Great Experience

Sail Date: September 03, 2014

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

While the Norwegian Spirit is an older vessel, it is still well-maintained.  The crew was OUTSTANDING, the food plentiful and adequate.  There was a multitude of activities, and one could keep as busy as desired.  For us it was a wonderful experience and one we would recommend.

Venice, Italy
Took a ride on the Grand Canal rather then a gondola ride. Do it during daylight when there's more to see.
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
The Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum were our favorites.
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Loved the shopping
Istanbul, Turkey
Too crowded to enjoy.
Mykonos, Greece
Lovely island to be enjoyed.
Naples, Italy
Much to see in such a short time
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Loved seeing all the sites, but the crowds were distracting and made the visit less than enjoyable.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy We toured Tuscany prior to the cruise so we did not get off the ship here. Those who did felt there was too much to be covered in one day.
Toulon, France
Didn't care for this at all. Felt it was just a "filler" stop.
Barcelona, Spain Got off the ship and onto a plane. Did not visit.


Dining at Raffles is good and expedient. Multiple choices all day long.
