We choose this cruise due to its itinerary. There was a limited choice for 7 day Greek island cruises. So we choose the Star as it was recently refreshed. However you can see and feel the age of the boat. The stateroom was clean and spacious enough for 2. Food quality was average to below average. The best food was served in the open seating restaurants and we had the best meal at Aqua. Never used the buffet but it was very crowded during breakfast hours. Get ready to wait 30 minutes to na hour to get seated. We will do all future cruises only with assigned seating. Do not bother paying extra for special dining. We ate at both steak houses and meat was cold, over cooked and of low quality. We also have been disappointed with the service on board. You could feel that there are issues on the boat as most employees did not enjoy their job and it showed. Worst experience was waiting in line for over 1 hour to get tender tickets. At our first stop in Kotor, we almost did not make it even after standing inline for 1 hour to get our tender tickets. Received group # 17, so you can imagine when we got off the boat. Another issue was the length of our stops. Most of them only lasted a few hours, so everything was rushed. We booked all excursions through TripAdvisor and saved over 50% on most of them. Overall we do not recommend this ship. Read Less

The cruise was an awesome experience especially as I was traveling with a large group. The staff was awesome, especially at the Topsiders lounge.My only complaint was the shore excursions. Each port had at least 2-5 cruise ships tendering at the same time. This caused chaos as their were thousands of travelers trying to see the same port at the same time with limited transportation options. The 2+ hours waiting for transportation was insane and the limited time at each destination made it very frustrating to enjoy the island. This may be an issue that the cruise industry should address as it wasn't just an NCL problem. The more popular destinations i.e. Santorini and Croatia seemed to have the most difficulty with transportation and not enough time in port. There should not be 6 cruise ships at these destinations, at the same time. It was the highlight of my trip and ultimately the most difficult to enjoy due to the crowds. Read Less

Embarkation (and disembarkation) was very straight forward and we were on the ship within 15 minutes of arriving. The ship is in a good state of repair and is clean. It’s true, it is a little difficult to navigate your way around and it’s frustrating when you know where you want to go but can’t get there because there are no doors for passenger access. That aside, this is the quietest and smoothest ship I’ve ever been on - no vibration, no rumbles, no drone of engines. We had an inside cabin which had everything we needed - good storage; roomy shower; great hairdryer; plenty of mirrors. We had a drinks package and found all drinks to be of high quality and served with generosity. Food was also of good quality in all restaurants and it was especially good to have so many to choose from. We enjoyed having the dining package (for speciality restaurants) and we’re very pleasantly surprised at the degree of choice on offer as well as the quality of the food. Service was excellent across the board. All of the staff seemed relaxed and happy yet very focused on doing a good job. We didn’t once experience anyone trying to sell us anything. The dress code is SUPER casual. I didn’t wear any of the clothes I’d taken for the evening instead wearing the clothes I’d taken for the daytime. But that led to a very relaxed and casual atmosphere. We didn’t particularly care for the entertainment overall although we did enjoy ‘Paradis’. Maybe it was geared more towards families than adults (understandably) and so we found it to be a bit dull and amateurish. It was also disappointing that there was no bar at the bow of the ship with sea views or an open air bar at the stern of the ship (apart from Spice H20 which has limited seating and was quite enclosed with limited views). On this itinerary the ship didn’t stay long in most ports (just a few hours) which didn’t bother us especially but I know some people were a bit disappointed by that. The gym was quite poor as it had no sea view and was quite small. That said the equipment was all in good order. The jogging deck was very good as the outside edge of the deck was screened off especially for running whereas walkers took an inside track. Read Less
