Cabin:

We really enjoyed this cruise with the Panama Canal crossing being the feature.

This was our second cruise with Norwegian so we knew their free style cruising system and feel it suits our style. The Star is a ageing ship and in areas it shows but overall it is still in pretty good condition.

This cruise was featured by a concerted effort by the crew to prevent the spread of the dreaded stomach virus. It was in evidence on the previous cruise to ours so embarkation was delayed as they were attempting to wipe every surface.

Cabin Review

This is not a good cabin option. It is a standard cabin which we found to be very functional but the problem was with the window. We could see out over the lifeboat which was ok except that they are above deck 7 which is lit all night. The curtains don't block all the light so with the light entering all around the curtains you get the impression that it is daylight outside all the time. This stopped us getting a decent nights sleep. I would have preferred a normal ocean view cabin (which we had, and enjoyed previously) or even an inside cabin to this option
