Default SPIRIT BOOKED 1-25-09 - COMMENTS?

I just booked NCL Spirit sailing from New Orleans. I'd like to hear from anyone that has sailed on her - how did you like the ship?? I haven't sailed NCL in almost 10 years - so curious!!

Thanks in advance!

I enjoyed her immensely the first time, and we will be returning at the end of March to try her out again for 14 days. I think you've chosen a good time to cruise, because she will have returned from drydock by then and be refurbed. i am sure you'll have a great time

They are planning to fix the long standing engine problem I believe and implement the Freestyle 2.0 stuff and probably do some all around sprucing up.

the freestyle 2.0 will be great when they get it up to speed. we have a penthouse 10012 and my mother-in-law has the handicapped cabin 11629. any pictures you can get would be appreciated.

Thanks for all the comments - I was a little worried because she is a bit on the old side - I like the newer ships. But the free- style dining, New Orleans Port and the ports are what swayed me to book. Plus I got a nice price - $800pp for a balcony....wooohooooo. Now let the countdown begin!!!!
