Best place on the whole cruise. Only room for one ship to dock that we could see. The people are great and the onshore food is excellent. Beautiful town! Would move there in a second! Bagpipes farewell was a nice touch.
Don't Miss: Cruising with the Eagles, and The Pub for food and drink.

The town was too small for 3 cruise ships to stop at. Too many people there for a very small town. Overcrowded when 7000 people get off 3 ships in the same day.
Don't Miss: Take the Train Ride.

It was a rainy day, not much to see. Our shore excursion was good.

Pros: Shore Excursions, the crew, and our Room

Cons: Standing in line over 3 hours to board, The Food was awful

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.
