Norwegian Cruises has taken on the concept of "freestyle cruising" for all of its lines, and the Spirit is no exception. Whether it's the sense of humor that permeates the ship, the numerous child activities or the unrestricted dining hours and activities, the Spirit has become a standard for those who love the hustle and bustle of cruising without the stuffiness.
