Dissapointment - Ship was to old and runned down, too smelly, disorganized and enormous, lack of maintenance. Stateroom 11131 so noisy that sleeping was almost impossible. by linda15r

Cruise Ship should be refurbished and it should not be used under the conditions is in. For the price that was paid for the inside cabin, in another cruise company it was a balcony. Furthermore, the stateroom 11131 should not be sold. Is above the kitchen and the noise is unverable. One thinks that someone is inside the room or that there are metals and glasses falling from the ceiling. Horrible vacations.

Memorable Mediterranean & Adriatic Cruise by carolpowell

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Overall the staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. Dining staff were very accommodating and remembered our favorites and preferences. Cabin staff always willing to assist, however, seemed to have a limited knowledge of the ship. Customer Service very helpful.

A greatly anticipated cruise with my family, celebrating my 70th birthday. Quite disappointed with the staffing issues.

Great trip and still a bit disappointing! by loralheister

I liked my trip but would have loved it if the ship was better all around. I felt 1/2 the staff was ready to be done and the other 1/2 treated me like a queen.

Golden Oldies Cruise by klsred5

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

I felt like a pinata that Norwegian Cruise Lines would wack daily to see how much money they could get to fall from me. The ship was old and outdated. The passengers, while nice, were older and thus the ship went quiet at 10:30pm.

Disappointing by TravelingTrish

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This is a very port intensive itinerary. During our trip in September 2018 each port was very hot and humid - something I was not prepared for. The ship is small and relatively easy to get around and not get lost. It seemed to be reasonably clean and well maintained. Our cabin steward, Kus, did a wonderful job! The one issue we had was taken care of immediately. Food on the ship is fair at best. By the end of the 3rd day I was tired of the same unimaginative and overly salted offerings. Service at Windows and The Garden Room was inconsistent. After this experience I would not rush back to sail with NCL.

Great ports of call by jmaves820

This ship is an older ship, good for ports of call. If you’re going for great food and service,choose another ship line.

Excellent Cruise along the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas by drbell

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We had cruised on the NCL Spirit prior to the Eastern Med area....Great cruise. This route of this cruise included Venice, and the countries along the East coast for the Adriatic Sea, Corfu, and Malta. We like this ship and its size. You never feel crowded and there is plenty of cruise type stuff to do. Wonderful staff from cabins, wait staff, greeters at restaurants, etc

Mediterranean/Adriatic Cruise by gojdas

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This cruise included what we want to see. I also felt like I was being nicked and dimed for such thing like water and drinks. We did have ultimate drink package which was only good for drink up to $15 and could not be combined to purchase that $33 bottle of wine which also had a corkage fee and 20% gratuities fee. This brought the cost closer to $40 even with the not so ultimate drink package. No bottled water or soft drinks were included with the ultimate package, a real let down.

The itinerary was the best part of the vacation. Not so good about the ship. Waited over an hour for breakfast. 2.5 hours for dinner missing the show, 1.5 hours in line for a tender, have to walk through smokey casino to get to the night club. by wrightglte

The ports of call would be the only reason I would go on this particular ship again.

Great Service and Historic Sites by lihaugodden

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

So much fun. The staff was great and the service was superb. I wish I had more time at all the ports but that can't be helped. Yummy food, and fun entertainment. The boat could use some updating, our shower was falling apart, thought the staff quickly re-did some tiles. But we had no problems outside that!

Great Itinerary by MelSherry

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The strongest aspect of this cruise was the itinerary. Have never seen a better line up of ports in the Eastern Med. This was the reason we took this cruise and we are glad we did. We liked Norwegian's free style cruising. We don't go on cruises to get dressed in tux and tails.

Ship has been update nicely. Very clean and modern. Open pool area nice for sunning! We found this to be on par with Holland and Princess, all having there small differences, but would do NCL and the spirit again.!

Wonderful cruise - very happy with ship, staff, and itinerary by BethanieKay

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Spirit is one of the older ships in the NCL fleet, but it's clean and well-maintained. It doesn't have all the fancy bells and whistles that the newer mega-ships have, but the smaller capacity means the ship is easier to get around and feels more intimate. The staff was fabulous; everyone was friendly, helpful, and did their best to make our vacation fantastic. The food and drink were perfectly fine, and so were the activities. We really appreciated the Freestyle Cruising concept, and were happy we weren't forced to eat at assigned times, sitting with strangers. We very much enjoyed the itinerary; every port was different, and with the exception of the massive issues with returning to the ship in Santorini, all the ports were really wonderful. Overall this was a fantastic vacation, and we definitely look forward to Cruising like a Norwegian again in the future :)

We really enjoyed the cruise. Weather in Greek Islands from late spring is warm to hot while there's lots of history and culture to experience. Ship was excellent - food, shows etc. We will look forward to our return.

Did not like the food in the Raffles Court that much. it was ok. The food in the specialty restaurants and in the main dining rooms was much better. The itinerary was great!
