The Crew Made All the Difference!

Norwegian Star Cruise Review by hollydaisy

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: the Mexican Riviera
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

The Star may not be the biggest, newest or glitziest of the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet, but it is the Little Ship That Could! We found the crew to be positive, engaging, friendly, and accommodating from top to bottom. We attended the Meet and Greet given by the officers and heard from all of the major departments on board, all were very keen that we bring any concerns to them. I complimented the Food and Beverage lead about how they are now putting Vegetarian and Gluten Free symbols on the menus in the main dining rooms (which he told us was rolled out about 6 months ago), which was very helpful for our party. The buffet had all the food you could ever want, the two main dining rooms were elegant with adequate choices, the specialty restaurants provided that something extra in terms of food and service. Our cabin was large enough for the time we spent in it, and our room steward Joe was super sweet. Shore excursions were just what we wanted and needed. Never had to look too far to find an available lounge chair on deck, which has been an issue on previous cruises. The greatest compliment I could pay is that I would immediately get back on board and do it again.

Cabin Review

Cabin BC 9520

Just large enough and balcony was perfect with two chairs and a little table. Bed was very comfy.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Los Angeles

A great port to start from, Embarkation was very quick and easy.

Puerto Vallarta

We booked our own day pass at Secrets Resort, because none of the offered excursions appealed to us.

A brief harbor cruise with some Mazatlan history, then a brief tractor cart ride to Stone Island, a rustic beach with a lovely Mexican lunch provided. Extra charge to get chairs on the beach, we would have loved if they also rented lounge chairs. Beach vendors were a bit of a distraction but not too pushy.

Perfect relaxing 1/2 day at Breathless Cabo, really nice buffet and pool area. Too bad our day in Cabo was so short!
