The ship, Norwegian Spirit and the crew terrific. The hassle after docking and locating your "tour" needs much improvement! Realizing that more than a few cruise ships are docking and debarking around the same time is taken into consideration but airport terminals have the same problem but they handle the situations much more smoothly. The "Cruise" Industry can come together and improve these ports.

Food and Dining
Dining and the options....terrific!
Service and Staff
Great commutations with all.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
Love the destinations and 99% of the guides. When taking the "Exclusive Best of Rome" tour, offered by United Cruise the "guide" that was to meet us at the dock with the bus directed the bus driver to leave prior to eight of us being on board the bus. The eight of us then paid a taxi driver 50 euros "each" to catch the bus so we could enjoy the tour that we paid for!!!!
Ship Quality
Cleanliness was excellent. Rare that I got a hot shower though. The casino needs to be relocated to a brighter and more welcoming area
Embarkation and Disembarkation
A lot of work needed here....visit an airport and see how they handle crowds.
Cabin / Stateroom
Great location. Made it easy for morning coffee. Love hot showers occasionally .... never got one!!!!
Venice, Italy
Kusadasi (Ephesus), Turkey
Istanbul, Turkey
Mykonos, Greece
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Naples, Italy
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
Toulon, France This is a perhaps a not so hidden gem. Love the people and the place.
Barcelona, Spain
Too many much see places to mention.


Get to the pool your towel and dine. If you do not return within the hour staff will remove your towel and you'll be looking for another chair.
