  1. One of my favorite things about the spirit is sitting on the back at raffles and looking aft. Hate to think of the view being blocked by a giant screen. Glad we we get to experience the ship one more time before changes and yet also glad to hear they’re trying to make improvements as well.
  2. Great video, I subbed to your channel. Really enjoyed the SS United States video you made as well.
  3. Which winery did you go to? I took a semi private tour with a small group that took us all over the island and final stop was at Santo Winery, where we hung out in the late afternoon and enjoyed the absolutely spectacular view. I've dreamed of going back ever since and booked another trip to go back in November. Wonder if you were at the same place or another?
  4. Sorry to bump such an old topic but I booked this room for a sailing in late fall and was curious if you were correct that it was quieter with only sharing the one wall with another stateroom? Were you happy with your stateroom choice?
  5. Spirit, even when I read the reviews beforehand that the ship was dated and had some issues, was my absolute favorite. I'm seriously contemplating booking her again soon because I'm worried there's a good chance she won't be around much longer for NCL.
  6. For Dubrovnik we got off the ship and negotiated a round trip price with some drivers right at the port. I don’t remember the cost but it was really cheap. They took us to the pile gate and drove us back about 30 min before the debark time.
  7. Is Jefferson still playing guitar in Henry’s Pub at night? He was great, remembered all the regulars names each night and played songs for them.
  8. Great pics thanks! I actually walked a bit different path to the restaurant, seeing the one you sent is a nice walk, and probably a bit more adventurous. There's a staircase in the area in front of pile gate that leads down to a back alley that takes you to the same area where they rent kayaks. I'm not sure if this link will work, but its a neat 360 degree picture on google maps that looks up the alleyway, and also down towards the water and restaurant, the fortress, etc, with some pretty stormy looking seas. https://www.google.com/maps/@42.6415894,18.1052546,3a,75y,4.34h,100.53t/data=!3m8!1e1!3m6!1sAF1QipN8rjNBDd4IqeuLGqRbLBBzMTUuczbpmtEX5LlH!2e10!3e11!6shttps:%2F%2Flh5.googleusercontent.com%2Fp%2FAF1QipN8rjNBDd4IqeuLGqRbLBBzMTUuczbpmtEX5LlH%3Dw203-h100-k-no-pi-0-ya174.87-ro-0-fo100!7i8704!8i4352 Looking forward to more updates in this thread, keep them coming!
  9. From earlier in your review, this picture of Dubrovnik - we ate at the restaurant that is marked with the arrow. It was right on the way towards the fortress. Restaurant Orhan, a family owned and operated place. The food was great, service was very nice as well, view was AMAZING. My wife raved about how amazing the sauce was in the mussels she ordered. We spoke to the waiter about his acting role in Game of Thrones. I'm really enjoying your review and pictures. Its really bringing great memories back and I wish to be on the Spirit again!
  10. Love this ship. My wife and I cruised from Venice to Barcelona in April 2017. Best trip ever.
