Sleepless Nights and Bad Food

We recently did an eleven day southern Caribbean cruise on the Star. We had an outside cabin with an ocean view. The 1st night was ok, but the 2nd, 3rd and 4th we could not get any sleep because of something banging on the outside bulkhead. I called guest services and nothing was resolved. The banging stopped for 2 nights then a different noise like a heavy line or cable rubbing against the side ...

First Time Cruiser

Age 30s

Being a newly married couple (just two weeks before we boarded the ship) we were very excited to start our honeymoon. We booked a crusie becuase we though it would be nice for us to be alone and go travel together. We started our cruise like everyone else, waiting in a line that never seemed to end. By the time we got to the counter we had been waiting for almost an hour and a half, but its ...

First, the good. Loved the captain (Mattias?). Also, the entertainment around the ship was very enjoyable as well as some of the game shows. The bad? Food was fair but nothing to get excited about. No 24 hour dining any more unless you pay for it. Specialty restaurants were good though. Production shows were excellent, except but they are still doing some the same shows from last year and ...

This was a free cruise that we won from Hard Rock Casino. We pay the port fee's and the taxes on a interior room. There was an upgrade available so we took it, ocean view. That came with 2 free options, we choose the beverage package and the dining package. So the free cruise now has increased a little over the free, port fee's, taxes, surcharges, dining gratuities, beverage gratuities, sunlight, ...

This is our fourth cruise. It is the first time with Norwegian. Given this experience we would not chose to cruise with Norwegian again. Pros: Ticket fare was very reasonable. Port of Tampa easy to board and disembark. Shipboard entertainment was enjoyable. Cons: Lack of public, quiet, reading areas. The library was the only space to do so and it was located without windows ...

This was a highly anticipated cruise that was very disappointing. The ship was older and quite worn, the staff seemed stressed and tired and not all that friendly and the food was sub-par. Not to mention our uncomfortable beds. Wandering around the ship, we saw tissues on the floors, and rips on carpets. The chairs in the theatre area had lost their support. We were not the only ones who felt ...

We returned on March 20, 2016 from the Star. The embarkation was fine, got to our room and typically the room steward is around to introduce himself. He was not there, in fact we never saw him the whole week on the cruise. Not even a clue as to his name. I have never had this happen before. The room was kept up, and I left notes and he brought what we needed, but it was just weird. The ...

Lack of Service Across the Board

This was our first cruise on Norwegian. We have sailed twice on Royal Caribbean, once on Carnival, and once on Holland. We wanted a quick, inexpensive winter getaway. Unfortunately, we got more of the inexpensive service than we had hoped for. Service across the board was lacking, from the very first day. Restaurant service was inattentive, there was a general lack of bar service anywhere on the ...

Easily the worst cruise line I have been on (out of Carnival and Royal Caribbean). The service was terrible. Aside from not being friendly, much of the staff is rude. You can tell these guys know they are getting their tips no matter what (or so they think... more of that later). The waiters are there to take your order and that is about it. Be prepared to have none of your drinks refilled the ...
