NORTHERN LIGHTS & ICEBERGS & FJORDS (and Covid)

Review for Star Pride to Arctic

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise for Iceland and Greenland. Plus Canada. We circumvented Iceland and saw some highlights however in hindsight we should have joined the pre land cruise to see blue lagoon and the loop road. The excursions were a long ride from the port and the ports were middle of no where….yes that’s Iceland. The weather typical for region. Rain, winds then sun! ***NORTHERN ...

Excellent cruise; interesting ports

We booked this cruise to use up a pre-pandemic credit from 2019. (Multiple intervening attempts failed.) We are grateful to Celebrity for the credit, for the extensions they granted to those of us with credits, and for getting back to sailing. We went to Reykjavik six days early. There is plenty to do in Iceland and a mere port stop or a day or day is insufficient. Everyone we met was ...

we choose this cruise because of our dear friends of 35 years. They had reserved this cruise several years ago and my DW and I thought we would rejoin our adventures with them. It was difficult to book a cabin 9 months out. Little did we know this itinerary was the inaugural cruise for Celebrity's to visit Greenland. Our last Inaugural cruise was the Infinity cruise to Antarctica in 2010! ...

My wife and I recently enjoyed a cruise on the Windstar’s Star Pride. We had traveled on board the Seabourn Pride many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Let me make something quite clear, I did not expect Seabourn’s standards of service and cuisine on board the Star Pride. (See footnote for an amusing bit of Seabourn history.) They are different cruise lines and work to ...

Very nice cruise in spite of bad weather.

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We choose this cruise because of the opportunity to visit Greenland for the first time and return to Iceland which we had seen on an NCL cruise 5 years ago but not on the Star but on the Gem. We were concerned that the ship was much smaller and older then the ships we typically travel but because of the ports we decided to book it. By the time of our cruise we were aware the last scheduled ...

Norther Europe (Greenland and Iceland) itinerary wrongly designed. We did not visited all scheduled ports

In 2019 a similar itinerary on the NCL Spirit was also not achieved. We did not visit Iceland. Then this time we decided to take a cruise from Iceland itself. Well, our first cruise after the pandemic and after two years planning, we took the NCL Star from Reykjavik to visit 3 ports in Greenland and 3 ports in Iceland. Itinerary timing is wrongly designed because at these latitudes, the weather ...

Avoid this ship

Review for Norwegian Star to Arctic

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

This is the ship that Norwegian chooses to send to the arctic and to the antarctic. They should not. It's a below average ship, maybe similar to the ones carnival uses for its bargain cruises. The food is somewhere between mediocre (on the high end) and palatable. It is bland, and the ingredients are of poor quality. When the highlight of every meal is the soup, something is off. But ...

Very disapponring cruise and cruise line attitude

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We (groop of 7) booked the cruise from Iceland to Greenland on NCL Star. The cruise is very expensive comparing to other destinations. The expectation was very high as well as our disappointment of the cruise. 2 ports were cancelled due to whether/sea conditions. It is privilige of the captain and we cannot judge if his decision was justified or not. But we understood thia is not rare ...

NCL -- Frustrating, Stressful, Debilitating Cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

My partner and I chose this NCL rather expensive cruise because half of the 11-day cruise time was to be spent in Greenland. When we were checking in at the cruise terminal at Reykjavík, we got our first unpleasant surprise of the cruise, The Captain had cancelled all the Greenland ports and was taking the ship to Norway before heading back to Iceland for the last 4 days of the cruise. If we had ...
