Sail Date: Apr 2015
Cabin: Mid-Ship Balcony

The Norwegian Spirit is old and tired looking. However, the food, service and entertainment was excellent. In regards to the old and tired bit, out room was aft, had an obstructed view from the balcony. We did not sit out on the balcony, it was just dirty. Room lacked storage. Bathroom really dated. Wake up call function did not work, service in Lagoon bar was poor. My first time with Norwegian and not too sure of I will be doing one again in the near future. Disappointed with the weather, cooler this time of year. Funchal was awesome as was Malaga. Do not miss the toboggan ride in Madeira. Theater was oddly set up; you had to leave via the front and ignorant people would leave in the middle of a song and it was distracting. Also, the front row was reserved for disabled and clearly marked but those ignorant people again would sit in these seats and they were obviously not disabled. Pool was closed for two days for maintenance. They painted it at sea! Both embarkation and disembarkation were fantastically smooth. The entertainment staff was great, especially the guy from Mexico. The lead singer was not as good as he thinks! Comes off as arrogant. One night they had a Motown and Rat Pack show in the Champagne Bar and the dark haired guy was by the far the better singer. Do not miss the wine tasting. Best one I have ever done.

Port Reviews

Barcelona

Love Barcelona. Second time there. Lots to see and do. Great shopping. terrific food. Do the hop on hop off bus. Lots of hotels to choose from. .

Lanzarote

Just shopped around. Cool day with no sun. Did not do any excursions. Got free internet on shore. Bought some knock off purses which was fun. Shady character but lots of laughs.

Malaga

Pretty. Great sunny day. Did a horse and buggy tour. Interesting. Did some shopping. Stopped for an ice cream. Saw the castle. Easy shuttle for only 4 dollars. Got free internet at MacDonalds.
