CruiseMates' Readers Cruise Reviews

Norwegian Cruise Line Norwegian Spirit Western Caribbean February 13, 2005

Food was good although I didn't like the free-style cruising as there was a mix of formal,informal, and casual at every dinner. The dining staffs in both the Garden Room and Windows were friendly and efficient. The menus, however, consisted of about five general menus repeated. We finally ate at Raffles to have some change. We enjoyed the fish and chips at Henry's Pub Lunch, and the menu at the Blue Lagoon. The entertainment in the Moulin Rouge was fine except that we were on a fourteen day cruise (two cruises listed as one) and the shows that were wonderful the first time were repeated.

Also the show band music that was supposed to accompany the performers was so loud that it made it next to impossible to hear the vocalists. The loud hip-hop, rap music in the pool area was ear numbing and it began at 7:00 a.m. so there was no respite from it. It was geared to younger passengers although 75% of the passengers were over the age of 50. There was no place to just sit outside and read unless you were lucky enough to find one of the few chairs on the seventh deck. Overall, I would only recommend this cruise for persons under the age of 45.
