Our 14 day cruise of Norway was very good, but not great, our 5th NCL cruise. We still prefer a couple of other cruise lines. Embarkation in Copenhagen was quick, less than 20 minutes, and debarking went smoothly with no delays. The ... Read more

A neighbor arranged the cruise and invited others to join. First, let me say that cruising is not my first choice of vacation. I would rather spend more time in one location and decide what to do on our own. However, as this cruise went ... Read more

Avoid the shore excursions and internet package. Overpriced and the excursions were badly organised. They simply brush complaints off and do not care. The cruise itself was fine - the buffet is horrible and some of the staff especially the ... Read more
