This was my very first cruise!! I absolutely loved it. I went on the Breakaway for a 9 day Scandinavian cruise. From start to finish it was fantastic. The food, entertainment, activities and my cabin was everything I expected it would be. The shore excursions were excellent. They were very well organized. I was a solo traveler on this trip and I couldnt have been happier. Every night in the solo traveler lounge, I met up with other solo's and went out to dinner, and then went out afterwards to listen to live music. The entertainment staff was outstanding. I ended up going to 2 of the shows, Rock of Ages and Cirque Dreans. Both of these shows were fantastic. The food was above and beyond what I was expecting. I ended up going to a couple of the specialty restaurants as well. OUTSTANDING!!! I would highly recommend Norwegian to anyone. I can't wait for my next trip Read Less

I went on this cruise as a Solo Travler. I loved the Solo Lounge, amazing experience. The entire staff on this ship is second to none, polite, confident and always willling to help you. The Entertaininment was amazing. the food, WOW.....Amazing. The Garden Buffett was awesome and the spaecialty dinning was fantastic. I had a 4 Meal speciality dinning package and it was great. As for Embarkment and Disembarkment, went smooth as can be. The Cruise Director Siles was constantly giving updates on the progress of what was occurring during the Disembarkemnet, what a consummate professional, great job. This was my second cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines and as far as I am concerned they have earned my business for future cruise. I cannot wait until my next adventure on NCL. I am thinking April 2018 Norwegian Pearl 21-Day, Panama Canal. I also am thinking of doing a cruise on the Bliss with my Adult Daughter and Grandaughter. Read Less

Started in Copenhagen, was a nice but expensive city. Walked around and went to a couple of museums. Got on the Getaway in Copenhagen, embarkation was good, a little wait in line to get my key card. We were some of the first people on the ship because we were paying attention to the announcements. Went to O' Sheehan's for lunch (Bacon cheese burger and fries, great!) and then we book our specialty dining options. To get good times book your dining option early. The ship went to Warnemunde, Tallinn, St Petersburg and Stockholms. We dined at Cagney's. GREAT filet mignons, so tender you could use your fork to cut them. Then we ate at Monderno's Brazilian-style steakhouse, great food again and great service. We also ate at Teppanyaki and the food and entertainment was fabulous!! And after we went to Howling at the Moon, I would strongly suggest going if you like music!! And if you like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Johnny Cash see Million Dollar Quartet. This was my fourth time seeing it and if I can I will see it again. It was a little cold in September so either book earlier or dress warm. Happy cruising to you!! Read Less

I have just returned from a 9 day Baltic cruise on the Norwegian Getaway and have enjoyed it immensely. It was my first cruise and it surprised me for good. It has modern facilities, spacious rooms, restaurants with quality food and very varied. There are entertainment almost every hour so you will never be bored. Speaking to other people who had already done more cruising, the Getaway was the most luxurious ship they have ever been to and with its Freestyle policy you have all the freedom you want to eat or dine whenever you feel like it. We carried our own luggage for disembarkation and it took us just 5 minutes to went out of the ship. It is a very tired cruise because you visit 6 countries in 9 days but we have enjoyed it a lot. If I do another cruise I will repeat with NCL without doubt.. Read Less

After a few disappointing trips with Costa Cruise Lines happy to be back aboard the Norwegian again. The ship did not shake at all during the trip trough the Baltic Sea. The staf is so friendly and helpful. Nothing seems to be to much for them. The meals are good, the bars serve all kinds of non-alcoholic cocktails when asked and you keep on feeling special and welcome. The entertainment is of Broadway's quality. Cruised with Costa and no one could sing. Here everybody could. Lots of different venues to choose from as well for dining as for entertainment. The embarkation went wrong only once when everybody wanted to board at once, then there were long lines and we sailed half a hour later as planned. The thing I was worried about the most was the entrance to Russia but this went very smooth as well. No problems whatsoever. I would definitely recommend this cruise. Read Less

