The Norwegian Star is the best

Sail Date: May 2012
Destination: Bermuda
Embarkation: New York (Manhattan)

My wife and I had the best cruise of our lives. The May 13th to May 20th New York City cruise to Bermuda was fantastic. The Star, while being 11 years old, is the best made, best maintained and the best executed (activities) ship in the NCL fleet. The food was good and plentiful. The shows were superb especially the last night's "Elements" show is not to be missed. Kyle the Cruise Director, sings well and is a great comedian. The "White Hot" party is great although it caters to a mostly under 25 year old crowd. We have three excellent days in Bermuda--I recommend the Bermuda, the whole drive, excursion trip, and a public bus trip(the number 7 bus) to Horseshoe Bay Beach.
Don't believe that the Star is a worn out ship. All the carpeting is new. The crew members were the most upbeat, and positive crew that I have seen. The Star is the only NCL ship that has farewell send off parties at the port of call stop and the disembarkation. Sean, the hotel director, ext. 8888, can solve any More problem you have with your room and services.
The captain, Karl, is to be commended for giving a "free" bridge tour for the Cruise Critics members--not many captains do this.
All in all, a great trip on a great ship. One minus, there is no chapel for religious service. Less

Cabin review: OG5002 Oceanview Porthole Window

Cabin 5002 is a nice cabin but not in a quiet location. You can hear the front of the ship hitting the waves.
