Excellent experience. Ship was fully staffed. Never had to wait for a drink at the bars. Public areas kept tidy and clean. Made reservations in advance for the shows and select dining. Found we did not need reservations in two of the main rooms. Taste and Savor, we were walk right up and get a table with little wait. Heard it can be hard to find quiet spots on board. The sunset lounge was our favorite bar, located in the middle of the ship on the inside. Never too crowded or boisterous. Take the time and spend the money to see the cirque dreams steam punk dinner show. Very good production for a ship. The best shipboard entertainment I have ever seen. Burn the floor is good too. Just make your reservations before setting sail! Syd Norman’s Pour House had excellent rock cover band. Very entertaining there. For shot excursions, be sure to explore non ship options. We booked privately with Alla Tours for both St. Petersburg and Stockholm. We saved a ton of money compared to the excursions (relatively identitcal itineraries) by booking with Alla. Do it about 3 months in advance, They take care of your Visas for Russia, no worries! Read Less

We chose this cruise for the ports. The Baltic ports were great. Unfortunately, this ship is poorly designed and way understaffed. And the staff, although friendly, was unable to do much if it wasn’t in their guidelines. No extra towels, etc. there was ALWAYS a 45 min line for customer service desk. Day and night. The specialty Restaurants only open at night and they are hard to book. The other food was about quantity not quality. Staffed gave us wrong information about free meal packages. The Poorly designed ship filters everything into the very loud and crowded atrium. They wouldn’t help off load luggage or book a taxi because we left too early. Good grief. On a positive note, they have a Starbucks where you can buy good coffee. Bottom line, They nickel and dime you for everything. The internet, free drink packages and dinners - that you pay a 20% charge for tips- aren’t free. Think those go to the staff? We could have gone on a luxury small ship and had excellent attentive service for what we paid. Read Less

To be clear, we chose Norwegian because of the port stops and because the timing of this cruise allowed us to take it with another family. Overall, we had a great time with our friends, liked the port stops (except Russia), but the Norwegian part of the experience was disappointing. In the past, we have cruised with Disney (2), Princess (1), and Carnival (1). Liked... 1. The ports and excursions were generally good, but expensive. 2. Bar services were very good (few lines, good drinks). Sugarcane Mojito Bar was excellent. 3. The few on-board entertainment / shows were very good (Burn the Floor and Cirque Dreams & Steam, Sid Norman’s nightly rock entertainment). 4. Food was good, but best food was at restaurants where an extra cover charge was paid ($30+ per person). 5. Laundry service ($20 per bag) was a great service to offer. 6. My son enjoyed the 13-17 kids club. Activities were plenty and well-structured. Did not like… 1. The ship was not ‘full’ (we were told) but it felt crowded everywhere we went, especially on at-sea days. We found it difficult to find seats in the lounges & common areas; seating at the Garden Grill / buffet was terrible; lines at guest services were almost always 20-30 people deep; had to wait for an elliptical machine in the fitness area; waited 20 minutes in the internet café and walked away; no-cover restaurants had a wait unless you had reservations. 2. Did not like the "Free Style" dining option. They advertised 5-10 minute waits but, in reality, it was 30-45 minutes. If you did not make a reservation at least the day before, you will wait. 3. The pre-booking process did not support groups. We were not allowed to book an 18 & 14 year old in a room together. We could not link our reservation with that of our friends. Room or balconies do not connect. This created a lot of inconvenience when it came to booking things as a family or with our friends. 4. Lack of entertainment options and general poor timing of the entertainment. There was maybe one option for entertainment in the evening. No nightly movies available anywhere on the ship. Most entertainment options were something you had to pay for, or were geared towards selling you something. We were absolutely bored in the mornings and afternoons. 5. St. Petersburg Russia stop was a missed opportunity. If you did not book an expensive excursion with the Cruise Line, and you did not have a special Visa, you could not spend time at the port. The Visa issue was NOT communicated during booking and in all of the conversations my wife had with the agent. Read Less
