6 Night Bahamas & Florida (New York Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 28, 2006
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago
We thought that the ship was really nice. We had a very smooth ride (even when it stormed one night, the ship did not rock nearly as much as other ships we have been on). It was really clean and well-decorated. Our only complaint was that on some floors, the aft, mid, and forward sections of the ship were not connected, so you would have to go either up or down a couple floors to get to another part of the ship.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Quality of food was great. Service was hit or miss. Lunch hours were far too short.

Entertainment

3 out of 5
A couple of the guests were really great, but the ship's dance/singing company was sub-par compared to what we have seen on other ships. Their voices, especially, were unimpressive. We really liked the adult improv show and wished there were more late-night adult-oriented shows like that-- some of the comedians were definitely less funny than they could have been since they were trying to appeal to all ages.

The band by the pool was really good too.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
Many staff members were amazing, but there were a few bad apples who acted as if they were inconvenienced by passengers.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Again, the layout was our only real complaint.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Biggest bathroom and room we have been in on a cruise ship. Very clean.

We went to Typhoon Lagoon, a Disney waterpark and had a great time!

We walked around town and the Atlantis before going to the beach for a little bit. We wish we had had more time there!

Beautiful beach... we wandered a bit past the main crowded area of the beach so that we could enjoy swimming and sunbathing in a more peaceful area. The nighttime beach party the first night was fun, and it was nice how Norwegian provided free food on the island. Again, though, we wish we could have stayed later into the day-- leaving our two main ports by 2pm two days in a row really cut down on sun/swimming time!

Pros: Our room was really spacious, and the public areas on the ship were all very nice.

Cons: It was difficult to get reservations at the specialty resaurants.
