Dubai, our port city, was on my bucket list and the rest just fell into place since we hadn't traveled the Middle East it was an opportunity. We really enjoyed the private tours we set up in Dubai and enjoyed the older section where we stayed. The ship was great and the entertainment was beyond my expectations. Much better than the last few cruises. Our cabin was small considering it was a ...

The Norwegian Star's itinerary was really good for this 20 day cruise. The ship was clean and always being worked on to keep it in tip top condition. We enjoyed the food in the main dining rooms. We tried the four Specialty dining rooms, Moderno was the first and the meat was just okay; La Cucina the food was mediocre, we would not go back, LeBistro was good the first time we went and just okay ...

Suez Canal transit was the motivating factor. Loved the idea of going to eight countries with unique culture, fantastic sights and great history. We highly recommend this type of itinerary to others. This was our second visit to Dubai, and was able to refresh our memories. Embarkation and disembarkation were very smooth as guests staying in Suites get special service. Ship was clean and ...

FABULOUS CRUISE ON THE NCL STAR

I loved everything about our cruise through the Middleeast. The ports were great. The crew were all wonderful. The food and service were top notch. I hope those that disagree will go find another cruise line. They won't be missed by those of us who love NCL and the STAR. THe ship is a nice size - not too big. Our cabin was great. The meals were very good. I ...

Itinerary excellent but onboard experience pretty mediocre

The itinerary was excellent. The order which certain ports was visited didn't make much sense - I hope that scheduling two 12-13 hour tour days back to back was because of the availibility of the ports and not sloppy planning. The food was awful. I need a gluten free diet but they made only half hearted efforts at providing gluten free foods. Day after day the Market Cafe buffet didn't have ...

We chose this cruise because of the amazing itinerary. We started in Dubai and traveled to Fujairah, two ports in Oman, Jordan, two ports in Egypt, overnight in Israel, Crete, Croatia, and overnight in Venice. Our 20 night leg was part of the Star's world cruise. Check-in in Dubai was a breeze and cabins were ready by 1 PM and luggage was delivered by 3 PM. I loved the Star! She is a medium ...

The embarkation in Singapore was a complete shambles! Stood in various lines for a couple of hours.We had a balcony cabin on level 10, which was very pokey, bathroom also tiny (could hardly fit in the toilet), and the provided soaps and lotions of low quality. Too many things on the Star went wrong or weren't good to make this cruise a pleasure. The ports were great but the order was sometimes ...

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We chose this cruise as it visited countries I had not been to like Jordan, Israel and Crete. As we got closer to our sail date, we wondered if there would be itinerary changes due to international politics. We visited all countries on the itinerary with minor time changes for port arrival and departures. Embarkation was smooth and quick with no problems as was the disembarkation. While ...

We picked this cruise because of the itinerary. We added six new country visits to our list. Although there has been some concerns on the security of Middle East and Sinai Peninsula, we felt that tourism should be safe. We felt safe during the cruise and NCL did take measures to make sure we were safe. The entertainment was great. We were impressed with Richard Matti, the cruise director's ...
