Norwegian Star Cruise Review by onepoorguy
- Sail Date: December 2018

- Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Mini-Suite with Balcony
The staff was great. NCL seems to have good luck overall with getting people who are friendly and want to be helpful. The food also was much improved over our last cruise. But still not consistent. Some meals were so-so, others were very good. Specialty restaurants or main dining, it was the hit or miss.
One annoyance was the short port time in both Cabo and Puerto Vallarta. Other cruises spend more time in both ports, and it would have been nice if they gave us more time there on this cruise also.
Final disembarkation seemed very slow. Even when they called various groups there was a long line on the deck, the gangway, and the outside portion of the port building. I can say for sure but I assume some inefficiency somewhere. If we're going to be in line anyway, why call our group? Let the line go down a bit before calling the next group.

Cabo San LucasTwo bay snorkel trip on zodiac. It was a nice trip. The water in the second bay was a bit murky, but still worthwhile. First bay was clearer, but had fewer fish. Staff was really good.View All 1,322 Cabo San Lucas Cruise Port Reviews

Puerto VallartaThis was a nice excursion. A bit of snorkeling, visiting Yelapa and seeing the waterfall, and then a bit of beach relaxing.View All 966 Puerto Vallarta Cruise Port Reviews
