The itinerary was great. Most serving, entertainment staff were great people that made this old cruise ship gaining a reputation for good friendly service.
The highlight is a trios, Soul Brothers singing many 60, 70 and a few recents hit without any preparations.
Food although better than Pride of America is just pass the acceptable standard. Oriental food with the exception of 2 dishes were just not eatable. A Japanese salad appetiser and the fried rice in the buffet was of very high standard. But why the other oriental complimentary food is so bad, I just can’t fathom. Is it to force us to go to the other pay Restaurants ?!. Finally the captain report were so brief and uninteresting, may as well just read by a better English speaker.
The drink packages were so expensive( because you and your cabin partner) must also buy the same package even though usually the wife is a non drinker) This policy is encouraging heavy drinking and single drinks cost is like a 5 star hotel range. Cocktails ave. $14 includes gra and etc.
And finally for the low price of the cruise, NCL will recover from your shore excursions, as it is 30 to 35 % higher than land base excursions companies.
The Filipino staff at the karaoke should be sack for being so rude to many non whites cruisers. Manager keeps an eye on angry man.
BTY, an earlier review by other about Spirit (Southampton to Venice) missing port of call was incorrect. That was an Iceland cruise. I heard a Royal Navy ship (maybe a destroyer or ? no idea) listed 47 degree !!! at that storm. A fellow cruiser’s son was in that ship.
Pretty good. Toilet flush is very noisy, like air flights.
