Review Summary

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.

Ship Tip

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

Ports Of Call

Venice, Italy

3 out of 5
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.

Lovely island to be enjoyed.

Naples, Italy

5 out of 5
Much to see in such a short time

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

5 out of 5
Loved seeing all the sites, but the crowds were distracting and made the visit less than enjoyable.

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy Did not visit port

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

1 out of 5
Didn't care for this at all. Felt it was just a "filler" stop.

Barcelona, Spain Did not visit port

Got off the ship and onto a plane. Did not visit.
