Disappointing Overall with Some High Points
"In addition, our cruise stopped at Icy Straight Point for twelve hours, and there is nothing to do there for twelve hours, but the ship only spent four hours in Ketchikan and three hours in Victoria, BC, both of which are much more interesting and developed ports.That's a big thing I do want to mention about the staff, like I said, most of them were wonderful but we had more than one experience where we got the wrong item or didn't get something because the staff did not seem to understand what we were asking for...."Read More

I like this size and type of ship

I chose the trip for the itinerary, but also like this size of ship. I prefer ships which can go through the older locks of the Panama Canal and prefer ships without water slides and amusement park type rides because I go on the cruise ships for the places they visit and the convenience of living on the ship between shore visits. I also like having the smaller number of people on the ship, ...

NCL Australia organised a competition that gave the lucky winners a chance to go onboard and see the newly refurbished Spirit, it included a full ship tour, dinner and a show. Firstly, a HUGE thank you to so many people involved in this promotion as it made ...

The staff on Norwegian Spirit were excellent. Especially the dining waiters and cooks. This was helped being the ship was only half full but they were always smiling and helpful with any requests. The food was always fresh, tasty and plenty of variety. Definitely the highlight of our cruise was the island of Moorea. A short boat cruise from the dock took us to a spot waist deep so ...

Polynesia was on our bucket list and the timing for this cruise worked out. We've sailed on Norwegian before and were generally pleased although those were on larger/newer ships. The itinerary was Tahiti to Sydney with stops in Moorea, Bora Bora, Samoa, and FIJI (two stops here at Lautoka and Dravuni). We were a little surprised to get an text message 2 days before sailing about the need to ...

This cruise was on my bucket list to see French Polynesia - Stayed in Forward Aft suite 10001 which is the last suite that I will ever stay in again. There was one outlet in the sitting area and one outlet in the bedroom. No outlets in the bathroom / shower area. The bedroom area had a closet and drawers but you could not access the drawers because they would open into the bed. the access to ...

First , I should state that we were in a suite at the front of the ship so our experience should be seen in that a light . The ship had only 1400 px which I think is a limit number for Tahiti and since there are only 20 or so suites we had certain benefits in getting off for tenders when we wanted , special seating for shows and ability to book dinners perhaps easier . The ship is in great shape ...

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary. This was our cruise that we booked when our March of 2020 COVID cruise was cancelled. Since we were sailing less then ten days prior to them cancelling the cruise, we received a VERY good discount on any cruise we booked. Therefore, I went big and did my dream cruise. Remember for food and shows, every person may have a different opinion. ...

We had always wanted to cruise Alaska and Hawaii and here was a cruise that did both.Prior to this cruise you had to prove that you had had a negative Covid-19 test no more than 3 days prior to sailing. Fortunately we did not have that hassle, unfortunately neither did anyone else, including the ship and it's crew. We did not realize it but the first bad sign came the first morning at breakfast. ...

Took this cruise to enjoy the sights of Alaska and travel to Hawaii, and it started good and rapidly went downhill on the Norwegian Spirit. Ship is old and smaller than others, therefore lacking in good activities and eating establishments. We purchased the Thermal Spa Package only to find, due to the age of the ship, not all of the amenities are present on this ship. Of those available the ...

This was our first "post-COVID" cruise after several others being cancelled, so we were somewhat apprehensive how things would be onboard. For us, it was no problem, because what we like is being outside. So, we wore a mask anywhere inside on the ship outside of our stateroom, but being fully vaccinated and boosted, we did not while outside. We started cruising with Norwegian for the Freestyle ...
