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

I am a great fan of NCL, well I should say I used to be then I found that they started to go downhill and tried RCI, Holland America, MSC and celebrity. I sailed back on NCL in September on Jade from Venice and had such an amazing time ... 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

The cruise was very "port intensive' which gave us the chance to experience many different venues. The ports were mainly cities that are well known for their treasures, culture, and food. The sea days were relaxing and gave us time ... Read more

The NCL staff are great and it is hard work dealing with people who have drinks packages and a sense of entitlement. If you see the photos of the management, there are very few women. I like to spend my money with organisations that ... Read more

We chose this cruise due to the itinerary. We did all of our port stops on our own. Our favorite ports were Kotor, Dubrovnik, Athens, Toulon, and Rome. The market in Toulon was a great shopping experience. All of the NCL staff were ... Read more

We sailed on 3 other NCL ships peviously - mostly Jewel class, & once on the Epic. Firstly, I'm amazed how some previous reviews mention the Spirit is old... It is, or should be irrelevant to each review of the Spirit-the fact it is ... Read more

My overall feeling upon disembarking is that I would love to take another cruise specifically on the Spirit! Embarkation was quick and easy. We brought 6 bottles of very inexpensive Spanish wine on board, payed the cork fee, and got ... Read more
