Norwegian Spirit

October 2017 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean

Best of five NCL ships, I have sailed with.

Great ship, outstanding staff & very clean, and interesting ports. Food was only average or less, especially dinning room food. Recommend you improve it or turn it into another buffet / modified to be a combination of buffet and dinning room (service).

Pride of America

October 2015 - Pride of America to Hawaii

NCL's Best Ship yet

Overall the best ship, for cleanliness, most staff cheerful & helpful, and really a good room porter.  We have been on eight ships, and the others do not match up. BTW, the Captain is a squared away, competent, and decent man. 

 

I will recommend this ship, and destinations to others.

alhager's Tips

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - Well laid out. Review and confirm travel time from the port to the Rome airport. We were told by NCL that it would take over two hours. Also we were told that we COULD NOT get off the ship before 8 AM. Nevertheless, many of the local people we talked with said it was less than one hour from port to airport - we made it in 50 minutes. We were through the inspections and on the pier at 7 AM!
Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - Walk the whole ship, soon after boarding. It has many places that are good to hang out while at sea. Also, learn how to get to get off the ship at the ports.
Santorini, Greece - Outstanding scenery and houses on the side of the mountain, down to the beach. took many pictures which equaled the scenes in the movies showing Oia. ***Be prepared for the shuttle boats, as the ship was anchored off. Exasperating later to learn of having to deal with a shuttle boat while managing our three grandchildren. However, prior to the trip, when i called NCL, I was flatly told NO anchorages??? Don't understand why NCL rep did not know this???
Naples, Italy - Amalfi coast, Valletta were all so scenic we wanted to come back. Pompeii was interesting, and liked seeing the dug up city which was buried by mountain ash, 2,000 years ago.
Pride of America Pride of America - Stick with the buffet, the three other dinning rooms are average...
