Ship Facts: Norwegian Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Spirit Deck Plans
Pleasantly surprised by NCLs small ship

Whilst this was my 15th (8th with NCL) cruise it was my first on one of NCLs small ships after having sailed on Epic, Breakaway and Getaway and RCCL ships like Independence of the seas, all of which are double Spirit's size I was slightly worried about going back to a small ship.

However I loved the ship layout and the crew were probably amongst the best on any cruise I've done.

Whilst the weather was a bit poor with some cold days and winds that caused some movement (again so used to the larger ships that hardly move) it was very enjoyable.

The cabin was looking a bit tired, and some things like the toilet flush were a bit temperamental the bed/mattress seemed new. I missed the interactive TV feature to check onboard account etc and of course no iconcierge app for booking restaurants.

The theatre is weird entering by the stage, so also a lot harder to sneak out mid performance!!

Loved the wrap-around promenade deck and so plenty of sea views. The Raffles buffet was always great for breakfast with plenty of "overspill" tables on the terrace which was very useful.

Ate at Cagneys one night. Food was good but service was slow. 2hrs from seated to dessert.

Teppenyaki was better service but only one table so books up fast.

But for me the crew, especially the bar staff in the Biergarten and Henry's made it really enjoyable.

From Barcelona the embarkation and disembarkation are always simple and efficient.

I'd definitely consider her again for a future cruise.
