Sail Date: Oct 2008
Cabin: Balcony

We are in our mid 60's and this was our 7th cruise, second on NCL. Enjoy train travel so we Amtraked from Indiana to Newark, NJ. Spent the night at the Fairfield Inn. Nice clean room for under $130. Hot breakfast included. Saved a bundle by not staying in NYC. Carmel Limo delivered us to the Spirit at 11:30 and we were on board a few minutes after noon.

We were greeted by members of the crew and were offered a glass of champagne. We went to our cabin to drop off the carry on's. The cabin was ready and we programmed the safe and headed to Windows for lunch. Raffles was also available as well as Cagney's for suite passengers.

The NCL Spirit is ten year old and is starting to show her age with a little rust here and there, carpet in a few places that needed to be replaced and my biggest grip was some of the windows in the public areas had moisture between the glass that has either fogged or discolored them. She went into dry dock following our cruise for three weeks having an engine replaced and I hope they will take care of the rust, carpet and windows. We found the ship to be very easy to get around. It has three sets of passenger elevators and never had to wait long to get from one deck to another. The air conditioning throughout the ship was excellent.

Cabin Review


Cabin BC

Cabin 11000 on the Spirit was great. Good A/C, load of storage, great head divided into 3 areas. Shower big enough for a fat man. Not much noise from above. View off the balcony almost puts you on the bridge.
