Fantastic vacation

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: Jul 05, 2014


Ship, smallest ever stateroom on tenth floor next to elevators, great staff, washy, washy to keep healthy always used and available, fantastic food, great organized shore excursions. I'd rather been taken to Santorini Island so close than to Mykonos though. Just pictures show nicer looking houses. All great places to be seen, very active to go on all possible shore excursions. We had great weather, warmer every day as we went on. To see Venice from the ship was our second experience there. Leaving from Barcelona in the evening gave us the opportunity to still see the city in the morning. We flew from Tampa to London, non stop with British Airways, spend a few days there which was fantastic and assured me luggage would have less chance to be lost. Unforgetfull experience.

Great itinerary!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: Jul 05, 2014


The itinerary sells this cruise! We saw such amazing places. The price is very reasonable as well. Probably because the ship is older. We had a balcony room and room was very small for a 12 day cruise. Food was OK but not great. if you wanted better food you had to pay extra and make reservations to the specialty restaurants. We also got a package 7 port tour through "Shore Excursions Group".We saved so much money compared to Norwegians tours. Other guests did the same so you were with some of the same people for all the tours. Made some great friends! Highly recommend doing this.

Great Itinerary

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


Our family of 11 (with 4 children 8=14) really enjoyed this cruise.  For a first trip to Europe for many of us, we saw a lot.  We did go early and spent 2 nights in Rome and 2 in Venice before the cruise.  I highly recommend doing this, especially with children.  There is no way we could have seen what we did in Rome (comfortably) in one day.  The younger ones loved the kids club and the 14 yr old LOVED the teen area and activities.  We seldom saw her when we were on the ship.  Several of my family have serious dietary challenges and NCL was extremely accomodating for them.  They didn't have to worry if there were unacceptable items in their food.  This was WONDERFUL!  I wasn't too impressed with the rest of the food, but it was OK.  A few items were really enjoyable both in the dining room and buffet.  I can't say enough about the staff.  Everyone I came in contact with was smiling, happy and HELPFUL.  I did have a small complaint about the balcony cabins with 3 people.  The fold out couch took up all the space from the wall to the desk.  It was impossible to get to the balcony or use the desk without climbing over the bed if it was open-and it was usually open when we were in the room (it was closed when they made up the room after we went out for the day and opened up again when we were at dinner).  Another foot or two to allow passage at all times would have been very nice.  For children and first time travelers to Europe, the ports were a nice selection.  Do your homework and you can find just as nice and less expensive ways to see the ports than on an NCL shore excursion.  An example is in Istanbul there is a 1.4TL tram from near the ship directly to the Blue Mosque, Sophia Haggia, and the Topkapi Museum.  It is only a short 10 minute walk from the Blue Mosque to THE BAZAAR.  There is also easy public transportation to Piza where you can spend as long as you want holding up the leaning tower.  I can't imagine using a tour on Mykonos.  The charming downtown area with its narrow winding streets, tiny churches at every turn, small restaurants and the windmills is just a short walk from the shuttle busses.  I enjoyed being on a smaller ship.  Getting on and off the ship in port was never crowded and seldom had any line.  There was usually room wherever I went, and the buffet, while often full of people, was easy to manage.  Best of all, this senior citizen didn't have to walk too far for anything on the ship.  While the entertainment wasn't top notch, it was still entertaining and the dancers had so much energy.  We enjoyed our cruise!

Summer 2014 Mediterranean Cruise - Norwegian Spirit

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


Really great cruise, great ports of call... I would recommend coming to Europe a few days early for your cruise and staying a few days after. We started in Rome (4 nights), train to Venice (3 nights), then boarded the ship... ended up in Barcelona, disembarced, stayed in Barcelona for 4 days, then home. A cruise gives you a great overview of the places that you want to see... you really have to be portside for a few days if you want to experience your destinations. That being said, the cruise was GREAT and I would recommend it - and this ship - to everyone.

By far our joy on this cruise was the crew... Irish, Jha Jha, Nathan, our steward Sandy... these people were a great joy for us, made our day every time we spent any time with them. These people are soooo upbeat, so pleased to make you happy... really, truly, these crew members made our journey! EVERYONE on the crew, to the person, was fantastic, accommodating, cheerful... we couldn't ask for more! For that reason alone - that, and the great ports of call - we look forward to returning to Norwegian Cruise Lines for future voyages.

Great ports!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


For the most part this cruise was great. Felt the tours were over priced and I was told one this and the tour was totally not. At the Vatican we were guided to a shop not the vatican shop and they asked for your tour bus number. I know this was for a kick back. We were told we would see trivoli fountain and Spanish steps and didn't even go near them. As a small private tour you would think they would deliver what they said for $349 PP. Went with the dinig plan and that served us well. I have taken the exact cruise with them before and enjoyed having the dining plan never had to wait once. I have also cruised on Princess and Carnivale in the Mediteranean and enjoyed them all with Princess being my favorite.

