Norwegian Star

August 2015 - Norwegian Star to Europe - Northern Europe

Pleasant but disappointing

We are swimmers, but swimming pool is small and was always filled with kids diving/jumping (not allowed) without a monitor. No adult-only swimming area. We found food to be less enticing than on a previous NCL cruise. Disembarking in ports was disorganized. Excursion/Customer service people were rude and unhelpful to passengers who had booked non-NCL tours. 

We had an exceptional cabin steward, who made up for the numerous negatives we excerienced.

donfranz's Tips

Tallinn, Estonia - There is a lot of walking on cobblestones. Our guide was exceptional, but others we heard were not so good.
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany - Trip to Berlin is a long day and much walking. The non-NCL tours seemed to have better guides, judging from discussions with other people.
Stockholm, Sweden - Late tour (12:30) meant a rushed time in Old Town since ship departed at 4:00.
Norwegian Star Norwegian Star - The cabin was under the swimming pool area, which meant that people were scraping chairs and making noises early and late. As swimmers, the pool arrangement was a major disappointment - small with no "adult only" area.
