Ship Facts: Norwegian Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Spirit Deck Plans
12 days in the Sun

We were a group of 3 mature adults travelling from New Zealand. Our first 3 nights were spent in Barcelona a city that we all loved. We stayed close to La Ramblas and enjoyed the lively atmosphere and surrounds.

We booked a 3 hour tour with Barcelona Sidecars for an excellent overview of the city. With several stops where we were able to look around with our guide and take photos. The next day we boarded the Hop on Hop Off Bus to Parc Guell for the afternoon. This was a highlight and not to be missed. On embarkation day we arranged a 5hr tour to Montserrat with Barcelona Day Tours.This was excellent and provided a smooth transition with our luggage right to the ship and with time to unpack before the compulsory drill @ 4.30pm. With a short delay in departure we sailed off into the beautiful sunset bound for Toulon.

We hadn't booked a tour at this stop as we weren't sure how we'd feel after our 30hr journey to Barcelona and activities there. This was a sensible move as we all needed a lazy day with 3 busy days ahead. We had a leisurely breakfast then took a stroll off the ship into the town. We weren't impressed with the town, the buildings were very tired looking and the area generally unappealing and was our least favoured port stop.

We were blessed with the best weather one could have for this cruise and apart from a strike which prevented our stop in Athens this itinerary couldn't have been better. In fact we loved Dubrovnik and weren't unhappy at all about missing Athens.
