12 Night Grand Mediterranean (Venice To Barcelona)
Sail Date: May 23, 2013
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 10671
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago
The 12 day cruise was nice. We picked this trip because of the stops from Venice to Barcelona - although Izmir, Turkey was really not a necessary stop. The ship was old, and compared to other newer ships I have traveled in the past this one was pretty beaten up. Besides this, the food was OK, the service was excellent except at the sit down restaurants where the staff where at some times rude. We where a bit disappointed with the mis lead of the cruise itinerary, we believed we had 2 full days in Venice, Italy when in fact its only 1 day followed by 2 sea days, which where a bit boring due to the lack of activities towards our age group.

Overall I would recommend this trip to a friend but maybe on board another ship.

We only had 1 day in Venice - not 2 - this is mis leading.
