Sail Date: Apr 2023

I had quite good experiences with NCL Breakaway & NCL EPIC. So this time I had no doubt chosen NCL. Actually I didn't read carefully about the size of this ship NCL Star, I bet I would never chose it.

First night, me & my husband embarked around 5pm. After half an hour unpacked, we planned having dinner in the Aqua Dining Room for our first meal in the ship. Omg, so disappointed, we ordered sirloin steak medium rare and new York steak medium rare as well. Both are like soaked in the salty water, toooooooo salty. We heard the tables beside us were complaining and the chef apologized. Then we didn't finish with any dessert and with fully hope at the Garden Cafe on 12/F., unfortunately I took 2 slices of sirloin, it's hard like shoes soles. Definitely both of us decided eating only fruit, vegetables & cheese only, but the apples are rotten. Our first night impressions & experience were too bad.

The days after we tried Ginza for our lunch, we have ordered sweet & sour pork, it tastes horrible, extremely sour and the pork is not crispy. When we were so disappointed, we found O'Shaneena & Versailles are only 2 restaurants we can trust.

A long way to walk, it's difficult for seniors and disability persons.
