To be fair, we own a business and are totally driven by dates that WE are available to take a trip. Had this cruise not fit in with our schedule, we probably wouldn't have gone with it. Having said that, (1). NCL need to dry dock ... Read more

Very easy and efficient embarkation process. On board the ship within 30 minutes. We took this cruise because of our interest in its port of call Ship looks a little dated but clean. The quality of food was just OK but lacked variety ( ... Read more

We chose to sail with NCL after doing some research and wanting a cruise line that was not going to be a formal affair and we certainly got that with NCL. You could essentially wear what you liked, which made for a lovely informal ... Read more

Yes, its an older ship. If you look in corners you'll see it. It doesn't have the climbing wall or waverider surfing or big slides. The big picture though is better. We chose this ship/cruise for the ports, and the price. We ... Read more

Having cruised in the Med aboard Spirit a year ago we were sure we were on to a winner. We were on two back to back cruises departing June 8 and 18, but as far as we were concerned it was all one long cruise, sure to serve up a great deal ... Read more

The itinerary was incredible. The only port I could have skipped was Sardinia. Would do the same cruise again to see more of all other ports. The Spirit is the perfect size ship for this jam packed itinerary. We didn't even have time ... Read more

This was our first time on a cruise and the only reason we eventually decided to book was because of the port visits. The embarkation was seamless and the staff all incredibly friendly and helpful. We were in our room only an hour ... Read more

I picked this cruise for the price point and the stops. I also planned to do a two day tour of Rome after the cruise. The reviews I read on cruise critic before my cruise were mostly spot on. The ship is older and small and not a lot to do ... Read more

We chose this because of the nine ports, and all of them were interesting... a perfect way to get to see such islands as Malta and Rhodes... places we would otherwise never get to see. Sadly Valetta was crowded and streets were closed ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our friends are big NCL fans. Even they were disappointed. We liked the itinerary, with the exception of the port at Messina, Sicily. This port city is run down and we could not find a way to get to other, more ... Read more

We had originally selected this cruise because of the itinerary & great price. After reading reviews our expectations were set very low; however, we were pleasantly surprised! We loved the ship. The staff, Crew & service were ... Read more

This was my first cruise, although my partner has been on one cruise before, in the Caribbean. I really enjoyed my first cruise experience. Embarkation was fine once we had managed to get to the ship, having walked all the way from the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our honeymoon because of the itinerary and the price point. We were impressed with some aspects, but others left much to be desired. The room itself (10588) was in a great location, but there were constant ... Read more

Our 2nd cruise on the Spirit. We chose this ship again because it is smaller and more sophisticated than some of the larger ones that have water parks , and fairground rides. We are a couple in our 50s and we love the customer ... Read more

I've cruised on another Norwegian ship as I love Italy and the Mediterranean and this cruise took me to places I hadn't visited. The price was right too. We landed in Rome the day before and spent some time on the hop on hop off buses. ... Read more

We picked this cruise because we like NCL and we wanted to start and end in Rome. A stop in Marseilles was also important. NCL treated us well. We used none on the NCL sponsored shore excursions and booked all our own tours with others ... Read more

Itinerary was superb, weather was glorious and excursions booked through outside vendors were amazing. The NCL Spirit is a ship needing to go to drydock for serious updating. Cabins are small, balconies even smaller (knees hit glass as ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. It was fabulous! We were in a suite so embarkation and disembarkation was a breeze. The concierge, Monica, did a fabulous job in getting us everything, including dinner reservations when ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the time of year (our anniversary) and the location (Mediterranean with several ports of call that were new to us). Embarkation was disorganized, but that might just have been Barcelona rather than any ... Read more
