Norwegian Spirit
7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 29, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (young children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
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.

Food and Dining

Food was horrible!! The best food was at Blue Lagoon and the service was horrible.

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.

Children's Programs

The childcare was staff was the best staff members on board the ship. They provided the best quality of service.
