Norwegian Spirit

February 2017 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Western Europe

Fantastic cruise. Only let down was the weather which couldn't be helped.

A group of 5 of us travelled on the Norweigen's Spirit and thoroughly enjoyed it! It is true that the ship is a little aged, but 4 of us had cruised on the Spirit before and knew what to expect, and the age of the ship certainly did not impact on the fantastic time that we had.

The complimentary food on the ship is great value for money. We preferred the Windows restaurant for our evening meal, rather than the Garden. We also visited Cagney's 4 times in 10 nights and it really couldn't be faulted (we had the 4UDP). The porterhouse and tomahawk steaks are huge.

As usual, drinks were great because we had the UBP included, only thing to note is that the menu has recently changed and some drinks are slightly more expensive than previous so not included in the UBP. This was fine - we either had the drinks that were included, or opted to pay the extra for the more expensive drinks... where else can you get a cherry grey goose vodka and lemonade for $2.30!

 

A few of us made use of the onboard spa and we were very impressed with it, the staff were friendly and polite and the prices of the treatments were reasonable and there were always different offers and deals on.

 

Every staff member that we came across was fun and friendly and really helped make this holiday one of the best I've ever had. Mr Happy Happy in the Shanghai bar was great! We spent more time in the onboard nightclub on this trip, more so than last time and really enjoyed it- the barmen were great and knew our drinks by day 5  Happy We also went to the White hot party and enjoyed our night.

 

All in all we had a great time and made some great friends from across the world, both staff and other travellers. Although we are looking forward to our next cruise on the Epic as it is a much newer and much bigger ship, I would definitely return to the Spirit in the future.

amynor11's Tips

Barcelona, Spain - We visited La Sagrada Familia - it was beautiful inside. We stayed one night in Barcelona before the cruise and Las Ramblas was great!
Malaga, Spain - We definitely want to return to Malaga for a short city break as there was lots to see and do and plenty of bars and restaurants.
Funchal, Madeira - Take a tuk-tuk tour to the local villages and to the church at the top of the hill near the toboggans. They driver will wait for you to finish on the toboggans and meet you at the end before taking you back into the centre. This cost us €45pp and we really enjoyed it.
Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - Book a balcony cabin and order complimentary continental breakfast room service, just in time to watch the sun rise over the ocean, it was lovely.
