Getting to a destination
We sailed on the NCL Spirit between 3rd January and 13th January. The ship was very old but well looked after. Entertainment was okay however the main thing was the constant sales tactics. Prices for drinks was very expensive and even something as simple as bingo tickets would cost you 20 dollars. I was also disappointed that three ports we left at 230 which was a little rushed. I suspect this was due to NCL wishing you to spend more on board. Can not fault the crew who were all amazing and the food was awesome. We did not try the speciality restaurants but heard from other passengers they were okay. We enjoyed the visits to all the different poets apart from Morocco which we found very run down. Cabins were well proportioned and our steward was immense with nothing being too much trouble. Passengers on board were mixed from Americans Australians. New Zealand. Japanese etc. Most enjoyable port was Madeira. Beautiful island especially the views from the chair lift. Great experience. People very friendly. The ship was one of the oldest but did not look like it as it was well looked after. We ate in the windows restaurant most nights and the food was excellent. We met other guests who only ate in the buffet and they also enjoyed the different choices as well as the different food choices on offer. The last morning was very chaotic as all the restaurants were closed apart from the buffet with everyone wanting to get off the ship it made the restaurant so busy there were no seats. Eventually we gave up and decided to eat at the airport. The food in the pub is also very good with enough choice if you would like a change from the other restaurants
