we had an overall really great time on this cruise. it was my first time. though i was reluctant to go at all, i was having a really good time within minutes of boarding. the convenience of parking at the pier was great with a short walk to the boat. embarking from manhattan is something everyone should do. i was blown away. food was generally always available and it was mostly impressive. the portions at the restaurants were just right for us. if we were still hungry or just wanted something else, the buffet took great care of us! beer and drinks are expensive but our final bill was less than we expected. even though i was on vacation i worked out every day. the exercise equipment was top notch and made it fun with great view of ocean and tv on every machine. disinfectant was always available and encouraged by the crew. excursions were fun. disembarking was a total drag and was the only sour part of the trip.

Pros: good food

Cons: disembarkation

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!
