Norwegian Spirit Cruise Review by imacglasgow

  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Balcony

I always believe you make what you want of any cruise ship, and we enjoyed our ten days.


Relaxed ship. Easy walk off with your luggage when disembarking if you want. Good choice of eating venues. Most entertainment in the large theatre was of a high standard. Drinks package is well managed and allows two drinks on one card. Comfy beds. Mostly friendly staff. Casino discreetly located. Lots of eating out space on rear decks.


Passenger direction could be better, and shuttle bus info made more available. (Charged for some - eg Casablanca where walk off is long and ill advised - yet 15 euros for shuttle, then 2 euros for a useless photocopied map of the town.) Some staff are glum, and please drop the `happy happy, washy washy` stuff. Daytime activities often poor. Had to queue 1 hour to board through security and check in. Every drink gets 20% tip added, and then in Spanish ports there is 10% VAT added too! Limited quiet drinking/coffee space, and (sometimes mediocre) musicians can be intrusive.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BB 9098

Size matters - room slighlty smaller than we have been used to on ships, and the toilets are cramped due to the sliding partitions to wc and shower.

Balcony adequate. Beds very comfortable. Air-con quiet and effective.

No bedside cabinet on one side of bed due to put-u-up size. Limited storage - I lived out my suitcase.

Fold up one of the useless pieces of paper they leave in the room (art auction usually) and jam the wardrobe sliding door closed or you will get rudely awoken if there is any swell - which the ship does not disguise too well.
