Very pleased by cleanliness and pleasant staff. The ship was well kept and beautiful!

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
As I expected, small but manageable. Very comfortable beds, location (Deck 11) close to everything.
Children's Programs
Only used once again friendly staff and nice area.
Ship Quality
The ship layout was great and so was the cleanliness - the only thing that could have made it better was a bigger pool area or another adult pool area. Not enough room for 2000 passengers to enjoy poolside time.
Food and Dining
The food was very good - lots of variety. Freestyle dining is great - eat when you want. Restaurants were beautiful.
Service and Staff
Excellent - I did not walk past a staff member who did not make a nice comment - "have a nice day" or something kind. Very impressed.
The crew does a nice job of entertaining and getting involved. Loved the evening news letter - very helpful for following days activities.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Not a must see - had a nice visit to Cocoa Beach. Would have skipped to enjoy more time at Great Stirrup Cay.
Nassau, Bahamas
Must do an excursion or stay on the boat. We got off to do the beach thing on our own - not a good idea. We were shuffled to a water taxi - once loaded we had to wait a half an hour to leave and then they told us we would be dropped off right on beach (lied) we had to walk an additional 20 minutes. It was a mess - should have stayed on the ship - we were totally aggravated.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
This was excellent! The nighttime trip over was awesome - so much fun. The bad thing was the day was very short - this really needs to be extended somehow - it would have made the trip so much better. Snorkeling there was awesome.
