Our first cruise was with Norwegian on the Dream, it was great. This time the food was not good, the male staff except for the casino and Blue Lagoon were almost grumpy, like it was an effort to get you a drink or serve you. We had a great time at the casino, the staff was great. Other than not following rules land casino's use and the frustration of the tournament seat changes it was great. I would recommend a cruise on Norweigan just not sure about the Spirit.

Pros: The casino was great, dealers and staff were friendly and fun to play with. Needed help with the tournaments, seat changes were made for no reason causing people to loose out on hands, moving from just posting blinds to having to post again, official rules should be followed.

Cons: Food - left much to be desired. Cagney's was great, Blue Lagoon was good and their staff was very nice, the buffet was not very appealing and always had a wait for Windows or the Garden Room. Recommend major food changes be made.

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.

Service and Staff
Hard to rate, our stateroom people were great, the casino and Blue Lagoon were great. Bar tenders, buffet staff and some of Garden Room staff were not friendly.
Food and Dining
Cagney's and Blue Lagoon were good. Always had a wait for Windows and the Garden room, buffet was not good at all. To get a reservation at specialty resturants was not easy, we were never able to get into the Italian rest because it was always booked.
Ship Quality
We felt movement on the whole time, swells were high. I don't know a bigger ship would have made a difference. We were on the sixth floor and to get to our room from the rear of the boat we had to go to floor seven or five and the up or down to get to our room. Didn't care for that.
Cabin / Stateroom
Cozumel, Mexico
Shop,shop,shop, it was great.
Don't Miss: Enjoyed all the stops, they are beautiful places
Belize City, Belize
Mayan Ruins were great
Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala
The whole island was beautiful
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Iguana Farm, West End really neat
