We’re frequent cruisers (at least 2 cruises a year) and we decided to sail on the NCL Spirit (European itinerary from Civitavecchia, Italy. The ship was an older ship with Asian inspired decor. We normally sail on newer liners but they don’t tend to have this itinerary. However, our experience was fantastic! The staff was extremely friendly and the ship is fairly clean. The only downsize was that they would turn off the ac when docked and the rooms/hallways smelled like sewage at times. The entertainment was great with plenty to do. The “freestyle” experience is by far the best!! Freestyle on this liner literally means Freestyling! Dinning staff and crew were very attentive and extremely nice. We always had our glass of Chardonnay topped when seated. The food was also great tasking. My biggest advice would be to book a cabin with either a balcony or at least a window as we stayed inside and the cabin was pitch black. We never knew what time it was. Overall, this was a great experience and would most definitely sail NCL again!

Great itinerary!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside
Cabin IE
Power went out the first night and the ac was turned off when ship was docked which made the room and hallways smell a bit like sewage.
