Norwegian Star Review.

We have cruised with Princess, RC, Carnival, and Celebrity. This was our first cruise with NCL. We were very impressed with this cruise line. This cruise was from Dec 21, 2019 in San Antonio to Jan 4, 2020 in Buenos Aires.


Cabin Review


The balcony cabin layout is well designed. Even though there is slightly less room space, the partitioned bathroom area has the best layout seen. The closet layout is well organized and allow to store the suitcases inside. It does not have the cumbersome coffee table that is seldom used, allowing more space in the cabin. It offers one electrical outlet each for US/EU/UK. If you want to use all three, please bring one adapter for each outlet. The bed lamps have USB charging outlets next to the switch, and there are other USB connectors next to the AC outlets. The cabin is very comfortable for a couple. The soundproofing could be better. You can hear the adjoining cabins if they speak loudly or turn their TV volumes loud. Be mindful when using the TV or talking aloud. WiFi is slow. For laundry service in this cruise, there were three days when they offer to wash everything that can fit in the bag for $19.99. The Cabin Steward kept the cabin clean and they sanitized the door and hallway handles. If you want to get the best view from your balcony, please choose the side of the ship that will face inland, depending on the route.
