August 2016 - Norwegian Star to Europe - Northern Europe
This cruise provided the right amount of time and excursions to see this amazing part of the world. Aside from a temp shift at the last minutes, it was all I expected. The crew on the NCL Star were fabulous, the entertainment was good ( could us a bit of updating) and the food options were plentiful. I love my mini suite and balcony...which enabled me to get up early each morning to see the sun rise and watch as we pulled into each Port. I will say one very important thing...do NOT skimp on excursions. Many on the cruise did a HOP on/off and were not able to get tickets into some of the main attractions (VASA, St Petersburg Palaces and the Hermitage) in the port cities and were very disappointed. 2 groups were late coming back to the ship from alternate tours or on their own in St Petersburg, but thankfully it was day 1, but if it was Day 2, the ship would have left them. Thank you Elise Mahaney for all your help in planning this fabulous trip!
