Ship review: Room very comfortable (just the 2 of us) and had a balcony-a must. Service always good. Easy access to food at all hours-sometimes hectic in the cafeteria buffet, but fast, and if I don't have to cook it, I can be chill and ... Read more

We chose this ship because it is a newer, larger ship, and we enjoy the free style dining experience. We enjoyed the Taste main dining room, O'Sheehan's was also great, The Teppanyaki and Ocean Blue specialty restaurants were excellent. ... Read more

I was just on the 12-day Grand Mediterranean from May 7-19 aboard the Norwegian Spirit. It was a DREAM VACATION. While the ship was relatively older and I did complain about having to pay almost double for my stateroom and port fees... the ... Read more

Before you go: Make your dinner and show reservations as early as possible, up to ninety days in advance. We had gotten the “free” specialty restaurant package; when I tried to make dinner reservations for 5:30 there were none ... Read more
