Norwegian Spirit

February 2017 - Norwegian Spirit to Europe - Western Mediterranean

Great Itinerary; Excellent Service; Had a great time

This cruise is port intensive allowing us to visit 9 great ports (including Barcelona) in a short time. Also it is a bonus that, due to bad weather in Marseille, NCL Spirit chose to stop at Monte Carlo instead of Marseille. The weather was great every day and we had a great time in every city even though that we had been many of these cities before. For such a port intensive cruise, it did not bother us that the on board activities (not the parties) are lacking. The service on board of the ship is excellent and the crew bent over backward to accommodate passengers consisting mostly seasoned travelers. There were only a handful of kids and one hardly noticed their existence. We had no problem getting into any restaurant without reservation. The gym is small but adequate since most passengers did not use it. The complimentary steam and sauna are also a bonus. Overall, we and our friends had a wonderful time both on and off the ship. We are frequent cruisers and can only hope that every cruise is like this one.

Celebrity Equinox

May 2015 - Celebrity Equinox to Europe - Mediterranean

Beautiful ship and we were so spoiled

We had a great time and were so spoiled. About the ship, it is by far one of the most beautiful ships that we had sailed on. For this cruise, although there were almost 3000 cruisers on the ship, we never felt crowded. The fellow cruisers are seasoned cruisers who knows how to enjoy a quiet and relax atmosphere and are courteous to each other. We did open seating dining. We never had to wait for a table for two. In fact, they saved the same table for us every night. The food was great and the server and assistant spoiled us every night. I loved the fitness center that has all kinds of the equipments and it was never very crowded. The Persian Garden was great and is a wonderful place to rest after spending a long day onshore. Also I provided some feedbacks to the staffs and they got back to me quickly and showed sincere appreciation to feedbacks from cruisers. I was impressed. All in all, we loved the ship, the crew and the itinerary. We will cruise on it again.

ronfc's Tips

Norwegian Spirit Norwegian Spirit - Most NCL Spirit itinerary is port intensive. Although many passengers are off the ship on port days, they still made restaurant (including specialty) reservations that they cannot keep. So just walk up and, most of the time, you will be serve.
Valletta, Malta - Use the HOHO bus to go to Mdina and then get back on to get an overview of the city. Don't get off at unpopular stops since it may take a long while to get back on since most will stay on for the duration.
Valencia, Spain - Great town, one can go anywhere with a 24 hr Valencia bus card.
Barcelona, Spain - Use the Metro to get around and the internet to book last minute tickets. Food and drinks are cheaper just couple blocks off the main strip.
Naples, Italy - Make up a party of 4 and it will cost you less to hire a cab to visit all the nearby famous places. Also you can decide on the amount of time spent. But be mindful that the cab driver is not a tour guide.
Celebrity Equinox Celebrity Equinox - Most cruisers dined at the Main Dining Room or specialty restaurants. The food was great at these places. But, if you like to dine alone in a quiet place, you can do the buffet.
