Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 6076

I chose this ship because of the itinerary.  It hit all the spots my family wanted to see.  However, aside from the excursions, the ship want nothing to brag about.  The entertainment consisted of all music and dance shows, and the magician was less than magical.  Everything else was extremely expensive to fill the time.  The ship is extremely dated (18 years old).  The recent renovations were actually just repairs, not upgrades.  Couldn't plug in a blow dryer, leaking faucets with mostly cold water (and showers!), hard beds, no iConcierge service, spotty wifi - that you pay an arm and a leg for....thank goodness we spent most of our time site seeing.  My family was so bored in the evenings, we went to beg by 9pm.  Absolutely nothing fun on the fun ship!!!

Cold water, took the plumber two days to fix. Hard beds, needed 7 pillows delivered to sleep on it.

The tour guide left us in Pisa and we had to pay 180 euro to get to Florence on our own. Great tour...
