"First allow me to comment that the service and the food on the Norwegian Star are pretty good. The staff members are friendly and helpful. We had dinner in five specialty restaurants and the quality and service of..."Read More

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. ...

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 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 ...

Excellent cruise because of companions - not the ship for sure.

We went on this cruise because friends of ours invited us. We had been on Star before and - since we like the bigger cruise ships - do not like this layout of the bars and common areas too much. We refer to this class of ship as a small ship with illusions of grandeur because it tries to do everything big ships do but only dabble because the spaces are too small. Because we signed on late we had ...

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, ...

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, ...

Paid a bit extra just for the route but cruise ship was not worth the money

My husband and I chose this cruise because of the route and knowingly paid a little more than average. The cruise ship wasn't worth the price we paid. Will be traveling with a different cruise line or ship in the future. We were extremely disappointed in the seafood options (pretty much only fish, shrimp, and calamari- even in the specialty dining restaurants). Most staff were all very ...

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 ...

We specifically picked this cruise (15th overall) because of the itinerary and we were NOT disappointed. We knew we would basically be using the ship to have dinner, shower and sleep. That said, do NOT select an act 8 deck cabin above the Bliss lounge. Music thumping into the storeroom every night until 1:30 AM! Dining service was great with nice variety of food and friendly servers. Ship does not ...
