Norwegian Spirit will drop anchor in the Big Easy beginning in November 2007, sailing seven-day exotic Western Caribbean cruises through April 2008. Norwegian Spirit’s itinerary will feature calls into Belize City, Santo Tomas, Guatemala and Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico.

Freestyle Cruising has proven to be especially popular with the New Orleans market, and the line was the first back into the city after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.

After her 2007 summer deployment out of New York, Norwegian Spirit will reposition to New Orleans beginning November 18 replacing Norwegian Sun, which moves to Hawaii for the winter season.

Norwegian Spirit features NCL’s signature Freestyle Cruising with eight restaurants, 12 bars and lounges, a state-of-the-art spa and fitness facility, a pirate-themed activity complex for kids, a teen center, basketball court, golf driving net, casino and conference center among other amenities.
