We had reservations in booking with NCL due to another cruise we had with
the company to Hawaii. However, we were delighted with this cruise. The ship is
beautifully decorated, excellent food (although we would have liked a night
of seafood and also a Mexican theme one evening) great waiting staff----
friendly and polite from embarkation to debarkation and some enjoyable performers. We just loved the talents of Arvin and Emily but Angel was also very good. We enjoyed our excursions even with the rain in Cozemel----however, it needs to be noted that there is quite a bit of walking to get to the tourist bus. This was a problem for several people on crutches, walkers, canes. The room was okay until we let out the sofa bed and then there
was very little room to get between the sofa bed and other bed. We would
definitely cruise again and recommend NCL to other people.

Pros: The friendliness of all staff and the decoration of ship and the talents of "Arvin and Emily"

Cons: The cold temperatures aboard and the very loud level of microphones. Also with a sofa that makes into bed made very little room to have in room as well as between the beds. The least favorite of all the shows was "The Second City"

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? Yes!
