We had a nice time on our cruise. The staff on the Norweigian Spirit did a great job interacting with the guests. For the most part, the staff is very responsive to any questions or complaints.
Our main complaints would be the cleanliness of the bathroom and the quality of the food.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
Overall, we were disappointed with the food. The buffet was not good at all. The food in the two main dining rooms were okay, but there was little variation on the menu from day to day. We really enjoyed the Asian restaurant. The steakhouse was overpriced ($25/pp) for the quality of food served. The one place we really enjoyed was Blue Lagoon which served hot dogs and burgers. We ate here several times.
We also noticed that as the week went on, the service became slower and slower.

We really enjoyed the productions put on each night. Our favorite, by far was the a cappella group, Cats Pajamas. The shows were not long and perfect entertainment.
The only complain we had with the entertainment was the lack of entertainment during the day. On one of our days at sea, it was rainy and we were unable to sit by the pool. We found a hard time finding something to do.

Cabin / Stateroom

We had a balcony room. I was surprised at how small the room was. However, once we got settled, we got used to the layout. The bathroom was rather disgusting. It was old and dirty. There was a persistent smell throughout most of the trip. Also, many spots in the bathroom were really rusty. I wish I had brought a pair of shower shoes for the shower!
