Who wants to plan their 1 cruise to South America on a ship this unreliable?

Thankfully the NCL Star didn't break down until we reached the Falkland Islands(cruise day 11), but who wants to plan their 1 cruise to South America on a ship that is mechanically this unreliable? One year ago when I saw this cruise choice my only hesitation was the ship, not the cruise line, as my family had cruised on the Star previously in 2014. Knowing that the ship died in the Tasman Sea ...

The cruise was great although the ports left a lot to be desired. I don’t understand why ncl would pick ports such as these. I loved the ship, but the ports were run down and not near anything. I took a bus into one of the towns, as soon as I got off the bus I was told by 3 local policemen it was not safe to walk around the area alone. So why would the ship bring us to such a dangerous place ?? ...

-Confusing ship with not all elevators to all decks. -Salad area of buffet limited selection. -Changed ports a few weeks prior to departure but not all guests notified. -Entertainment and music were good. -Internet cafe wide open on a balcony over a noisy area. Last evening tried to checkin for flight home but could not get online. No one available to help. -embarkation was ...

We found out two days before the cruise that we were not going to two of the destinations at all and all of the other port times have been altered considerably to be shorter due to a mechanical problem with our ship. Doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the safety of the boat. No offer to reschedule or change to another cruise which we couldn’t do anyway because when we found out we were ...

Cons Significant itinerary change was the largest issue and made 2 days prior, 2 At Sea days were added for a total of 3 days. Santorini and Kotor were cancelled due to ships mechanical issues (they told us they lost an engine.) They shaved off 1-2 hours per port as well. We received $100 credit and 20% off future cruise. Incredibly disappointing. Lines for everything. Leaving out of ...

This was to be partners wonderful 70th birthday cruise culminating in Santorini, sadly, not to be. :/ Despite some pre-cruise issues, our taxi delivered us to Venice Cruise terminal without incident. We got in line and a nice Australian lady and her mother turned to us and said, 'Have you heard about the itinerary change? we hadn't and knew nothing of it, until we were literally in the line to ...

Interrupted Trip due to lack of proper maintenance of engines, missed port!

We chose this cruise because we had six other couples going as well. Our 30th wedding anniversary is around this time and we first sailed on a cruise 30 years ago with Norwegian for our honeymoon. We hadn't been on a cruise since then and wanted to celebrate our anniversary with Norwegian. We were so excited to see Italy, Greece, and most importantly Croatia. We had been watching documentaries ...

We were able to get on the ship in literally less than 10 minutes. The ship was pretty clean, but there was trash and empty glasses that were left out on regular occasions. O’sheehans staff was rude and on two different dining occasions we had to find a manager to get drink refills. The specialty restaurants were ok, but La Cucina was horrible on this cruise. The dining was as usual ...

Cancelled the most important port

We booked this cruise and were so excited to see Dubrovnik Croatia. The ship had engine problems causing the cancellation of Dubrovnik. We had been waiting o eat a year for this cruise and my boys first visit to Europe. A $100 credit is an insult. Our cabin was the smallest cabin I have ever had and was a large family cabin- what a joke. Our cabin steward did give us an ice bucket nor ice til ...
