Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship was very beautiful and clean. However, I was extremely disappointed in the fact that there was not a family pool. The ship had two small pools for nearly three thousand people which resulted in over populated pools. The kid pool was very nice but small. The kid pool was not available to parents that wanted to swim and play with their children. The "adult only pool" was not an option for swiming due to the massive number of people packed into a small pool.

Pros: activities

Cons: food quality -- the food choices were very limited, lacked flavor and service was poor

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.

Food and Dining
Food was horrible!! The best food was at Blue Lagoon and the service was horrible.
Ship Quality
The ship had a great variety of activities for all age groups. The only con was that most of the parties were scheduled late in the evening which resulted in an issue for parents with small children. Childcare after 10:30pm was an extra expense and was difficult for parents to attend due to the need for children to go to bed. Also, the majority of the events were entertaining but you had to stand due to lack of seating.
Cabin / Stateroom
Room was small but efficient. The Porter and housekeeping staff was wonderful.
Service and Staff
Children's Programs
The childcare was staff was the best staff members on board the ship. They provided the best quality of service.
Cozumel, Mexico
The beachs of Cozumel are a " must do" activity. We had a wonderful day and can't wait to go back.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Loved it!!!!!
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Snorkeling was the best adventure!!!! The guides were disorganized but overall the experience was amazing.
Belize City, Belize
The Ruins were very interesting and a "must do" adventure.
