At times we wondered if this was their first time putting on a cruise. A total amateur effort. Memory dump follows. Start with the highlights: Cagney steaks and aerial act in theater. Drinks: We elected for the dining and drinks packages. Still had to endure nickel & diming upcharges. Their wine list by the glass is lacking good bubbles and full bodied reds; exactly what you need at a steak house. They had 3 prices for a glass of Veuve Cliquot champagne, depending who you asked. The drinks package adds a service charge of 20% and assumes $99/day worth of drinks each!!! Some bartenders were talented and generous, others need to be trained. Champagne Charlie's doesn't have anything to offer that's not found on other menus. The bartender said it was really a martini bar. Coffee packets in the room actually tasted (slightly) better than the coffee at Raffles. It would have been nice for the cabin steward to replenish them regularly. Food: With few exceptions, the food was bad to average. A few very good steaks at Cagney's. Le Bistro is not worth it. Main/Windows at time was terrible. Overall, it was like eating at Applebee's. We did not gain weight on this cruise because it just wasn't tempting. Every time you come near Raffles you hear "washy-washy" and they spray at you (yes, at you) with a disinfectant! I don't want that on my hands when I'm eating pastry in the morning. One employee got nasty with me for declining. Excursions: We missed our day in Grasse because they couldn't get us off the boat in time in Cannes. We were told it's their first time in Cannes. Embarkation security didn't have a problem with my water bottle. Disembarkation on the last day was total chaos. Most people didn't know what was going on. Just get on the NCL shuttle bus to train. Facilities: * Men's steam room out of order on the day I tried. * A pool jacuzzi was barely warm on the day we tried it. * Library closed early on day at sea. * Lots of boat motion because Spirit is small. * ATM only dispenses US dollars. Why would I need that in Europe? I needed eye drops due to the smoky air near some elevators (not just near casino). Medical office wanted $149 to see the Dr and get drops. Didn't bother to tell me the gift shop sells Visine (12Euro). Dr (or nurse?) was right there at the desk! We got our daily gratuities reimbursed and I personally tipped those who had earned it: cabin steward David and waiter Emilio at Cagney's. No washy-washy tip. This was only our third cruise so maybe we were spoiled on the Millennium. Is it NCL or just this tacky little boat? Read Less

We chose this cruise because of all the stops. It was a great experience! And the cruise staff make your stay super enjoyable! We loved our waiters in Windows, Dheeraj and René. Their service was excellent, they are great together! Definitely our “On board heros”. The time me and my husband spent dining at Windows was on of the highlights of our day, getting to eat good food, served by such nice and entertaining people, getting to talk about our amazing day was priceless. Also the Latin Fiesta Duo was great, super professional, friendly and amazing human beings! We got to meet a lot of very nice people! Including crew members and guests. Our favorite stop was Montenegro, amazing views, food and people! The scenery takes your breath away and there’s a lot to choose from. Also, we loved visiting all the different places in Italy: Firenze, Pisa, Messina, Napoli and Rome! Read Less

Maybe I'm being too harsh, but this cruise- the ship at least, was a huge disappointment. I started cruising in the 1980s, specifically on the grandest of the grand, the SS Norway. The NCL of then versus the NCL of now is truly night and day. First, the good. The room was great. We had a balcony on deck 10, and it was spacious, comfortable, and had a nice unobstructed view. The cruise director was delightful. Better than many. The service staff (cabin stewards, excursion folks, service desk) were great. Friendly and helpful. The shows were pretty good as well. The ports were great. So, what's to complain about, right? Well, the ship. The food. The lack of personal service. The way it used to be, when you went to dinner, it was an event- the highlight of your day. You sat at the same table, with the same people, every night. Same waiter, same assistant waiter, and your waiter only had 2-3 tables, so he knew you. After a few days, he understood what you liked, what you didn't like, and he helped you through the menu. The menu. When you went on a cruise, you used to get 5-8 courses of unbelievably delicious food. You really would gain weight on a cruse because you ate and ate wonderful, glorious food. Now- it's 3 courses of crap. Boring appetizers, bland main course, and mass produced frozen deserts. Terrible. And with no more assigned seating, you get different wait staff- who have 5-10 tables to take care of. Translation- you wait an wait and wait. I think NCL should be ashamed of themselves. Yes, I've cruised other "modern" cruises with their "premium" dining options. I know just about everyone has eliminated 5 course meal and the personal assigned wait staff. But this example was beyond unacceptable. It is especially sad because of my experience with the SS Norway. NCL knows how to do it right, they just won't. Terribly disappointing. Read Less
