NCL Spirit is a lovely smaller ship with a beautiful Asian theme. We chose this ship for the Mediterranean Itinerary and for the price. We loved the NCL casual cruising! The food was good everywhere. We were not expecting 1/2 the menu in ... Read more

We started this cruise from Barcelona, but should have arrived there a day or two earlier as we did not have time to see Barcelona before boarding the ship. The process of embarkation and disembarkation was extremely smooth and very ... Read more

We chose the NCL Spirit Mediterranean cruise mainly because of the itinerary. The ports were fantastic except Toulon which is a throw-away stop. Unfortunately, we had to use tenders in both Kotor and Mykonos which makes the process to get ... Read more

We chose Norwegian because we had sailed with them before and we liked the destinations. Overall, we enjoyed the cruise. It was what we expected, nothing over the top but still enjoyable. Since the Norwegian Spirit was one of the smaller ... Read more

I loved my cruise! The service in the dining rooms were fantastic and my room steward, Jeffrey was wonderful. The food was ok, but not fantastic, only in the specialty restaurants. The entertainment was not great but then I don't really ... Read more

Main reason we choose Spirit is due to the ports! And the timing as well. We were not flexible with time and the Spirit timing fits perfectly. This is our first cruise so we can't compare ncl with other cruises. Special shout out to ... Read more

On the positive side the itinerary,condition of the ship, food and wait staff were all excellent. However, there were a few thing that keeps me from giving an overall Excellent rating. First, the use of the lifeboats for tendering in ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the fact that NCL is pitching to us the SOLO cruisers. Got a pretty good deal. They had a Solo get together daily except Sea Days. They had to move the meeting place, because there were ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the destinations we visited. Tip- It is better to do the excursions on your own as the prices for the excursions from NCL can only be described as extortionate. It is quite easy to come off the ship and ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the itinerary. Croatia, Montenegro, Athens, Mykonos, Florence, Naples, Rome, Tulon and Barcelona. Its one of the smaller boats. They spray your hands with sanitizer in every dining entry. Sounds annoying but ... Read more

This cruise had many of the ports we wanted to see. Embarkation and Disembarkation were efficient and easy done. Although The Spirit is in need of upgrading could not fault staff service or cleanliness of ship. Meal selection in all ... Read more

This cruise had many ports that I have wanted to visit and the price was right. The ship is old and in need of an update (which I hear will be in dry dock in the future). Since it is one of the smaller ships it is easy to navigate. Was ... Read more

Overall, we had a great time on this cruise (our first, ever!) There were a few annoyances, however - charging $5.50 US for a litre of water is over the top ridiculous, and you're not allowed to bring it back if you don't finish it! If ... Read more

We chose ncl because of the ports of call and length of stay at each port. We had travelled to the Caribbean previously with holland America and had a wonderful time but this cruise was disappointing. Not enough staff to service the boat; ... Read more

We choose this cruise for its destinations and the ease of getting to Venice and back from Barcelona. The ship is relatively small by today's standards and as it was 12 days we hoped to avoid the overcrowding we have experienced on other ... Read more

This cruise was for our honeymoon (age 29 and 32). It was our first cruise and far exceeded our expectations. Having read lots of reviews where people talked about the 'dated' ship, we expected it to be pretty bad. However, I really don't ... Read more

I chose this particular cruise because of the Itinerary which would give us a taste of Europe without the transport hassles. From my research I knew the ship was dated but it was the ports that attracted me. My cabin was dated but clean ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary (which was fabulous - 11 ports in 14 days, the best way to sample a little bit of Europe in a small amount of time). That being said, the ship is dated (but scheduled for refurbishment) and the ... Read more

Itinerary was great! However, very strenuous and intensive. NCL nickel and dimes guests by charging $15. for shuttle when there is no alternative to get into town. No more lobster night---now charge of $24.95 in main dining rooms. Charge ... Read more

Picked up this cruise as a fantastic late bargain and were thoroughly pleased with our choice. Our first cruise was taken on the Spirit 10 years ago, so it had a little significance for us. That said the experience of those ten years did ... Read more
