Ship Facts: Norwegian Star Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Star Deck Plans
NCL Star: Bermuda July 1, 20123
We embarked from NYC. It was fast and easy. We arrived at 11:30, checked our baggage, proceeded through security, checked in, had our E-Docs, passbooks scanned, picture taken, set up our on board account, received our cabin key card, did a photo op, and boarded the ship. We were on board by 12:00. This total process took about 30 min.

When we boarded the ship we were greeted by crew members who gave us damp towels to wipe our brow. The crew members were very cheerful and dancing to the music.

Once on board we proceeded to the buffet on Deck 12 for lunch. The food was ok but not great. We only ate there once.

At 14:00 we were able to go to our cabin where our luggage was waiting for us to unpack.

At 15:30 we had the emergency drill, which went very smoothly, the crew members were there directing everyone to their correct waiting station.

At 16:00 went to deck 12 to party. As we approached the Statue of Liberty, the DJ switched to God Bless America, Neil Diamond's Only In America, and while leaving N Y Harbor he played New York, New York. Then it was back to party music.

Cabin 8120: Handicap Accessible/Cat. OK seemed larger than it was, because of the layout. A king size bed, large picture window, nice size closet, plenty of shelves to put away your cloths, and a very large bathroom, with a walk-in shower, and pull down shower seat, and plenty of safety bars. The only draw back was the ramp. It was the same color as the floor. It was very hard to see. In facy my wife slipped down on the ramp last day of the cruise, and injured herself. The ramp should be of different color and texture.


Aqua: We had dinner here several times and the food was delicious and filling.

Blue Lagoon: Open 24hrs. The food here was very tasteful. Had lunch here several

times. Recommend the Tomato Soup and Panini.

La Cucina{ The food here was terrific. Worth the $10.00 cover charge.

Cagney's: Steaks cooked to perfection. Left there full. Definitely worth the

$25.00 cover charge.

Modeno's: Brazilian Steak House. They serve you different types of meat cooked

to perfection. Left there stuffed. Worth the $20.00 cover charge.

Entertainment:Stardust Theater: Saw two musicals ( Band on the Run and Shout},

and a comedy/juggling act. All worth seeing.

Spinnaker Lounge: The place to be after 23:00. Loud music, dancing

and shows.

The Crew{ Found the crew to be charming, polite, and very helpful.

Ship Layout: Once you get to know it, it is very easy to navigate. The hallways

are a bit tight, but manageable.


King'Wharf is the main port. Here you can get to anywhere in Bermuda,

by ferry, taxi, or bus. Must do here, is visit the Bermuda Rum Cake

Factory. Here you sample before you buy. Recommend Traditional and

Chocolate Run Cakes. Visit the pink sand beach of Horseshoe Bay.

Hamilton{ Take the ferry it is quick. Only 20min. Visit the zoo. It may

be small but quaint.

When returning to the ship, stop a Carol Holding"s, this is were we bought most of our liquor, and souvenirs, at Duty Free prices.

Disembarkment: Pick up your return tags the night before, The color you choose

determines what time you leave the ship.Have your luggage outside

your cabin by 02:00

All in all we had a great time and would recommend this cruise to a relative and friend.
