My husband won this cruise and all we had to do was to pay port charges and tax, etc. He was a first time cruiser and I had cruised four times previously. We only had a few choices and elected to leave from New Orleans so that we could experience the city. I was a little hesitating due to the security issues in Mexico and reading some of the reviews. I was pleasantly surprised as the ship and crew ...

Save your money..... Experienced the following on the cruise: 1. On the 1st evening we returned to our room after dinner to find a note stating that contraband had been found in our luggage and we would have to go to theater to meet with security and retrieve our luggage. Immediately I know that it is for the wine that I had brought with me. I had full intentions on paying the corkage fee.... ...

My husband and daughter just returned from our first NCL cruise to Costa Maya, Roatan, Belize, and Cozumel. We have cruised before with Carnival and absolutely loved everything about it. This time, this particular trip was cheaper with Norweigan than with Carnival so we decided to go with Norweigan. What a huge mistake that was. Let me first start out by saying that we did have fun at most of our ...

Getting on and off the ship was smooth, the weather was great, no bad storms. Food is fair. Cabin OK needs a good cleaning and rust in bathroom.TV bad, but being changed out to flat screens this week. Did not like the comps in the casino, NONE. Bought in $1000.00 a day on the crap table but not even a drink was comped. I don't like the prepaid tip, the staff doesn't seem to go the extra ...

Our Worst and Our Last NCL Cruise Since

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

We were going to NOLA for the French Quarter Festival and decided to take this cruise since we hadn't been to Guatemala or Bermuda. We enjoyed the weather and we enjoyed Guatemala and Bermuda. The ship was lovely however our outside stateroom was in need of updating and repair. The cleaning was not up to par and the stewards were always late. The main dining room had the rudest servers except for ...

Norweigan Spirit Needs a Pep Rally

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Let me first say the cruise was a very nice time, (they always are), however I must say Norweigan Cruise Line has finally disappointed me. I have been on many cruises and the last 4 have been on NCL because I love the freestyle cruising. It is beginning to feel more like a carnival herd of cattle mentality instead of a cruise line where the employees actually care about their jobs. I am going to ...

The most recent reviews of the Spirit NO to Boston are so different from what we experienced that I can't help but wonder if we were on the same boat! This was our second trip on the Spirit and it was even better than the first. When we got to our inside cabin we found the beds together which - in a small cabin - really cuts back on space to move around. So we waylaid our steward and asked that ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Embarkation Day: We flew to NOLA the day of the cruise. Our flight arrived by 12:30. We had prearranged for Airport Shuttle New Orleans to pick us up, and we were transported to the pier quickly and efficiently. Since we had a suite, we had a rapid check-in and our wait to board was nonexistent. In the VIP Lounge, we met Bruce Van Der Boon, our Concierge. He introduced us to our butler, Naveen and ...

A Great Time, but not Perfect

One day on the elevator, someone got on and said, "if you're not having a good time, you have no one to blame but yourself." He was absolutely right. A perfect cruise? No, and there were some glitches and minor complaints, but we had a great time. This was our 7th cruise, but our first on NCL. Previously we've been on Holland America and Cunard. We booked with a Travel Agent as part of a larger ...

On Jan. 31 we left the beautiful and wild port of New Orleans to board the Norwegian Spirit which appeared lovely in port. Found many things different than advertised, no one greeted us with champagne, in fact, most of the personnel does not speak when you pass them. I have cruised 14 times on other lines and found this unusual. Some hallways were elegant, some like school corridors. Raffles ...
