Actually it was a YMT offer which they selected NCL not us. However, we chose it for combination of reasons: time of year, price, a cruise with bus trip in U.S. and ports of call were of interest. We were a little disappointed port changed from Amsterdam to Gothenburg but it was a lovely city and we enjoyed ourselves. Let me start with we have cruised 3x before so have a comparison, first time with NCL. Inside cabin SMALL no seating. Weather cool/cold windy so had to stay inside either your cabin or elsewhere. However, couldn't get a chair to sit, like in the Atrium people sat and didn't move ALL day. No extra seats to enjoy any of the programs NCL offered like games. Bar stools filled up early. Felt like vultures waiting for a seat. Layouts in some bars wasted space can add more tables and chairs. Our favorite bar was the Shakers Martini bar but again seating inadequate. Food in Manhattan Club excellent as was the service. Had a couple really great meals in the Garden Cafe Italian and Seafood nights. Other wise nothing in cafe really special some very good to some just OK. Lots of times we waited in lines for the comedy show then for the shows in the theater. Need to open sooner to be able to SIT DOWN. SERVERS very professional. We especially appreciated the attention from our Housekeeping personnel & Supervisor. EXCELLENT. Thank you for listening.
Cabin way too small. This was a repositioning trip, the weather did not allow much outside activities.Once outside of the cabin,every seat on the ship was taken and never given up! Having to go back to the room wasn't an option as it didn't even have a chair just a stool for ONE. DISAPPOINTED. (The Housekeeping was excellent and accommodating to our needs).
By chance got to see the Queen and Prince Christian for opening of Parliment
Beautiful city especially seeing the Cathedral and Magna Cart
Went through Cork and little Hamlets, forest saw horses etc. all on our way to Blarney Castle. Got to Kiss the Blarney Stone. HOW fun and beautiful countryside. Ireland was our favorite especially seeing the Countryside. Quaint
