Okay - here goes. I never actually review cruises on this site. I usually use it for planning group excursions and meeting other critics etc. But, this cruise was so terrible, I felt I had to review it. Let me set the scene by telling ... Read more

We picked this repositioning cruise because of the fantastic itinerary...Dubai to Singapore, via India & yes, it was great! Not so good was our mini suite, painstakingly chosen to try & avoid the noise from Deck 12 above. Sadly, ... Read more

We chose this cruise for the destinations, particularly India, as my husband had refused to go there, I was desperate to visit, so this was a good compromise, The Star is an older ship, with some of the advantages of it being smaller, ... Read more

The Star is a beautiful ship, and the price could not be beaten. We booked a guaranteed-rate oceanview cabin, which meant that Norwegian picked the room. Previous experience suggested that, for my wife and me, a balcony was not useful ... Read more

Our outside cabin was great - spacious, heaps of storage space, excellent bathroom with non-stick shower screen and screened toilet. Buffet offered great choices but the decor needs updating. Some dishes were very salty. The pub restaurant ... Read more

We have never taken a Norwegian cruise before and we will never take one again. We have cruised with Princess and Royal Caribbean. We were shocked by the constant nickel and diming on this cruise. So many things were an extra cost, ... Read more

To hit the positives, this was an awesome itinerary. Rome to Dubai with hassle free stops in Middle Eastern countries that would be very difficult to reach any other way. So I would give them 5 stars for itinerary and transportation. ... Read more

The itinerary was truly spectacular. A "bucket list" for us and our traveling companions. For us, every port from Cyprus to Dubai was a new adventure, and even several ports in Italy and Greece offered new experiences. [The ... Read more

We got a great deal on the cruise and stayed in a mini suite, which was a good size with a huge bed and even had a bath in the bathroom. Plenty of wardrobe space which was a bonus. The ship was refurbished in 2015 and you can really see ... Read more

We started our cruise in Barcelona (check in was smooth, pleasant and very friendly, 25 minutes). I had a Moscow mule in hand within 40 minutes of arriving. It lashed the rain which put a dampener on our first day followed by a thunder and ... Read more

Quite disappointed and not as expected, having sailed on the Norwegian Sun previously. I felt that there were too many people for the size of the ship. Cabins quite cramped. Main market café - the worst. Couldn't get a seat, ... Read more
