Chosen cruise as a good way to see Scandinavia. Disappointed as extra days at sea and missed 3 ports and 2 alternative ports given in 14 days.Missed one of the highlights and draw cards, Iceland ! Extra sea day trapped with expensive internet and business to do! Poor, crowded, noisy inside lounge accomodation as weather was bad. Food was ok, shows were ok. Staff lovely and bad working conditions( no full days off) in 2 weeks and long 12 hours+ days. No compensation no plan B nor C. Poor communication with passengers about what was happening and why and where to next. Staff seemed to be as poorly informed as we were. Understand weather was poor . Perhaps this cruise was too late in the season altogether! This was our first sea cruise.. we won’t be doing another with NCL despite the 25% reduction for next cruise offered. They saved money on the port fees and fuel costs and should compensate us with at least s 25% refund for this cruise. Disappointed.

Unsuccessful cruise
