Sail Date: May 05, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Oceanview

The Kiel Canal passage of the Norwegian Dream was one of the most memorable and awesome experience I had.I appreciate the total wonderful experience of the cruise, but what I appreciated most wasthe extra and detailed care that the NCL took to prevent the outbreak of any health problems or epidemic.It made all the difference making the cruise an experience that I will remember and cherish for a long time.

Pros: The destinations, the Kiel Canal experience , the wonderful , helpful, pleasant, respectful crew members, the fine food and dining experience,freestyle cruising,the entertainment, the 5 star hotel accommodation,

Cons: The smoking areas and the smoke that was getting into stateroom, and the lack of Catholic religious services available other than the Jewish services

Recommends Norwegian Dream (RETIRED) 136? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship might not be as big as the other cruise lines, but it is its size that made the Norwegian Dream gave all of us the KIEL Canal memorable experience. It is not the size that is the quality that the "Dream" is a dream come true.
Food and Dining
The most pleasant, helpful, efficient and competent crew members made my dining experience a very pleasant one. The delectable food preparation and exotic presentation from the kitchen has to be acknowledged and be noted. Delightful, delicious!
Cabin / Stateroom
The stateroom quality is a 5 star hotel
Service and Staff
I have so much admiration and appreciation of the quality of the ship's staff/ crew.When I was pressed of time prior to a shore excursion, the dining room crew bent backwards to make sure that we had a pleasant dinner and still make it on time to join the shore tours.
If those entertainments were somewhere else where one has to pay, it would have cost me a pretty penny! Thanks .
Helsinki, Finland
With practically everyone speaking English, one can easily and freely explore the city.
Don't Miss: Churches
Tallinn, Estonia
The old town that gives a bird's eyeview of Tallin from the hilltop.
Stockholm, Sweden
Explore the city by bus or by ferry that can be done easily
Copenhagen, Denmark
The mermaid at the harbour (unfortunately was vandalized)
Don't Miss: Tivoli Garden
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
The town's proximity to the port made it so easy to explore.
Don't Miss: The cathedral that dated way back a long time...the beach with those beach chairs.
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Other than what the tour could offer, I found the visit to St Petersburg not as accommodating for individual exploration of the city.
Don't Miss: The Hermitage and other cultural sites
