Ship is pretty worn, problem with the engine did not allow us to get to NCL's private island. Seems like they charge higher fees for several activities (i.e. two "regular" restaurants, 4 where you pay a service of which is $25 / head). Another example is bingo, it's been a couple years since I've been on a cruise but paing $129 for a session of bingo is a little much especially when the payout if you win is only $200 - $250.

The boat is very worn and in need of some upograding. My understanding is that it is going in for an overhaul in September, 2008...much needed. On the plus side, the crew is very friendly and helpful.

I would not recommend this cruise to anyone who has cruised before, you would be disappointed.

Pros: Crew was nice

Cons: Ship is old and needs to be updated

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.
