Sail Date: Mar 2017
Cabin: Balcony

The ship visited some great ports. This was the second leg of a 57 day cruise on the Norwegian Star. Embarkation off the ship as a transit passengdr was very badly managed. We had the Internet package and as we expected from reviews, it was very slow and many minutes wasting logging on. We missed quiet spaces like the lovely observation lounge we had on the Sun. People were often taking up seats in the food areas to play cards. Norwegian still allow ppl to save seats/loungers at the poolside by leaving their towels and books despite their rule that seats cannot be reserved for more than an hour which in itself is a ridiculouslyrics long time. The meals were generally very good but I would not recommend O'sheehans except for a couple of their specials and a late night drink. Our cabin steward Emil was awesome. He had an eye for detail and had everything in our cabin topped up before we ever had to ask.

Cabin Review

Balcony

Cabin BC

The cabin was noisy the entire trip as the balcony door was out of alignment. Stuffing paper at the top of the door at least stopped the rattle but the noise of the sea was constant day and night. They did put a seal in which made no difference. The shower space is great but I guess at the expense of space in the toilet which was very cramped.
