Review for Norwegian Sun to Baltic Sea

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Does not compare to the 138,000 +/- gross ton ships out there. For the most part pretty well maintained but a little boring. The excitement was visiting the Baltic! Food average overall, and many items were pretty good, but a lot of repetition. But horrible soups across the board, not even a basic quality. Coffee consistently horrible! Then I asked some questions and this is what I found out. ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

We are well traveled seniors. This was our first cruise because I always thought I would not like cruising. Would there be crowds and long lines, would I be bored? Norwegian's Freestyle seemed very appealing to me coupled with a great itinerary made this trip very appealing. Embarkation: I wanted to arrive early because I did not know what to expect and was prepared for a long wait. Thirty two ...

Well - to make it easy: you can pay more - and you get more... but I am always asking myself is there a need to have more and spend the money for another cruise for some comfort of one cruise only. With NCL I can afford balconies while with the same budget I would only get lower categories. But you must accept some lower standards in the free food. Our cruise started in Copenhagen. A ...

Our travels began at Charlotte Douglas International airport. Our friends arrived at our home early. We feared that we could possibly have an interruption as the democratic convention was in full swing in Charlotte. The day of our departure both the current president and past president were flying in. If the airspace was closed for an extended time we would miss our connection in Chicago which ...

There were supposed to be only 2 sea days on this cruise so it is fairly hectic with a port almost every day. St.Petersburg was the highlight for us, we did the 2 day ModerateTour with SPB Tours and found them to be really informative. Olga was our tour leader (14 participants) and she was very knowledgeable - we would recommend her and SPB Tours. We found the Moderate Tour to be all we wanted ...

Before I begin, I want to thank our dear friends, Heinbloed (Tien) and Bruno for taking care of us "2 old people". Without them we wouldn't have seen as many interesting and beautiful nature. Heinbloed had planned all of our excursion. The day before we embarked on the cruise, they took us by rental car to the Kronborg castle, Karen Blixen's museum and just to see the outside of the Louisiana ...

We have received great info over the years from these Cruise Critic posts. Finally decided to pass along a few observations in return: 1. First of all, this is a great itinerary. Hard to imagine hitting all these cities by plane in 9 days. 2. The ship was in great shape and actually felt larger than we expected, have cruised on the Golden and Grand Princess. This ship felt almost as ...

We recently returned from a fantastic cruise on the NCL SUN, touring the Baltics. This is a very port intensive cruise and the 2 sea days were very welcomed by my group! Our group was myself, DH, 17 yo DD, 13 yo DS and a friend and her 16 yo DD (they were first time cruisers). We had 2 balcony rooms, one for the boys and one for the girls. We arrived in Copenhagen 1 day prior to the cruise. We ...

If you are thinking about doing this cruise, don't hesitate. It is great! We had such a fun time on the ship and in the ports. The cities that you see are all different and beautiful. Being able to see these cities in nine days was really a treat! We were glad that we chose NCL since they have the freestyle cruising. We liked the casual atmosphere. Freestyle dining on the Sun made eating so easy. ...

My boyfriend and I sailed on NCL's 9-night Baltic Capitals cruise on August 29th from Copenhagen. This was my 5th cruise, 4th on NCL (other non-NCL cruise was on Royal Caribbean), and it was his first cruise. We are in our mid-20s/30s and don't really consider ourselves "cruise people" -- but we chose to go on this cruise because it would allow us to see a lot of different places without the ...
