don't expect much from ncl!
Norwegian Spirit Cruise Review to Caribbean - Bahamas
Sail Date: April 29, 2007
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
Review Summarythis was our 4th and last ncl cruise, 2 on the dawn were beyond awful! the spirit is a better ship, but don't expect much... the entertainment is low quality... was much better in the past. even the daily activities are the same as previous cruises with ncl. had a very nice experience on the spirit 2 years ago, but we could tell they have cut corners in many places. makes for a very lackluster vacation. again, a very tired rundown ship.
trips not mapped out well, such minimal time in ports... even great stirrup key (their island)... could see no reason why we had to be back on the ship at 12:30 when we were unable to get off the ship until after 8am... not even 1/2 a beach day!
out of my 7 cruises, darin the cruise director was the worst!
there was some sort of fungus growing out of the vent in the bathroom ceiling... they did show up to clean it but tried to tell us it was "just dust". we only cruised with ncl this time because we had a big discount from our 11/06 sailing on the dawn that stayed in norfolk virignia in the rain and cold due to a broken "azipod"... proof that "you get what you pay for"!
