Loved Iceland and Norway! by lesleyhallick

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We love ncl for its freedom, informality and most of all for the diversity of its staff. The Norwegian staff were fantastic and this itinerary was absolutely terrific. We have cruised for years, but this is the first cruise we have taken since both of us have had mobility issues and we were disappointed that the excursions had no offerings that were really doable for us - we took four level 1 excursions and they were quite challenging. We bailed (even after paying) on three - just too hard. I hope that the market for aging boomers will force the availability of better choices over time - mostly a port problem, I realize, but we have seen wheelchair symbols by some excursions on other cruise lines. But overall it was marvelous and we remain loyal Norwegian fans.

Horrible ship by nvsue33758894

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Extremely disappointing. Food was below par. Never got our latitudes welcome letter, no cocktail party, ship is in major need of upgrades and new chefs! Was an expensive disappointment.

Great vacation exploring the Mediterranean by cynthias51

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Despite of some of the issues that were previously mentioned, we really enjoyed our trip. The time allotted for Crete was insanely short ( it takes approximately 15 or 20 minutes to get from the port into town) ; too short for any excursion.

We had a wonderful time on this cruise. Much better than expected by frankfmiles

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

After reading past reviews we were somewhat skeptical but the cruise was wonderful. The people were great and so friendly. Shows were very good, Ship was very clean. Would go on this ship again at any time. Love the smaller ships with limited passengers. The passengers on our cruise were friendly and met many new friends and had a great time. I would have liked to have seen more products such as t-shirts and sweat shirts for sale with a greater selection.

Get Price Alert

Strong and potent gas odor throughout the ship. Many cabins under renovation. Bad fumes. by mrsmoody514

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)

The ports were great. The entertainment was good, but wished there was a comedy show. Dinner service was slower than usual. Food tasted good. The ships odors were unbearable many times throughout the trip. Inside the cabins smelled like diahrea. Drinks were VERY expensive.

Awesome cruise! by Micber

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Simply an awesome cruise from all perspectives! All connections were on time. All the shore excursions were wonderful. The skip-the-line tour of Vatican City and the Tuscan Farmhouse tour standout. Our ship room was very comfortable, always had a wonderful view from our balcony, and all staff were very friendly. We fully enjoyed ourselves. Awesome!

Wonderful Cruise by mam465

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Overall, this was a great cruise. Any improvements would mostly be in the excursions. Some guides were wonderful to be with and informative. Others, not. Also, the activity levels need to be accurate and a full description should be included, and the guides should be asked to adhere to the information we guests signed up for. A good example happened in Rome on the last day. The guide provided a far different tour than what was described and activity level was way off.

Nonstop Mediterranean cruise by asialovelle

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Went for our honeymoon and met a handful of other "young professional" type travelers. The majority of guests are older adults my parent's age.

Great Cruise by Inhuman

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Lived the cruise overall. Lots of excellent ports and entertainment was amazing. Few minor boat gripes and the tendering was terrible.

Average Carribean Cruise by trhaynes1

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We chose the Spirit for a second time because of the itinerary. The shore excursions we selected were wonderful but the Spirit needs to be updated-signs of wear are apparent. Additionally, since guests are charged the gratuity beforehand, in my mind there is no incentive for the cabin stewards to go out of their way to please! The attitudes I have encountered are lackadaisical at best!!

It exceed my expectations in most of the cruise except the excursion by ScottNg

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I am happy with most of the areas. The excursion was very upsetting. The Brazilian guy who present the excursions is completely lack of passion and interest. The material were very outdated. The images are really bad. One thing I found it unacceptable was at Alicante. There was a free shuttle available but it was never mentioned anywhere. Not even on the daily new letter. This is very unsetting to us.

Bumps on Board Canary Islands cruise by cgcurley

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Menus need updating if they are to be accurate & NOT misleading. In Le Bistrot: there was NOT a chèvre croquette on the chèvre salad, just some bread cubes with a honey/goat cheese spread (gag!) Also instead of RACK of lamb, there were two chops like those served in Cagneys. In the main dining room: the Caesar salad had NO white anchovies, but quite dark brown ones. Not the promised more refined quality. And the Bananas Foster came with raw bananas floating in cold caramel sauce. Waited 20 minutes for properly sautéed warm bananas. There is a way to quietly clear tables without clanging all the dishes: teach the bussers ! BRING EARPLUGS. There is a lot of noise in the public areas.

Canary Islands Adventure by sheatsley280

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

First cruise on NCL. Had its ups & downs. The flooded corridor was not appreciated and should have been fixed before we boarded. Not lots of activities by day. Only three sea days so we were tired after visiting so many ports of call. One of the best cabins we have stayed in. Give them a try.

5 of 6 stops were excellent, the ship was horrible. by ethanham

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This is an older boat with not much to do. The pools were closed most of the time due to heavy seas and was cold enough that sitting outside for long periods of time was not possible for most of the trip. The boat has no real activities unless you like to gamble, and there is are only 6 English speaking tv channels 4 of which are news, 1 sports and 1 movie channel. Also there tends to be an older crowd on this boat which isn't bad but those are the type of activities you'll find on the boat. Don't bother with the internet, its a colossal waste of money. You can't ever get logged in and when you do its slower than molasses. The food wasn't that great, best place to eat we discovered was at the blue lagoon. Also since everyone has to eat breakfast at the buffet the seating is difficult to find unless you go outside which is alright unless its cold. Overall the ship experience was poor but the stops were excellent.

Not as good as previous NCL Cruises by pjreed

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

There were a lot of highs and unfortunately a lot of lows with this cruise. Looking back we really like the ports that we visited and overall the ship was clean and the onboard staff that we interacted with were great. We enjoyed all the lounge acts and give a particular shout out to Pablo in Henry's Pub! He was an amazing guitarist and had a quiet humor that always made us smile. The down sides were that they changed our itinerary and we didn't get to go to Casablanca as planned, the quality of some of shows were below what we expected from NCL and the food was pretty much below grade. Other than the meals we had at the steak house, if this was a $12 a plate restaurant we would not go back.
