Norwegian Star Cruise Review by Julslovestotravel
- Sail Date: October 2019
- Destination: Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Mini-Suite with Balcony
We bid for an upgrade and ended up in a Mini Suite Balcony which was amazing on every level. Staff was fantastic. Super friendly and helpful. The only difficulty or negative thing for us was the dinning room. We found the service very impersonal and very slow. The food was barely warm by the time we got it. We only went twice and chose to go to the buffet every time after. The buffet was fantastic, on par with the other cruises we have done. The Pub was fabulous as well. Entertainment was average, pool area fun and easygoing. The ship, the bathrooms, hallways etc...were all super clean. We love seeing staff all around cleaning. (This shows they want to keep germs and bugs at bay.) The excursions we booked were great other than a couple of them seemed a bit rushed. All in all absolutely beautiful Ports of Call. Their future cruise credits you can purchase are a good value and you have 4 years to use them. Make sure you look into all the ways to benefit most from them. We do have other cruises booked with NCL. One on the Dawn for an upcoming Western Caribbean and another on the Epic with Southern Caribbean.
Research your ships and decide if the deal, itinerary and ship are what you are looking for. There are so very many options out there.
We are happy enough with NCL and there fantastic promos to keep cruising with them.
Remember you get what you pay for!

Argostoli (Kefalonia)Absolutely completely loved this island. Our favorite for sure. The tour was amazing. Went to the underground cave/boat ride and then toured island more with a stop at a charming little village for an hour. Simply fantastic.View All 96 Argostoli (Kefalonia) Cruise Port Reviews

KotorOur port of call into Kotor got cancelled, however we came along side Bar Montenegro for a technical stop and it was beautiful. The setting sun lit up the mountains like fire. We got some amazing family photos with that backdrop.View All 731 Kotor Cruise Port Reviews

SantoriniBeautiful scenery, Very rushed. Food at celebration was terrible for the cost of the celebration. The restaurant was lovely and the view breath taking though. The drop off was way far away from the cable car we were taking down. This excursion should be rated a 3 not a 2 for activity level. (A lot of hills and walking)View All 13,326 Santorini Cruise Port Reviews
