A great cruise to the British Isles from Southampton.

Jul 20th, 2019

This was a dream itinerary and the Spirit did not disappoint. The port of calls were interesting and the northern ports were outstanding and the people seemed to appreciate our visiting their beautiful countries. One shop in Portland mentioned that they only have been open for cruise ships for three years and the Spirit was the largest ship to date. The NCL is the oldest ship in Norwegian fleet but they have managed to keep it fresh mostly up to date. The decor is a little strange as it has an oriental bent but since it originally sailed in Asia it makes more sense. This ship is scheduled to have a 5 week refit in the spring and I would guess this issue would be addressed as well as the limited power outlets in the cabins.

Hard to beat itinerary

Jul 15th, 2019

This itinerary which included Iceland was fabulous. We had 90% sunshine. We had good sailings. The long days with so much sunshine was hard to beat. Always wear layers. Even when it was cold we weren’t cold. Take a headband for the wind. Mini gloves were useful. Wear a high neck zip up sweatshirt. Keep your camera in your pocket for whale sightings and the beautiful snow covered mountains.

Worst Cruise Ever

Jul 12th, 2019

Overall this is a good cruise itinerary however we only experienced half because of lack of Visa for Southern Ireland. Several other passengers experienced this ordeal, hence there is need for better communication about visa requirements for international passengers since visa to UK is not sufficient for this excursion.

This ship is very old. After it goes into dry dock for a few months or should improve. The itinerary is awesome (norway fjords). I always sail in an aft penthouse and the engine on this ship was so loud and shook the entire aft section. Sleep was not something i had much of because if this. Food was ok. Staff are awesome.

The best ship on NCL

Jun 28th, 2019

Great fjord cruise that visited the most northerly land mass, regularly saw whales swimming at the side of the ship, 24hr daylight, Aldo in Henry's pub is a must, Norweigan still has the best drinks package, I counted 18 beers and at least 22 different wines available
