A Good Family Trip on the Spirit

This was our second NCL cruise (we have been on several other lines). In general, my husband enjoys the smaller ships more and I can go either way. This was a very different trip for us as we were a family (DH, me ...

Small ship experience; would be good for a first time cruiser.

First things first. As you may have heard before - a cruise is what you make it - I believe that anyone can get on any ship and with the right attitude can have a good time. I just got off of the Norwegian Spirit ...

Had a blast on the Spirit!

We were able to take the Spirit on her March 12th Eastern Caribbean itinerary. The Spirit was the smallest ship we'd ever cruised on, and it turns out we like the smaller ships just fine. She has an Asian decor ...

Worst Cruise Ever

This was about our 45th cruise and it was the worst. We like the small to mid size ships, so the size of the ship was not an issue. We have had many great cruises on the Sun. The issue on this ship was the food ...
