9 Night Baltic Capitals (Copenhagen Roundtrip)
Sail Date: May 27, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 10099
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 2 years ago

On the positive side, the cabin Stewards,  the front office staff and all the Star's crew were friendly  and helpful in all matters. The Versailles Dining Room meals and service excellent.

Can't comment on the specialty dining options ....refuse to pay the exorbitant per person prices quoted , which to me seemed equal to the cost of dining in a restaurant ashore. Why? when the ship  provides  the Specialty Dining areas with all the restaurant functions needed from $$ passengers paid for the overall  Cruise..

Nevertheless, our chief complaint is that there are no comfortable places to simply sit and read for pleasure i.e., no chairs or locations in which you may relax.... and/or snooze ! The ship is set up to force you to go to a café, a bar or  lounge where drinks are sold to find comfortable seating. The ship Library is a "postage stamp" with a very small selection of books as compared to all ships we have sailed on - most of which carried half the number of passengers as the Star.

Will not sail on an NCL ship again.
