We chose this cruise based on the itinerary and it definitely did not disappoint! As for the ship, hands down one of the greatest crews we have encountered. From our always smiling room steward all the way to the Captain of the ship ... Read more

We choose this cruise based on the itinerary and because the NCL has thermal spa packages available. We had a mid level inside cabin. Our room stewardess was very good. DINING: we enjoyed the dining, with the exception of the coffee. ... Read more

Awful ship. Cabins are extremely small and worn out. Mold growing in shower and could not turn around in incredible small bathroom. Room steward never cleaned the room. Started dirty and stayed that way. Food is the worse I've ever ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the port stops it would be making, we wanted to see Norway, but not exclusively, and my husband really wanted to go to Iceland too. I had read some awful reviews about the Norwegian Star, terrible ... Read more

I chose this cruise because a group was going from my community and I wanted to see Norway, Iceland and the other ports. We signed up for a tour of Copenhagen at the start of the trip. However, our guide did not show up and although the ... Read more

Cruise was taken on the recommendation of the travel agent. He said it wasn't in Fred Olsen or P&O class - at least he got that one right. It was terrible!! We arrived at Copenhagen and had to wait more than 2 hours for other flights. ... Read more

My husband and I decided we would fly to Europe and do a big cruise to see as much a possible since it would likely be the only time. Our holiday actually started on Aug 12 where we flew to London for a few days then to Budapest where ... Read more

We embarked in Copenhagen with no trouble at all everything went smoothly, the staff were friendly and helpful, the ship was lovely and clean but a bit of updating is needed here and there. The Aqua Restaurant needed a fair bit doing to ... Read more

The ship looks tired. It needs a redo. The Garden Cafe looks like a factory cafeteria - no decor whatsoever. The crew is wonderful - every one of them a friendly face, eager to help, from the wait staff in the restaurants to the guy in ... Read more

Having wanted to see the art of St. Petersburg for years, I jumped at the chance when this cruise went on sale. This was an early 50th anniversary cruise, and it was great. The weather was unusually warm, sunny, and gorgeous. We love ... Read more

LOVED this Baltic voyage. This was my 27th cruise. My husband's 8th. We were just thrilled to leave our busy world and be pampered: We don't have to cook, clean, shop or do laundry. And we get to see some interesting places. All on ... Read more

NCL is now into making you pay for everything. They nickel and dime you to death. The right hand side of the regular restaurant menu has prices on it if you want to order things like lobster. No more free lobster on any night. Your ... Read more

We went on this cruise with friends who suggested a Baltic Cruise. We had never been in the area and it sounded like a great idea. They suggested,Norwegian Cruise Line because they,had been on the line in the past. We like smaller, 6 star ... Read more

My husband and I were celebrating our Birthdays and loved this itinerary. We knew how expensive these ports in the Baltic would be, so we decided to save some money and booked an inside cabin. We had sailed on this ship before, on deck 4 ... Read more

We had first cruised on Norwegian in Feb. 2016 on a Caribbean cruise. We had a suite on the Dawn,which was great and that probably affected our decision to join this cruise on her sister ship. There could not have been a bigger ... Read more

We had a great trip on the Norwegian Star to the Baltic Capitals. Visited 6 countries in 9 days and the experience couldn't have been better. The ship is large but not mega big so very few times did we feel like it was crowded. There ... Read more

Nothing particular is "wrong" with this cruise ad Norwegian. But nothing is outstanding either. Unless we plan another cruise to Hawaii on the Pride of America, this is our third and likely last Norwegian cruise. The first ... Read more

Cruise was chosen by the travel agency, about $3200 for two people. We had a 5th floor window cabin, chosen by us ostensibly because we expected the weather to be cold, drizzly and wet as usual in the Baltic ports. Instead we brought ... Read more

Booked thru Diamond Resorts Intl, due to special deals they offer with NCL. Embark & disembark went smoothly and quickly. This ship is 15 years old, but seemed well maintained. Our stateroom with a balcony was not very well laid ... Read more
