Do not believe all you read. The Spirit is the oldest ship in the NCL fleet. However she has been kept up to there high standards. Service was above average threw out the ship.
Only attended one of the shows, enjoyable and entertaining. Did buy some art while on the ship. Very good Art team on this ship. Not overly pushy and helpful if you decide to buy art from Park West Galleries. This ship gives you the options to stay as busy with activities as you like or just relax.
I do suggest that if you choose your time dinning, that you go to Windows and make reservations so you do not have to stand in line. We choose 6:30 every night and never waited to be seated. If you find a waiter you prefer just ask to be seated in his area.
Smaller then expected, the make up table is small. Had to remove coffee maker to have room. Bathroom is small but usable. If you do not sleep on a firm mattress, the bed will feel hard. Room was kept up nicely by our room Stuart.
Walk around the town and had lunch at a local restaurant.
Interesting and historic tour.
