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

Chose this cruise mainly because of itinerary, price and timing. Had been in Med before & toured Rome, Athens, Sorento & Pompeii - but this time took professional tour of Rome so saw more sites. Went to some countries we probably ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise on NCL and chose this particular itinerary as it covered both Athens and Rome. Many other cruise ships offer one or the other. We also had Venice on our must visit list. We arrived in Venice the day prior to ... Read more

The Spirit is an older ship but she still sails a true course. It's smaller than the enormities that have come out to sea recently, but I do think that her smaller size is actually a plus. The cruise is long and there are few toddler's on ... Read more

All the countries and cities visited were very nice. Food was good except terrible choices of bread. The Spirit is a nice ship that needs a bit of care - which it will have later this year. Air con cannot be turned off in the cabin ... Read more

We have cruised several times before but we learnt a big lesson on this partcular cruise. DO NOT BOOK A CABIN THAT IS UNDER A KITCHEN AREA. Especially 6065 on the Norwegian Spirit. I am sure that this ship is no different to others, so in ... Read more

I booked this cruise for the itinerary. I took the 12 night Mediterranean cruise from Barcelona to Venice. You are hardly on the ship for this cruise. The ship is older and more intimate. However, there are a variety of bars to keep you ... Read more

This was our first cruise and we chose NCL for the freestyle dining and the good recommendations from other cruisers. Cruise critic was an invaluable source of information and the roll call for our cruise enabled me to communicate with ... Read more

A Mediterranean cruise has been on my bucket list for a very long time. We finally decided to do it this year, for my friend's 50th birthday. We chose this cruise because (a) we had done NCL twice before and really liked it, and (b) the ... Read more

We (family of five, kids 10, 14, 16) are not experienced cruisers, and picked this cruise only because of the itinerary, having few expectations for the ship itself. The itinerary was indeed the star of the show, but the cruise staff and ... Read more

We had travelled on the Pride of America and had thought it was wonderful so thought another Norwegian Ship would be of the same standard. Oh so not true, the Sprirt is the most tired Ship decor so outdated and shabby due for an upgrade in ... Read more

We chose a cruise because we were sailing with our two kids (ages 8 and 11) and my mother and wanted something that would be fairly easy to manage with our motley crew and since we were taking the kids to Europe for the first time, we ... Read more
