  3. Norwegian Star
We had a great time on our cruise! The weather was perfect (except for the last sea day...but, Norwegian doesn't control that!). We have been on ships this size and on mega ships. Although there is a lot more to do on the huge ships, we like the ease of the smaller ones. This cruise was during the week of Christmas. The ship was decorated with trees, lights and gingerbread houses. The caroling sing-along in the atrium on Christmas Eve was beautiful. The food in the Main Dining Rooms was hot and more flavorful than on previous cruises. We enjoyed Cagney's twice, but Moderno wasn't as good as in the past. The time between the servers with the skewers was too long; our side dishes were cold by the time the second server arrived. Our cabin steward was excellent, as were the casino bartenders. The staff, in general, was warm and welcoming.

Every cruise is what you make of it!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Whale Watching
    We were lucky: perfect weather and multiple whale sightings. The boat is new, and the crew was terrific. We saw several pods of whales, including full breaches.

  • ATV Tour
    First of all, the guides were very nice and did their best. However, the excursion was a disappointment. We spent way more time in a bus and on dusty, dirty roads than we did on the actual beach. The "restaurant" on the beach was an old canopy. There was no time to swim. I feel like we wasted a day. You win some, you lose some. The drive there was not pleasant, but the ride back was along the beautiful boardwalk.

  • Sea Lion Encounter
    You can tell that the staff cares for the animals. The sea lions are adorable! The buffet lunch was good.
