7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: September 04, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The staff was great. Kyle, the cruise director, and Johnny, his assistant, worked really hard to make this a fun cruise. Tropical Storm Lee cut our trip short by two days, and Kyle and Johnny tried to work in all of the entertainment throughout the shortened cruise. However, I would have liked to see NCL trying to make it up to us through offering a couple of glasses of free wine or soda when we boarded.

Food and Dining

Really good food, except the desserts were merely average.

Standard for any cruise in this price range. Some originality would have been welcomed.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. We've sailed three other cruise lines but this was the best in terms of the ship staff!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was spotless during the entire trip!

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We always book an inside cabin since we never spend any time in there. The steward kept everything looking great.

Everyone goes here. We've visited five times now, but the snorkeling was something new to us. Lot of fun.
Don't Miss: Palmera's Restaurant

Great beaches. Nice quiet day by crystal clear water.
Don't Miss: The beach.

Pros: The staff was super friendly! The decor was a touch above Carnival as was the food.

Cons: The desserts were a bit bland. The entertainment was pretty much what you'd expect to see. A few more original ideas would have been nice.
