Cruise ruined despite best efforts of crew.

Very disappointed with this ship

This ship is just not comfortable. Firstly our outside cabin was very small and required the double bed to be separated to have any room at all. Also there was no comfortable lounge in the cabin as there usually is, instead there was a hard backed vinyl chair. You had to be quite agile to manage the constricted toilet. In summary too small and uncomfortable. Secondly the ship has no inside lounge ...

We chose this cruise only for the ports of calls. We have had less than stellar experience with NCL in the past but thought we would try them again. Only to confirm our thoughts of NCL not the choice of cruise lines we would choose again. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The port of calls were amazing. But the Star ship definitely has been neglected terribly. The food was edible but ...

We flew all the way from New York for this cruise, which was supposed to take us from Singapore to Hong Kong, via numerous stops in Thailand and Vietnam. Instead, the ship lost an azipod as we were pulling out of Singapore. (For all we know, the azipod may have been on the blink before we boarded!!) We spent three days in the harbor within sight of Singapore. Then the ship finally continued at a ...

We had experienced one cruise previously, on the Jewel, so that is all I can compare to. Despite several itinerary changes due to a failed azipod drive, more days at sea, no Thai stop and no website excursions, we were still attracted by the extra stop off days in Vietnam. After boarding we found in our cabin a list of excursions to choose. What looked like two days at Ho Chi Minh City ...

We have cruised aboard the NCL Star before and this cruise had the usual friendly yet often terrible service. Even in the specialty restaurants NCL expected one server to serve our party of ten along with another table of 4, 6 or 8. It is impossible for anyone to serve food to 14 to 18 people and keep up with demanding drinkers on the drink package. Dinners often lasted over 3 hours with no ...

We chose this cruise based solely on itinerary. We have a dozen cruises on NCL which we prefer because of its informality and its short, port heavy itineraries. And the food quality, presentation and choices have demonstrably improved over the recent past. So it was disappointing how NCL handled the engine failure on the Star that occurred 3 weeks prior to embarkation. The itinerary had to be ...

Really not a lot to laud about NCL's Asia cruise on the Star. First, the Star itself is an antiquity, particularly when compared with any vessel in Royal Caribbean's fleet, and I'm being truly objective. The Star and the Jewel are well below industry standard and NCL doesn't seem concerned a bit. We've cruised on the Star twice in the last three years and the Jewell once, to Alaska, last year. ...

This was my second cruise with Norwegian. We went to the cruise terminal in Singapore around 2 PM and had to wait in line for 3.5 hours before we could check in. It was chaos and the people that were doing the boarding were not really qualified. I hear that some people had to wait over 4-5 hours before they could board the ship. We bought visa for Vietnam since we wanted to go ashore in Phu My ...
