small ship and nasty staff

Sail Date: May 31, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship was clean and the food was ok. Most of the staff were unfriendly. At checkout we found out that we had to pay a $10.00 per person per day gratuity ( 4 people times 8 days). They do not let you in the dining rooms with shorts after 5pm but their flier says you can dine the way you like. Only one adult pool that is very small and one tiny pool for children. Good luck trying to get a seat at the pool. Three days at sea and hardly any poolside entertainment.

Pros: only the excursions were good.

Cons: unfriendly staff, hidden charges at the end, only one pool and not enough seating

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.
