Just don't embark or disembark: Norwegian Star Cruise Review by ladybegood
Overall Member Rating
Just don't embark or disembark
Destination: Mexican Riviera
Embarkation: Los Angeles
Shows generally good- owing to very talented and charming magician and his wife. But they were used SO often ( one night solely them and key and major part of 2 additional nights, plus some further afternoon sessions). Should program be that dependent on one performer? More Hypnotist also very good and also repeatedly used. Show Shout was awful- as clear by a large part of audience walking out. Having seen old Second City, I was very disappointed by this "Second City" group-- only one of the 4 performers made any effort at improvisation or acting.
The so called Murder Mystery paid lunch featuring the Second City at $20 pp was awful. The clues had no relevance, again most of the group made no effort at either acting or creativity and the lunch was bad with no options and choices. It would have been nice if the Star had given necessary info.
Inadequate public space. Told that public lounges converted to private suites. Situation worse by relatively small cabin size.
Everyone said embarking and disembarking was Worse ever experienced. 2 1/2 hours to get on and over 1 1/2 hours just to get through NCL portion of disembarking. While NCL tried to blame customs, the customs portion was quick and several people reported that repeated NCL Star problem. Less
