Norwegian Spirit

May 2014 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean

12 Night Grand Mediterranean

Embarkation was somewhat of a "cluster" as signs were not adequate and no queue lines were set up.

We walked into Venice and enjoyed this but do NOT attempt to use the map of Venice as supplied by NCL as you cannot find your way back to the ship using this map.

The room and service was great.

The food was about what I expected and much less than my wife expected.  The buffet is decent but can get very crowded.  The food items are not marked where you can read what they are until you are all the way in front and then the crowds make browsing difficult.  We did enjoy the Windows dining room and most of our meals were there.  The speciality dining is a rip-off as a cruise is supposed to have nice dining as part of the experience.  The speciality restaurants are just a way to jack up the initial prices.

Excursions were very good but to NOT get the NCL excursions - go to and get the equivalent package for 1/2 the NCL price.

Shows were good and most were worth seeing.

Pride of America Pride of America - Dining in the main dining room on deck 5 is much easier than fighting through the buffet.
Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - Go to the windows dining room for breakfast. Same food as the buffet and service is much better. Loved the Blue Lagoon for wings and beer when tired from the excursions or just tired of regular food.
