A few guests arrived 40 minutes late and we left without them. Though I didn't like name-calling prior to all-onboard time, this was very reasonable.

We chose this cruise because it was a special gift for one of our daughters. She wanted to see penguins :) and we wanted to go to Antarctica. Well we did not get the chance to step on the continent, but it was an amazing trip full of new adventures. We were in a two bed suite.. I would say the only downside of the room was the creaking :) ( the ship is getting renovated in '24). our room ...

NCL STAR Cruise Chile to Argentina – 1st Jan 2023 The below is a personal view of the above cruise and all comments are a view from the writer. Getting to the port. The departure of the above cruise was on the 1st Jan 2023 from San Antonio Chile. As such no public transport is available on a bank holiday, so booking private shuttles are the only way to get to the port say from Santiago. ...

We chose this cruise because we loved the itinerary...so exciting to sail around the bottom of South America! The Star is in excellent condition thanks to the crew's constant upkeep. It seemed as though we saw painters working every single time we were walking around. The food was excellent with a wide variety to choose from; food service was excellent as well. The onboard entertainment ...

We chose this cruise to visit and learn about a part of world we’ve never been to. In this aspect, the cruise fulfilled our expectations. We were fortunate in that weather co operated with us and our trip around Cape was quite smooth and we only missed one port due to stormy weather…Puerto Madyrn Our concerns about cruise are with NCL…we knew we had many sea days and we had 1 added but in ...

This cruise was part of a tour thru Holiday Vacations. Having taken several cruises with NCL pre-Covid, we were ready to have an amazing experience similar to those in the past. What a disappointment. We purchased the Free at Sea package which included Wi-Fi. At best, the Wi-Fi worked 25% of the time. In order to use the NCL app, which they promote heavily, you needed Wi-Fi. So ...

We loved Norwegian so much that we bought stock and held on to it during the downturn. This cruise would be our 10th with the line, and most expensive to date, but was not a good trip. Two ports were missed due to weather, (not Norwegian's fault!!), but apparently they routinely miss visiting the Falkland Islands, and don't post any specific cautions or warnings about this on the cruise ...

NCL EQUALS NOT MY JOB,NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

We have sailed NCL many times and have never been on such a disfunction and poorly organized cruise. It started at embarkation out of Buenos Aires. There was no line control and contradictory instructions at curbside. The only cars allowed up to the front with luggage were those that paid the guard a bribe. If not passengers had to drag their luggage approximately 100 yards to check in. It did ...

I am a Sapphire level cruiser with NCL. I have enjoyed cruising with them for years. I chose this cruise because I was in Brazil at the time and the cruise departed from Rio de Janeiro. The ship was recently refurbished and was in excellent shape. It is a smaller, older ship, and has few whistles and bells. It was kept immaculately clean. The crew were phenomenal, always friends and caring, ...

NCL Cost Cutting At All Time High

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Our last NCL cruise has shown how they are cutting so much that there is just not much value left in cruising with NCL. The beverage package that most all passengers get for "Free" is not worth the price, we had to pay $605 in service charges for the free package). They have 48 wines by the glass on the wine menu (bottles not allowed with the package) and 38 of them are over the limit for the ...
