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

This was a nine night Baltic Capitals cruise ex Copenhagen and calling at Warnemunde, Tallin, St Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm - really lovely itinerary. We had very good weather pretty much the whole trip so we were exceedingly lucky ... 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

We chose this cruise, because of the cities we could visit, [ lot easier and cheaper than half a dozen city breaks!] We visited Copenhagen, Berlin, Tallin, Saint Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm. We took the ships organised tours at ... 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

All in all it was a great cruise on the Norwegian Star. We chose this cruise primarily because of the itinerary. This cruise is a heavy itinerary with stops in 5 countries. We had previously sailed the Norwegian Star 4 years ago to ... 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

Ship review: Room very comfortable (just the 2 of us) and had a balcony-a must. Service always good. Easy access to food at all hours-sometimes hectic in the cafeteria buffet, but fast, and if I don't have to cook it, I can be chill and ... Read more

We wanted to see the Scandinavian/ Baltic cities and this was the easiest way to do it. We were traveling with adult sons, so they were interested in the ports more than the cruise itself. We've sailed with Royal Caribbean several ... Read more

We did the 9 day Baltic Capital cruise, it was excellent. The places we visited and the people we met on the cruise ship made this a wonderful experience. The ship and NCL not so much. My very biggest compliant was that the Spinnaker ... Read more

I chose this cruise for the ports of call. We loved all of them except Helsinki and feel that could have been skipped with more time spent in St. Petersburg or Stockholm. The day prior to the cruise we arrived in Copenhagen and explored, ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the ports and the July sailing. It was a wonderful cruise and we were very pleased with NCL, not having ever sailed with them. Have been on three Princess cruises prior. We loved Copenhagen and the people ... Read more

This was my first cruise so will perhaps mostly be of use to those who have not cruised before. First the company, NCL, Norwegian Cruise Lines. My impression of certain level of corporate sloppiness. On the website, and emails, some ... Read more

This was our third cruise with Norwegian and again we enjoyed ourselves. The embarkation and disembarkation went very smoothly, this could be because we had priority due to booking a suite. We were on and off the ship in about 15 minutes. ... Read more
