Sail Date: Mar 2020
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

This was to be the cruise of a lifetime but now it will be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

Even before we embarked, the itinerary had been changed. It was only when I contacted a tour company in Madagascar that I found out that Madagascar had been taken off the itinerary. No communication from NCL, though they were quick enough to send communications about booking tours!

Little did we know as we sailed from Dubai that passengers on another cruise ship were being attacked by locals on Reunion Island as a result of fears of Covid-19. By the time Norwegian Spirit sailed for Abu Dhabi, NCL management should have been aware of this and the deteriorating situation along the line of our itinerary.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony

Excellent recently refurbished cabin. A bit small but very comfortable. Excellent having a separate shower. Spent quite a bit of time in the cabin as most of the ports of call were cancelled.
