Norwegian Spirit

May 2014 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean

The ports were great

Having done two other cruises before on different cruise lines, this cruise stands out due to the ports visited. Although it was nice to try out the "Freestyle Dining", I found that I missed the consistency of having our own table every night (with a party of 8, this actually may have helped to have had the servers know what to expect from us every night instead of constantly moving from table to table with such a large group). Additionally, although the ship was nice, compared to the two others I had cruised on, this one showed some age and wear. The rooms were nice and large though, so that was a nice perk.

jkid's Tips

Naples, Italy - be sure to go outside and do a tour of the Amalfi coast! Get a small car with a knowledgable driver and be SURE to eat off the beaten path. Hands down the best food of the whole trip was just outside the city of Amalfi.
Istanbul, Turkey - totally doable on your own. transportation is soo easy. be sure to get lira though - euros don't go too far.
Mykonos, Greece - omg. favorite stop. ignore all excursions. simply go into town, rent a crappy looking scooter and take off. You can ride all around the island in an afternoon and still have time to get delicious gyros before heading back to the ship. Just be careful of the on-coming traffic :)
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy - It's SO busy. be sure to get advanced tickets to things you really want to do (really - it's THAT busy that this is totally worth it).
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy - I love Florence. Climb to the top of the Duomo. It's not that bad (I know 436 steps sounds intimidating) but it's an easy walk up and the view is so worth it.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - Didn't know Ephesus was just an ancient city of ruins (not an active, current city). Schedule time accordingly.
Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - Don't do any excursions through the boat. We booked on our own, had incredible excursions for half the price and only with our traveling group (not one of hundreds!). Save you time, money and you get to see so much more!
