We have only travelled with Celebrity before so were quite anxious about the standards we might find. Overall, the cleanliness was impeccable, but the ship could do with a bit of a makeover as it looks a teeny bit date in some parts, in ... Read more

Word of mouth referral, options at booking were good and enticing. We stayed in Venice a couple days before and loved seeing the city. We were not sure what to expect to check in and it was very smooth. Would recommend going early to avoid ... Read more

We’ve normally sailed on NCL’s bigger ships (Epic, Getaway and Escape) which have more and larger attractions on board. My son and I usually hit the waterslides every day so we weren’t sure what we would think of this ... Read more

This was our fifth NCL cruise, from the smallness of Sky to the huge Getaway/Epic. And then to this cruise, something in the middle, the Star. My wife and I both enjoyed the cruise as a whole, the destinations were very much picture ... Read more

I travelled alone and booked an inside cabin, Deck 11. The embarcation was easy and I didn't have to wait long to board. My cabin was spotless and comfortable though I realised on the first night it is not a good idea to book a cabin under ... Read more

This was the first time cruising with NCL. We had only cruised once previously with Carnival. Well NCL kicked butt on all levels. Embarkation: Their process in procedures in Venice were hands down the most organised, The process was ... Read more

We planned this vacation two years ago, cabins are very comfortable, the restroom very good size, bigger of what I have seen in other cruises. Regarding dining on free restaurants, I would say the food is not of very good quality, so we ... Read more

We decided on this cruise, as the ports were so appealing, we had been to a number previously, but some new ports, and wanted to explore Venice pre-cruise. Great itinerary, but the actual time in the ports was too short. Most ports are ... Read more

As previous reviewers have noted, the itinerary is what drew us to this cruise. I don't know if other lines offer longer times in port, but please take a look if you'd like more than a few hours on land. Embarkation: we took the Ali ... Read more
