Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Mid-Ship Oceanview Stateroom with Large Picture Window
Glow party

Friends told us a Baltic cruise would be good for us. It was. We really enjoyed this cruise. We were told that our cabin was ocean view or better. We were told that meant if there were better cabins available we would be upgraded. There was better available, but no upgrade. We were on a low deck that was extremely noisy. Not a very romantic send off for our first ever cruise and our honeymoon. The service in many areas left a lot to be desired, however we encountered some staff that was over and above any expectations and really blew us away. Food in main dining areas was bland and very small portions. We had the drink package and the fine dining package. The restaurants in the fine dining were simply amazing. We loved NCL’s freestyle cruising and would love to cruise NCL again but to know that balcony cabins went unused and activities staff seemed unprepared or even uninterested in some of the games and such makes you wonder if NCL even cares that you are there.

Cabin OB

The cabin was small, noisy and even though we informed NCL we were arriving for our honeymoon we had to push the beds together ourselves. Bathroom smelled like sewage the whole time.

Port Reviews

Rostock (Warnemunde)

We did our own excursion recommended by a travel blogger called Friends of David. It was an amazing tour.

Gdansk (Warsaw)

Nothing to see or do


Very walkable and beautiful

St. Petersburg

We booked our own 2 day excursion for less than half the price of the ship. It was through Viator and the tour itself was City Break Tours. It was a really good time.


We stayed there. Did our own thing.
