We got to the port early and after dropping off our luggage proceeded in to be greeted with a drink, sandwich and cookies from the NCL staff. We ate and went to sign in, showed our passports, got our pictures taken and got our ship cards ... Read more

Getting on board was a little bit of a pain mainly because there were 2 ships in at the same time (Spirit and Dawn). Also this is New York where it is always a bit of a mad house. Room: It was bit small for 3 adults. We had a room with ... Read more

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

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
