This cruise was supposed to visit Athens and Rhodes before going through the Suez Canal. Due to the refurbishment of the ship in Marseilles running over time, NCL cancelled the Mediterranean part of the cruise, and offered those who had booked a full refund if they wanted to cancel, or a 25% refund plus a 25% off voucher for a future cruise if they decided to go ahead with the trip. We did the ...

This was to be the cruise of a lifetime but now it will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Even before we embarked, the itinerary had been changed. It was only when I contacted a tour company in Madagascar that I found out that Madagascar had been taken off the itinerary. No communication from NCL, though they were quick enough to send communications about booking tours! Little did ...

We booked a cruise from Dubai to Cape Town on the Norwegian Spirit because it had an interesting itinerary but, after just 3 stops, we ended up with 16 consecutive days at sea. During embarkation we were disappointed to learn that the stop at Nosy Be, Madagascar, had been cancelled but an alternative call at La Digue, Seychelles was scheduled. A few days later, stops at the Seychelles, ...

Big mistake. We weren't told at the time of booking that the ship was being refurbished but thought at least things will be updated. Nice. Well the toilets didn't work on the first day and few, if any, restrooms in the public areas were available. The toilets worked intermittently for the first few days. Our cabin's heating/air conditioning worked intermittently as well. We stayed ...

I've given it some serious thought and a few weeks to cool down, but I still feel this way two weeks after disembarking, so here we go: Excursions: Most of our very expensive excursions were completely ruined by older people who were clearly mobility challenged and should not have been allowed on the buses for the activity levels described. Our Athens excursion did not include 1/3 of the ...

Can you imagine- 14 day cruise with 12 port days and Norwegian in all their wisdom decides that instead of doing noisy repairs, and I mean noisy repairs- hammering on pipes, drilling, (we could hear worker putting tools in his bucket he was so close under our bathroom vent). Instead of doing these repairs during one of the 12 port days when the ship is empty, they decided that they would start at ...

We were not impressed with this old tired ship. Furniture is not only dated but worn out. It has plumbing issues so bad that with three hours notice we were told that drilling and plumbing repairs would be happening from 11pm-5am!! Sorry for any inconvenience! That’s about the attitude of the Ship throughout the trip. We had to be diverted from Venice because of flooding which was not ...

Ports we wanted to visit Service from most was acceptable but not from tours desk where we had a female total ignore us and then was not much help after that. Then to be ripped off for 111min on internet when it was clearly documented no use.... and to be told tuff luck. And to rub salt in you have to PAY for bottled water US$24.00 for 6x 1lt bottles where manufacturing costs are ...

With the exception of 3 people, it was as if this was a training cruise. Most stood around, and several times we had to go searching for people to help. The tendering process was painful! We stood in the wind and rain for 1.5 hours waiting to get back to the ship. Get this! The tenders broke down! Good thing the ship wasn't in trouble. The excursions were disappointing. We paid good money to ...
