Room Type: Inside

I am a loyal NCL customer and this was my eighth cruise (and honeymoon) with them. The ports of call and excursions were great but pricey (as is well documented). The Norwegian Star ship is outdated compared to the rest of the fleet. The buffet offers little variety and the food was fair at best. The Internet connection was awful while also being expensive. The fitness center is poor (too small) if you are looking for resistance training. Loved the trip overall. Just disappointed with the accommodations for the first time.

Copenhagen, Denmark
Loved dining in Nyhaven.
Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
Long train or bus ride. Very little time to truly see anything in depth.
Tallinn, Estonia
St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
Hermitage and Church on Spilled Blood were the highlights. Peterhoff wasn't as I had hoped it would be. Nice but not nearly as grand.
Helsinki, Finland
Nice quiet and clean town. Nothing architecturally impressive like the other stops.
Stockholm, Sweden
Not a lot of time for a city with so much to offer. The Vasa Museum is neat but I would probably recommend doing it on your own. The ice bar is a tourist trap, waste of time since you are hearded like cattle through it for your ONE drink. The scenery while navigating the islands getting in to and out of port is breathtaking (4 hours)