We took the Getaway twice in 2016 on a western Caribbean itinerary and loved it both times. Out of Miami on a 7 day you have 4 full port days which most ships only have 3 on a 7 day from S Fla. When it moved to the Baltic in May, we couldn't pass it up especially at last minute prices. On a 9 day itinerary, it had 6 full port days including overnight in St. Pete. We scored an upgrade to Haven with a minimum bid, Now we are forever spoiled. Obviously the Haven rooms and bedding are so much plusher. But it's also the attention of the Haven staff that makes you feel like you are on your own private charter. Express boarding and disembarkation at all ports. Private dining room and bar. In room bar set-up comes with certain suites (although I think the cheap liquor that is complimentary is not in keeping with the Haven standards, we paid $40 to upgrade some bottles). While I wish it had been warmer while sailing the temperatures were ideal for sightseeing. Unlike the Breakaway, the Haven courtyard on the GA does not have a retractable roof since it was made for Miami. You can find fault with any cruise or cruise line but overall we had a great experience and would definitely recommend the GA. The dining was excellent in the haven and spec restaurants and 1 night we ate in Tropicana which is one of the MDR and it was also very good. We love Maragritaville at lunch for modest upcharges. The new Circus show was excellent as was MDQ. Howl at the Moon is always entertaining. My only complaint is the UBP wine options. Even in the Haven, we were subjected to wines that were no more than $8-12 in the grocery store. There were no by the glass upgrade options except in Blue where Louis Latour Pouilly-Fuisse was available at an upcharge of $1.25/glass. We wound up buying some better bottles that were discounted since we had the UBP. The hydro pool and spa area are an everyday favorite. It was too cold for H2O deck parties, but they were the best in Caribbean. Andres the new CD is energetic and omnipresent. Lastly Benny and Juana the butler and cabin attendant are the best as is Miss Ria the Haven restaurant hostess. Hanno the haven concierge apart from being the tallest crew member was always helpful and informative. Read Less

I have never experienced a Baltic cruise before having and I was really looking forward to it. As our flight arrived early afternoon and with the airport transfer I didn't have time to experience Copenhagen. Embarkation was quick and I was soon on Serenade and went straight to my Cabin 4045 to drop of my carry on stuff. I soon met my Cabin Steward Nick Campbell such a nice guy. As i normally do I had a couple of glasses of wine and it was soon time for the muster drill. Serenade may be getting on in years but I felt she was in good shape, well maintained and cleaned. I met many lovely people on board and Mario in the concierge lounge was very kind and helpful thanks Mario. Dining was enjoyable in the main dining and I have to say the Windjammer. I especially enjoyed the three lunches we had in the main dining room with the Tutti salad bar. I did experience some entertainment which was really good as always the 70's night disco. Singers and bands in the atrium were also good. The service across the ship was really good as always thanks guys. As I said before I met some wonderful people and enjoyed their company and we shared some lovely experiences of our ports of calls For me the trip to St Petersburg was my favourite. I did a half morning tour and our guide Maria had such a passion for her city. As we only had the one day I felt that this was the best way of me to see as much as possible. My only wish was that we had an overnight stop there so I could see more of this wonderful city. I would not hesitate to go back on Serenade and this itinerary again Read Less

Great itinerary! We loved the ship but most of all the ports were great! The food was fantastic. The steakhouse is the best we have ever had!!!! Amazing food and service. Our main table in Symphony was also great. Mariana was a fantastic server! She was so attentive, nice and efficient! The ship is very nice. It has a nice adult pool are and another nice pool for kids. Not too much to do for older teens who are not 18. I would have liked to see more live music later at night. It usually stopped around 11-ish The shows were very good. Even though the ship is very big, the layout is great and it was easy to get around . Nice walking deck. Nice gym too, Just the right number of sea days. The only thing I would change is more time in Stockholm, Sweden. We had perfect weather. Each post was fantastic. 1. Copenhagen- went a day early and it was great. Don't miss Tivoli Gardens. Go to the main marina and take a great canal tour. 2. Oslo, Norway - Amazing Vigeland sculpture park. You can do the hop on hop off bus. Great Cafes and beautiful walking areas 3. Berlin- We hired a Brewer's Berlin Tours. Jonathan was a fantastic tour guide. The bus was extremely comfortable and spacious. Went to incredible places and Jonathan was very knowledgeable! 4.Estonia- we took a taxi to the old city. Walked around and had lunch. 5. St Petersberg Russia- We hired Peter's Walk. They arranged the visas. They picked us up in a nice bus and had great 2 day tour. You can customize the tour based on your preference. Do not miss going to Ginza Restaurant in St Petersberg. Amazing food and view. Loved the canal rides. 6. Helsinki Finland- Wend to the outdoor market by taxi and then took a boat ride to a beautiful island 7. Stockholm Sweden- AMAZING bike ride with Stephan at Sweden Bikes. If you like bike riding do not miss it. Great way to see the city and country in a short time. Great bikes, very responsible, informative and so nice! We were also able to see the famous and beautiful Stockholm Synagogue. This day was the highlight of our trip. Read Less

