Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2017
  • Destination: the British Isles & Western Europe
  • Cabin Type: Inside

A very interesting intinerary, not many days in the sea, a very good offer...

Our embarkation was from Hamburg, and we arrived a day before in order to explore the city. This day they nade a great City festival, with carnival, a lot of fun, songs, music, etc/

Altona Cruise Center is near a famous Fischmarkt of Hamburg, the place that worth visit also.

the cruise route is very interesting. We have not ordered shore excursions from NCL. but found all of them via Internet with much better prices. We were afraid about getting in time to the disembarkation hour, but all the guides knew exactly, how to rule a tour in for not be late.

The emteairment was at a very high level. There were better or less better things, but it was always professional and interesting.

Dining was also good, I should add more fresh vegetables for a breakfast, but this is an only thing I can mention...

The one bad thing that happened - a large, a huge line in order to get back to the ship via tenders at Edinbourgh.

They said that Imternet connection was bad and slow on board, but I didn]t use it all - we just had no time at all!

This cruise will remain in our memory forever.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Hamburg

This is a very interesting city, It is sparkling and vivid at Fishmarkt area and rich and respectable at the centre. I reccomend to visit in bith areas. During our visit it was a festival outside. a lot of merry drunk people wearing hippy clothes.

The Path of the Trolls

A very concentrated, interesting, much cheaper than via the cruise line. A verny nice guide, which spoke much, but not too much. Tremendous views.Includes launch, a good one, witrh salmon and deer beef.

A very beautiful tour, but it takes more time to arrive to the places of a real beauty, the ship moves very fast, it is cold and windy outside because of this, and you can=r stay there for a lot of time. Still I recommend it to others, because fjords beauty is something unique. and because of the fact you have enough time to make a city walk after this tour. The shio is embarked in a shirt walk time, so you can even return on board, have your lunch and continue with the city tour of several kinds...

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

All your deaks at this place depend on weather conditions. Thje day we arrived it was windy, and rained cats and dogs, so all the boat tours we planned have been cancelled. We made a tour ourselves, went to Broch Clikimin, a very outstanding archelogical site. Then on our way back we saw picturesqye views of rocks, birds, etc...Don't plan anything before!

Golden Circle

The company is good.And the can sell you two tours in Iceland as an offer, it worth it! We have a bad luck with a guide!

We were waiting more than an hour for two participants that have not arrived finally.

He spoke a lot, but a half of information he gace, was not relevant! He took us to the "excibition" devoted to the last earthquake... All this staff one can find in Google and Youtube. We wasted more than 40 minutes for this place - some lind of shopping centre... Hw didn=t accompany us at the places we went out. (I can compare this with our second excursion of FAB - it was exactly the opposite!)

So only the unique beauty of Geysir, the Waterfall and the National Park calmed us. ))

It was really FABoulous. We visited 5-6 different places, we received a chance to bathe in Blue Lagoon - not that one in Rejkyavik, but not worse...An excellent guide that accompanied us to all the places and told a lot of interesting things.

Kirkwall

There are only three sites in the town, and all of them are one nera the other one...

It is recommended to make a tour to the Ring of Brodgar.

But there are only two tours a day: at 10:00 and at 14:00. The ship embarked at 11:00, so there was only one chance...

Now, pay attention: they begin to sell tickets after 13:00. We arrived to the teller at 12:30, and found a long line... After standing all the line for about an hour we found out that all the tickets have been sold! So if you are eager to make this tour, come not later than 12:00. Finally we were happy, that we have not reached the tickets: it began raining, like a storm, and I just thought about going aroubd outside for the next three hours....Eeeee. We returned on board, drank some tasty beverages in our warm and quiet restaurant and looked outside with a feeiling of satisfaction.))

Highland Day Tour

We ordered a minibus for 8 people. Our driver took us to all the possible places around, include Castle, Distilerry, stunning vies, etc. Highly recommended
