Breakaway Sept 23 2018. We were told foul weather prevented the ship from leaving port in Copenhagen where we stayed for two days, There was no report of bad weather until we reached Estonia.We stayed an additional two days in Estonia due, again, to bad weather.. Additional port stops in Norway and Sweden were cancelled before we reached St. Petersburg. One day delay resulted in the cancellation of two more ports, All outdoor activities aboard the ship were closed due to the weather. The indoor bowling did not appear to be working. There was a loop of movies playing over and over along with NCLs aggressive sales pitches on T.V. There appeared to be no contingency for entertainment during the daytime when bad weather delayed the ship. The cruise directors were depressingly awful. Nowhere to sit and read... nowhere to sit at all other than stateroom. restaurant or bar....with staff pouring oversized drinks to appease unhappy cruisers. The buffet was mediocre at best. Some of the food was just plain awful Staterooms (mini suites) are organised for fair weather cruising and sitting on the balcony.Sitting and reading in the stateroom was dark and depressing Worse cruise ever. Never again NCL!

AWFUL
