Excellent Cruise by Meir1204

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

One of the best cruises we ever did, the staff are very friendly and always try and succeed to fulfill your requests. Specially I would like to mention Mr Rodel Solis our waiter in the Windows dining room, remarkable level of service and always with a real smile.

Wonderful western Mediterranean cruise by jeannetoyota

This was a first experience on a cruise holiday for my brother and I. We both had enjoyed sailing on Norwegian Spirit. The staff were friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable and sailing was smooth. However the ship’s announcements could not be heard while we were in our room.

Redeemed! by danar3

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our third cruise on NCL and they had a lot of ground to make up after the first one so I'd consider us good to go now. The staff in almost all cases were top shelf and the special dining, open dining/ Free style set up works very well - on the smaller ships (2,500 passengers) Not so much on the super size ships.

Great cruise but tiring by BoulderCruisers

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was a spectacular cruise but because there were basically no sea days it was a bit exhausting. Being in port each day and not wanting to miss anything meant no down time. We would love to see this cruise add 1 sea day in the middle to recourperate. On the flip side, wouldn’t have missed it for anything.

Enjoyable and exhilarating cruise by venky

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Courteous, professional and helpful staff made passengers feel safe and welcome. Sailing was smooth even on a couple of windy days. Clean and well-equipped cabin -- even for a simple stateroom. Announcements (on TV channel, the daily news bulletin FreeSyleDaily, during the shows, and over the PA system) were prompt, accurate and crisp. Restaurants were good. It would be good to improve the variety of vegetarian menu items (beyond simply pasta). Buffet was of acceptable quality although it was quite busy at times. Many of the daily evening shows were of good quality and entertaining. The two shore excursions we took were superb -- prompt, well-organized, and featuring good guides -- albeit a bit pricey. Overall, it was a great experience for both of us. Photos by Alamelu, iReport

Great ports of call by cwald

Our third cruise with Norwegian, second on the Spirit. She's showing here age in places but the older design with the aft decks open to the sea are a real plus. We will sail Norwegian again and have no problem doing so aboard the Spirit.

We would like to hear more. by adelmeka

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

NO communication from staff. Captain, who we loved, provided only information about our voyage and that wasn’t in our staterooms. Hire travel agent to provide information about ports, geographical features, locations passing. Ship should have this provided. Updates to computer system needs to be made. Slide shows about ports, history, where we are traveling, not a few photos on a board. Very disappointed. I would rank this a zero on any scale.

Awesome itinerary/sights/people, OK boat, dated rooms by rolinfam5

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We really enjoyed the cruise and itinerary. The convenience of dining and upgraded dining options was great for us and our desires. The entertainment was OK but not earth shattering. Room is dated and could use a refresh but given the rigorous docking schedule we didn't mind. Italy ports were by far our favorites outside of Rhodes.

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

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

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.

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 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.

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.
