August 2015 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean
Great cruise with an itinerary that will give you a sampling of the magnificent historical sites of the Mediterranean. The Norwegian Star is an older, smaller ship that has a closer, friendlier atmosphere than than the mega ships that are so common today. " Free style" cruising is nice for those who want a more relaxed dress code and less restrictions on dining times. Tons of ship sponsored excursions are offered to see all the sights you read about in your history class. Be forewarned that the really good excursions are long, crowded and hectic. If you have trouble walking or tend to wander from the the group you might get left behind. The tour guides are just that, not babysitters. Our party took this cruise in late August/early September and the weather was very hot (high 80's, low90's). As a veteran of many cruises I can say that this was one of the most enjoyable I have been on.
