Just completed a 9 night Balcan Capital Cruise on NCL Star. This was our third NCL cruise and we have been on many other cruiselines. We liked the itinerary and ports of call. That was amazing. Right from Berlin to Estonia, St Petersburg, Helsinki and Stockholm. Each gave a picture of its own, nostalgia of touching the Berlin Wall to the glitter of domes and statues in St. Petersbug to the beautiful scenery that traveled with you for hours and hours before and after leaving Stockholm. Having a view from full balcony made our trip. Shore excursions very expensive. Often the Russian Guides had difficulty speaking English. Our room, service, decor are like any other ship. Entertainments included variety and that was nice. What made our trip sour was the food. There were not many vegetarian options. Requesting a Panini gave us either plenty to eat, or wait longer or no we are out of bread type replies. Having requested Indian vegetarian food turned to be a mistake. The chef does not know how to cook. He made the same lentils for more than 12 meals, often straight. His version of bread or Puri was what the beginners do. Halwa was yellow! Oh come-on. And that too coming from the head chef who was Indian. I often heard angry remarks from other guests like this "This is a joke of Indian Food"; "We do far better at home then this". Our own comment was no different. Sad to say, that while we had gone determined to book another cruise while on the ship, the food quality made us change our mind! I am glad our next cruise is not on NCL, not for near future at least. Read Less
