11-Day Venice, Croatia, Montenegro, and Greek Islands. Fantastic itinerary! Breathtaking views on excursions and when entering & leaving ports! Heartstopping sunsets! No "at sea" days! I can't say enough ...

Weird itinerary, disappointment with state room, really great staff

We chose this cruise because we were determined to have an Adriatic itinerary and were limited to this particular week. As such, Norwegian was the only cruise that fit the bill. The ship was nice and the central ...

NCL needs improvement

Chose this cruise for an extended family vacation- 12 of us in total. Tough to find a date and itinerary that worked for everyone. This one fit the bill- in theory. On paper the itinerary sounds great- Kotor, Corfu, ...
