Review summary

Great venue. Food and service were first class.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Looking to just relax spent many an hour in the spas and pool. There are plenty of other activities available to keep you amused including children.


4 out of 5
Generally the entertainment was first class, productions were especially well presented. Loved a young duo from Columbia and the house band who played a wide variety of music.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our room steward looked after us extremely well. All staff either service, bar or waiters provided a great servuce and engaged well on all occasions.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Some previous reviews of The Norwegian Spirit were not overly complimentary based on the ships age. However we found both the layout, maintenance and overall presentation of the ship to be first class. We are already planning to again sail on "The Spirit" again in 2019.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Cabin is compact however well laid out and suited to our requirements considering we only slept in it. Loved the separate toilet. One suggestion would be to either take out or move the fridge and provided more room for the desk and chair.
