8 Night Eastern Caribbean (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 31, 2008
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 9 years ago
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.

we were told that you could wear shorts to dinner. the ships flier states dine how you like, where you like. They would not let us in the dining rooms with shorts.
