Very Pleasantly Surprised Overall. Plus, Cabin Review.
"Although she is an old ship, I found her to be in very good shape, nevertheless the styling and décor are way out of date.) Most of the time, we found the bar service around the ship to be fairly attentive, and with a wide range of spirits available...."Read More

Not what I paid for.

Review for a South America Cruise on Norwegian Star

Dknurse
First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

Having cruised on Norwegian before the pandemic, I believe Norwegian is suffering from post pandemic syndrome and is using the pandemic to reduce services and quality. My specific problems were: 1. The itinerary followed was not what I paid for. The three days cruising Antarctica were reduced to one while the weather was glorious. 2. Sanitation standards were low. I contracted Covid ...

Lower your standards if you've done other cruises.

Review for a South America Cruise on Norwegian Star

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our 6th cruise. Unfortunately ranks at the bottom. If you've cruised within the US or Europe, this will be a disappointment. Embarkation. Like a disorganized maze. Luggage drop off is different location from your checking in. Buses will ferry pax from these 2 locations. Address sent by Norwegian Star erroneous....meant for locals only. Itineraries. Antarctica (Paradise Bay, ...

Review for a South America Cruise on Norwegian Star

Happy Cruiser 1983
First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

So, first time cruiser here so I have little point of reference. But, I had an absolutely brilliant time with my father on this voyage of a life time to the utterly amazing Patagonia and Antarctica (sorry if this is a bit long). Embarkation - so easy. It took around 45 mins to arriving at bag drop off to sitting by the pool with a beer in my hand. At all points there seemed to be forward ...

We cruise often and have mainly stayed with Norwegian so we have achieved some status that adds a few perks. This was an amazing itinerary mainly to see Antarctica and that did not disappoint. It should be on everyone's bucket list. The good - We like the size of the Star. Not a mega ship, holding about 2500 passengers. The staff was friendly and helpful without exception. The ...

My husband and I spent Christmas in this amazing ship from Buenos Aires to the Antartica visiting the most beautiful places along the way. From the beginning till the end, it was an amazing experience. The staff was always respectful and resourceful giving their best to ensure their guests were taken care of. The music was unbelievable amazing as well. We are from the island of enchantment and ...

About the Reviewer: I’m a middle-aged American male who traveled solo on this, my 60th voyage. Over half of my sailings have been with NCL, however, I have sailed on other cruise lines including Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, MSC and Carnival. This cruise was my first cruise as a Diamond Latitudes member with NCL. My reviews are written in chronological order of events as they took place on the ship. ...

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Norwegian Star

jazzramgolf
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise to visit Morocco and several ports we had not been to but the Moroccan ports were cancelled at the last minute. Although this was a complete overreaction by the cruise line and we were disappointed it was followed by many other disappointments. The food onboard is nowhere as good as that offered precovid, ie some cold dishes and the flavour and variety has deteriorated. We had ...

Review for a Norwegian Fjords Cruise on Norwegian Star

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We had an unexpected two weeks off and asked our travel agent to find a good deal for a cruise. The travel agent found a Norwegian cruise on the Norwegian Star leaving Southampton on October 23, 2023. We had never sailed with Norwegian before and were open to trying it out. We've sailed previously with Carnival, Celebrity, Oceania, Princess and Royal Caribbean. We have not cruised since 2018 so we ...

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Norwegian Star

Magickal1
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We love NCL, Sapphire level 20+ cruises, however, this cruise was pretty bad. 1- Cruise management Many problems could have been prevented with better management. With 10+ busses returning from excursions at lunchtime the main dining room was closed . This created a chaotic situation at the Garden Cafe and the Irish Pub with no seating available. Assigning excursions to busses was also ...

Review for a Europe - British Isles & Western Cruise on Norwegian Star

Saturday, September 23 I am John and my wife, Eve, took this cruise after spending a day touring London. The drive to the port from our London hotel was 2 hours away. NCL wanted everyone on board by 2 pm, so we knew it would be tight. We were making good time until we got off and hit Southampton local traffic, then everything turned to a crawl. Later, we found that there was a boat show going ...
