Overall the cruise was great, compared to others we found more activities and lots more to do mostly in the evenings. The evening shows like newlywed not so newlywed, the perfect couple, celebrity dance off, cirque de soliel, burn the ... Read more

We picked this line and ship based on other reviews and the fact Norwegian was including alcohol and specialty dining with the package (and based on other cruises, it ended up saving us about $1,200 in the end). Some of the reviews were ... Read more

This was our first cruise and on it we celebrated our 42nd wedding anniversary. We had a balcony stateroom (10552) and would recommend this as it gave us a little more room, allowed fresh air in the room and was great to view the sights ... Read more

This was an amazing trip, sheer perfection from start to finish. Booked this trip back in July as it is the only ship in Hawaii that spends more time in port than on the sea. As first time cruisers on our first trip to Hawaii we wanted to ... Read more

A great ship and a good value, but do not expect any crew member to ever answer the simplest of questions.An extremely unorganized crew who at best could not run a pay toilet at the county fair. I am being a lot more polite than is ... Read more

Our NCL cruise started off well. Embarkation was smooth and efficient. We found the Norwegian Sky public areas clean but showing signs of wear. It appears like it’s time for a dry dock refresh. Our oceanview cabin was mostly as ... Read more

We sailed on 3 other NCL ships peviously - mostly Jewel class, & once on the Epic. Firstly, I'm amazed how some previous reviews mention the Spirit is old... It is, or should be irrelevant to each review of the Spirit-the fact it is ... Read more
