Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Suite

Our family just spent 9 nights in the Baltic on the Norwegian Star on the 14 th floor in one of their 2 Villa's.  To say that we were treated like Royalty would still not do justice to the amazing cruise.  The 3 bedroom, 3 bath Villa with 2 (yes, that is correct) massive patio's totally almost 6,000 square feet (no I am not exaggerating!), a Grand Piano, private Jacuzzi is still underestimating the impact of walking into  your living room with gigantic floor to ceiling windows overlooking the pool area of the ship.  Our bathrooms, bedrooms, walk in closets all were large, luxurious and very hard to leave on our last day.  If anyone wants to experience how royalty travels, I recommend booking one of only 2 Villa's as soon as possible!  The experience will far exceed your wildest expectations!!

Ship Quality
The ship is a traveling village with lots of wonderful areas to explore.
Food and Dining
We elected to also get the dining package and ate at almost all of the restaurants which gives you a wonderful selection.
Service and Staff
Our Concierge, our butler and our steward were absolutely the best of the best!
We saw 2 shows and both were quality entertainment.
Children's Programs Did not experience, but this cruise had more families than I have ever seen before.
Onboard Activities
We rarely left our perch at the top of the ship since we had our own world but people were very busy.
Destinations and Excursions
Our ports were all unique, some very accessible, other's involved using boats to travel to and from, or on/off buses, there were many different price ranges for tours or if you really wanted to be decaddent you could sit on your patio and watch everyone else tour.
Cabin / Stateroom
As I have e xpressed over and over there are certain moments in your life when something you know about FAR EXCEEDS your expectations. The Villa is one of those "A-H-H-H-H-H" moments when you walk in and see how spectacular it is!
Copenhagen, Denmark
A charming almost Paris-like city that is easy to explore!
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
Tallinn, Estonia
A cute, easy to access medieval city. We loved the town square where you could sit and watch the world go by.
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Helsinki, Finland
A quaint waterfront town, but our family would have preferred more time in Stockholm!
Stockholm, Sweden
We would have loved more time to explore this city. The scenery traveling to it is some of the most beautiful any of us have ever seen. A true visual treat!


There truly aren't words to describe how UNUSUAL and UNIQUE our Villa was onboard ship. This was the once-in-a-lifetime cruise for our family and the ability for all of our family to share it together perfect!
