Toilet issue. We did not load it, but had to call for it to be fixed three different days. Something about switch not working. We chose not to use it and went to toilets in nearby hallway. Darn thing would flush it self right before the plumber came.

Ports of call

Copenhagen, Denmark

Use hop-on-hop-off bus and boat. Great value and easy way to see Copenhagen Only regret is that Tivoli Gardens was closed until day after we left for home.

Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany

4 out of 5
We did not use Norwegian for this. Instead rented car and drove to Sherwin Castle. Then walked to Waremenunde from the ship. Excellent.

Tallinn, Estonia

Gloomy town. Norwegian guided tour of town was very nice.

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

SPB Tour total Cost was $420 for two days. I would recommend Norwegian look at more options for that port. We were not interested in evening off the ship. The Russian dancers on the ship were OUTSTANDING.
