Chose this cruise primarily for the Itinerary - however we missed 2 ports. The 1st due to NCL's disorganization and leaving Copenhagen several hours late. The 2nd Port there is conflicting information, Captain said high winds, newspapers say dock had ambulance and police do to an incident. Getaway designed for the Caribbean, not Northern Europe. People normally on water slides, the pools, etc were inside making for a very crowded, very noisy ship. Activities were over subscribed and over crowded and a different venue should have been used. Previous cruises with solo activities were incredible, non existent on this sailing, so bad not funny, embarrassing NCL! Total disorganization and long waits, we were 2 hours in Edinburgh, with the tendering. Food in Savor and Tast lukewarm and overcooked at best. Buffet was insanely crowded. Staff were excellent and great service in the cabin, restaurants and bars. Overall, very disappointingly and would avoid this ship until they get their act together.

HUGE Disappointment !!
