The Spirit appealed to me in many respects. It is small, comfy and has many aspects of a traditional ocean liner rather than a floating resort. The crew was a delight. I sailed on her in 2016 and 2018 prior to her 100 million dollar refit. I feared for her future as a smaller and older ship and was delighted to learn that Norwegian had invested a huge sum to upgrade her and reconfigure her as an adult ship for longer itineraries. Kudos to Norwegian
The Spirit has (had?) one of the grandest, prettiest dining rooms at sea, the Windows Dining Room aft with huge windows overlooking the stern. Both cruises were the same. This room was very busy on the first two nights. By mid cruise it was half empty and stayed that way.
