We chose this cruise for the destinations, particularly St. Petersburg which didn't disappoint. We had 2 days there and did the 2 day deluxe tour with SPB tours and the evening tour which was really good, despite the rain! We paid for 3 x ... 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

I choose this cruise because I had such a wonderful time in 2013 on another Norwegian Mediterranean cruise and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised that this one was as good, if not better, than the previous one. I will say that ... Read more

We have only been on one cruise before and so our experience is limited. The itinerary was spot-on for what we wanted. We liked the informal style of NCL and the freestyle dining. It suited us well as we don't really like to have to dress ... Read more

Good points: ship was in very good condition, especially as it's 15 years old; it was very smooth but the sea was very calm; food was decent though rarely piping hot; quite a big ship so didn't feel too crowded; embarkation and ... Read more

Loved the itinerary of the Baltic. The sea was very smooth and all of the posts were enjoyable. We opted not to go to Berlin and had a great time exploring the local area of Germany on our own which included trains, buses and the beach. ... Read more

This was our first time on a cruise. We choose the ship as we wanted to visit the Baltics. This was our honeymoon and NCL gave us a complementary upgrade to the ultimate beverage package, which was brilliant as the cocktails were ... Read more

Not my favorite ship. The pros: bed was very comfy, shower was great, room was comfortable with plenty of space. Only one outlet in the room, another in bathroom. The bathroom was tight due to a wall seperating the toilet from the ... Read more

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

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

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

Hi All, I have been cruising since 2009 at least once or twice a year and all have been with Carnival until this year. We went with NCL since we chose a destination that Carnival does not sail. The itenarary was great and can't complain ... 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

We had a wonderful trip on the Norwegian Star to the Baltic capitals. We went for our honeymoon and everything was top notch. We have cruised before and found that this crowd of older adults and very few children was the best. Ports: ... Read more
