i have just read the two very recent reviews of this cruise on this site and was amused by the diametrically opposite views held by the individuals involved. I fall somewhere in between the very negative and the very positive views ... Read more

This was our 15th Cruise and our first with NCL Freestyle Cruising, or anytime dining, etc. We were and still are fans of Traditional Dining although I can see where some would like this type of format as it is nice to adjust your eating ... Read more

This was our 4th cruise on NCL and second on the Spirit. We chose this cruise because it was a port intensive itinerary and visited islands that are not typical for cruising. We arrived in NOLA a few days before our cruise so we arrived at ... Read more

Considering the fact that this was my first cruise that I booked on a whim, I had a fair amount of anticipation heading into the cruise. Am I going to get sea sick? Will I like the food? What if I miss the boat? I also did absolutely zero ... Read more

Having cruised every major line on the seas...and experiencing accommodations anywhere from an inside cabin to an ultra suite---we feel obligated to help fellow cruisers in their decision-making process. This was our experience. This was ... Read more

My husband and I were on The Spirit, for a 7-day Western Caribbean cruise, and returned on 12/16. As far as the overall experience, we have a split decision. We had a suite, and you do receive special services and amenities other ... Read more

The embarkation went fine - we arrived at the port by Taxi around 11:30 and had no problem getting on. We were on board within an hour and in the stateroom by 1:45. The room is nice and spacious. Really enjoyed the balcony. No need for ... Read more

Just returned from a 7 day cruise from 12/2 - 12/9. From the first day, many of the crew did not know how to talk to people or to treat people. They were very rude, not only to our group but to others as well. Many people complained about ... Read more

I see a few other reviews about this sailing, and I just wanted to add my comments too. If anyone had anything (major)negative to say about this ship or sailing, I would wonder if they were on the same ship I was on. This was my 7th cruise ... Read more

We flew into Newark the night before the cruise and stayed at a hotel where the planes flew right over to land on the runway. You would think this would be a problem, but it wasn't. They had a nice little restaurant, with great food. The ... Read more

Let me start off with my thoughts that there are no bad cruises, just ones we liked more then others. Our last cruise was on NCL, the Spirit out of NOLA. We sailed over the Thanksgiving holiday. I will say it was the first sailing for this ... Read more

We drove to New Orleans a day early and spend the night. I would recommend doing so since there is a lot to do in New Orleans and it gets you in the proper mood for your cruise. We had no trouble finding the terminal and were directed to ... Read more

This was our anniversary cruise and we were not disappointed. Although the embarkation in New Orleans was exceptionally slow (as was the debarkation process) this was the only 'lowpoint" of our entire cruise. Our balcony cabin was very ... Read more
