Ship Facts: Norwegian Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Spirit Deck Plans
Second time around...

We are both midlife women who enjoy the convenience of cruising - unpack and relax. We had a fabulous time aboard the Spirit when we cruised out of New Orleans in 2011. The small ship, great and friendly staff, combined with fun onboard activities made for an easy choice when we discovered the Canary Island itinerary.

We left from Barcelona and were delighted to be greeted with the same warm welcome we remembered. We even bumped into some of the same staff, well ok, bartenders and the dance instructor. We were delighted with the service we received from bartender Dinu, in Maharini's, who provided exceptional service and good humor.

We discovered that the evening activities aboard the Spirit were, shall we say more low key than we experienced on the previous cruise. We made the best of our time onboard and took advantage of the fun parties in the Galaxy, especially fun was the Halloween costume party and disco dance nights.

We were also lucky enough to be selected in the lottery for dinner with the ships officers. Our host was HR Director, Robert Vrooman, who graciously hosted six of us and kept us entertained with jokes and stories and gave us a glimpse of life aboard the Spirit. He even mentioned a new ship with special accommodation and activities geared towards singles on the newest ship, Breakaway.

Despite the news that we could not make port in the Canary Islands due to weather, and Kathryn's constant moaning over WiFi withdrawal, we look forward to cruising like Norwegians again...perhaps on the Breakaway.
