My husband and I are celebrating our 30th anniversary and are looking at Spirit in mid-December. We are taking our 4 adult kids also, so 3 cabins. We have never cruised with NCL and I am reading the reviews of Spirit and am a little concerned about the condition of the ship. But then I read that NCL has cancelled Spirits cruises in January for an extended dry dock so it looks like this is the last cruise for her for a while. Dates are December 15 to 22nd ... the itinerary looks fun.
What are your thoughts? I've read of instances of last cruises before dry dock where the work is started and it is a mess with carpets being taken up, etc.
Our other options was MSC Gloriosa, but it's just so big...and those reviews are even worse. We have cruised RCCL extensively, and Princess in Alaska.
This cruise is a once in a lifetime opportunity for us and we need to celebrate. We've been thru more than most (I'm a 5 time cancer survivor) and really want to do this right.
Thank you so much for any help.
