NCL is now into making you pay for everything. They nickel and dime you to death. The right hand side of the regular restaurant menu has prices on it if you want to order things like lobster. No more free lobster on any night.
Your Latitudes coupons or Le Bistro doesn't include lobster and you have to pay an additional $25 if you want it, no credit for the coupon.
Room service now has a charge.
Handicap cabin. Noisy does not describe it. You are in the hall that they use to push carts back and forth for the OSheeans 24 hr restaurant. There is doors banging, carts bashing into your wall right where on of the beds is, and workers singing at 5am.
Shower roll in, we had to put towels all over the floor or we would have had a swimming pool.
No chair or couch. Yes a larger room, but not very functional if you are not handicapped.
Also light came in from the lifeboats through the window, always looked like day light. Hard to sleep with the bright light.
We actually used a company Alla Tours for Germany and St Petersburg. They were excellent. No need to use NCL cruises. Twice as expensive. And you don't have to worry about Visas, your ticket and invoice for Alla is all you need. No problems at all getting into Russia.