Incredible Journey to the Eternal Cities of the Mediterranean

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: Jun 23, 2014


This is a fantastic cruise.  Not only do you see the greatest cities of the ancient world, walk where Aristotle and Caesar walked...you can see, taste, touch, and smell the places they lived.  The ship is awesome in its own right.  Not so big and so many people that every day off the gangway seems like a cattle call, yet big enough to offer something special and to the liking of everyone aboard this small town afloat.  The crew is courteous and spirited and they aim to please...to make your journey relaxed and compfortable.  You will work harder on this vacation than you are accustomed to at home unless you are a gym rat.  There is so much to see you will not want to miss anything, so get out the walking shoes and do a couple of miles a day in preparation for this journey through time. The food on the ship is outstanding and the variety incredible...you will gain weight even with all the walking.

I have done 6 Med cruises, and for itenerary, amenities,ships cleanliness, ship size, time in port, and staff friendliness...this trip is the best by a significant margin! You get to see St Mark's Square and the canals of Venice and even take a water taxi or a Gondola ride.  You get to stand atop the Acropolis and see the Parthenon and the Temple of Nike. Walk where Paul the apostle preached and Aristotle taught philosophy to Plato. See the last reputed residence and home of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ.  Walk the Marble streets of Ephesus and touch the facade of the ancient library of Ephesus. Stroll the exact same street on which Cleopatra and Marc Antony walked in procession into the great port of Ephesus and stand in the Ampitheatre where Paul was arrested for preaching the gospel. It is reputed that he penned his first letter to the Corinthians while imprisoned in Ephesus.

Your boat will take you on a passage through the Dardenell straits and the Gallipoli battlefield where the allies fought Turkish forces at the end of World War I, a struggle bourne out in a movie of the 80's bearing the name of that strategic penninsula of land.  See the city of Istanbul and the Blue Mosque and Haggia Sophia.  Take a boat ride up the Golden Horn or up the Bosphorus to the gateway to the Black Sea.  See the Grande Bazzar and the Egyptian Spice Market.  The tastes and smells are amazing alone.  Istanbul is an experience in and of itself and yet just another of the incredible and vibrant cities you will see on the cruise.

You will see Naples and if you want the Isle of Capri, or Pompeii and Herculaneum.  If that is not enough adventure, take an afternoon ride along the Amalfi coast, lunch in Sorento and take a quick swim in the sea to cool off after your trek through the ancient city in the wee hours of the morning. Oh, did I forget to tell you how beautiful it was to cruise through the Greek Isles and the straits of Messina on the way to Naples?  My heavens, the view of Mount Aetna and the trip past the island of Sicily and the tip of the boot of the Italian mainland...beauty on both sides. And by the way, just out of the Straits you cruise just pass the Island of Stromboli and its active volcano.  It will sometimes provide a fireworks experience rivaled only by a 4th of July spectacular.The rear deck of the ship behind Raffles provides excellent viewing.

Your day in Rome will be what you make it.  The Vatican and the Sistene Chapel, and the Pantheon, it simply is not to be missed.   I wept when I saw it the first time.  Not an overly dramatic person, but to see such beauty and brillance over 2000 years old and still an active catholic church...the open roof, the frescos, the tomb of Raphael....Did I mention the Colliseum, the house of Ceasar, the old ruins of Rome, the Circus Maximus, The Cathedral of St. John and the Escalara de los Santos( the steps Christ allegedly ascended on his climb up Calvary to the cross on the day of his crucifiction).  Rome is truely " The Eternal City ".

Florence, the home of the Rennasiance.  See Tuscany and Pisa's leaning tower.... that is much more amazing in person than could ever be revealed in a photograph. See Florence and the Duomo and its dome that architects can only speculate still as to how it was made and created.  See the Palaca Vecchia the home of the Medicci family and frequented by Machivelli, Davinci and Michaelangelo. Go see the jewelry on the Punta Vecchia Bridge.

See the sites and taste the wine of Provence in Toulon, or do a day at the beach. Then there is Barcelona. The Sagrada Familia Cathedral by Gaudi, the Picasso Museum, Salvadore Dali, La Rambla.  The nite life begins at midnight and concludes with breakfast.  The Art and vibrance of the city are palpable.

This is the cruise of a lifetimes worth of travel adventure in one cruise sailing.  You will not replicate this itenerary, this luxury travel, this level of entertainment, and this much exposure to the culture of the Med anywhere for three times the price.  This is a travel value!  I am going back and see it all again next summer.  Hope that I see you there, I will be the crazy American with a camera in one hand, a map in the other and a check list of places to see and things to do today.

