7 Night Bermuda (Boston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 05, 2009
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 8 years ago
This was our first time on NCL, we've been on Royal Caribbean and Celebrity before.
The ship itself was nice enough with the usual amenities. WE found the food wait staff to be universally slow; slow enough that it was annoying. One more than one occasion, we had to ask when our orders were coming out. This was true if we were in the main dinning room or in one of the specialty, extra charge restaurants.
We dined in the specialty steak restaurant. It was more like Outback than The Capital Grill. The Asian restaurant was good, not exceptional. The best was the French Bistro, validated by the fact that the ship's officers were dinning there as well.
The ship experience was no so wonderful that I would want to do it again when going to Bermuda. I'd fly and spend more time on the beach

Very slow service and average food

Again, mostly what you'd expect. The one bright spot for us was a woman folk singer in the English pub

A bit out of the way, Hamilton would be better

Pros: Bermuda beaches are some of the best in the world

Cons: Food service on the NCL Spirit was universally slow

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.
