Venice to Barcelona

Sail Date: September 2013
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Venice
Norwegian Spirit Venice to Barcelona

Amazing itinerary and ports.

Chosen for ports and smaller vessel.

Norwegian Spirit is older ship, smaller venues and decor.

Restaurants are good. Raffles, buffet offers same food each day. Can use some variety.

Pool deck is nice, but pool unusable as temperature is COLD.

Staff are Amazing. Officers walk around regularly to talk to guests.

Rooms can use upgrade. Outside room balcony glass need cleaning.

Bathrooms also old and need to be upgraded.

We were in cabin 11556, unfortunately right under gym. Do not book this room. Heard treadmill and weights every morning at 6:00 a.m.

Before you book confirm your dates in ports to see what is open and available. Our schedule put us in Athens and Florence on Monday. All museums are closed Mondays. Also I Rome on last Sunday of month when Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel are free and overcrowded so excursions don't More include visit. Norwegian did not advise us of this and their excursion info incorrectly advertised these stops.

Evening shows in Starlight not bad.

Parties in Galaxy Lounge overcrowded. Should move to pool area.

Windows in front of Galaxy Lounge are badly s fogged with film. Can't enjoy the view!

Good ship and itinerary but definitely lots of room for improvement! Less
