Not going on Norwegian again

Sail Date: September 2012
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Copenhagen

Where to start? NOTHING IS NORWEGIAN!!!!! They shouldn't be allowed to use the name.

The purser knew nothing to help us with the money needs in the many ports we visited. The announcers spoke so poor English we couldn't understand them (not Norwegian. In fact a Norwegian passenger said "why do they translate to every language except Norwegian?").

Super rude waiter; waiting beyond the start of the show after leaving 2 hours to eat.

Very nice steward.

Bad food. On chocolate night we tried about 10-15 small amounts of different "treats". We only liked 2 of them.

Arrogant captain and other superiors.

We couldn't use the library to play Scrabble because a group had evidently paid to reserve the whole room for making doll-houses. We moved to the ballroom and they turned out the lights and started a movie while we played. Less

The rain didn't help. The wharf area was just high-priced shops.

Enjoyed sightseeing. Travel agent chose great hotel. Near train. Super city.


Weather didn't cooperate, but the drivers again were persistent and didn't offer much for the money. I was disappointed.

We really enjoyed seeing this town. We took the hop-on-hop-off bus. There wasn't enough time to see much. The weather was awesome. Scenery terrific. Exchanging money in every port was difficult for us so we didn't buy as much as we would have liked. The Norwegian Sun didn't help one bit with money needed in each of the many ports.

A local would not speak with us. We assumed he had something against Americans. Other locals were unfriendly as well.

The Norwegian Sun should have offered rides to town. We only had 4 hours and most of that was in getting to town. A beautiful place. Great weather. Money exchange a problem. The hop-on-hop-off bus had headphones, but didn't work. Very bouncy. Not enough time to get off of it. Would like to go back and stay a few days at least.


We really enjoyed see the town and the Halgrimschurch.


The drivers fight over who is going to get your business. Ours was surly and greedy. Did not see much. Things were closed on Sunday.
