September 2014 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean
Good ports of call and did have time to use public transportation to get into Athens, Lucca and Rome. Took cruise ship tour to Aix au Provence, then went off on own and not with the guide. This worked out well, but could have used a couple of more hours in the town and eliminated a 30 minute toilet stop on the way in to town. The drive from Toulon to Aux au Provence takes only one hour but public transport is not really an option. Food in main dining rooms was not creative and showed no imagination in presentation. We have cruised in Europe with other cruise lines and the food on all was far superior. Rate food on level of Applebee's or mid level restaurants. We did pick this cruise because of itinerary and all ports met expectations. Did have to miss Mykonos due to high winds and unable to tender in, ship docked in town or all other ports.
