We wanted to go on a Baltic Cruise because it stopped at destinations that we’ve never visited before. So the ports of call on this cruise perfectly satisfied the cities we desired to visit. The entertainment was great. The food was good. However, there seemed to be a little disorganization at dinner time and reservations. Most people with reservations were getting frustrated. All people, with or without reservations, were lined up in the same queue and there seemed to be a lot of confusion. At the same time, I couldn’t help it feeling bad for the staff as well. Because they tried their best to seat people as quickly as they could but they could only do so much. Sometimes they had to send you to another one of their restaurants because the one that you had reservation at was full! Suggestions: To reduce everyone’s frustration organize two different lines One “with reservation” one “ without reservation”. The seats at “Headliners” were extremely uncomfortable, and we weren’t the only ones complaining about that! There is a easy fix for that. Our overall experience was great and we look forward to our next cruise and we decided to only go on cruises with newer ships like Getaway.

Best designed cabin I’ve ever experienced on cruise ship

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony Stateroom
Cabin BB 8174
This was our first experience with Norwegian cruises. We’ve been on 4 previous cruises, always stayed in a cabin with a balcony and this cruise was the best and the most comfortable we’ve ever experienced. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was designed so well and roomy. Everything was just right. All the information we needed was at our fingertips from our updated bill to port excursions to entertainment.
