Embarcation was a breeze as we had elected to arrive close to the time we could board and were able to leave our carry on bags in our cabin, which was already prepared. Spirit is a relatively small and older ship so if you are looking ... Read more

Fine transatlantic cruise with a few blips along the way. Spirit is an older smaller ship which suits me fine and has many features fast disappearing on larger newer ships such as a wide teak wraparound promenade deck and a forward ... Read more

This NCL Spirit Cruise was chosen as our first cruise. We wanted to get from Guadalajara Mexico to Paris France without any prolonged flights. Based upon cost, convenience and enjoyment, a cruise seemed to be the best way to get to ... Read more

I wanted to get to Italy by ship from Miami so we choose NCL Jade April 19, 2016. This is the ugliest ship I have ever been on. It was the old Pride of Hawaii and they never did any renovations. Plastic flowers on the ceiling, dated ... Read more

Odd to think that I was on the same ship as some of the other reviewers! My wife and I were very happy with our cabin. Clean, comfortable- and it was an inside cabin to boot. We ate in the Versailles every night and never had to wait since ... Read more

Embarkation was one of the easiest yet. We walked directly in to the terminal, check in, and walked onboard the ship. Head directly to O'Sheehan's for lunch and wait for rooms to open. Once the rooms were opened we had a BA midship, ... Read more

Even though the Jade is going in for remodeling, we loved the old Hawaiian decor. We thought it was really elegant and not gaudy. Service was excellent. The staff remembered our names and greeted us everywhere. Grand Pacific main dining ... Read more

We had a fun time on this ship. It appears there is a TA crowd that we plugged into from cruise critic and we had a blast getting together on sailaways, a daily game of LCR which grew larger (and louder) every day, the cabin crawl and met ... Read more

This was our first cruise with Norwegian and the first freestyle one. We liked it very much. No overly dressy clothes to pack, just some nice pants/slacks, shirts/blouses did the job for dining. The rest was vacation clothes. However, ... Read more
