28 days of rest aboard the Spirit

Sail Date: October 24, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Inside

We had a lovely rest aboard the ship.  The Norwegian Spirit needs a lot of re-doing.  The staff was lovely for the most part; however, we saw many of the staff not  paying proper attention to clearing tables in the Buffet area.  The ship was very disorganized.  Getting off was horrible. 


Announcements cannot be heard in your staff room or for that matter on deck.  This is terrible and needs immediate attention.  There was never enough chaise lounge chairs.  Fits were witnessed because of this.


We found the office staff disorganized and this created issues.  Entertainment was not par for such a long voyage.  We would never travel the spirit again.


The executive chief was great, food was good.  Old ship, certainly not representative of how Norwegian works.  Never had any issues on any of their other ships and we have travelled most.  It was worth what we paid.

Cabin / Stateroom
Move the hair dryer from the bathroom to desk. Very hard to operate in small space. Our cabin steward was excellent.

Do not travel to Istanbul on the 29th of October. Very disappointing not to see the Grand Bazar. This day is a national holiday in Istanbul. Wonderful place wish the ship could have stayed longer.
