Our friends who we cruise with every couple of years suggested this cruise and we loved the itinerary and wanted to try the Star. We did this cruise back to back with the Caribbean cruise after this one. Embarkation in Civvi was very easy; we were not in the suites waiting area long at all, the concierge basically said welcome, and a butler came by and escorted us onto the ship. He took us to ...

This fall my husband and I traveled from Rome to Miami on a repositioning cruise on the Norwegian Star. We had traveled on the Star before and had not liked the layout of the ship because it lacked quiet bar areas for reading and viewing the ocean. Norwegian touted a complete renovation of this ship so we thought we would give it another try. Quiet space was harder than ever to come by. More ...

i cruised on this ship november 2018 shortly after it came out of its dry dock from rome to miami, the ship had to change one of it's crankshafts for one of its engines, this worked out great since we had 2 1/2 days in spain we missed the next island because of a storm but it was worth being in Spain that length of time, ncl did a great job with the dry dock, i liked that they took out the kids ...

We are using up our cruise deposits as we are not sailing with Norwegian after that.The prices have gone up drastically as if a premium cruise line when they are just a budget line and the quality has gone down. The party band are the worst I have ever heard having done over 35 cruises, the staff and ship are great but if you are booking I would change to another ship. There are many other ...

Not your typical cruise

Due to weather we missed one port which could not be avoided I guess. Disappointed with entertainment. Production company and Russian arial act only decent evening entertainment. Lady violinist should have had prime time and put juggler, hypnotist, magic act and others during afternoon. Producers need to watch America’s Got Talent and recruit entertainers as what we saw was amateurish. Miss crew ...

Disappointing ship

We chose this cruise to travel with friends, and specifically for the Funchal port which we ended up missing. This was probably not the cruise lines fault, but we could have made better use of our Barcelona time if we had known in advance about the repairs that they were doing. Overall the biggest disappointment on this ship was the food, followed by the service level, and finally the overall ...

I chose this cruise because I wanted to experience a Europe to the States crossing. I had made the crossing three times before in the other direction and wanted to experience the opposite this time. Embarkation was smooth but stressful for me because my airline lost my luggage in Madrid while I went on to Rome to catch the ship! I must say, however, that everyone I met onboard from my cabin ...

Transatlantic Cruise- first time I have done this. I read the reviews prior to departure and it was mixed so I had an open miind. I am here to say that this is a bad ship and they earned every part of it. Entertainment was the best. Dining rooms were nice, good food and friendly staff but a little slow. The Garden Cafe food was bad as was the service. The cruise director should be unplugging ...

I wanted to try a transatlantic crossing, and this Rome to Miami cruise looked great. I had not cruised on NCL, but thought i'd give them a try. Earlier this year i did a 20 day cruise on Holland america and they were great! The first problem I encountered was before the cruise. They have packaged deals for dining in the specialty dining rooms, otherwise several of them have ala carte ...
