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

Just returned from the Baltic Capitals cruse on the NCL Star. We booked this cruise for the cities it visited, not necessarily for the ship or cruise amenities. We are a couple in our 40's, traveling on this cruise without our kids, and ... Read more

Captain Matias was amazing! His personalized greetings every day was a very nice touch. Overall staff was excellent. Food was mediocre, not what we are used to from NCL. We had the drink package which is supposed to include all you ... Read more

It was a mother daughter trip to the Baltic Sea! What a great experience! We arrived in Copenhagen two days before embarkation day. It is time enough to experience the city, sight seeing, museums, bars and restaurants. The port is 20-30 ... Read more

This was my very first cruise and I enjoyed it very much. I had just been sick with an MS relapse just 2 days before I left home & I was not physically well on the cruise most of the time unfortunately. I only made it out of the ship ... Read more

First, i have been on several cruises with Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and one previous cruise with Norwegian. I didn't like the previous Norwegian ship, and it was not my choice to do this cruise on Norwegian, but I was pleasantly ... Read more

Ship in general seemed to be a "faded lady" and for the most part was the experience. Embarking and disembarking was a better experience than embarking a plane or train. It went fairly smoothly. The embarking photos could have ... Read more

I had a great experience. I cannot complain about the service or the amazing crew. However, I feel that this cruise did not target my age group. Ok... If you are 100 years old and you like bingo, this is for you! Or if you are ... Read more

The face to face personal service with the NCL crew was first class during my 9 day Baltic cruise this July 15. This was my second visit with the Star I'd already undertook the same cruise in 2013. The overall atmosphere on-board was ... Read more

When a 14 yr. old boy wants to travel with his grandmother, you seize the moment. Right up front, though, I have to confess that I do not like cruise ships. Yes, I have been on boats like French canal barges and small ships on the ... Read more

The Baltics and the fine weather we encountered kept this cruise as a very good rating. However the Star customer service was average. The staff wore "Vacation Hero" pins. The one true Hero was our cabin steward "Ashok ... Read more

We had a very nice time on our Baltic cruise. We were 2 couples, with one person in a wheelchair. Getting around on the ship was easy, with the elevators always available. Getting on the ship in Copenhagen was quick, probably because we ... Read more

NCL Star is not one of the elite classes of cruise ships. It lacks charm and charisma. The Star appears to be out-of-date in some locations throughout the ship. The seats in the Stardust Theatre are in bad shape you feel as you are ... Read more

We planned this 7 day cruise to Norway about 8 months ago and were happy to be going on Norwegian after a great trip to Alaska with them. This cruise was in the middle of a 3 week Europe trip for us. The ship itself was fine, but it's ... Read more

Air travel to Copenhagen was great with SAS and boarding was uneventful. We found out near the end of our cruise that over 30% of the crew was already reporting symptoms of respiratory flu when we boarded in Copenhagen. The 9-day Baltic ... Read more

This is my fourth time cruising with NCL only because of their freestyle cruising which allows me to be more relaxed and do what I want to do when I want it, after all I'm on vacation. Overall, it's been a great experience, the food is ... Read more

This was our fifth cruise with Norwegian. We were on the Epic, Pearl, Getaway, Sun, and now the Star. Even though this is an older ship we enjoyed the fact that activities were centralized on the 7th deck and easy to locate. The Cruise ... Read more

Wonderful experience -- with some exceptions!! Dining in the Versailles was NOT a good experience. Stuffy decor, inept waitstaff the first day, first meal was a most unpleasant start. Aqua was a wonderful venue, relaxed, not ... Read more
