    NORWEGIAN SPIRIT - Traveling with... "spirit" of East!

    On Thursday, May 28th Arxipelagos team with great pleasure visited Norwegian Spirit, one of the most beautiful mid-sized cruise ships.

    The ship was built in the german shipyards Meyer Werft in Papenburg and it was the first of two that had been ordered by the Star Cruises, parent company of Norwegian Cruise Line. The SuperStar Leo, as its original name was, was delivered in September 1998 and a few weeks later began short cruises to Malaysia and Thailand from Hong Kong.

    In 2003 SARS virus "breaks out"
    in Asia and the ship was forced to change the program traveling to Australia and after the recession of the virus returned to its normal program in Hong Kong.
    2004 is the most important year for the ship. In the shipyards of Papenburg, the new NCL's ship Pride of America was almost completed but due to the violent storms which hit northern Europe, the shipyards flooded and the ship was severely damaged resulting in delivery to be postponed for next year. In order to avoid the cancellation of already scheduled cruises it was decided these trips to be made by the SuperStar Leo.
    After two weeks of renovation to adapt to the requirements of the American public, while maintaining the "oriental fragrance" in several areas such as the magnificent atrium Grand Centrum, the renamed Norwegian Spirit began traveling to the Caribbean Sea and was adored by passengers.
