April 2015 - 12 Night Grand Mediterranean (Barcelona To Venice) Cruise on Norwegian Spirit
Great cruise on the Spirit
We enjoyed our cruise on the Norwegian Spirit because it is a beautiful ship with elegant decor. We also enjoyed the meals, but were disappointed that passengers were not allowed a lobster meal except with an extra charge. Of all our cruising, this was a bad first. Hope that changes! Staff were excellent and most of the many shore excursions were worth the money. Exception would be the Istanbul excursion (4 and 1/2 hr. tour became 7 hrs. due to extreme traffic, monotone, boring leader, and too much rug showing).
This cruise had many positive features such as wonderful entertainment, good choices for meals, nice dining areas, plus more. I personally would have preferred a second regular swimming pool rather than a heated giant spa-like pool (really too warm for much swimming).
But we had a very pleasant trip, seeing places we had always wanted to see, which made this cruise highly recommended by us.
