Review for Norwegian Star to Bermuda

Day One: We awoke very early to catch a 6:00 am Amtrak train to Penn Station. Our local train station is immaculate, with plenty of handicap parking and easy access elevators. Penn Station was not as easy to navigate, elevators were not easy to find. I have mobility/balance issues and I am terrified of escalators, but I was able to go "up" to street level, dragging one of the suitcases (DH ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

My wife and I have never cruised before. My mother has cruised on several different cruise lines, but this was her first time on NCL. We have always been told to expect 5-star service from the cruise line and 5-star food on cruises. We will never cruise with NCL again. We had a suite - supposed to have some benefits The only benefit I saw was the butler and Cagneys for breakfast. The ...

We are a retired couple from Canada, and this is our 25th cruise, having cruised with NCL about 12 times. This was an absolutely amazing fall vacation. We were initially a bit concerned about travelling in October in the Caribbean, and were very fortunate not to have encountered Hurricane Sandy as we were ahead of her when she hit New York. Great warm weather on this cruise, with only rain on ...

Good cruise on Norwegian Star in Oct.

First Time Cruiser • Age 30s

This was our first cruise, so we don't have another cruise experience to compare it to, but we had a good time cruising to Bermuda on the Star in Oct. We LOVED Bermuda and will definitely return, though we'll probably stay at a resort next time rather than taking a cruise. As far as the Star goes, I'm not sure that it was the best fit for us and our travel style. We are a professional couple in ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

I found out that taking a cruise from New York is not a good idea. The worse part is getting to the cruise port. The Taxi driver really don't care how they drive. We were being driven to the cruise port and 7 taxi drivers pulled out in front of us. We were blessed with an exception driver that was able to slam on the brakes at the right time. After getting to the cruise port we had a longer ...

2-5 Cruises • Age 30s

We just came back from NCL Star. I had already travelled with NCL last year and was on the Gem and it also went to Bermuda. I was a little worried that the ship would be old and that I would get bored because everything would be the same as the year before. Although the ship seemed a little older it was perfectly nice/ clean on the inside. The dinning rooms were great. The only thing was the ...

My husband and I decided to do a last minute cruise to Bermuda out of NY. We'd sailed NCL twice before out of NY to Bermuda and were disappointed by service, food and behavior of passengers but decided to give it one more chance. We are delighted we did! Embarkation was fast, easy and efficient...getting us on board within 15 minutes of dropping our luggage at the curb. We didn't arrive at ...

Left Sept 30th from NYC Pier 88 for cruise to Bermuda. Embarkation was relatively easy and quick. Cabin 8572 with an obstructed view was very nice; clean with no excessive wear except the mattresses, which were in need of replacement. Six large drawers plus a large closet with additional shelving inside and over the vanity area provided ample storage. Bathroom was among the nicest I have ...

We have sailed several times with Norwegian Cruise Line over the past 4 years. Our first cruise in1988 was on the long-gone SS Norway (1), and we returned to NCL after cruising with 3 other lines. We've been on the Jewel (4), the Jade (3) and the Epic (3). This was our first time on the Norwegian Star (making it cruise number 12 with NCL) and it was our first time going to Bermuda. We enjoyed the ...

This was our eighth cruise and our sixth with NCL. It was a repositioning cruise departing from New York, luckily the week before the big storm hit that city. As we travelled down the Atlantic, we had no indication of there being a storm as our ship likely sailed around it. From the moment we boarded, we were greeted by outstandingly friendly crew members. These greetings, such as "good ...
