My wife and I are seasoned cruisers, having over the last 20 years plus enjoyed 41 previous cruises all around the world. None of them will be remembered so vividly as this one but sadly not for the right reasons.
This cruise on the Norwegian Spirit was our 1st with N.C.L. for 18 years, the last time cruising the Hawaiian islands on board the Star. After this experience it will most certainly be our last.
As is normal for us we did a pre- cruise stay in Dubai. We really enjoyed our 2 night stay there and then on to the ship. We embarked the Spirit at about 5.30 p.m and went straight to our cabin, we were never offered a Muster drill, which we found odd. From that point things started to go down hill (slowly at first) but boy did it pick up speed. It was only when on board that we learned that Nosy be (Madagascar) had been cancelled. I inquired at the Guest Relations desk if there were to be any more problems en route and was told that they had no information about any more cancellations and indeed to make up for the loss of Madagascar from the itinerary that N.C.L had arranged for us to enjoy an extra stop in the Seychelles. We then settled into our cruise and enjoyed our time in the Emirates looking forward to the lovely Seychelles.
Cabin was clean and had been recently been refurbished,but it was small with limited storage. Shower was good.....
