I don't know if NCL has a staff that actually read these review but if they do, I have some suggestions that may or may not be supported by other passengers. Everyone's experience is different on a ship and everyone has different tastes and interests so read reviews objectively. The Good: Embarkation and disembarkation. 15 minutes to first embark and 10 minutes to disembark and find luggage. The best I've experienced in 9 cruises. Movement and flow on the ship. Never felt crowded No up-selling for spa packages except on paper. I will address the paper issue later. Clearly marked signs even though everyone gets lost. Buffet set up is linear and that is good for flow. Most ships have a chaotic set up, people darting all over the place. This one was consistent and you knew where to go for all items. Food in buffet good to very good. Beverage service a little slow. Specialty dining excellent. Entertainment great and a variety of venues. Reservations confused some into thinking there was a charge. Ample washroom facilities. Customer service guest services very good. Cabin (inside) ample room and efficient storage. Light in the closet would be awesome. House wines offered were good. Lots of space and chairs on deck. (Don't know if this is true in the hotter destinations) I like the reservations for the entertainment. Saves you from rushing from dinner to line up for shows. I like the NCL phone App. I like the smaller included restaurants Taste and Savor, as it gives people who do not have a dining package the feeling of specialty dining even though the menus are the same. I like the touch screens around the ship for reservations. I never felt pressured to get my photos taken. Does anyone like the photography on board? The not so good Atrium is noisy and has little seating. Chaos from guest service line ups interfere with activities in the Atrium. Shopping-pathetic, and I can shop anywhere. The art auction and art. Who buys this stuff? Television- A Canadian channel would be nice. Lots of us cruise the Caribbean well as the Baltics. Temperature of food was inconsistent. Cold steaks and fries are never good. Invisible Captain- never saw him once. Okay,saw his picture. OMG! The Muster station drill.I wanted to jump off the ship. Took over 90 minutes, and one crew sent us to the opposite end of the ship. Good thing it was not sinking. Celebrity does it best. A lot of wasted space. Why not put activities in the Headliner room or Illusionarium as well as Atrium? I'll get to that in suggestions section. Wasted paper for advertising every night on your bed. To dress code or not to dress code? That is the question. People don't make an effort anymore and the dress code sign just annoys the people who have made an effort. Why I dressed up to eat next to flip flop muscle shirt guy, I'll never know. And how did he get the better table? The Suggestions for Norwegian Captain should make an effort to be more visible. Not just at parties for the higher level passengers. Better planned emergency days at sea. Open up more areas so that the Atrium is not purgatory at sea for both crew and passengers. Complimentary sparkling wine that I can't fit in the mini fridge makes no sense. As a returning passenger just let me choose between a bottle of red/white/rosé or beer. Make sure that all included restaurants have the same quality and are managed the same. Savor is managed much better than Taste or the staff is better trained. Food is cold in Taste, warm to hot in Savor. In the Buffet, Celebrity has a card system that shows the wait staff if a passenger has been served or not. There is a slot where the napkins and condiments are kept. Green means I need service, Red means I don't. The days events should be on the television in cabin and not just around the ship. That way I don't need the paper in my room. Why does the photo gallery print all the pictures? Why can't I just view them in my cabin and them decide what I want to purchase? All those printed pictures that people do not buy, where do they go? We have digital cameras now. Also, anyone can steal the photos from another binder and who gets charged? Get rid of photo studio and put more seating are better shopping in. Cruise ships should do more charity promotion. Make some the proceeds from my bingo card go to ocean protection or a charity that everyone would be fine with. I would probably play. Let me know that 1% of the overly priced Internet package was going to a charity in the various ports of call. I would be okay with that. Okay, the OMG Muster station drill. Most of the muster stations have televisions or screens. Celebrity shows the videos simultaneously on the various screens in the muster station with subtitles in three different languages. No televisions? Okay then go old school and say it in three languages. One Princess ship actually took us to our spot on deck so we could see our lifeboats and did the talk over the speaker in three languages.They lined us up as if we were going to board the lifeboats. This made it seem much more real. It started 10 minutes late. Does that make sense. Will a sinking ship wait ten minutes for people? If you're late, you get go to another presentation at an inconvenient time or fine the room. This is a safety issue. Be more helpful to people who have lost their luggage. This has happened to me in the past. The poor people from a flight from Chicago lost their luggage due to a baggage handler strike in Copenhagen. I don't think they ever saw their luggage until the return to Copenhagen. Norwegian offered nothing. Princess offered us a credit for the clothing shop and a tuxedo rental for the week for my husband, and a toiletries bag. On emergency sea days, up the staff to help with issues by opening up other areas of the ship. Put another guest services in the theatre or Bliss lounge. I hope this was helpful rather than just me ranting awake at 3 am because I am still on Baltic time. Read Less

Never been on a cruise before (myself and wife) and I would NOT enjoy any type of formal dressing up; so, chose this for a beginner. The embark and disembark went well and if you are fearful of sea sickness...the ship is too big to be rocked by a few waves. The GOOD - Large ship with a few entertainment options. Initially I thought it was massive, quickly realized that it was just right. - Cabin was comfy (balcony), the room was made up every day (twice) and all was good. - Food was acceptable, although the chefs from the various restaurants (even the a La Carte) has a VERY similar menu with minor variations. The BAD - Shore Excursions. Book your excursions with OTHER companies as the Prices NCL charge are equal to Robbery! However, be warned, if for whatever reason the ship does not make it to any port (due to weather etc...) you have lost your money. The UGLY 1. The information disseminated was poor; as the ship did not make it to Gothenburg; instead made it back to initial port (Copenhagen). NCL put on free transport to the city centre HOWEVER announced NOTHING. 2. As I was not pleased, I went to Customer Services (CS) queued for 20 min and asked for a gesture of good will from the ship (like additional credit etc..) the response someone will be in touch... I am still waiting... 3. I had credit due so I went to Customer Services (queued for 20 min) and asked if it was possible to get the dollars due put back into the account; the response certainly sir. So, I went away. The next day message on the cabin phone to report to Customer Services; again (queued for 20 min) went to CS discussed the refund and was given the same response that it will be paid to my account. The following day cruise over went to leave got pulled to the side and was given a wad of cash... I explained to no avail... Final Assessment To me it appears that when staff do not have an answer to either a complaint or an issue the resort to saying that someone will be in touch... do notice that when they resort to this they immediately avoid eye contact... I am not alone in this assessment; I believe that NCL staff are trained to deal with things in this way as you have no way of getting anywhere. I noticed this more than once with others on the cruise as well. I won't say that I will NEVER cruise with NCL again however be VERY wary as they have your money and they REALLY DO NOT CARE!!!!

We loved the itinarary for this cruise and being able to have 2 days in St. Petersburg was a huge bonus. We were also able to get the deluxe owner's suite so that was the deciding factor. Being in the Haven has excellent benefits, plus this ship has its own Haven restaurant which was really good. I don't think I had one bite of anything I did not like. We also had our own bar which we frequented every day and the staff there is excellent. There were plenty of entertainment choices but we ended up at Sid Norman's several nights because the band there was really good and played a great variety of music. Loved the Wine Lover's musical and also saw several other shows that were very entertaining. The only thing I do not like are the shore excursions with hoards of people. Their private tours (which we did in St. Petersburg) are very expensive, but it was worth it to be able to see what we wanted. Read Less
