Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2018
Cabin: Inside

Last December 2016 we sailed the Spirit. During the cruise we had concerns which was not addressed on the ship...missed ports charges not refunded, bad bed, cabin ...etc but NCL HO had offered OBC if we would give them a second chance.

We wanted to get away in January and decided to give NCL another chance.

When we booked a guaranteed inside cabin, NCL assigned the cabin 2 days after booking which was a pleasant surprise to be on deck 10 mid ship. We found usually guaranteed inside are assigned prior to sailing and the cabin in the lower deck aft or forward. When we were offered a chance to upgrade we turned it down because we liked where our cabin was.

Cabin Review


Cabin IX

When we arrived at our cabin we were pleasantly surprised as it was mid ship and in a quieter area. We asked the cabin steward not to use chemicals or perfume products due to allergies. The cabin steward was very mindful of our request.

The cabin was small but well organized for efficiency. Smalliest cabin we have ever been in.

The bed was very comfortable and seem to be very new as there was no sagging.

On numerous occasion we had to have the drain in the sink and shower repaired as well as the toilet not flushing. The maintenance crew was very quick in addressing the concerns.

For 3 days there was work on the plumbing in the hallway to address some leakage from the pipes. Brown stains and droplets were seen on the corridor.

Our cabin steward did a great job keeping our room clean even when we had drain and toilet issues in the corridor.
