Ship Facts: Norwegian Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Spirit Deck Plans
Norwegian Spirit - Alaska
"Attire Wear what you want. Dress according to your mood. It is your vacation. "Resort casual" attire is as dressy as you'll ever have to get for dinner. But if it's elegance you're dreaming of, we invite you to indulge. Many of our restaurants offer formal options. If you prefer more casual dress, that's fine, too. How you dress is up to you."

That is what NCL states on their web site. What they don't tell you is that you cannot wear jeans to dinner. They need to tell you what they call "Resort Casual" actually is. We were refused into the dining areas. In fact the hostess in Windows was very rude in refusing us service. I couldn't believe it. There were a few friendly faces, but mostly the crew went about their jobs with out a smile.

We had a bunch of teenagers running around the ship making noises and such. No supervision.

The food was so so and the buffet was cold. The food was good in the 24 hour Blue Lagoon, but it was a tight and narrow place with people going through. Not that comfortable. Crowded in the buffet area also. Not giving people much space to get around. They tell you there are so many options for dinner, but forget to tell you that you have to pay extra for about half of them. There were lines to get into the two main eating areas, the Garden and The Windows. Sometimes up to an hour waiting. We went to one before 5:30 when it was to open and the stairs and hallway were packed. Very uncomfortable.

Getting to the boat from airport was fine, but they were so unorganized when we were going back home. They need to communicate among each other and get their stories straight.

Loved going to Alaska, but will not cruise with this line again. Not the service or experience I have had on other cruise lines.
