Avoid the shore excursions and internet package. Overpriced and the excursions were badly organised. They simply brush complaints off and do not care. The cruise itself was fine - the buffet is horrible and some of the staff especially the ... Read more

So. We were on Norwegian. To Norway, right? What a disappointment. Not one meal, not one night's entertainment was devoted to NCL's home country. We were on the Star. Is this ship tired. The sofa in our mini-suite was threadbare on the ... Read more

Embarkation was one of the easiest yet. We walked directly in to the terminal, check in, and walked onboard the ship. Head directly to O'Sheehan's for lunch and wait for rooms to open. Once the rooms were opened we had a BA midship, ... Read more
