Norwegian Star Cruise Review by bmarder

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2020
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Balcony

The cruise had a wonderful itinerary. Norwegian offered excellent excursions. The passengers were interesting and came from USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Germany, and South America. We made many new friends. The cabin was immaculate as was the ship, and the staff was wonderful. We were scheduled to stay for the next cruise (booked back-to-back cruises) from Santiago to Cape Canaveral when all cruises were abruptly cancelled and we learned we needed to disembark the next day at the end of this cruise. Staff assisted us with free computers and free Internet so we could book a flight home. We paid $65 bus ticket to the airport-of course we did not want to leave....the ship was healthy and so were the ports we visited. We felt less safe leaving the ship...now we are home self quarantined in case the airports in Santiago or NYC and Boston, MA had any traces of coronavirus. We feel fortunate to have completed the 14 day cruise we took, and we will continue to cruise with NCL in the future when the world is healthy again!

Cabin Review


We had a port side balcony midship forward. The cabin was adequate-bed comfy-I requested and got foam egg crates on mattress for my back comfort. The cabin design was a bit awkward because the closet door was opposite the bathroom door. So someone in the bathroom had to wait for someone getting something out of the closet to come out. Storage was tight. More wall hooks would have been good for robes and bathing suits etc. There were two hooks. Also only one electric outlet-I had an adapter plug with me so could plug in more things...

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Amazing day well organized-loved the penguins up close and personal.

Photographers dream! Lunch was best meal of entire trip! Gorgeous scenery...catamaran on emerald lake and then trek through scenic waterfalls and lava rock.
