August 2016 - Norwegian Star to Europe - Northern Europe
We had a lovely cruise, though the weather prevented docking in Stockholm. We received an extra day in Copenhagen at the end of the cruise. My only complaint is the lack of a cozy cocktail area. The big lounge was just that, big, with very loud entertainmet. The 5 o'clok Somewhere bar was a stark aisle pass through. Because of the cool, rainy weather, the outdoor bars were not appealing. That left Gatsby's, a martini bar with maybe15-20 tables. We spent our time here and it was very nice, but it was the only option for us. Food was very good and the service was wonderful. Very kind, thoughful servers. We did not do a specialty restaurant and ate most of our meals in the lovely Versailles Room. Entertainment in the theater was nothing special. The ship is a bit smaller than vessels on our last cruises, so public spaces are limited. Our mid ship balcony room on the 10th deck was very nice. A very good value for the money.
