We have been on this ship three times and again we were not disappointed. Granted it is in need of refurbishment but this didn't stop our enjoyment. We sailed from Barcelona where we have been many times and know the city well. Embarkation ... Read more

Great itinerary was our main reason for choosing NCL Spirit this spring and since it has been quite a long time since our last cruise we bought a suite to make the cruise even better. The positive sides are the fact that everything ... Read more

We chose to cruise back to back (first Canary Island then W. Mediterranean) on the NCL Spirit because of the great itineraries and the reasonable base cruise fares. When we booked, all additional charges (i.e. port fees and taxes, ... Read more

My fiance and I chose this cruise because we are recently engaged and found an incredible deal with Norwegian- we decided that this would essentially be our honeymoon, as we are starting our own business and wouldn't have the time or the ... Read more

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

This is my third time taking the cruise and the first time with NCL. I chose this cruise because of great price, casual dining - ie no formal dressing nights, and wanted to check out the Canary Islands in Spain in a more budget friendly ... Read more

This was our first time with Norwegian. We picked the cruise (21 Jan, Canaries) because it was a good price anyway, but with the bonus of the Ultimate Drinks Package thrown in more or less free (not that either of us drink that much, but ... 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 booked this at shorter notice than normal due to health issues but the price was right and although we've been to the Canaries several times before we've not visited mainland Spain or Casablanca.So a nice cruise and some winter sun were ... Read more

This was our first time cruising with NCL. We saw this cruise advertised and though it would be nice to get away from the UK for some winter sun. The package we chose included ultimate drinks package and four dine around options. The ... Read more

we chose this cruise based on the price and itinerary as we do not like a lot of sea days and this cruise was very port intensive. What really made this cruise special though was the people we met on cruise critic before the cruise and ... Read more

We did an overnight stay in Barcelona before embarkation. Really great place but need more time there. Embarkation was really easy. Really well organised, much easier than boarding a plane. We dropped our luggage outside to waiting staff, ... 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
