Norwegian Spirit

June 2016 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean

A very complete cruise !!!! Un crucero muy complete!!!!

This is my second time doing the same intinerary.  NCL made a couple changes, instead of Turkey, they added Kotor-Montenegro and Dubrovnik-Croatia....Amazing places. I love the Free Style theme, dress up if I want to. The food was ok. The shore excursions are over priced BUT some are worth it; e.g.: Naples: if you ONLY want to go to Pompeii, you pay $15 per person for a bus and at Pompaii  you can get a guide for $15 extra.  BUT if you want to go to Capri,Sorrento and Pompeii, it is better to pay a NCL shore excursion $325, includes lunch and its worry free that you are going to miss the cruise ship.  Like I said before the shore excursions are over priced but you pay for a unique service.

Mfontain's Tips

Dubrovnik, Croatia - I took a taxi. The driver took us to the most beautiful site seeing, €50 per hour. If you want to go to the wine and olive oil vineyard you must take a NCL shore excursion.
Kotor, Montenegro - I didn't climb the steps because it was so hot after my shore excursion. But, if you are not planning to take a shore excursion. Get up early and go for a walk on the steps.
Naples, Italy - Only to Pompaii or Vesuvius get the bus that it is out of the port. But if I wanted to go somewhere else, I will get a short excursion.
Barcelona, Spain - Nice! I rented a car and went to Monserrat. The most beautiful and strange mountains. On top of the mountain is the Monserrat basilica.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy - I was able to enjoy Pisa and Florence by renting a car. €90 plus gps. The drive was easy. People in Italy are really good drivers but they don't have patience so do NOT expect to respect your right of way. Be aware of your surroundings Also, their signs are different then American signs. It is important to google them. Be aware of your speed as there are electronic speed detectors everywhere. The gps was handy because it alerted me, but sometimes it was upsetting since they change the posted speed changed without warning. Italy and whole Europe use Km so they drive slower than US. But the highway is faster.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece - Take the hop on hop off bus, it is the way to go. There is a face care product called APIVITA. Only if I knew it was that good, I would get more. You can get it in pharmacy.
Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - Corner rooms are spacious. 9th floor is good, not too much noise. Also, get unlimited wifi as soon as you get to the ship. It will save you time and money, another reason to relax.
