In 2019 a similar itinerary on the NCL Spirit was also not achieved. We did not visit Iceland. Then this time we decided to take a cruise from Iceland itself. Well, our first cruise after the pandemic and after two years planning, we took the NCL Star from Reykjavik to visit 3 ports in Greenland and 3 ports in Iceland. Itinerary timing is wrongly designed because at these latitudes, the weather always is a factor and we ended only visiting 4 ports out of 6. The cruise before us scheduled to also visit Greenland, did not do it at all. We were told by the crew that we were lucky. I was really disappointed and frustrated not meeting our itinerary.

NCL at Miami should do a better Job designing achievable itineraries at these latitudes.

On the cruise I can provide comments:
