not much for the kids to do (kids club was lame), beautiful pool for the kids but too cold and unuseable,could only go outside 3 days out of 6,ship felt unstable and VERY noisy, closet door banging ALL nite and I wasent the only one! The "private island" was over crowded, shows were lame, service at the sit-down resaurants was non-existant an hour after you order to get your food! i was over charged 2 times when i signed for one price they later added more (try to fight that now). the amount of time in the ports was screwy and we left 1:00pm NO time to relax! Icould go on forever...

way too crowded fighting for a beach chair and sitting shoulder to shoulder is not my idea of vacation, the boats that take you back and forth take FOREVER, remember that they wait to fill-up before they will take you back to the ship.

Pros: the food

Cons: service was terrible, pooland "private island" OVER crowded,VERY rough ride

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.
