I just got back from Norwegian Spirit, and the food was above average.... fresh and well prepared. The "cooking light" entrees were outstanding. Appetizers also very good, as were many soups. I did not find the quality to be uneven, and in fact found the buffet far better than most buffets, many fresh options, and small quanitities of hot food being brought out regularly, for constant higher quality at the buffet. All light meals at "Blue Lagoon" cooked to order.........fried rice and fried noodles both very tasty... small quanitities replenished frequently in the "Bier Garten" - this was more the hamburger/hotdog place, but also had sauerkraut and pork or chicken most days. I hear it varies ship to ship, but I thought the Spirit was very acceptable.
