Took advantage of UBP & shore excursion credit on the only cruise to fit our time from from Port Canaveral. Also had Cruise credit from previous cruise. Like this size ship and wanted Western itinerary. The Spirit is in fine shape ... Read more

We recently completed a seven night Caribbean cruise on the NCL Spirit. It was a wonderful trip! Leading up to the trip, we read negative reviews about the Spirit, but honestly our experience did not resemble the previous reviews. We have ... Read more

Having just returned from a cruise on Norwegian Spirit, I have to say what a very pleasant surprise I had. I had read many reviews that had made me doubt my choice, mostly about the age and condition of the ship. I am happy to say, that ... Read more

I had been on the Norwegian Spirit in May of 2015 in Europe for 15 days and liked the ship. Norwegian also offered an interior room without a single supplement on this cruise and since I traveled solo for the first time, this was an ... Read more

First things first. As you may have heard before - a cruise is what you make it - I believe that anyone can get on any ship and with the right attitude can have a good time. I just got off of the Norwegian Spirit and, because I went in ... Read more

Having been on over 20 cruises with a competing cruise line, I was skeptical about venturing out on an older smaller ship as the Spirit. My first impression of the ship was that even in its old age, the ship is magnificent. Our room was ... Read more

Where do i start? What a great cruise. Some of the criticisms I have read are totally unjustified. Yes it is an older ship, but tired definitely not. We arrived on a warm spring day and parked at the car park by the terminal. Very ... Read more

I booked this cruise on the spur of the moment because it was really cheap, but it didn't have any perks. When I book with Norwegian again I will make sure I have the beverage package because to purchase it or just buy the drinks is very ... Read more

This ship is a classic. The decor is more old style with details to quality that the newer ships have elimated. It reminds me of the old days where an elegance and style for a touch of class was to be found in all areas of the ship and ... Read more

Positives: Staff was very cordial, until the last day when some seemed to be in a bad mood. Maybe they were going to miss us? Drink plan was a good value. Internet, while expensive, worked. Cereal in individuals serving size ... Read more

My wife and I boarded the Spirit in what I can only describe as one of the most efficient and thorough operations we have encountered in almost 20 years! The ship was in excellent condition for a ship of its age and immaculately clean. ... Read more
