7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 24, 2008
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
The ship was obviously older by the decor. What I disliked the most was constantly being sold tear off tickets before every event. The choice of beverages was minimal. Being charged for other beverages, and I don;t mean alcohol. I would have liked a lemonaide or Sprite. Nothing was free, no welcome drink or evening cocktail party. We would have rather paid a little more up front than being nickled and dimed, everytime we wanted something. No midnight dessert fan fair the last evening.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
although I do not think $20 is a nominal fee to dine at a speciality resturant, when dining is included.

mini jeep rides and snorkling. I was a little disappointed in the snorkling, I thought the reefs would be better

Pros: Boarding was very organized

Cons: the sterooms were very dated and sorry to say hideous is color schemes

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.
