It was a very interesting cruise for the visit to Israel. That visit was inspiring and impressive, being in Israel for two days was great. Arriving at the port for boarding from the peoples train it's a long way. I think Norwegian should offer a small bus that picks up people and takes them to the terminal, just as they do in the port of Rome for free. Otherwise the only criticism I have is the food, is the same in the two main restaurants, and the buffet almost never offered new varieties of food, they just changed the desserts. For that reason I do not give 5 stars to the cruise. Another thing that was not coordinated well were the shows. The best show, the one of the Moondogs who are the best in the world in tribute to the Beattles, was assigned the night the boat was in Haifa port, Israel, and most of the people who left the boat for an excursion lost it. Since the excursions lasted between 10 and 12 hours. Jimmy de la Cruz and Miros service at Champagne Charlies bar is the best in the world, superb bartenders, if you travel in Spirit go to that bar, you will not regret it. An unforgettable cruise where I made many new friends and visit amazing places such as: Holy Land in Israel, Kourion ruins in Cyprus, romantic Athens, historical Olympia, the special sound of the sea organ in Croatia and the romantic Venice of Always it's a cruise to remember for life.

Cabin Review

Large Oceanview Picture Window

Cabin O3

The cabin was quite spacious, always clean. But they have to go with the beds for couples. It was a little uncomfortable and felt bad where they joined both mattresses. The bathroom division, although small, is very good. Nothing bad for the price and the offer of the cabin included unlimited drinks.
