Ship Facts: Norwegian Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Spirit Deck Plans
New year cruise

We have done several cruises but this was the first with Norwegian cruise line. Really enjoyed the freestyle cruising. We didn't have to dress up if we didn't want to but we could don our posh frocks if so inclined.

The ship had lots of quiet areas where you could sit and read quietly.

The food was very good but don't waste your money on the special restaurants as the food is no different to the complementary ones. We booked the bistro as one of our party was celebrating a birthday. The food was mediocre. The staff were very good but we had a long wait between courses. We missed the theatre show that night!

There were some great shows on every night. Our favourite was ' Elements'. Wow! Definitely worth watching.

Unfortunately the wines were awful. On arrival, we decided to take a wine package but we had to pick our wines there and then. That was disappointing as we like to choose our wines dependant on our food. The wine was VERY expensive and poor quality.

There were plenty of bars around the ship. My favourite was Henry's although the staff could have been more pleasant. However, the rest of my party preferred Champagne Charlie's. The ambience there was lovely.

We would certainly cruise with this company again but maybe a more upmarket ship.

Most staff were friendly but we never made friends with anyone, like we did on other ships.

It was good to hear announcements in vaious languages.
