Norwegian Spirit

OVERVIEW: BecauseNorwegian Spiritis quite a stunning ship and offers a wide choice of dining venues, keeping consistency of product delivery will depend on the quality of the staff. There are many extra-cost items in addition to the extra-charge dining spots, and announcements that never end.

By Wright, leeds on 20th Apr 2014
The Ventura cruise ship was clean and the food choice good in the self service restaurant which we used most of the time although the food was not always as hot as we would like. We had good weather for the majority of the cruise and enjoyed doing our own...  Read More >>

Answer by Hornsby, Solihull (11 Aug 09 22:10) to a QUESTION by Finnemore (11 Aug 09 08:38)
According to the Thomson brochure "Except for formal nights, the dress code is smart casual, which means full length trousers and an open necked shirt/polo shirt for men and equivalent attire (e.g. casual separates or dresses) for ladies."...... My husband, along with many others, usually wore smart short sleeved open necked shirt. Some men still like to wear suits or jackets but most do not. We found most people made an effort to look smart, (no jeans)....... I find the words "smart casual" do seem to have different meanings with various cruise lines..... I think Thomsons have got it right where people make an effort to look good, but not too formal (except the Captain's Cocktail party where dinner jacket or tuxedo is the norm but a suit and tie is acceptable.)

In my experience, the dress code on Thomson in the dining room is much smarter than on Royal Caribbean, where half the men wore jeans and t shirts. These were not to be seen at all on Thomson, which was definitely 'smart casual' rather than 'casual'! The ladies were pretty dressy every night too.

As McBlain's answer. For fellers, formal night mostly DJs but smart suit not out of place. Other nights long pants & a collared shirt are fine. ........Chris
