Great Time But Excursion Problem

zip line in Costa Maya
zip line in Costa Maya
My best friend and I had a great time on the Spirit. Loved the zip line in Costa Maya, hanging out at a private beach on Roatan, and swimming with the Dolphins in Cozumel. Roatan was our favorite place. Our excursion to Ambergris Caye in Belize was a disaster, but it was the tour owner's fault and we got a full refund, but wasted a day and missed the excursion that was part of my bucket list. Took a slower tender boat to barrier reef (was covered and could not see); boat was too big to get into the area; snorkel gear was not up to par; only had 30 minutes in the town of San Pedro...instead of 2 hours. Bummer, but the rest of the trip made up for that problem. Guess we'll have to take the cruise again to visit Ambergris Caye (and hope for a better tour company).

1st cruise
This was our first cruise. We choose this cruise because of the itinerary. I was afraid of being sea sick, but had no problems with help of medications. The staff was very friendly, weather warm once we left the states. Food was good, not sure it was outstanding. I feel that the desserts could use some help. Took the advise of other cruisers, took along 2 liter bottles of soda to have, no problems with taken this on the ship. Also brought a larger cup for the ice.
In Costa Maya, I would recommend taking the bus for $3 each to the "downtown" area. We went to the Tropicante, they are the best! I spent the day lounging on the beach. Jorge was there for my every need. My husband went on a snorkling trip from the beach there for $15.00. Can't beat that! The rest of the trip we did the excursions booked thru the cruise line. They all where great!

Another Great Trip on the Spirit
This was our 3rd trip with NCL and 2nd on the Spirit. Last time we went to Alaska on our 1st cruise. Everything I remembered about having such a great time was all brought back. Great ship, great staff and some of them were with us on that trip to Alaska. Same great restaurants from Raffles to the speciality restaurants, the Italian being our favorite. Best Tiramusa in the world, wish they had a giant take home box! Sorry the 20 somethings couldnt find a party, we did and had the bar bill to prove it and we our in our 50's. There is always something to do and we just have a great time. It was our friends 25th wedding anniversary and 1st cruise, they had a blast. See the ruins, Tulum is awesome and the tour guides are very good. Try to make sure you get one of the boats that are covered if you go down the Belize River to see Altun Ha. We were fortunate to have one but others did not and got quite sunburned. Not sure they might of been on a different ship since there was 2 other cruiselines in town. Would definately cruise again and would like to go on the Spirit again, such good times!

Norweign Spirit!
We went on the norweign spirit last week. It was the most amazing time! It was my first time cruising and I am already looking for another cruise and I just got back today!
The spirit was such a good size, it was manageable and we just had so much fun.
The only thing that I would suggest is that norweign make some sort of alcohol package that we could buy instead of paying for every single drink.
I loved my cruise!!

This was my 8th cruise and the crew on this ship was by far the friendliest I have ever encountered.
The must do excursions on this cruise are snorkeling the barrier reef in Bellize and the dolphin encounter in Roatan if you are going on this cruise. The were amazing!!! After you are done snorkeling they take you to Bannister Island it is BEAUTIFUL. We saw a wild parrott in the trees and dolphins were swimming along our boat as we left the island.

My first exprience!!!
This was my husband and i first cruise the ship was nice and food was great but if your looking for a party up late nights this is not the one i would recommend. The casino workers and guys whom cleaned the room and sprayed your hands before going into the buffet were wonderful people. The gentlemen over the Windows restaurant was outstanding. I wanted to party late im from New Orleans and this was not the cruise for that lots of 60-70 year olds and retirees.

Roatan Honduras zip line prep
Roatan Honduras zip line prep
Really fun 9th & 10th cruise for my husband & myself. First wk w/family was busy & fun for everyone. The port in Honduras had great shopping variety & value, very clean- seems to be set up for cruisers. We walked right outside the port to sched our own zip line experience for beginner(s)$40 w/ship card, 11 zips-really safe& fun. Great snorkeling in Belize-just take the public water taxi to the Barrier Reef, Goff Cay & in Cozumel at Chankanaab Pk, reasonable public trans cost. The Spirit was clean,good price for balcony rm, good food variety at the buffets & main dining area. Salt water pool w/pool side shower & good band entertainment at the pool. The casino staff had great attitudes. We've been on some ships where the employees were unhappy but this was not the case on the Spirit. We were surprised by being "perked" as V.I.P.'s our 2nd wk which was fun-complimentary bottle wine, afternoon snacks to our rm, breakfast&lunch in the specialty restaurant, first-off tender tickets. Only sort-of downside, no public laundry on ship or fridge in rooms.

Loved my first cruise!
I went on this cruise with my boyfriend who had been on numerous cruises before. This being my first, I only had internet reviews to go off of. From the minute I got onboard I was overly impressed by the whole ship. He was also very impressed, comparing it to other cruises, he found this ship to look incredible. The food was, for the most part, great. I got lucky that the 24 hr place served my favorites: spinach dip, fish and chips, chicken tenders. We ate at teppenayaki one night and that was amazing!
I loved that every night after we came back from dinner there was a surprise in the room for us. There were chocolates, or towel animals waiting. One time they even had the animal dressed in my accessories which made it so cute!
The one area that I found the ship lacking was activities for those in their 20's. We participated in the pub crawl which was fun, but didn't find too many others during the week that caught our attention. We weren't that disappointed in this area since we were only on there to completely relax and spend most of our time laying out in the sun, but wouldn't recommend this cruise for anyone in that age range who really wants to always have something fun to participate in all the time.
The Second City shows were incredible and would insist that you make sure you make those. Just try to get there about 20 min early to ensure you get a seat.
I would do this again any chance I got!

our first cruise
Don't know why we waited so long, but now that we have experienced an NCI cruise I know it won't be the last. We were very pleased with all aspects of our cruise, service, the ambiance, the condition of the ship, the ports of call, and the casino. Next time I will plan on having some more help as the toughest part of the cruise was getting on board the ship.
We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and had dinner at Cagney's Steakhouse to mark the date. We mentioned this to our waitress and in just a few minutes we had a group of crew members singing to us, followed by their gift of a wonderful anniversary cake which we finished off on the last day of our cruise.
We will treasure our memories of this trip, an d recommend the NCI cruise to all of our friends.

Initial Theater Show
Go very early to the first show, it is an intoductory show and attended by all, but only one show is offered. We went fifteen minutes early and could not even find a place to stand to watch it. Go early, they need two shows that evening.
