A ship that has poor entertainment, misleading shore excursions information and is tired and dated.

Sail Date: Oct 2022
Cabin: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony

We chose this cruise for the ports which were advertised to be in Belgium, France, Spain and Portugal. Portugal was removed from the itinerary before we sailed with no reason as to why. Le harve was also removed due to strike action at the port and whilst this is not the fault of NCL we did not get our port fees returned. Then the port for Bordeaux was cut short as there was no crane at the port for the gangway. The last port was cancelled which was Guernsey due to the weather.

The cabin was clean but dated and very small nothing to sit on except the bed.

The entertainment was boring and lackluster. The singers and dancers were amateurish and shouted rather than sang. The guitar/singer player was awful. The violin players were good.

Clean but very small and very dated.

Port Reviews


We walked to the fishing village and had tapas in a lovely little Spanish restaurant.

Brugge (Bruges)

Lovely trip into Brugges did trip through Ncl "Brugge on your own". As advertised not really value for money but we got what was expected.
