Norwegian Spirit

October 2015 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean

28 days of rest aboard the Spirit

We had a lovely rest aboard the ship.  The Norwegian Spirit needs a lot of re-doing.  The staff was lovely for the most part; however, we saw many of the staff not  paying proper attention to clearing tables in the Buffet area.  The ship was very disorganized.  Getting off was horrible. 


Announcements cannot be heard in your staff room or for that matter on deck.  This is terrible and needs immediate attention.  There was never enough chaise lounge chairs.  Fits were witnessed because of this.


We found the office staff disorganized and this created issues.  Entertainment was not par for such a long voyage.  We would never travel the spirit again.


The executive chief was great, food was good.  Old ship, certainly not representative of how Norwegian works.  Never had any issues on any of their other ships and we have travelled most.  It was worth what we paid.

Norwegian Getaway

September 2014 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

My Birthday on the new Getaway

My husband and I have been cruising Norwegian for a long time.  We have had the pleasure of enjoying most of their splendid ships.


The Getaway is a beautiful ship filled with many activities and dining experiences.  This ship is definitely geared to the South Florida Hispanic population.  It even has a special dining area where wonderful Cuban food is served.  We truly enjoyed this. We found the Cagney Restaurant not we had previously experienced.  This was very disappointed as there are additional charges to eat in this restaurant.


The only major disappointment is the pool for adults.  As this ship holds 4,000+ passengers, and our cruise was not even full, trying to find space in the adult pool area is impossible.  Our recommendation is to add another pull on deck 16 or wherever as soon as Norwegian can.  When sunning or touring all day, the pool is something you wish to enjoy.  Too many people were saving lounges and chairs, there was no control over this making it a very difficult task in searing for areas in the sun to enjoy.


Children will love this ship, many activities-especially the Nick entertainment.  We saw this and wishes our younger granddaughter was with us.


All in all, a good choice for the money.  Perhaps a review of how long it took to get to a Port as well as the amount of time that could have been enjoyed in St. Marten a nicer place to visit and shop.  Nassau has little to offer.

ccsuds's Tips

Istanbul, Turkey - Do not travel to Istanbul on the 29th of October. Very disappointing not to see the Grand Bazar. This day is a national holiday in Istanbul. Wonderful place wish the ship could have stayed longer.
Nassau, Bahamas - Dirty, nasty and very, very expensive. Do not waste your money to shop there.
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - Must visit and enjoy the excellent Cuban food on upper deck. Cannot remember the name.
