Sail Date: Jul 2005
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

We were on the Norwegian Spirit inside passage cruise from Seattle to Alaska on July 16 - 23, 2005. We thoroughly enjoyed this as our first cruise and would recommend Norwegian Spirit without reservation.

Boarding and Debarkation: We took the Norwegian shuttle from the Seattle airport to the wharf without incident. The Norwegian representatives were readily identifiable and the walk to the shuttle bus was easily manageable after we had checked our bags for transport to the ship. At the wharf we were checked in efficiently and were on board within about 30 minutes after we arrived there. In Ketchikan we encountered a lengthy line (maybe a hundred or so passengers) to reboard the ship because we waited until the last half-hour or so to come in, but this wasn't a problem in the other ports where we came back a little earlier. Security seemed good with recorded pictures and ship-issued ID cards used at the boarding gangway. We waited as instructed for debarkation when we returned to Seattle and were able to leave the ship in a timely fashion for return to the airport.

Stateroom: Our stateroom was quite adequate in size for two. We had a queen bed, small sitting area and a private balcony in our room, and an adequate sized bath and shower. Water pressure was a little low at times but hot water was always adequate (once we figured out how to adjust the controls). Shelf, drawer and closet space were adequate for two, but no more. The bed was quite comfortable. Service from the stewards was good although we really didn't ask for anything extra.
