Have been on 10 Cross Atlantic cruises. This is the worst of 5 on NCL. the Spirit is old and should be retired. Many things did not work. Entertainment was sub par. The staffing was to few to handle the population, but must say worked very hard to keep up. Often ran out of various foods at breakfast and dinner ( no anchovies on Ceaser Salad ). 16 days at sea and only got a chair by the pool ( seldom open )

once before 3:30 pm. Rules never followed any where. Photo of saved chairs, brought to staff and service desk , nothing happened. Some people save 2 sets of chairs at 6:30 am, 2 in sun two in shade, even had a 4 some do 4 and 4. Our room steward had 14 to rooms to do on her own ( wonderful lady ) but also given projects to do at the same time. My entire shower fixture need to be replaced on 1st. day ( no hot water ) many others told me the same. All the multiple cruisers I spoke to all agree, "they will never get n this ship again".Latitudes Member Sliver, now Gold, means nothing for price or service. Have never got an upgrade or any discounts. Bought this a year in advance, everyone else got free stuff if they waited, won't be doing that again. Had planned to celebrate our 40th. Anniversary  on NCL dawn to Bermuda, to happening.

Oh, rules for dress in the dining room, don't bother I may as well been at the beach. Why have them, when no one ever enforces it. Plenty of other places to eat when dressed as one coming to the Gym. Need I go on. STAY AWAY.
