First, a little background... This vacation is on the ncl Spirit 8/13/-8/20. I traveled with a party of eleven..yes eleven...we had 2 ab suites 10500,10502 and two ac suites 10508, 10512. youngest was 18 oldest was 55. I have been on this same trip from Boston five previous times with all the same people. We have been in regular cabins,and balconies on the Dream.We all love Bermuda and figured this was our last shot at a huge family vacation before everyone went back to college. Here is where it gets exciting....only my sister and my oldest son knew we had suites! I have kept this secret for almost a year!I had to hide all our luggage tags and e docs (he he )and when we got to the pier for embarkation the line was enormous and that's when the fun began! My sister got a hold of an ncl person and they tried to push us in line but then asked what rooms we were in. Within two minutes we had a porter there to take our luggage straight to our suites! I wish I could show you the pictures on the faces of my family! We then breathed through check in and were sent upstairs where we met our fabulous concierge, Bruce V. and our terrific butler "Manny".Bruce told us all the perks and we were sent with "our Butler' to see our suites.The suites were beautiful,spacious and breathtaking. 10502 has two bathrooms and two balconies (not huge but fantastic nonetheless).10500 has the biggest jacuzzi tub and huge balcony and the two ac suites had the showers facing the water, full glass!we took advantage of Cagney's for lunch and Bruce made us reservations for dinner at Windows.Our beloved children used "manny's " services quite a bit during the week and he was always a simple phone call away.Bruce saw to our every whim....need a cab waiting at the pier in Bermuda?ask Bruce...need dinner reservations at Cagney's last minute? ask Bruce...want to sit in the balcony in the theater and not wait in line for any shows or get into the chocolate buffet 15 minutes early? ask Bruce..booking a shore excursion? Bruce will do it for you....We never waited inline for anything, we felt pampered even up to the last hour when Bruce escorts you off the ship early. (again no line) and brings you right to your luggage.He was kind, friendly and always around the ship to help you with anything. Thank you Bruce! Now that i have gone on so long ( sorry) i just want to say that this experience is everything and more that i read about on the boards...i truly loved our vacation and all but the first sea day, the ride and weather were perfect. we yes, all eleven of us even saw whales last night! and we were all together on the two front balconies....what a way to end the last night of a family vacation...Oh and as a side note, my nephew won big in the casino! so ask me any questions and i hope this was helpful to anyone who like me reads the boards and is thinking about a suite life on the ncl Spirit......
