Ship Facts: Norwegian Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Spirit Deck Plans
A Great Introduction
We had a very enjoyable trip aboard the NCL Spirit, boarding October 25, 2012 for a 12 night cruise. We considered this a great introduction to a part of the world we hadn't seen. Our friends had taken several trips in thes area and wanted to go back and revisit. So we were 2 novices and 2 experienced Mediterannean travelers. All had taken a number of cruise prior to this.

We enjoyed the NCL Spirit. It was well maintained and had a very accomodating crew. We were well taken care of. We enjoyed all the pay restaurants, particularly The Bistro. We ate there twice, Cagney's twice and also Teppanyaki and the Trattatoria. All were good and worth the surcharge. We also very much enjoyed the Windows Dining Room. We dined in Windows for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as our schedule allowed. We thought the lido was hectic and rarely ate there.

The entertainment was the best we've ever seen on a ship. It ranged from singers and acrobats to illusionists and full musical productions. We were very impressed.

Our stateroom was smaller than we were used to and was the only negative. I knew it would be small, but we were hardly there. This was a very port intensive trip.

We went on this cruise for the ports. I found lots of info on CC and really appreciate all the helpful tips.

Venice- We stayed 2 nights at the Hilton Molino Stuckey. It was a spectacular location overlooking the main shipping canal. It had a free private water shuttle to St. Marks Square.

We took the Alleguna water shuttle directly from the hotel dock to the port and were on board very easily. There was a shuttle that took anyone who needed a lift from the water shuttle.
