What a wonderful start to our trip of a lifetime. After a good nights sleep and quick breakfast. Oh, okay – breakfast – we had coffee and croissants at the hotel – our shuttle to the cruise terminal was set up for 10 am. The bill came for our breakfast and it was 103.00 Euros! Oh, so sorry made a mistake – it should be 13.00 Euros! Just a small warning to look at the receipts before signing the credit card receipts.
Joe, myself, Dorothy and Stacy did the transfer from Rome to the port together. The cost was 200.00 Euros for a private van with our 8 pieces of luggage. It was a beautiful ride and we arrived at the terminal at 11:30 am.
Of all of the cruises I’ve been on this was one was the easiest boarding process. When you arrive at the terminal your given a number and once they call your number, you proceed to check in and onto the ship. It was less than an hour from arrival to sitting on the deck and enjoying the sunshine and the company.
On our first evening aboard ship, we all enjoyed Teppanyaki – the Hibachi Restaurant on NCL Spirit. We had a lot of fun and a lot of laughs and celebrated Stacy’s birthday
After dinner, we all went up to the Galaxy Lounge – had lots of fun, some drinking and dancing
End of day 1 aboard the NCL Spirit – off to bed to rest up for the remainder of our trip!
