A Not-So-Good Cruise

Sail Date: January 01, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was ok, not the best NCL liner we have sailed on.

Pros: The excursions we took

Cons: Cabin, Staff, Food

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.

Service and Staff
The staff was not friendly and most were not willing to help when asked.
Cabin / Stateroom
There were three adults in the cabin, two elderly parents in their 70's and a daughter, age 50. The cabin was small and had two lower twin beds and one bunk bed. Now, people middle age and older should not have to climb up in a bunk bed, especially people with arthritis and bad knees. Complaints didn't help, the staff just ignored the whole situation. Asked for a window room, we ended up on the bottom floor with a port hole window. The bathroom was way too small, as was the whole room.
Not enough things to do on sail days - no movie theater on ship.
Ship Quality
The ship was ok, not one to brag about.
Food and Dining
Should not be charged a fee to eat in any of the cruise restaurants. Would prefer assigned table and time, free-style dining isn't the way to go. Should have a better selection for 'midnight' snacks and soda pop should be free like coffee, ice tea, etc.
