In 2005 Norwegian Spirit hit a pier in Juneau, causing minor damage.

In 2007, Norwegian Spirit again struck a pier, this time in New York Harbor. In both cases, repairs were made to the ship. On 25 May 2008 at approximately 9:00 am the Spirit contacted Pier 90 in New York City at the end of an eight-day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean. She damaged the parking garage support columns and the bow of the ship.

In January 2006, Norwegian Spirit encountered a rogue wave off the coast of Tortola.

In March 2011 the Norwegian Spirit was over 12 hours late due to a death on the ship and a collision into the pier in Mexico.
