I have been on many cruises, but had not been on NCL in many years before deciding to give them another try because I liked the itinerary. I wasn’t crazy about the ship, which was very smoky, and the food wasn’t very good. They also confiscate all liquids every time you get back on the ship. I won’t be coming back to NCL anytime soon.


Our flight arrived in Copenhagen early in the morning, and we were met by NCL reps before we even had our bags. We had the NCL transfer, but one person in our group was not on the manifest. We were told that our transfer would include a 2 ½ hour tour of the city on the way to the pier, which was a very pleasant surprise. We got to the pier around 10:30. Our luggage was taken off the bus for us and delivered to the cabins around 3:00. Check in was very quick, although the rep did not know how to register a credit card. We then had to wait in chairs for about an hour before we could get on the ship around 11:30. The cabins were not ready until 1:00. The middle elevators were not stopping on all floors, which created some frustration for passengers in wheelchairs. Boat drill was the shortest one I’ve ever been to.
