General: This was our 7th NCL cruise since 2003, but first on this class of ship. We were sailing for the ports so this older ship was a pleasant surprise. The public spaces were clean and looked new, probably due to the refurbishment ... Read more

First time on Norwegian but 10th cruise. Found no comfortable lounge areas on ship. Most areas had chairs that remind you of sitting at someone's kitchen table. There were window seats looking over the sea but not comfortable chairs; ... Read more

We are now a "Gold" passenger with Norwegian, which used to mean something. We found the ship is in need of a lot or repair, the meals were average with not as many categories of choices, service in several of the smaller ... Read more

Copenhagen/embarkation: this was the first time we booked an airport transfer, and it was a positive experience with NCL. Our travel agent overcharged us badly, compared with the price of NCL, but NCL said they couldn’t do anything ... Read more

Just got back from the Baltic on the NCL Star. Our first impression is that the ship is much older and dated then others we have been on. The Stardust theater really needs an update. The food was not up to par and was hit and miss with ... Read more

I am normally a DIY-type of traveler, but this time I chose a cruise as part of my vacation. It was not the onboard activities that interested me, it was the itinerary: Copenhagen, Denmark; Warnemunde, Germany (with a day trip to Berlin); ... Read more
