7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 09, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
I would recommend the ship to couples and not families. I do not feel the ship child care workers like their job. However the manager did step in and help at one point, we are every greatful. As a grandma this hurt my heart. Everything else was good to great! The other staff did make up for it. We will sail again but my daughter (that paid for everyone) said not as the big family vactaion.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I loved every part of the ship but the child area could use some work on being friendly from mr. happy happy and mr. eggs and baceee. The big guy from the usa with glasses could use alot of help. Manager was nice and other tall guy was nice to. But knowone looked happy!

the poeple seemed a little to pushy but it was ok. We went to the beach and shopped

Pros: the staff of the eating areas Mr. eggs and baceeee, Mr. Happy Happy and Mr. natty natty and the staff of the Blue Lagoon. Being that my daughter had 4 kids under the age of 5 on the trip the staff was so helpful with drinks, food cutting food and anything that we needed.

Cons: I feel that the child care area could use so help BAD. With it being a family trip with 10 people and 4 rooms the kids were very excited. I feel that kids should not have to be perfect all the time with a possibility or being kicked out unless they are fighting or things like that.

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!