Chose this cruise line because of the ports (7 in all) we would visit. Not disappointed. Best cruise I have taken thus far. Whatever good you have heard about Princess is true. Best dining ever including the main dining rooms, good size cabin, excellent staff and especially the cruise director and her team. Even the Horizon Court and Horizon Bistro (buffets) were excellent. Enough seating, wait staff brings you your juice, water, and coffee to the table, tons and I means tons of activities and entertainment to chose from. There were all ages on this ship ranging from families with young children, teenagers, young adults, couples of all ages, and seniors. Lots of wonderful families from Australia. Cannot say enough good things about this vacation. The Sanctuary, which is extra - $20. for a half day) was well worth it on one of our sea days. They deliver free food to your lounge chair as well as come around with scones,etc during the regularly scheduled tea time (3:30 pm). Very quiet area for reading, relaxation, and just looking out at the sea. There are also other areas on the ship on decks 16-17 that offer quiet areas for lounging weather permitting. Gave this ship and itinerary 10/10. Read Less

I wanted to visit the Baltic capitals and Saint Petersburg. This cruise visits Copenhagen, Berlin (with a 3-hour drive), Tallinn, St. Petersburg (2 days), Helsinki, and Stockholm with the comfort of a cruise. I travel alone and for solo travelers, NCL is the cruise line to go. NCL dropped the solo markup on a cabin for the Star cruise that week, so it was a deal I could not pass. This cruise was, by far, the best solo cruise I have enjoyed so far. The Star is a 15 year old ship built when NCL paid more attention to the comfort and pleasure of its cruisers, unlike its newer ships, like the escape, which is a behemoth designed to maximize profits at the expense of passenger well-being and comfort. The Star is beautifully decorated with art on all its staircases, and walls, a tastefully arranged atrium which spans several decks. Deck 7 has an outside balcony that goes all around the ship (blocked view at the forward side only). It is very well decorated all around and its cabins are spacious enough to be actual cabins, as compared to the NCL Escape where the inside cabin I had is better described as a closet. Even though the Star was built before NCL started including solo cabins on its ships, NCL organizes a solo meeting every evening to allow solo travelers to meet, get to know each other, and plan activities together. The folks I met on the Star where eclectic and diverse and a lot of fun to be with. They were wonderful cruise companions and I greatly enjoyed all the activities on board and in the various ports of call. As an example, 4 of us, decided to rent a car and drive to Berlin together rather that book the exorbitant tour offered by the cruise and be herded without any control over timing and places to visit. In spite of crazy Debi :-) who drove like at German at 120 miles an hour on the Autobahn, the trip was a blast. The entertainment was top notch and high quality every night of the cruise. The cruisers were more diverse with more Latinos, Asians, french and other Europeans than you typically find on Caribbean cruises. However, the karaoke song choices did not reflect this diversity, which indicates that NCL still has some progress to do with its international cruises. Its karaoke song choices are still largely US country, which makes me suspect that the person in charge of karaoke fro NCL is a redneck from Nashville :-). The food is average in the included restaurants, following NCL's trend to move away from the "all inclusive" nature of cruising and push their a-la-carte, pay extra restaurants that seem to become more and more numerous. I suspect that, in a few years, NCL will be offering only water and cold sandwiches on its cruises, and will charge for coffee and warm foods. The weather, a bit colder that the Caribbean in May, was nonetheless wonderful for us. In a region that has only 60 days of sunshine a year, the weather gods grated us 8 out of 9 days of sun. Anyway, as far as cruising goes, I highly recommend this particular cruise to all and especially to solo travelers. May you have as must fun as I did. Read Less

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); Tallinn, Estonia; St. Petersburg, Russia; Helsinki, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden and back to Copenhagen. I was not disappointed. Each city was very interesting to tour. Using the ship, the Norwegian Star, as a floating hotel and restaurant worked out well. My stateroom/cabin (#5022) was quiet and comfortable and the food and service were great! There wasn't enough time in most ports, but that was a given. All in all, I would recommend this cruise to those who want to sample the Baltic. For the most part, it was easy and efficient getting on and off the ship (St. Petersburg being the exception with all the Russian red tape). I chose TJ Travel for land excursions in Berlin and St. Petersburg. Both were excellent. I also used Rick Steves', "Northern European Cruise Ports," for information on each destination. Also excellent and very helpful. I did not use any of NCL's excursions. I thought they were overpriced. I used Trip Advisor's reviews to find TJ Travel. I had the "Ultimate Dining Package" and enjoyed trying each of the specialty restaurants. All were very good, but I did like Cagney's Steak House the best. The meals in the main dining rooms, Aqua and Versailles, were also very good. Love "freestyle" cruising. I prefer casual to formal and this cruise fit my style. I also was able to travel very light (one small suitcase and a tote). Read Less

