Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2018
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window

ncl should not offer this cruise at this time of year. Cabins are so smalls.

activities on ship poor, sexual innuendos by staff when in atrium, theater, on tv.

Missed 3 ports of call.

No credits given

When stranded in port did not offer any additional activities or entertainment without charging for everything.

Cabin smelled like dried blood all week.

Leaving ship wasted time in corralling passengers., lost over 2 hours on our tour that day when we got off ship, couldn't make up time.

Poor organization. If we did go to Sweden, the port was 50 min from ship, we could never have seen Stockholm. We heard this ship has not gone to Stockholm in 4 years, so why offer it.

NCL squeezes out the almighty $$$ and offers nothing. Your garden cafe offers cafeteria food. Tables dirty.

The dining areas are limited in menu items. Wait staff brought out parmesan cheese for entree after you were done every single time.

Food was never hot, always tepid.

Never had lemons for water.

Quality of food was fair.

We heard from staff the week prior ports of call were missed, if the weather is so unpredictable in september, don't offer cruises.

Worst vacation ever, waste of time & money. My poor mom at 87, is so disheartened that her last big trip was this.

Never again, some $$ compensensation to passengers is warranted.

NCL your reputation is at stake.
