NCL's smoking policy a big flaw
"We were first time cruisers who live within driving distance of Seattle so we drove to the parking structure across the street from the pier and rolled our suitcases (across the train tracks) to the pier where we..."Read More

Most everything about our cruise went well starting with booking the cruise over the phone with NCL staff. The staff was very helpful and not at all pushy. They even provided some assistance concerning our making flight reservations. All of this is important to me as I do not travel very often. We arranged for the NCL transport from airport to Seattle but didn't locate anyone from NCL to direct ...

NCL Star Alaska Cruise 9/17/-9/24 We had a wonderful time on our first Alaska cruise despite the rainy weather. This was our 29th cruise (5th on NCL) but our first one to Alaska. It was just my spouse and I - both 47 years old. We flew from Atlanta to Seattle the night before the cruise and stayed at the Marriott Seattle Riverfront right across from the port. We had dinner at Elliott's ...

Embarkation was quick, easy and efficient. DH has had a stroke which left him with very poor balance. One look at his cane and staff rushed to his aid, took us quickly through the formalities and straight onto the ship. The cabin was small but well organised. I was surprised by the size of the window - perfect for watching the waves towering above us. Did I mention 100mph winds and ...

If you're not fancy people, don't own ball gowns or tuxes and want to eat with your companions, then Norwegians Freestyle Cruising is the way to go! Casual wear, including jeans is our kind of cruise. We cruised on the Norwegian Star to Alaska in late May. We had the best weather, no rain whatsoever. The ports of call were Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Prince Rupert, all were great ports to ...

This was our 14th cruise and the second one on the STAR. We sailed on her inaugural cruise from Miami to the west coast in 2001. For this cruise we brought along 18 people about a fourth of them had never cruised before, the rest had a least one cruise. I am a firm believer that CC members are obliged to write of their experiences for the benefit of all, so even if your experience was ...

Just returned last Saturday from an Alaskan cruise on the Star. Our party consisted of my husband, mother and father in law and husband's aunt in one cabin and my grandparents in an oceanview. I was a little apprehensive and didn't know what to expect as the Star gets some pretty inconsistent reviews. Let me tell you, don't listen to any of the bad ones! We had an amazing time and have ...

Last minute, budget, cruise to Alaska. First time on Norwegian. We were warned both online and off not to expect the service or experience we had with Princess or RCI or even Carnival. So, we came with low expectations. I thought I would post a few thoughts for others who are undecided if Norwegian is worth trying. It was as good as any other cruise in most ways, better than some in others. ...

We thoroughly enjoyed the Star. I had been apprehensive about booking on NCL after reading many negative reviews here, but I was completely satisfied. Here are my impressions: EMBARKATION We got to the port around noon. There were alot of people already in line, but things moved quickly. We were done and on board the ship in around 30 minute. No complaints here. CABIN The ...

I have done 5 other NCL cruises and 16 cruises in total. I would think twice again, before I go on an older ship. It made the difference from a good cruise v a great cruise. I went with one of my friends, this cruise is not geared to singles. It caters to an mature audience. I am over 50 but not quite at the retired stage. I enjoy more activity and nightlife. This ship does not really offer this. ...
