We chose this because of the nine ports, and all of them were interesting... a perfect way to get to see such islands as Malta and Rhodes... places we would otherwise never get to see. Sadly Valetta was crowded and streets were closed ... Read more

We chose this cruise because our friends are big NCL fans. Even they were disappointed. We liked the itinerary, with the exception of the port at Messina, Sicily. This port city is run down and we could not find a way to get to other, more ... Read more

This was my first cruise, although my partner has been on one cruise before, in the Caribbean. I really enjoyed my first cruise experience. Embarkation was fine once we had managed to get to the ship, having walked all the way from the ... Read more

We chose this cruise for our honeymoon because of the itinerary and the price point. We were impressed with some aspects, but others left much to be desired. The room itself (10588) was in a great location, but there were constant ... Read more

Our 2nd cruise on the Spirit. We chose this ship again because it is smaller and more sophisticated than some of the larger ones that have water parks , and fairground rides. We are a couple in our 50s and we love the customer ... Read more

I've cruised on another Norwegian ship as I love Italy and the Mediterranean and this cruise took me to places I hadn't visited. The price was right too. We landed in Rome the day before and spent some time on the hop on hop off buses. ... Read more

We picked this cruise because we like NCL and we wanted to start and end in Rome. A stop in Marseilles was also important. NCL treated us well. We used none on the NCL sponsored shore excursions and booked all our own tours with others ... Read more

Itinerary was superb, weather was glorious and excursions booked through outside vendors were amazing. The NCL Spirit is a ship needing to go to drydock for serious updating. Cabins are small, balconies even smaller (knees hit glass as ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary. It was fabulous! We were in a suite so embarkation and disembarkation was a breeze. The concierge, Monica, did a fabulous job in getting us everything, including dinner reservations when ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the time of year (our anniversary) and the location (Mediterranean with several ports of call that were new to us). Embarkation was disorganized, but that might just have been Barcelona rather than any ... Read more

The NCL Spirit is an older ship. The smaller size makes it a lot more comfortable than the big mega ships floating around these days. The bathroom was average. It did have an enclosed glass shower ( not a curtain, but glass doors) as ... Read more

My wife and I selected this cruise solely because of the itinerary as we really wanted to go to Israel and this was the only NCL cruise going there. The fact that several other ports are not on the regular schedule was an added bonus. We ... Read more

We were a little apprehensive going onto the Spirit because we'd most recently been on the Epic and thought that the size difference would be a problem. We couldn't have been more wrong - it was delightful. The boarding could have been ... Read more

We chose this cruise mainly because of its itinerary. The ship itself was nothing to write home about but served the purpose just fine. We are not wall climbers or wave runner people so none of that stuff was missed. If you are looking ... Read more
