Ship Facts: Norwegian Star Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Star Deck Plans
Great cruise!
This was only our second cruise, but it was so different from our first, both in the cruiseline and the ports. Our first one was in the Mediterranean and this one was in the Caribbean (western) - our first time to the Caribbean.

The NCL freestyle cruising suits us more so than RCI's traditional cruising. Also the variety of eating venues on the ship was awesome: 4 which were included in the cruise fare, as well as room service, and another 6 speciality restaurants ranging from $10-$25 cover charges per person. We did try one of these, Teppanyaki, at $25 pp, and it was worth it. We were seated around a large table with other guests (a maximum of 12) and we were entertained by 2 very capable chefs as they prepared our food in front of us, while juggling knives and salt and pepper shakers and spinning eggs and making jokes. It was so much more than food, which, by the way, was very good. The dress code is "freestyle", which means if you want to dress up, go ahead, but if you choose to keep casual, that's ok too.

The entertainment in the Stardust Theatre was exceptional. We saw 3 shows: "Shout, The Mod Musical', "Angels" and the finale "Elements". We were happy with our balcony room, except we found the bed to be quite hard - the only downside to an otherwise perfect vacation.

The top shore excursion was the tour of Roatan, Honduras, with Rony's Tour. We are so glad to have booked this tour with Rony's, which we found online and there were so many wonderful reviews. Now we can add our own. You can customize your tour to do what you want to do. Rony offers many different things to choose from and you choose how you want to spend your day. Our guide, Arnold, was a friendly, young man, who gave us the royal tour of their beautiful island. We highly recommend Rony's Tours. Final word - we would definitely go on another NCL cruise.
