Norwegian Spirit

Cabin Type: Balcony

Cabin Number: 9606

Traveled As: Couple

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Review Summary

The ship was smaller and average. Our balcony cabin had a host of problems. Safe didn't work, ac was inefficient, there was a constant sewage smell in our bathroom and the shower stall was mildewed and a real eyesore. Our room attendant was very caring and helped us get thru the list of issues as did guest services. I ended up with a room credit as they agreed our room problems were above average. We eneded up agreeing to allow them to do some maintenance on the shower which meant we were unable to use our shower for 24 hours but they gave us access to one in a different cabin. The foo was aerage, buffets crowded at times. Specialty restaurants were terrific. Lots of great ports to see! It is misleading that you are in Venice for 2 days, simply untrue..if you really want to see Venice its best to fly in the extra day early to be able to have enough time. All in all it was a great price and super intinerary
