Norwegian Spirit

September 2015 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Mediterranean

Pay Attention to the Itinerary/Lousy Food

When I read the itinerary for this cruise, it said it started on Sunday in Venice and you could use the ship as a hotel Sunday night as it didn't leave Venice until Monday. Well, what they didn't say was it left Venice Monday at 1 am. Which meant you really had Sunday to see Venice. What a let down. And I wasn't the only one who thought that.

Next, like most ships now, if you want a really decent meal, you have to dine in the 'exclusive' restaurants. Otherwise, you're going to get so-so food, not hot or cold, served by someone who could generally care less. I refused to cave and decided to pretend I was back in college. Come to think of it, dorm food was better.

robinmbyers's Tips

Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey - Unless you want to buy a carpet, pass on the rug demonstration. It was interesting but you can see one on You Tube and it will be cheaper.
Barcelona, Spain - We booked an all day excursion because our flight out wasn't until 5pm. They took us on a couple of hours through town then dropped us at the airport where we sat for hours. Very disappointing.
Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - We booked excursions through Shore Excursions as well as the ship. The former were much cheaper and smaller groups, just as well run - easier in one sense in that you just walked off the ship whereas the ones through the ship required meeting in the large hall then waiting to be called like cattle.
