This was my first cruise on NCL (my wife's fourth). The food was the biggest disappointment. To get better quality food there were Cover Charges at all the ship's "specialty" restaurants.

Pros: Staff

Cons: Food

Recommends Norwegian Spirit? No.

Food and Dining
Food was boring. The Italian selections (esp. eggplant parmesan) and American (turkey with dressing and gravy) were tasteless. We discovered the majority of the ship's chefs were Filipino or of other Asian descent so it was not hard to understand their unfamiliarity with other types of cuisine.
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
Smaller than most ships
Service and Staff
Cozumel, Mexico
We were able to see more of the town than any of the other ports so was much more enjoyable.
Belize City, Belize
Had fairly nice time on the snorkeling tour, although the water was pretty choppy so was not clear to see the coral, etc. and there were high winds so we only had a short time for snorkeling. Again, were confined to the small pier area and unable to venture out in the city.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
We were pretty confined to the pier area so didn't see much of the city.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Took the island tour and was pretty disappointed. Not sure why this port is on the itinerary.
