We chose Norwegian Star because of the high ratings and referrals from family members whom had previously cruised with Norwegian.

Our adventure began in Venice where we arrive a day ahead of departure to give us a chance to acclimate to the time change and explore the historical city. Venice was MAGICAL. Yes, there were many tourists, but the heart of the city, the local people, the architecture, art, food, music, warmth in the air, color of the WATER, all combined to create an experience like no other. This was our first trip to Europe so it was all very new to us and we loved every minute.

The Norwegian Staff and crew were courteous and accommodating in every way possible. Special 5 star shout out to RONALD our Steward.

All embarkation and disembarkation were carried out beautifully and with ease.

My favorite adventures were from the scheduled Shore Excursions. They enabled us to get a more informed history and see things that have memorable impact. My only regret is they the Santorini excursion although overall was lovely, we felt rushed and would have liked to have spent more time over dinner with a smaller group.

The Entertainment offered was truly extraordinary. We enjoyed it all.

We were more than satisfied with all of the meals we were able to enjoy at the "preferred" restaurants. The food in other dining rooms was average and they seemed very understaffed. To be specific in the Aqua and the Pub.

We would have also liked to see more of the local fare from areas we were sailing through.

Lovely and very accomodating. Comfortable bedding and washroom.

Oia Wine Tasting

Wished there was more time spent at the dinner. Because of the amount of people it felt rushed. Barely had time to eat before they started the dancing. If the group had been smaller it would have felt more relaxed.
