We just returned from the Western Med cruise out of Barcelona on the NCL Spirit. The ship is fine, the itinerary was great, and the service was as good as any of the cruise lines, but NCL will nickel and dime you so beware! From the time ... Read more

Simply cannot believe the cost of everything from $327 Internet Access for the cruise to $399 Ultimate Rome DAY trip EACH! $15 corkage if you have the audacity to open a bottle of your own wine. (Still far cheaper than buying on ship). ... Read more

Don't like negativity but after 34 cruises we have found bottom of the barrel. Ship is the oldest I think NCL operates and it is very tired but kept very, very clean. Odd design compered with other ships but this is perhaps down to age. ... Read more

We planned on visiting friends in Gran Canaria so to make the journey from the West coast of Canada worthwhile we thought a cruise would be nice. This is our first cruise with Norwegian and our fifth cruise on five different cruise lines. ... Read more

It was a very interesting cruise for the visit to Israel. That visit was inspiring and impressive, being in Israel for two days was great. Arriving at the port for boarding from the peoples train it's a long way. I think Norwegian should ... Read more

MY friend and I have previously sailed on Norwegian Star and thoroughly enjoyed it. Spirit was a different story. The vibration and noise in the cabin when in open waters at full speed was unbearable, particularly in Bedroom part of cabin. ... Read more

My husband and I took an NCL cruise during Christmas 2015. Because we had such a good time, we decided to do it again. After this latest experience, it is doubtful Christmas cruising will become a tradition. Embarking in Barcelona was a ... Read more

As we have been on the Mediterranean cruise 3 times previously and wanted to cruise the Mediterranean during the Christmas season, the only choice was NCL Spirit. We thought we would try this cruise as a prelude to a longer NCL cruise. ... Read more

I picked this cruise because of the dates and the ports. The dates didn't change but the ports did. A few months before we sailed I got a letter saying that because of a "berthing conflict" Naples was being replaced with Palermo ... Read more

Started off poorly as the weather in Venice did not cooperate and had to kill one port (Crete) but once we got started it was one interesting adventure after another. Overall great ports and the ship experience was very good. Pretty ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the fantastically low price, but I was soon to find out why the price was so low. The Mediterranean itinerary was very attractive and included Israel and Cyprus, two places I had never been. The cabin (9572) ... Read more
