April 2013- Norwegian Star- Embarkation- Port of New Orleans, LA After around 20 cruises with various cruise lines, we pretty much know what to expect. We didn't like having to park our vehicle in the open lot at the port. My husband needed to take oxygen and a scooter on this trip. The crew members were very attentive during the embarkation process and throughout the cruise. We had an inside ...

Where to start? The first night there was a madi gras parade - really? It was a video (a poor one at that)in the main lobby of a madi gras parade and it was down hill from there. The most criticism I have is of the food service and quality in the Versailles dining room and the buffet. Almost every night we had to wait 30-45 minutes to be seated in the main dining room, while some big mouthed broad ...

Last month my wife and I did a 16 day transatlantic cruise on Norwegian Star from New Orleans to Copenhagen. We are a couple in our mid seventies and have done four previous transatlantic cruises, all with RCCL. We were anxious to see how NCL would compare. The price was certainly right. After taking advantage of all the discounts and special offers that we could find we ended up paying $105 a ...

4/19 Pre Cruise Report from New Orleans The Drury Inn is very nice. Afternoon reception had 3 drinks per person (full bar) and wide variety of hors d'verves. For dinner, we met Jorge & Dawn, Hank & Florence, Gary & Joycie and Gary (Levoyageur) at Mandina's restaurant, a long time Italian eatery with a Cajun twist which was recommended by our local cruise mate, Jorge. It was wonderful breaking ...

I didn't know what to expect from a cruise having never been on one. It was completely different than what I thought it would be. I'd read how difficult the Port of New Orleans terminal is to navigate and what a problem it is to get to from I-10. It is neither of those things. Read and follow the instructions on the Port of New Orleans website and there are no problems getting to the Julia ...

This was our second cruise on NCL and went from New Orleans to Copenhagen, Denmark leaving on April 21, 2013 for a 16-day transatlantic cruise. We decided to upgrade to a Family Suite about 1-½ weeks prior to departure, which was well worth the extra $484.00 above the mini suite we had booked. Within this review I will address, service, cabin and ship cleanliness, dining, entertainment, ...

This review is a little late but as I was planning my next cruise and reading all of the amazing reviews, I realized I never provided one from our Caribbean cruise in April of 2013. My sister and I wanted to go on a cruise for a "girls trip." We were a little apprehensive about a cruise as our only experience before hadn't been so good for either one of us. After reading the reviews, we decided to ...

We used the Ramada Inn-Metarie in the New Orleans area for a Park,Cruise,Fly option on this extended 26 night trip. They were great. We stayed the night before and they took us to the Port, kept our vehicle safe without any extra charge and then picked us up at the airport and we stayed that night, all for normal room rates with great service. It had been a few years since we last sailed on ...

6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

This repositioning cruise was so cheap we couldn't resist: a little over $1000 per person for 16 days in a balcony cabin. But we also love sea days, and a repositioning cruise is full of them. Although it did seem that Norwegian had skimped on entertainment, the food was similar to other Norwegian cruises. We don't like freestyle dining and prefer to have a fixed dining time, table, and waiter. ...

This was our third Transatlantic crossing with NCL, and our favourite so far. The Star certainly lives up to it`s name. In my opinion, the "stars" of the ship are the amazing crew,so friendly and helpful. Everyone must have an off day sometimes, but you wouldn`t notice,they were always smiling! The ship is just the right size for us, not too big or small and we found it easy to get around. We had ...
