May 2014 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean
The staff was great: the food was not. I could not drink the coffee, there was no seafood, and the food
varied a great deal, with desserts being the best. I did not like being subjected to buying "opportunities" both on board and in Turkey. I would have liked more time in the ports and less on the ship. The tours we took were mostly too long for one day and should have been broken up with some free time to shop or explore. I did not get much interaction with locals other than the guides. The internet was expensive, phone service not there much of the time, and very little TV, including news or stock reports, so I felt very cut off. This was my first cruise, and I can not compare, but I have heard other cuise lines have seafood. I even paid one night for the specialty restaurant, and did not like the entree.
