I was just on the 12-day Grand Mediterranean from May 7-19 aboard the Norwegian Spirit. It was a DREAM VACATION. While the ship was relatively older and I did complain about having to pay almost double for my stateroom and port fees... the ... Read more

Ship is a bit old but it's serviceable. Service staff is very friendly. Food ranges from "Just OK" to "Good", but skip the Sushi restaurant as they are all their own unique "rolls" and not very good. ... Read more

The ship is showing her age and the furniture in the cabin including the carpet looked very tired, nothing like the picture on the web site sadly. The bed was very comfortable and a good size. The cabin steward was excellent, the shower ... Read more

Embarcation was a breeze as we had elected to arrive close to the time we could board and were able to leave our carry on bags in our cabin, which was already prepared. Spirit is a relatively small and older ship so if you are looking ... Read more

Fine transatlantic cruise with a few blips along the way. Spirit is an older smaller ship which suits me fine and has many features fast disappearing on larger newer ships such as a wide teak wraparound promenade deck and a forward ... Read more

This NCL Spirit Cruise was chosen as our first cruise. We wanted to get from Guadalajara Mexico to Paris France without any prolonged flights. Based upon cost, convenience and enjoyment, a cruise seemed to be the best way to get to ... Read more

Just returned home from a wonderful 14 day cruise on board Norwegian Spirit, from the Captain to the attendants the level of service was above what we expected, all food is off the highest quality available at any time. This was our ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. We were so very pleasantly surprised at the fantastic experience based on the on the online reviews we read. Yes, the ship is older, but we loved the ship itself, the bathroom; it was pretty big ... Read more

Took advantage of UBP & shore excursion credit on the only cruise to fit our time from from Port Canaveral. Also had Cruise credit from previous cruise. Like this size ship and wanted Western itinerary. The Spirit is in fine shape ... Read more

We recently completed a seven night Caribbean cruise on the NCL Spirit. It was a wonderful trip! Leading up to the trip, we read negative reviews about the Spirit, but honestly our experience did not resemble the previous reviews. We have ... Read more

Having just returned from a cruise on Norwegian Spirit, I have to say what a very pleasant surprise I had. I had read many reviews that had made me doubt my choice, mostly about the age and condition of the ship. I am happy to say, that ... Read more

This was our third cruise, and this review is aimed mainly at the ship itself. Our last cruise was The Panama Canal in September 2014 aboard the Norwegian Jewel, having previously cruised from Bangkok to Beijing on board the Diamond ... Read more

I had been on the Norwegian Spirit in May of 2015 in Europe for 15 days and liked the ship. Norwegian also offered an interior room without a single supplement on this cruise and since I traveled solo for the first time, this was an ... Read more

First things first. As you may have heard before - a cruise is what you make it - I believe that anyone can get on any ship and with the right attitude can have a good time. I just got off of the Norwegian Spirit and, because I went in ... Read more

Having been on over 20 cruises with a competing cruise line, I was skeptical about venturing out on an older smaller ship as the Spirit. My first impression of the ship was that even in its old age, the ship is magnificent. Our room was ... Read more

Where do i start? What a great cruise. Some of the criticisms I have read are totally unjustified. Yes it is an older ship, but tired definitely not. We arrived on a warm spring day and parked at the car park by the terminal. Very ... Read more

I booked this cruise on the spur of the moment because it was really cheap, but it didn't have any perks. When I book with Norwegian again I will make sure I have the beverage package because to purchase it or just buy the drinks is very ... Read more
