We chose this cruise as we had not been to any of the destinations it visited. The embarkation was chaos to say the least. We arrived at the cruise terminal at 12 noon but there was no ship. We were told there had been a problem and would ... Read more

First, It was very disappointing to find out before my cruise that the price of my cabin was lower that what I paid for more than 800 US dollars plus extras like the wine package. Customer service just gave me an upgrade to a cabin with ... Read more

Good cruise despite the engine problem. Would go again. My cabin was fine for one person. It was quiet, nothing worn out or broken. Steward did a good job of cleaning each morning. Dining at the specialty restaurants was ... Read more

I would avoid sailing on the NCL Star. The hotel director is terrible. He is rude to passengers and crew in public areas. The food was poor...uncooked eggs, buffet food was always cold and often there were no sugar free or gluten free ... Read more

Chose this cruise because it worked well for coordinating schedules. The itinerary was good: Really enjoyed each port. Would have liked more time in Helsinki and Stockholm, but got a decent overview of both cities. This was our first ... Read more

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

Went to the Baltics 2 years ago and loved it so wanted to go back. The NCL Star is a lovely ship . Couldn't fault it at all. We had an overnight stay in Copenhagen before embarkation. Copenhagen is a beautiful city and very easy to get ... Read more
