Ship Facts: Norwegian Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Spirit Deck Plans
Venice to Barcelona June 2013

Tips: Bring deodorizing spray for bathroom (constant stench we did not notice with other cruises)

Expect to pay extra for the coffee bar because their coffee is terrible (also something we did notice on other lines)

Use Rick Steve's (including free audio tours apps) and Tom's cruise port info. ( to plan and see the sights.

Do the wine package deal, start with a lower # of bottles and you can upgrade later if need be.

Avoiding cruise excursions and doing things on your own or with outside companies saves money and you often see more. (Exception for us was Florence)

The service, food, and entertainment were very good.


Dancing lessons and the salsa band Latin Express which was better than any other cruise. White party was fun and different. Embarq/Disembarq process was easy and no hassle. No obnoxious number of announcements and we could not hear them in the cabin (which can be good or bad). Beds were better than most average priced hotels.

The Usual:

DJ at cruise clubs are always awful and many of the shows are pretty lame, especially the marionette act. No late night comedian for this cruise. Avoid the mediocre food at the buffet when possible.

Standard chocolate buffet.
