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 selections offered. Lots of repeats on the dinner menu also. We ended up eating most meals in one of the specialty resturants that were quite good. We have sailed with NCL on several of there ships and this by far was the worst.Thank goodness with this itenary you don't have to spend much time on the ship itself.
Hope this was helpful and by the way if you use SPB for your tours they were fantastic!
