Summary:  Just returned from my first ever cruise with NCL and it rates as one of my best yet (out of 10 previous cruises in past 3 years). We had the premium drinks package and pre-paid gratuities and I have to say they were very generous with the quantity and quality of the drinks available (any drink up to the value of $15). I rarely drink alcohol but was always served with a smile every time I asked for any type or mix of non-alcoholic drinks and Pepsi and 7 Up were served from cans. Previous cruise ships have usually only offered fizzy drinks from the tap or sickly sweet virgin cocktails. Food was excellent in both Raffles buffet and Windows dining rooms. There was an amazing selection which was always fresh and tasty. Orange (tasted like freshly squeezed), Apple, Cranberry juices and lemonade were available 24/7 in Raffles. There were a good number of food stations to have your food cooked just how you like it. We ate in 3 of the specialty restaurants - Cagney's Steakhouse, La Trattoria and Le Bistro. Food was excellent in all but service wasn't quite up to scratch in Le Bistro. The staff were so happy and friendly throughout the ship and service was generally excellent. We were onboard in time for lunch on embarkation day and never once had to queue for anything - restaurant tables, embarkation, disembarkation - everything was very well organised and very relaxed. Our outside cabin was a bit on the small side but seemed much roomier after we asked for the double bed to be made up as 2 singles. It was lovely to have full sized shower with a sliding glass door. There was more than enough room for everyone on the ship. Even on sea days there were plenty of free sun-beds and buffet dining tables. The only downside for me was the quality (or lack of) entertainment in the Stardust Theatre. eg, the singer/impressionist was very dated and boring. Also I wasn't attracted by many of the daily activities. Of course one of the best things about the cruises was having a zero stateroom bill at the end of it all. I'd definitely look to sail with NCL again. It just had a such lovely relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we wanted for nothing

Summary:  Sailed 18.5 2017. 2nd time on this ship. Its immaculate and beautiful, and clean. Food is 5 star as is the customer service. This is the smallest ship of the fleet, so there are no race tracks or fairgrounds on board. Just a sophisticated cruise experience, where you can be as casual or dressy to suit you. What we particularly like is the fact that you can eat at whatever time you wish. Western Med itinerary was fantastic. Have just booked again for next year.

Summary:  To any one going on a first Cruise as my wife and I have just done Norwegian Spirit was ideal .very relaxed from the start, although I would not suggest boarding at the exact time required as it tends to be rather manic. Once this is done everything else is a breeze If I was to offer one note of warning it would be ,take the drinks package ,don,T buy bottles of wine it's ridiculously priced buy by the glass it's the same wine,and dont buy bottles of water ask for ordinary water which is perfectly acceptable. If you have the drinks package it,s just a case of handing over your piece of plastic and if the drinks are less than $15 then there is nothing to pay . Also I would suggest. Asking at reception to have the automatic 18% deduction for gratuities removed which they will do,then you can tip those that you feel deserve it Also. to those ever growing band of unfortunate coeliac/gluten free sufferers worry not as long as you notify the company when booking ,and the resterant on arrival ,they have a very competent team to look after you which makes the cruise so much more enjoyable.

Summary:  This was our first cruise, whilst we were a little nervous due to the new experience we weren't disappointed. The whole experience was fantastic. The only complaints were very nit picking. If I had to complain about something it was the embarkation from Venice. We had pre checked in on line but were kept waiting for nearly two hours only to get on board and left to find our rooms ourselves. We soon forgot this however as the ship, crew, food etc etc were fantastic. We wouldn't hesitate to go on this ship again.

Summary:  Please Norwegian cruise line we are paying good money for our cruise. So to be told you can't use the steam room or sauna unless you pay is ridiculous. Then when you try to pay you are told there's no more availability! Sort this out it's not a good selling point for NCL. Casino- roulette tables don't use . when you see passengers losing all the time this is a sign steer clear! No zeros or double zeros being thrown you know something's wrong! other clever tricks so that they sweep up and you get nothing! other than that food was good however cabin room size too small ridiculous room service rules! I don't think I'll go back to NCL unless they change these rules

Summary:  We have loved NCL in the past but this trip was a disaster. Our balcony stateroom smelled of sewage from day two. We were given only one washcloth for two people daily. Not one single towel animal. Mold in the shower. We had to ask for toilet paper because they removed ours. When all of this was repeatedly told to the front desk all they said was they would alert housekeeping. I finally demanded that they do something or I was going to fly home from the next port, they had me pack up and switch rooms with one day left on my cruise. The second room was slightly better. This is a very old ship. Lots of problems. Everyone on here has had problems. The ports are great because you get to get off the ship. I will NEVER sail on this ship again. You couldn't pay me too.

Summary:  We were on the spirit 16 Sept 2015. It was a dream holiday. Ports were great. worth while to book shore excursions. We booked 5 of the 10 ports. Excellent tour guides well informed and we'll organised. Food was excellent especially The Windows and Gardens restaurants. We loved the Burger area on deck 13. All ports were great but look out for pushy sales man at Kusadasi. Cabin big enough for two. Stateroom on deck 6. bathroom was clean and really well equipped. Great service from all the cruise staff. Really a family feeling amongst staff, but still very professional and friendly.
