7 Night Western Caribbean (Port Canaveral Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 09, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 9052
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The Norwegian Spirit is a quietly elegant ship with an interesting Oriental motif and is well-maintained.  The cabin was a bit smaller than other NCL ships we have enjoyed.  It had limited drawer space, but a decent closet.  We particularly liked the glassed in shower and separate toilet area, but would have preferred the hair dryer separate from the bathroom as on other Norwegian vessels.  The dryer wand got so hot we could hardly handle it.  The only big issue for us was a plumbing problem that caused a sewer gas smell in our bathroom and affected the flushing mechanism on the toilet.  The smell was addressed in a timely manner and eventually resolved, but the toilet flusher caused us fits for the entire trip no matter what the crew did to try and resolve the problem. But for the price we paid we felt we got excellent value for our money and would recommend NCL as a good choice in cruising.

Wish there were more changes to the shows. Maybe have several different production shows and scramble them among the fleet? As frequent cruisers on Norwegian we no longer attend most of the shows as we have seen them over and over again.

This was a great port to just walk around the town. Ernest Hemingway's house on Whitehead was a highlight of our day. Also interesting was the Mel Fisher's Treasure Museum that displayed gold and other treasures brought up from a Spanish wreck. Both were in easy walking distance from the pier.
