Great Cruise

Sail Date: July 10, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship was wonderful. Our cabin was clean and the cabin service was outstanding. The teens loved the animals made out of their beach towels each night. The food was unbelievable, always gourmet, always the right temperature, & the wait staff was superb. But most of all - the entertainment each night was beyond belief. The Duo Volgyi, 2nd City actors, the Broadway singers & dancers, the magic. Most of all, the Elements Show was extraordinary!!!

Pros: Entertainment onboard

Cons: specialty restaurants costing extra per person

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!

Ship Quality
Always clean, really appreciated the lifeboat drill with the explanation of why it needed to be done (for the teens in our group).
Food and Dining
The freestyle cruising is an example of marking genious! Never had to wait for a table, plenty of restaurants for every taste preference. Varied menu & I appreciated it being posted ahead of time so the teens could decide on gourmet or hot wings.
Cabin / Stateroom
When we first arrived, the telephone & safe didn't work but everything was fixed almost before I had hung up the phone to ask for assistance.
Service and Staff
Never had such great service.
Unbelievable - totally fantastic - experiences of a lifetime - what more can I say?
Children's Programs
My teens liked the teen club but complained about so many "12-13" year olds as annoying, LOL
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Private Beach was beautiful & not crowded. Lunch buffet was ok. However, it was not a snorkeling event as depicted - it was a "snorkeling opportunity" in which you had to rent snorkling equipment once you got there plus, for our group, a $100 deposit.
Don't Miss: The beach
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Since we didn't do an excursion here, it was not a good experience. Too many people grabbing & yelling, trying to get you in the stores (merchandise tacky & way too pricey for quality) Would never go back
Cozumel, Mexico
We went to Chankanaab National Marine Park which was wonderful. Beautiful atmosphere, excellent food with more than enough serving size.
Don't Miss: Dolphin Swim Adventure-abosulutely worth every penny.
Belize City, Belize
We didn't do an excursion so we were dropped off at a 2 block area of just shops selling the same thing (purses). One block over, we found outselves in a not too safe area with no warning. Was hot & noisy. Don't go here unless you go on an excursion.
