7 Night Bermuda (Boston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 19, 2009
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 8 years ago

The ship design was unique and very modern. The people on the ship were rude and unfriendly.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
There are many specialty restaurant options, dining times are up to the passengers, food quality was average to below average in quality though variety in the seated restaurants was good.


3 out of 5
The quality of the entertainment was average. Some parts of the shows were good, other parts were very un-entertaining. Most dancer/singers of the main cast lacked energy and passion in their performance.

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Friendly staff members were extremely few and far between. Smiles were non-existent. The staff made us feel as if we were an inconvenience to them. They did not respond when we said "Thank you." The staff members were short in conversation. One waiter, Albert Careloria, was particularly rude and unfriendly. This is the worst service I have experienced in my six cruises with NCL.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship has been recently remodeled (2008) and contained many unique features not found on other NCL ships.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Stateroom was average size and quality. Nothing remarkable.

There are fairly few events going on in Bermuda. King's Wharf is under-developed for tourism. There is only one real city, Hamilton, and even in this city there is not a whole lot going on; pretty much a waste of time. The caves are interesting to see even if you have seem caves before. St. George has interesting historical things to see such as an unfinished church begun in the 1800's and an old fort (fee for entry). Eating and drinking on the island is very expensive. Meals run around $16, beer will cost around $7 a pint, and a pina coloda will cost around $8.50.
Don't Miss: The biggest attractions include forts, Crystal and Fantasy Caves, and the beaches.

Pros: The ship design

Cons: The service of the wait-staff

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.
