If you are thinking about cruising on the Norwegian Spirit I highly recommend you think twice. As a matter of fact don't even consider it. My family and I (10 of us) cruised on the Norwegian Spirit July 20, 2008 to the Bahamas. 5 of us ... Read more

This was all of our first time on Norwegian Cruise Line. I have gotten reviews for it being the best cruise line. Check-in was pretty easy and simple. I didn't understand why we boarded the ship with Miley Cyrus playing throughout the ... Read more

First of all, let me tell you a little bit about me. I was a first time cruiser and was traveling with my husband and our 13 month old. Frankly, I am not really into cruises and because we have a baby, we were pretty weary of going on one. ... Read more

I should have heeded warnings from friends prior to disembarkation. Unfortunately, I only spoke with them days prior to our trip. One person actually e-mailed me their complaint letter, however, I didn't read it so I could form my own ... Read more

Bording the ship was a total disaster and disorganized. It took hours waiting in line before boarding ship. The baggage handlers were obnixious, rude and threw the luggage around like garbage being tossed into the back of a sanitation ... Read more

Prior to departure I had read some bad reviews about this ship. Although there were some negatives, I would have to say that our experience was mostly positive. First our embarkation and debarkation couldn't have gone any smoother. This ... Read more

Let me start off by admitting that I may have had an abnormal experience on the Spirit because of the fact that I booked a suite. But I must tell you that if you can afford to do the same, I highly recommend it. It will cost you roughly ... Read more
