We had a wonderful time on the cruise. It was a good thing we did an excursion on the first 3 stops. Costa Maya had a small shopping area with a swim up bar and pool, once you got past it there was nothing. We did the Jungle Beach excurssion and really enjoyed it. The ride was long however, 45-50min. Santo de Tomas really needs a pier, getting off on the shipping dock was not that appealing. We did here however it should be done within the next 6 months. The Amitique Bay Resort excurssion was just right for us. The kids had a great time (ages 11, 9 and 6). Belize was great, the Altun Ha, Mian Ruins were impressive. I would do it again. Shopping here was great. Cozumel was nice the best of the 4. I definately recomend the Dolphin excurssion. All in all the experiences we had were good to excellent.

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was a little smaller than we had thought it would be and compared to the ones we had been on in the past. I think the amount of specialty restaurants was a little annoying. There were many hallways that were impassible because of the restuarants.
Cabin / Stateroom
The size and privacy of the restroom was surprising. All in all a good size room.
Children's Programs
It is too bad there was no consideration to move up a child to the older group when there birthday was within a month. All worked out fine, however my son would have like to be up with his brother.
Food and Dining
From the buffet to the main dining room to the specialty restaurant, everything was very good.
Service and Staff
Issac in the Windows main dining room went above and beyond to make our experience the best. Thank you!
Shaina and her staff at Columbian Emeralds always made us laugh and were very helpful when we were deciding what to purchase or not.
Meloney and staff in the art gallery were very informed on the art they had there. It made it much easier to buy the pieces we bought, because we knew what it was.
