gaelic ‘Beal Feirste’ meaning ‘mouth of the sandy fjord’. Founded in the 17th century, the city prospered becoming one of the world’s leading industrial names, and was home to Harland and Wolff – the shipbuilders who built the ill-fated Titanic. Despite its more recent political troubles, Belfast has emerged as a vibrant, alluring destination. Amidst its beautiful Victorian buildings you can shop in stylish boutiques, sip a Guinness in one of its charming old pubs or take a scenic stroll in Barnett Demesne park. The centrepiece is the City Hall, completed in 1906, with its domed roof and grand Italian marble staircase.
