Cabin: Family Mini-Suite with Balcony

We chose this cruise for the itinerary which unfortunately we missed 60% of the scheduled ports due to weather. This was a big disappointment but overall the ship is beautiful and the staff were wonderful. Although the ship can obviously not control the weather I don’t think adequate provisions were made for the changed itineraries. We ended up not finding out that we were not going to Berlin as we checked in for the cruise at embarkation. There was not time to schedule any activities for the next morning in Copenhagen, I think that the cruise line could have provided a bus for transportation back into the city the next morning or assisted with arrangements given that the itinerary was abruptly changed. The same thing occurred in Tallinn when it was announced that we would also not visit Stockholm or Helsinki. We spent an extra day in Tallinn and there was no assistance offered or provided to help passengers with the extra day there.. these days could have been much better days with minimal assistance from the cruise line. Then when asked about the missed ports the staff just told us that they were told to have us call NCL when we returned. Not satisfactory. So, while the ship and crew were very nice I think NCL failed the passengers on this particular cruise.

Cabin M2

Cabin was nice, not much larger than a regular balcony except the bathroom was huge. Had a bathtub/ shower and a double sink. Very nice!
