Unforgettable Cruise!

Sail Date: July 16, 2006

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Balcony

The Norwegian Spirit is beautifully decorated with an Asian theme.

Pros: Beautiful Ship, Excellent Entertainment, Perfect Weather

Food and Dining
With Freestyle Dining, we loved not having to eat at a specific time. We did, however, miss the personalized service you get with having the same waiter each night. A couple of times we felt a bit rushed because of the amount of people waiting to get into the dining room. The food was good, nothing fabulous.
Ship Quality
Every area was spotlessly clean and well-maintained.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a beautiful stateroom with balcony (the only way to cruise!). Our two kids had a roomy, outside stateroom with 3rd pull down bed which one used while the other had a double bed. We were perfectly positioned in the middle of the ship near an elevator. We did have some daily minor issues (dirty cups not removed, newsletter not received, etc.) with our cabin service which was disappointing but our kids had perfect service in their cabin.
Service and Staff
Each staff member we spoke with was friendly and helpful.
The evening entertainment was excellent and professional. The last couple of times on Royal cruises we felt the entertainment was of high school quality. The Spirit's song and dance group was wonderful and the comedy was great. Our teenagers spent their days playing ping pong, basketball and golf, and in the large video arcade.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Fun beach party at night! The next day we enjoyed the beautiful, clear, warm water on our floating mats.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Spent a few hours at Coco Beach. The beach area was a bit littered.
Nassau, Bahamas
We decided to stay on the ship while in Nassau (we've been there on previous cruises) and enjoy the relative peace and quiet of the pool area.