Very good cruise experience

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: Jun 11, 2014


Very nice service, the service team is friendly, approachable and very professional. Entertainment is OK, the entertainment team is small but very professional, hope to have more varieties of programs available. Children entertainment is not enough, barely any activities specific for pre-teen and teenagers, only kids playing facility is the water park, which is too small and "babish".

Terrible

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: Jun 11, 2014


Norwegian refused to assist us in obtaining a taxi to the airport when we were in Venice. They stated that we must call a taxi company ourselves from our room for $5.00 per minute, even though we did not speak italian or know any numbers for taxi companies. Norwegian did not even provide any numbers for taxi companies. My husband and I were on our own at 3:30am in a port in a foreign country. Our flight was at 6:30am and Norwegian did not want to let us off of the boat until 4:30am. It takes 40 minutes to get from the boat to the airport and we had an international flight. The excursions consisted of large groups with a lot of mandatory sales pitches from vendors. In Istanbul, we were placed in a room and forced to watch a carpet presentation. They did not even give us a choice to decline it. We only received 25 minutes in Pisa and it took us 30 minutes to walk from the bus to the location. By the way, it takes at least 30 minutes to climb up and come down the Leaning Tower of Pisa if you are in shape. I would never cruise with Norwegian again. Beware. In my opinion, they only want your money and once they have that, they are done with you.

Itinerary was great

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Spirit | Sail Date: May 30, 2014


Being able to visit five countries and ten ports in 12 days was remarkable.  The food was good but menus were very similar.  Staff was polite and service was good.  Our stateroom was disappointingly small for a balcony room.  Our cabin location was fine but part of the reason I picked the cruise was because of the water feature in the back of the ship which I found out was only for children 12 and under.  Most of the entertainment were things that did not interest us and did not seem suitable for family participation.  Embarking and disembarking were the ships weakest points.  The itinerary said Venice in the first two days but we realized the second was actually at sea.  We had to miss one of our excursions and barely made it to the other one.  Directions to get the water taxi were very unclear.  We almost missed it and our excursion.  At Mykonos we waited in line following what the signs said which were unclear they didn't specify where to go and when we got to the end of the line the guy said we were in the wrong line.  We had too go to the front desk because we had a limited time to get to our excursion and they were calling out only number 3 and we were assigned #6.  She changed our number to 3 and told us to go to the front of the line.  The people waiting seemed upset that we were getting in front of them but if we hadn't we would have missed our excursion.  It seemed if you didn't do your excursions with NCL you got ignored.  It was very hectic and unorganized.  The final disembarkation was just as confusing.  They did not let us know that the taxis were on strike.  We did not even know where to go and that we needed to take a bus outside the port.  It was nice that they came around with water and orange juice while we waited for the bus.  Everyone we spoke to seemed confused as to how too get from the port to the hotel.  No bus schedule was provided we got dropped off with our luggage and had no clue where to go.  We did enjoy the cruise but NCL could have made it alot easier.

38 Tips for Norwegian Spirit

Hit the Windows restaurant right when they open at 5:30pm and you can get a seat right by the windows.

The restaurants always had room with no hurry to sit outside. Love having part of breakfast being served outside.

We flew in early day of trip (8:45) to Barcelona and bought the transfer through Norwegian for $30 each. Because ship was not ready yet they gave us a free tour of Barcelona! Great deal!

See Manuel in The Shanghai Bar for great cocktails and he's very funny too!

To save time and steps, get a room nearer the rear of the ship which is near the elevator to the buffet/dining rooms, entertainment and kids areas as well as up to the pool.

Not much difference between the Garden Room and Windows, but no dressing up for the Garden Room, so if you want to be casual, stick with Raffles and the Garden Room. The sushi restaurant was great, also.

Pay extra to dine at the French Bistro! Best food on the boat!

Check the times for the evening entertainment, as it varies almost daily.

Specialty restaurants nice for longer cruises, giving you different choices for dinner.

Try and make reservations for the sit down complementary restaurants.

Do the specialty dining and great latin music. The Iconics were great, both the singers and the band.

I never saw the whole ship. Never went in the casino my older grandkids enjoyed themselves.

if any person want to have fun and happy time and eat good food and see good shows and live close with people that work inside in the cruse given the best of them to feel the spirit to the people and make them happy , is Norwegian Spirit

Do not go to the Steakhouse. They seemed to serve Kraft Macaroni and Cheese (I told this to the manager and he did not deny it). I could make better food at my house. Not worth the money.

Purchase a suite instead of a balcony room.

The Garden restaurant was fantastic

Buffet off peak hours to avoid crowds

See many tips in my review

Raffles buffet was good

Don't do any excursions through the boat. We booked on our own, had incredible excursions for half the price and only with our traveling group (not one of hundreds!). Save you time, money and you get to see so much more!
