My wife contracted Covid aboard the Norwegian Spirit during cruise of Alaska and Hawaii. She died aboard the Norwegian Spirit on Friday, September 8, 2023. She died in the ship's infirmary one day after being admitted for breathing difficulty. The treatment I received from the crew and the cruise line has been absolutely deplorable. It is evil. It was mind-boggling and made the worst experience of ...

Really Nice Ship geared for adults

My wife and I really enjoyed the ship. Excellent food, excellent staff and first rate facilities on board. The ship is amazingly clean and the staff is very attentive. Drawbacks include the use of Coffee Mate in all restaurants instead of real half and half, cabins that are a bit smaller than expected and an interior cabin with much too much furniture inside. The fold out bed for a 3rd or 4th ...

Wonderful Cruise, but no so great for Teens

Overall this was an amazing trip, full of once-in-a lifetime memories with friends and family. Our family cruises frequently and have cruised on Disney, Royal Caribbean, and NCL. This was only our second time on NCL and overall we had a wonderful time on the Spirit. The only downside was that we were traveling with our 14 YO son, and this cruise is definitely not the best for kids or teens - ...

Disappointed with NCL Spirit

We went on a cruise to Hawaii last year with NCL Pride of America and loved it even though 1/3 of the restaurants and facilities were closed due to (Covid) staffing. We had a fantastic cruise and what was open was superb. I cannot say the same about NCL Spirit! Our cabin was ok but clearly not refurbished. The bathroom vanity was cracked with a jagged edge and sticking out, the trash receptacle ...

First time on Norwegian but a frequent cruiser. I've done 32 cruises across other brands, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Virgin, and Avalon for river cruising. The Spirit is an old ship, but completely gutted and refurbished in 2020 or 2022, depending on who you talk to. The public spaces and my room appeared fresh and the furnishings are in good condition. I paid for the ship ...

I am remiss that I have not sailed an Alaskan inside passage cruise before but I will definitely book this cruise again. Loved sailing out of Vancouver. Very easy to navigate in the city and take the water ferry to Granville Market if you can. Such a great place to visit. Boarding the ship was easier than expected. Advice, bring your global entry card and board early to skip the crowd. Got to ...

Boring and awful food

My husband and I went on this Alaska Cruise and were so excited about it. It did the basics as far as transporting us from one city to the next to see Alaska best but thats about all it did. We enjoyed Alaska and the towns we stopped at, but the cruise itself was less than average. This cruise isn't for people that like lively environments. 90%% of the passengers were over the age of 60 years old ...

First of all, their website is NOT very user friendly. The customer service is actually pretty bad with helping or answering questions. Our restroom smelled like sewer The entire week. One time our toilet wouldn’t flush for over a half hour. Common toilets smelled like sewer back up also. The shore excursions are way overpriced so we arranged our own. Help desks were not staffed for most of the ...

We didn’t purchase the cruise our children purchased it for my wife and I for our 30th wedding anniversary. So I can’t say why the went with NCL. What I can say is that everything was just perfect. The cabins were clean everyday new towels if you wanted. Every ship employee was very pleasant. From the cruise director Jerry all the way down to the as they called them the washy washy girls at the ...

Premium Dining: Before cruise, at least I couldn't find a way to reserve, prior to the cruise. This feature have a few items that will still have extra charge. First of all website don't have specific instructions about premium dining. At least I was not able to reserve before the cruise departure. If there is a feature, is not clear enough. With premium dining you can have ONLY 1 ...
