Ship Facts: Norwegian Spirit Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Spirit Deck Plans
Think twice about sailing the Atlantic in January!

Went early to enjoy the beauty of a vibrant Barcelona and sailed on the Spirit down the Mediterranean. It's an old ship but has a lot of friendly folks as staff and passengers. Our room was more spacious than the balcony room I recently had on the new Royal Princess. As Americans, we were in the minority but were befriended by so many, especially those from the UK. Favorite was Deck 7, the Promenade, where you could get a better workout than up on 13, the sports deck. Wonderful use of space. Entertainment was very good.

Downside on this ship was the food and the service, especially in Windows,the main dining room. Cold breakfast, cold dinner, etc. and the staff definitely needed more training, friendly as they were.This has to be addressed, immediately! (Ship is going to dry dock to be redone in Cadiz.)

We were rocking and rolling with the waves and the stabilizers, or lack of them, could not handle the weather in the Atlantic. People were quite ill until we reached quieter seas. Casablanca is a bust, unless you went to Rick's Cafe. Would have liked more of the Canary Is., Maderia is fabulous. Shore excursions are OK. Did some spots on our own.(Malaga is easy to walk many miles). Disembarked, easily and were at airport way too early. This itinerary would be better in warmer weather. Still glad we went though.
