Norwegian Star Cruise Review by feliciabarlow

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Oct 2019
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Mid-Ship Inside

We chose this cruise because we had six other couples going as well. Our 30th wedding anniversary is around this time and we first sailed on a cruise 30 years ago with Norwegian for our honeymoon. We hadn't been on a cruise since then and wanted to celebrate our anniversary with Norwegian.

We were so excited to see Italy, Greece, and most importantly Croatia. We had been watching documentaries about Croatia and was really interested in all of these places. We had never been to any of these locations previously.

We arrived early to our departure city and had a fantastic time. The embarkation went well and smooth. The activities aboard the cruise ship were numerous and entertaining. The food was acceptable and plentiful. The water was expensive to purchase in bottle form, but the unlimited drink package was most helpful!

The staff from restaurant to porter was great! They went above and beyond.

I do not think I would travel on Norwegian for our next cruise until I know that they have their cruise ships maintained and up-to-date. The loss of a port that I purposely booked for was too disappointing and I don't see the ability to go back to see it anytime in the future.

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Inside

The cabin was comfortable, though we were not in there very much. The bathroom was totally fine. The bed was actually very comfortable and very clean daily!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


An amazing experience with great guide and audio equipment. We saw so much of the palace and learned so much!


This was a phenomenal place. We had enough time to really explore and enjoy. The guide was amazing and gave much history.


The tour guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. The city was flooded, but we made it through and saw amazing sights. It was well worth the money to have a guide.


We walked around with friends who had traveled to Italy previously. It was great to see the side streets, canals, and churches on our own with no agenda.


The information was great and the site was wonderful to see.


We never made it to this port due to mechanical issues with the ship. We had a planned excursion as well that was cancelled.
