Boarded the Norwegian Spirit on Sunday in Barcelona. Everything's been really great, except the weather. The food surpassed many fancy restaurants (in both taste and prestige ), and I've developed a new respect for cruise ship dancers after the show they put on despite the rough atlantic waters last night.
There were a few problems between NCL and my agent regarding the booking, and I had to wait a while to embark. As a result, I got upgraded from an inside to an ocean view, and found a bottle of wine in my cabin next morning complements of the embarkation officer. Thought it was a really nice gesture.
The only qualm I have with NCL is 75c/min internet. If it costs them that much that they need to charge that much for it to be viable, they'd need to find some drasticly cheaper networking.
Having that said, I don't really have much to compare them to; on the only other ship I've ever been on (Costa Concordia), the Captain evidently decided that sailing the ship into Giglio Island a few hours after I boarded would be a good idea, so he went ahead and did that. Things are going much better this time around.
