This was the worst cruise that we have ever been on. All meals were mostly inedible. Everything reagardless of breakfast lunch or dinner was like cafeteria food. We tried all the "free" dining. Our best meals we had were off ... 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

Is all the staff outsourced? After our 20 hour traveling to Copenhagen to board the ship we found our stateroom dirty and disgusting. Calling the Stuart who came with the person responsible for cleaning the room I pointed out the obvious ... Read more

Does not compare to the 138,000 +/- gross ton ships out there. For the most part pretty well maintained but a little boring. The excitement was visiting the Baltic! Food average overall, and many items were pretty good, but a lot of ... 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

We specifically asked for confirmation that our flight was 'direct' to Copenhagen, however this was later changed to 'via Frankfurt', which meant setting off at 2am to travel through the night. On arrival at Manchester Airport we were told ... Read more
