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

My first cruise, I was a solo traveller. Unsure what to expect, although could not rate highly enough how fantastic the whole experience had been. Food, entertainment, cabin, and the staff were so friendly and welcoming, could not fault ... Read more

First allow me to comment that the service and the food on the Norwegian Star are pretty good. The staff members are friendly and helpful. We had dinner in five specialty restaurants and the quality and service of each of them were ... 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

Just got back from my cruise on NCL Star. It was my 5th cruise and the first time as a "repeater" on NCL. I travelled solo, but on a ship like this you always meet other people. Both embarkation and went smoothly. To my ... Read more

We chose this cruise because the ports were interesting and places we had never visited. We have sailed with NCL several times and basically knew what to expect on board ship. The ports were very interesting so we were not disappointed. ... Read more

I have been on many cruises, but had not been on NCL in many years before deciding to give them another try because I liked the itinerary. I wasn’t crazy about the ship, which was very smoky, and the food wasn’t very good. ... Read more

I set up some specifics for the agent and what I got was this trip. I guess everything was based on selling as much as possible. What I missed most onboard was a small armchair in my room. There were no chair onboard where you could just ... Read more

We choose this cruise based on the itinerary and because the NCL has thermal spa packages available. We had a mid level inside cabin. Our room stewardess was very good. DINING: we enjoyed the dining, with the exception of the coffee. ... Read more
