Enjoyed my time aboard the Star!

We Enjoyed Ourselves on NCL Star, Some Minor Issues

Decided to take the family on a cruise during spring break, which was a little earlier than most, so we were able to get closer to off-season pricing. What was really exciting is that they had great deals when we ...

The Crew Made All the Difference!

The Star may not be the biggest, newest or glitziest of the Norwegian Cruise Line fleet, but it is the Little Ship That Could! We found the crew to be positive, engaging, friendly, and accommodating from top to ...

This was our first time ever on a cruise. We got a great deal, so we ended up booking the family suite. It happened to come with a concierge and butler. We thought that was pretty cool, except the concierge was ...

First cruise, ok but a little disappointing

To start, let me just say this was my first cruise. So it’s difficult for me to give an accurate review when I really don’t have anything else to compare it to. That being said I can give facts of what happened ...

Beautiful Ship!

This was a family vacation and overall we had a lot of fun. We made the best of it even though there was a few downsides. The ship was really cold so we froze in the halls, eating areas and restaurants and we ...

For the most part this was a good value and fun cruise for myself and 2 younger boys. We did the carribean cruise 2 years ago on the Dawn and it didn’t seem to have the same exceptional service as before. Food was ...

This was easily the worst cruise I've ever been on

I told my wife, who had never been on a cruise, that cruising is fun for several reasons: good to excellent food (and lots of it!), fun shows and activities, and night club style dancing. At least that's been my ...
