Norwegian Spirit Cruise Review by JADGMD March15

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2015
  • Destination: Europe

This was our first cruise experience. Generally we enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and courteous and our Cabin Steward looked after us very well. For the most part we avoided Raffles - which was chaotic and noisy. The Windows restaurant was excellent and we also enjoyed the specialty restaurants. Shore excursion organisation was also very good.

We had a Balcony Stateroom which we felt was clean but with tired decor and furnishings. It was also smaller than we expected.

We joined the cruise at Malaga, which was not the main embarkation point - it took four hours for one of our suitcases to get to our cabin

The Library on board was too small for the the numbers seeking to use it and there was a distinct lack of quiet lounges where you could go to read or just talk.

There was an obsession with loud music in the common areas which was intrusive and to a degree spoiled the overall ambiance and experience for us. Music from the Galaxy lounge also intruded into the library!

Although we enjoyed aspects of the cruise, there was an over concentration on loud activities at the expense of those who might prefer a quieter experience.
