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

Went with friends who have been on cruises before. We found Cabin staff and some wait staff very friendly. The food was very good. I was gluten free and Osmond looked after my menus every day, always with a smile and helpful advice. ... 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 chose this cruise based on the itinerary and it definitely did not disappoint! As for the ship, hands down one of the greatest crews we have encountered. From our always smiling room steward all the way to the Captain of the ship ... Read more

Awful ship. Cabins are extremely small and worn out. Mold growing in shower and could not turn around in incredible small bathroom. Room steward never cleaned the room. Started dirty and stayed that way. Food is the worse I've ever ... Read more

Cruise was taken on the recommendation of the travel agent. He said it wasn't in Fred Olsen or P&O class - at least he got that one right. It was terrible!! We arrived at Copenhagen and had to wait more than 2 hours for other flights. ... Read more

The ship looks tired. It needs a redo. The Garden Cafe looks like a factory cafeteria - no decor whatsoever. The crew is wonderful - every one of them a friendly face, eager to help, from the wait staff in the restaurants to the guy in ... Read more
