12 Night Grand Mediterranean (Venice To Barcelona)
Sail Date: May 31, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Spirit
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 11268
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The ship has very SMALL cabins,our balcony was smaller than an inside in a Carnival or Celebrity ship.The bathroom shower had mold,the linens were old frayed and stained.

The dining package for the specialty restaurants is a MUST HAVE,the food in the regular restaurants isn`t up to the standards of a RCL,Celebrity or even Carnival.

The shows were good and,the service too,the pool area wasn`t crowed and it helps that they have a separate pool in a different area fro the kids

Take this cruise for the ports of call and the rates if you can overlook the shortcomings.The specials with the drinks and specialty restaurants is a good deal
