NCL Star, 9/16

Where do I begin? We booked nearly last minute and was told there was a possibility for an upgrade. We paid for an outside cabin and got one with a completely obstructed view, as a life boat was directly put the window. We asked if we could pay for an upgrade to a balcony and were told to keep coming back the next day. After 3 days we gave up. However, they did upgrade 2 from winning Bingo! ...

Awful NCL Star

Awful ship. Cabins are extremely small and worn out. Mold growing in shower and could not turn around in incredible small bathroom. Room steward never cleaned the room. Started dirty and stayed that way. Food is the worse I've ever had on a cruise and I've gone on 30+. I actually lost weight on this cruise! Entertainment is the same old worn out shows and everything else cost extra. If you ...

We chose this cruise for the port stops it would be making, we wanted to see Norway, but not exclusively, and my husband really wanted to go to Iceland too. I had read some awful reviews about the Norwegian Star, terrible service, no bartenders to wait on you, grumpy employees on the ship, the ship looking very worn, mediocre food. Let me just say, this was the most upbeat crew we'd ...

This is my third Cruise Critic review, the previous ones were for Island Princess Mediterranean/Transatlantic passage from Venice to Ft. Lauderdale and the second one was on Celebrity Constellation, an Italy & Croatia Cruise round trip from Venice. As with them, what you will read expresses our personal experiences, feelings, sensations (as well as some advice), that you might agree with or not ...

I set up some specifics for the agent and what I got was this trip. I guess everything was based on selling as much as possible. What I missed most onboard was a small armchair in my room. There were no chair onboard where you could just sit without having to buy something. Buy, buy, buy that seemed to be the motto. The free caffee was not good. I gues about 20% of the food was made onboard. The ...

Never fun to be overrun by the ship staff both in corridors on ship and for shuttle seating. The trickery of "free draws" leading you believe they are giving away the jewelry item you are guessing the size of then discovering it's actually a bottle of perfume -well, draw your own conclusion there. Of high note is the staffer comment in an incredulous voice as cruisers expressed being duped was, ...

We had wanted to do this trip for years and when we saw the trip we booked almost 12 months in advance as we were cruising in the Caribbean. We started with a 5 day stay in Copenhagen at a beautiful small hotel. We met cruisers who had disembarked from the Baltic Cruise days earlier who keyed us in about the NCL Star. This ship is not a jumbo type, maybe 2000 passengers. We embarked at ...

Good Trip; Ports We Had Never Been To Before

I like the size of the Star, we were on it last year in the Baltic also. I love the SPA. The food is fairly good with rather slow service in the main dining room. I am not a buffet fan so only wandered up there occasionally where the food selection was actually much better. The staff on the ship is good and they were all looking forward to getting back to Florida. Seemed most of them ...

NCL doesn't offer this itinerary often, so when I saw it I canvassed my friends and relatives for a travel partner. My sister-in-law came with me--her first cruise ever. We had a blast. The ports! Embarked in Copenhagen, then stopped at Amsterdam, southern England (Stone Hinge), County Cork (Blarney Castle), Dublin (Guinness warehouse), Belfast (Giant's Causeway), Inverness, Edinburg, then ...

This itinerary includes departure from Copenhagen, Denmark, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, England (Portland, Falmouth, and Dover), Ireland (Cork, Dublin, and Belfast) and Scotland (Invergordon and Edinburgh). This was our 2nd embarkation at Copenhagen. Take the train from the airport to the Central Train Station near Tivoli Gardens to save an expensive cab fare. There are several hotels in this ...