It was my first time cruising alone, and my first time with NCL. I was a little nervous about the ship, having read reports of a 'tired' and 'needing TLC' Star, and also about the Free Style dining, having previously, on other cruises being allocated a table and dinner companions. All my fears were completely unfounded. The Star is a magnificent ship, gracious, spacious and easily navigated! The Free Style dining is a wonderful innovation and should be adopted by other cruise lines. I was always asked if I'd like to share a table and found myself with many diverse dinner companions, which was wonderful. I dined in Versailles each evening and the food was great, always served with a smile. In the buffet, being on my own never bothered me, as it was always very easy to find space for 1. The ports of call were wonderful. I had tours booked in most and all lived up to and beyond my expectations. To any of my Cruise Critic friends who may be reading this review, "Thank You for making my holiday memorable".   Read Less

I recently cruised on the Norwegian Star with a girlfriend and we needed separate spaces. We were booked in the best suite of the Star with angled floor to ceiling windows that allowed us a view of the captain's bridge and a panorama of the Baltic Sea. The suite had a huge bathroom with double sinks. It was more cost effective for us to have a suite than buying two separate staterooms. We had a butler who brought us sandwiches and chocolate covered strawberries in the afternoon and wine anytime we wanted. We had a multi-lingual, very personable concierge who helped us with priority disembarkations. Our room could be divided with a pocket wall and lots of curtains (which were a bit too abundant) so we could each have our own space. The suite was so luxurious that we didn't participate in onboard activities other than lectures on amber and Faberge in preparation for our tour of St. Petersburg. We did not book excursions through the cruise line either but chose to book our own tour of St. Petersburg and book the Hop On Hop Off buses in other ports. The ship's restaurants were very good, except for the buffet, which was only suitable for a light lunch, in our opinion. Because the Star has "Freestyle Cruising," the specialty restaurants, each with a cover charge, were excellent but the cover charge did add up. After ten days aboard ship, I still could not decipher port from starboard, as each side looked the same. We had a frustrating time navigating the ship because of poor signage. Also, we would ask directions, only to find we were stopped by closed doors, etc. and had to either go up or down a level to locate where we were going. The crew was friendly and efficient, but the passengers were rude, crowding onto the elevators and basically being glum and dour. What's that about?? The first port in Germany was very poor, although we opted not to travel to Berlin. The ATM was located in the casino and not usable while in port, so there was no way to obtain cash before disembarking unless one had used the ATM prior to docking. The onboard shops were tacky, the jewelry very common and over-priced. I would like to see higher quality "resort" wear. The "Russian Bazaar" had horribly overpriced, cheap and tacky gifts but the authentic stacking dolls and lacquer boxes were lovely. The amber was overpriced and had poor settings, thus was not purchased. All in all, however, an excellent experience. Read Less

Let me first start out by saying that I have been on three cruises with HAL, and this one was probably my favorite or tied with Alaska! The ship is absolutley gorgeous, with lots to do, very well maintained, with very friendly staff all around. Our room stewards, were excellent, always making sure that anything we needed was already in place before we even asked for it Dining was very good in the Rembrant Dining Room (not sure why it is not the Rotterdam dining room like the previous two crusies), all the food is excellently prepared, and does have style as well. I wanted to try the new Tamarind resturant, which is open for both lunch and dinner, but reservations book up quickly on it, so be sure to plan in advance on a sea day! We booked our tours through Saint Petersburg Tours, which was also very good in all the ports, and local guides that seemed to generally be interested in the subjects, and not just going through the motions! Entertainment there was so much to do, whether playing in the casino, or listening to Diane in the Piano Bar, or going to one of the many shows that went on every evening, from Jennie and the HAL Cats, to comedians, or other performances on the Mainstage, or if you just wanted to catch a movie, tons of options there as well. Would defiently recommend this cruise for anyone looking to see the Baltic! Read Less
