I love NCL and their philosophy. I've never had a bad experience with them and this cruise reinforced this. The Spirit isn't a new ship, it looks a bit dated in places but the itinerary is great and the service superb. It's the crew who make it special. We had UBP included which was great. Ate only in the general restaurants which worked fine as there was always a good choice and the quality was amazing. Entertainment was OK, nothing special but good cruise ship quality of acts and performers. Pool was busy on sea days and before hitting ports to the point it was impossible to get a sun bed, far too many were 'reserved' with no visible occupants for long spells. Cabin was Mid Ship Balcony on deck 9 which was good size for 2 people with adequate storage and facilities. Good size bathroom with shower. Port itinerary is hectic but we were lucky in that there were a lot of ports where we were the only ship or one of two so nowhere was too crowded. We're already planning our next trip, it will be on NCL.

Great cruise, great itinerary
