I chose this Latin American cruise because I had a very memorable experience with Gate1 Discovery guided tour last year and I wanted to re-trace my path with my wife from Buenos Aires to Strait of Magellan in Chile, with extension to P. Chacabuco, Puerto Montt and Santiago. With the other cruise ships I have luxuriated myself with Steam and Dry sauna free of charge. NCL Star on the other hand ...

We picked the NCL Star as my wife and I have sailed on 4 other NCL ships with good experiences. The main reason for sailing was the excellent itinerary. We generally found the Star to be poorly laid out with little or no "quiet" space where you could sit of and relax. There is no observation lounge as this was apparently removed to be replaced with more cabins. GETTING ON AND ...

This is my 2nd NCL cruise and I would say they did a good job generally but I might have had a better experience with a smaller ship on maybe an Oceania ship. NCL gets you there and sells you the excursions - at inflated prices- for you to get the feel of the country. Oceania gets you closer to a city port, avoiding tendering, gives you a substantive lecture pre-arrival so you have some feel for ...

I chose this cruise because my family and some friends were going on a reunion. The cruise was simply amazing. The staff was friendly and professional and they always followed up with our requests. Our stateroom housekeepers always kept our room clean and provided soap and other items when I asked for them. The food and services were excellent. My family and I always ate our meals in the buffet or ...

Norwegian to Guests: "You will be taking this cruise despite broken down ship"

We went into this cruise with high expectations. We are Norwegian Platinum members and are no strangers to cruising, having also cruised on Princess, MSC, and Royal Caribbean. Norwegian has been, to now, our go-to cruise line. We thought we were booking a Greek Isles cruise, but what we got was a cruise of the Dalmatian Coast. As the reader may have already discovered from other reviews, the ...

We booked our cruise for an itinerary that included Kotor. We never stopped at Kotor, nobody gave us explanations neither apolagized. Our whole itinerary was changes, they reduced hours at the islands. The service is extremely poor. This cruise line does not know how to treat a customer. The internet was off for a whole day and nobody apoligized or did anything. I had to call and go several ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

We booked with Norwegian because our family members had had several positive experiences on previous cruises. our cruise was not the same caliber as previous cruises and several guests agreed. Upon boarding the ship, there was no welcome party. No special greeting. We just went to our room. There were less events available. Dining rooms are open for breakfast but they should be open for luch as ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

We have always talked about going on a cruise. My wife had been on quite a number of cruises and she was excited about going on a Mediterain cruise for the first time. Bookings of flights was not correct until brought to the attention of NCL. At one time our travel agent was told that NCL is a Cruise company and not n airline, which I told my agent that they should not offer air travel with ...

Riddled with bedbug bites!

Awful experience! I had my body covered in bedbug bites two days after getting on the boat! It ruined my holidays! They downgraded us to a different room which by the way they said it had also been cleaned off bedbugs! They washed my clothes and ruined quite a few of them! They said they had to spray our shoes and sent them all back in our suitcases all together in a ball without any ...

Greek Isle Smaller Ship Positive Experience

I wanted to visit the Greek Isles and this cruise ship had the best itinerary. A group of 13 booked this cruise. I was a bit concerned that it was an older ship from the NCL fleet but was extremely happy with the ship size, public areas and very helpful and friendly staff. The ship never felt cramped like on the newer NCL mega ships. Many of the venues on the ship are used for different ...
