We sailed on the Spirit in 2013 for my 60th where better to celebrate my husband's 65th! We loved her then and still do. Appreciated there had been a couple of refurbs and noticed the engine when sitting at rear of Windows wasn't so noise and vibrated less than last time. Staff were very cheerful and used our names especially our waiters in the bars. Food was lovely and can't see why people would complain. Halloween turnip carvings were a work of art! As we're the various fruit and vegetable carvings We had dinner with Murat at the Officers dinner who kept us entertained! Also attended the Latitudes drinks party. Lots of lovely Canapés. On our last day we came back to our room and what a lovely surprise as we found room decorated for my husband's birthday complete with ice bucket and champagne with a lovley card from Armando and Captain Peter. Disappointed though that on our 11day cruise only one was termed "Norwegian Night Out", thought on a cruise of that length there were normally two and expected one on each of our sea days. Also going by the demographic age group of the passengers, special events like the White Hot Party and Halloween started after 10pm. I realise the theatre show doesn't finish until 10.30 and you are fitting em round that but wish there could be some compromise as we even I. Our mid 60s were feeling tired after all our other activities. Shore excursions are too expensive and although we personally don't like doing things ashore in groups, you are along business to the private companies also the $85 charge for transfer the airport is way over the top. Private transfers for 6/ work out st $25/30 per person and we and many others took a well organised bus to airport for $20 per person. These above are my only gripes. Thanks for a wonderful experience

We loved her then and still do. Appreciated there had been a couple of refurbs and noticed the engine when sitting at rear of Windows wasn't so noise and vibrated less than last time.

Staff were very cheerful and used our names especially our waiters in the bars.

Food was lovely and can't see why people would complain.

We had dinner with Murat at the Officers dinner who kept us entertained! Also attended the

Latitudes drinks party. Lots of lovely Canapés.

On our last day we came back to our room and what a lovely surprise as we found room decorated for my husband's birthday complete with ice bucket and champagne with a lovley card from Armando and Captain Peter.
