We enjoyed our cruise on the Norwegian Spirit because it is a beautiful ship with elegant decor. We also enjoyed the meals, but were disappointed that passengers were not allowed a lobster meal except with an extra charge. Of all our cruising, this was a bad first. Hope that changes! Staff were excellent and most of the many shore excursions were worth the money. Exception would be the Istanbul excursion (4 and 1/2 hr. tour became 7 hrs. due to extreme traffic, monotone, boring leader, and too much rug showing).
This cruise had many positive features such as wonderful entertainment, good choices for meals, nice dining areas, plus more. I personally would have preferred a second regular swimming pool rather than a heated giant spa-like pool (really too warm for much swimming).
But we had a very pleasant trip, seeing places we had always wanted to see, which made this cruise highly recommended by us.

If you want a seat closer to the center or the front of the Stardust Theater, arrive early. Otherwise you have to climb up to get to seats. Come late and you also have to walk in front of everyone, then walk up the stairs.
