Norwegian Spirit Cruise Review by susanstar88
- Sail Date: November 2017
- Destination: Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Penthouse with Large Balcony
We had a 4 night dining package which worked out nice for us... we enjoyed The Garden Room more than the huge Windows dining area (not as romantic). Carney's is always our favorite but we did enjoy the oriential restaurant a couple times. Our service was always wonderful and if you get a chance ... look for Raymond in Cagney's -- he's the BEST.
If you are looking for a large pool - this ship might not be right for you. However, in addition to the main pool & 4 hot tubs ... there is a children's pool with various activities. We easily found a couple of chairs & enjoyed time there - the poolside food was great, as was the service.
The entertainment was spectacular ... especially the magic show and Elements (which were both Las Vegas worthy). We enjoyed Bingo several times & walked away a couple of winners - an unexpected surprise & bonus.
All & all ... we had a great time meeting new friends, relaxing and enjoyed every moment to the fullest!

Bottomline, if you have the chance to book #10002 - grab that suite before anyone else does. Our cabin personnel - Jose & Ricardo - were some of the best we've ever experienced. And, our concierge, Karin, was absolutely wonderful ... making reservations, checking on us multiple times a day and escorting us off the ship when we returned to port. We hope to meet up with them and the Hotel Director, Armando, again.
Each of the ports showed us the magnificence of Spain, Morraco & Portugal. The history, sites and tours were wonderful. We would repeat this cruise (and on the Spirit).

AlicanteWe loved it here ... was very windy & chilly due to a rapid change in the weather but we just love seeing all the historic sites. We also visited a beautiful winery and that was super & very educational.View All 81 Alicante Cruise Port Reviews

Architecture TourBoth bus & walking tours were great ... the van was on the smaller side so it was a very manageable group for the guide.View All 14 Architecture Tour Reviews
Flamenco ShowWe were honored with front row seats. Everyone must see at least one show when in SpainView All 29 Flamenco Show Reviews
Gaudi Walking TourUnbelievable experience to see ... the Park was very busy but we really enjoyed the architecture. Again, glad I had researched prior.View All 48 Gaudi Walking Tour Reviews
La Sagrada FamiliaA must see. Our tour guide was fantastic - I'd recommend a guide rather than the self guided tour. We learned more than a recording could provide. I was glad I had reachered La Familia prior to tour.View All 112 La Sagrada Familia Reviews

Caves of NerjaCaves are lots & lots of walking but our guide was spectacular ... I'm a bit claustrophobic but DID NOT feel that way at allView All 9 Caves of Nerja Reviews
Canadas del TeideUnfortunately, it was too windy to operate the cable cars but we were refunded part of the tour cost from NCL. Our guide made several unscheduled stops because of the cable car not operating. This is why we always book port cruises with NCL directly.View All 25 Canadas del Teide Reviews
