  3. Norwegian Spirit
We have been on the Spirit before. Actually we have been on 5 NCL ships. However, this time, the Spirit needs to go in for an overhaul, sooner rather than later. If your room was at the back of the ship, the extreme shaking and vibrations from the engine were quite unbelievable. While you were swayed by waves in the other parts of the ship.....we were in a giant mixmaster, complete with rattling and banging of everything in our room when the ship picked up speed. We lost much sleep on this trip. As for the tender ports ...two of them....Hopefully you don't mind taking 2-3 hours to get off the ship. Only people with NCL excursions had no complaints about this. Everything else on the ship is fine, other the odd rude employee which you can get anywhere. But your room is an integral part of the vacation, and NCl should have spoken to all who were complaining and having this experience. DON'T get a room in the back if you have to take this ship. Otherwise, avoid taking it at all.

Engines and tenders were big issues
