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

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
