Review summary

This was our first NCL cruise; but, it will not be our last. We have cruised with Celebrity, Holland America, and Princess. NCL is the most comfortable. This is largely due to the fact that things on the ship (e.g., freestyle dining) really worked as advertised! We had virtually no lines or wait at any eating venue. There were some minor problems in our cabin (e.g., no lock on the safe). They were addressed in a prompt and professional manner.

Ship tip

The “Freestyle Cruising” really works well! No need for any dressy clothing.

We took an excursion up two mountains. While the views were breathtaking the guide was not really informative. She told us nothing about the fjord, the town or the life.

We took the “Norway in a Nutshell” excursion. For some reason the itinerary was reversed so we ended up eating lunch at 10:30 AM - this is not acceptable, especially given the cost of the excursion.
