Norwegian Star Cruise Review by Christmastreesover

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2016
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Inside

The weather was gorgeous! The ports were wonderful. I only wish that we were told that Costa Maya had a shallow pool within the court yard right at the port to cool off in. No one told me that we could take our swim suits and enjoy the swim up bar or even wade in the beautiful pool right there as we were shopping in the marketplace! That would have made things much easier! We thoroughly enjoyed the Play Mia Beach Break in Cozumel! It is spotlessly clean, had a very nice buffet that is delicious and the service is second to none! Every employee works very hard and keeping the entire resort very clean and cannot do enough for the customers! I would recommend this to anyone!

The Norwegian Star is no where near as pretty as the Norwegian Jade! The market café looks just like that...it is no more than a school cafeteria. On Norwegian Jade there were endless islands of delicious food and many choices to pick from. The Star needs some updates! The ship looks very worn. That being said, Aqua restaurant was delicious and Neyla (the assistant M'atre de) was the kindest and most loving employee that took the time with my family! She learned our names and went out of her way to see that we were enjoying our cruise! In Versailles restaurant Louis (the M'atre de) was fabulous! What a wonderful smile to greet us each time we ate there! Marlon (the restaurant manager) was so kind and genuine with his efforts to make things right for us! I love all three of them!

The cabin was clean but showed its wear!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Belize City

Just off the strip of the marketplace is scary! Just get off the ship and stay close, shop and then return to safety on the ship!

Costa Maya

I would advise to let the cruisers know that there is a very nice pool to cool off in right in the center of the marketplace that has a swim up bar! It would have been nice to know that we could wear our swimwear and enjoy the gorgeous weather and at least wade in the water!


Spotlessly clean, delicious buffet, awesome service, delicious drinks! So worth every penny! Services available to everyone from hair braiding, to fish pedis, to snorkeling, to paddle boats, to wave runners, to kayaking, to relaxing, to swimming, to hiking..........Fabulous place!


My daughter loved it! She saw so much! She said the service was safe and had an awesome time!


The weather was gorgeous! The water was clear! The snorkeling was amazing! The buffet was not good at all!


The airport terminal was very convenient and easy to get through.
