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 ...
South America on the Norwegian Star
This trip was pretty fantastic! The smaller, older Norwegian ships are far preferable to the gigantic, crowded mega-ships, in my opinion!
This is what we liked about our South American voyage on the Star: (1) The ship was nicely quiet in most places. There was not annoying music playing in the hallways and public venues. (2) One lovely thing about the ...
The Panama canal has been a bucket list trip for me for years and this one was priced right so I took it. Overall I had a great time. Going through the Panama canal was very well done with Panamanian official on board giving timely reports over the intercom as to what we were seeing.
Just keep in mind that the Star is an older ship and will not compare to the newer ones in the fleet. If you ...
We did the back to back Norwegian cruise, leaving Miami and ending in Buenos Aires.
The restaurant, cabin and cruise director staff was AMAZING. The on and off cruise systems were horrible. Causing hours and hours of waiting in line on ship, and being out money.
ADMINISTRATION WAS A NIGHTMARE.
Things I wish I knew as a cruiser.
* Keep all receipts and if any concern email vs. ...
We were planning on a trip to Barcelona for week and decided to try a transatlantic experience. Barcelona is great city and we had a great week. Having read previous reviews, we realized that the Star was an older ship that had a refurbishment, so we knew it wouldn't be perfect. All in all, it's not one of the best, but it is pretty good ship.
We had a mini suite which had a couple of nice ...
First get a email when leaving Florida to got to Venice Italy that ports have been canceled and hours taken for or their ports. Shop was supposedly broke. Tipped on it side going in to port dishes flying off the shelf. If you like to be bored go on NCL star. And for cancel the ports they gave us fifty dollars a person . Room had a leak wet our clothes o e good thing was our clothes got clean. ...
Wait until we have already checked in our luggage. Join a line. Then get handed a letter listing itinerary changes. TO LATE TO CANCEL THE CRUISE WITHOUT LOSING 100%.
We have been on the Norwegian Star before and always regarded NCL as the best cruise line we have ever been on. Recommended it to all our relations & friends.
Well, NOT THIS TIME!
The itinerary changes were atrocious to say ...
I had never been on a cruise and I wanted to get that experience under my belt. When my daughter took a first cruise to the Mediterranean with friends, I decided I would book a cruise. Visiting Venice had also been on my list of things to do and this cruise helped me kill 2 birds with one stone. My DH, our son and his girlfriend completed the group.
Getting on was a breeze because we waited ...
I loved the atmosphere
Fact that you could go to any restaurant besides specialty dining for dinner no specific time for dinner I love that.
The casino was great the main floor with guest services was great. All of the different Resturant my the cruise very interesting
The entertainment for cruise and the sugar cane mosquito bar was great Novi from the bar was a great host and server ...
This was our first family cruise with the two kids and didn't really know what to expect. If you want formality, sophistication, all the modern facilities and total luxury then this isn't for you. Luckily we wanted a nice atmosphere, lots of choice on where to eat/drink, a great set of stops and entertainment for the kids.....all which were delivered.
Kids clubs - couldn't say ...
