Mediterranean freestyle cruz

Loved freestyle cruising. The restaurants and food were great. We could go anytime and that worked best for us. We also chose this cruise for the length and ports we visited. Loved the food and beverage packages. They were plenty of restaurants to choose from, with good variety of menus. The desserts were wonderful. There were problems on boarding day. The boat had just come out of dry dock, ...

I had a desire to see as much of the Mediterranean as possible on this cruise. The Med has always been one of the places in the world that I wanted to see. My wife allowed me to pick this trip because she knew it meant so much to me. NCL offered the best itinerary for what I wanted. It covered parts of both the eastern and western Mediterranean. We spent the first 2 days of our vacation in ...

The embarkation process was pretty slow. When we arrived at our room, the door was wide open, wires hanging from the ceiling and the ceiling light fixtures were on the table. This was fixed the first night. Our luggage arrived two hours after the deadline. Our room steward was awful.....never vacuuming up the massive fuzz created by the new carpet, never taking away our dirty dishes, or ...

We went for a romantic, anniversary, once in a lifetime vacation and that’s exactly what we got. The ship had just left dry dock and with that, there were issues with the programming of the key cards and door locks. Once that was fixed, they generously compensated us, and it was smooth sailing (pun intended) from then on out. We kept ourselves entertained by entering some of the games on board, ...

I picked this cruise because of the itinerary. It was my first time sailing Norwegian and only my 4th cruise. Embarkation day in Barcelona was horrible. We arrived at 1pm and the line was all the way down the street. There was no shade and no water. We finally made it on board about 430. They were still loading luggage onto the ship at 6 which was suppose to be our departure time. The Star has ...

We chose this cruise for the itinerary. This was my first and last time on NCL! We are seasoned cruisers and never had issues on previous trips. Trip was fantastic based on the the ports of call, excursions we took and friends we made on the ship. Ship however, after coming out of dry dock we had high expectations that the ship would be in top notch condition. That shortly proved to be wrong. ...

We picked this cruise for the ports and the freestyle cruise. We were happy with our choice. The ship had just completed dry dock and had a new crew. Some of the minor problems this caused did not both me or my wife. The cabin with balcony was perfectly acceptable. The TV did not work for a couple of days, but that was not important to our happiness. Our excellent room steward vanished a ...

Not the same Norwegian I've sailed on before!

We booked this cruise while we were on the NCL Dawn last year during a western Caribbean cruise. We've always booked suites or the Haven (when available). This cruise was no different. We had a forward facing penthouse with a huge balcony/deck (9502). We were a little apprehensive about this cruise because the Star was coming out of dry dock for some major renovations. We were worried that ...

Great destinations but poor service and overall quality of NCL Star.

PROS: The destinations on this cruise were incredible, Barcelona, Monte Carlo, Rome, Livorno, Naples, Santorini, Athens, Zadar (Croatia) and Venice. You get to see a little bit of each destination to help you decide which ones to comeback too to explore more on your next land vacation. The sites to see in each destination are incredible. Athens and Rome are as expected and will not disappoint you. ...

Our first cruise on NCL and possibly our last

6-10 Cruises • Age 50s

We selected this cruise because we had some close friends who recommended it and would be joining us. Our first impression started off the wrong way when we arrived at the cruise terminal where there was no organization on behalf of NCL. We exited our bus and proceeded to the terminal and joined a mob of people where there were no signs or assistance from the staff. After we were able to tag our ...
