First Time On Ncl Spirit

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

We've just booked to go on NCL Spirit for the first time in February...sailing roundtrip from Barcelona fr 9 nights. Has anyone got any tips or advice?

is it worth buying a drinks package before we go or can we do this onboard?

 

thanks x

Hi,

 

We just went on this ship for 9 nights from Barcelona in January.  Had a fab time.  The ship was going into dry dock to be smartened up and then resuming the Canaries/Morocco itinerary in February.  As to the drinks package, I suppose it depends how much you drink!  We did the wine package as we prefer mostly wines with our meals and we thought that well worth it, but the drinks package was expensive in our opinion and we certainly would not have had value for money from it. plus all passengers in the cabin have to do it.  On our cruise we had a very rough crossing from Casablanca to Funchal and my husband did not want to drink anything that day so it would have been a complete waste.  

 

We enjoyed the speciality restaurants especially The Bistro (French).  We also tried the Shogun, the Italian and the Steakhouse.  We pre booked them before going on the website and got a small discount and because we used one of them on the first night, a free bottle of wine.

 

Hope you got this in time, and enjoy your cruise, I'm sure you will.  We would certainly go back on the Spirit again!

thank you!

 

we went on the spirit on the 11 feb for 9 nights it was the first sailing after the dry dock. Unfortunately they hadn’t finished everything so a lot of work was being done on the ship whilst we were on.

 

We had bad weather and had the itinerary swapped round as the captain tried to avoid the storms. 10 ft. waves and 70 mph winds!! We were in an outside cabin on deck 5 and the waves were hitting our window!

 

Those points aside we had a fabulous time!! we ate in Cagneys twice and Le Bistro and Teppanyaki and they were amazing. If I was to go back on the ship I would definitely get the ultimate dining package to be able to eat in the select dining every night!

 

We did the soft drinks package for us both and felt we saved by doing this.

 

For all the smokers out there. . . . you can smoke inside in the casino!! Not great for non-smokers though as you have to walk through the casino to get to one of the bars.

 

Yes there are hairdryers in the room but they are the ones in the bathroom. Ok if you have short hair but definitely take one if not!!

 

We didn’t have bathrobes in the cabin. Felt the cabins were very spacious and well laid out particularly the bathroom!

 

Overall fab and we will definitely go again!

:)
