Ship Facts: Norwegian Star Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Norwegian Star Deck Plans
Pleasantly Surprised!
-Easy and enjoyable embarkation process

-Very clean ship; made me want to keep it clean; saw guests, including myself bringing dishes to the station

-Staff is very neatly dressed, at all levels of service, uniforms precise

-Staff is always smiling, distinguished this cruise from the five others I have taken. I felt very welcome, all seven days.

-Fabulous band by the pool, Xcite! Mixed up the tunes, lots of foot-tapping & dancing, day & night-Sound system by pool "just right".

-Loved how the staff from cooks to officers would often get "into" the music, a little bit of dancing and lots of smiles

-All announcements were loud and clear

-Being a sun worshipper, I loved the barbecue at the pool. I never had to go inside to eat during the day.- Excellent fresh grilled food, from burgers, to chicken to paella.

-Enjoyed the crosswords, trivia and sudoku available every day in the library

-Loved how everything started on time!

-The variety of choices in the Market Buffet was phenomenal. I couldn't try everything I wanted to in seven days and we ate breakfast & dinner there every day.

-Enjoyed carrying around the little Daily- very convenient

-Very helpful that the Excursion Desk was open almost all the time

-Found the amount of alcohol in cocktails to be "correct" as opposed to other ships where we swore the bottles were watered down!

-Inside stateroom was very comfortable; plenty of storage space, including snorkel gear

-Wet suits dried quickly in the shower stall

-Temperature control very precise; loved the cool and the warm when needed

-Ship Excursion in Belize: snorkeling from a boat then beach time on an island; Fantastically run by the guy in charge; very polite and well organized; Great rum punch which kept flowing after snorkeling of course!

-Excellent disembarkation instructions; clearly written, placed in cabin and posted on bulletin board.

This was the best cruising experience of our lives!
