If was a fun time for the family

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Star | Sail Date: Mar 09, 2014


The cruise was nice,lots to do for everyone,the teen center was a life saver! The food was very bland and mediocre. Even the lobster was tasteless &chewy. We enjoyed the staff of the ship they were very accommodating and happy! We did put a deposit on a second cruise to possibly Alaska!

Panama Canal cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Star | Sail Date: Feb 16, 2014


I have cruised three times with Norwegian and I must state that this was by far the best of the three.  The ship was very clean and extremely careful in making all of the passengers safe and to stay healthy.   The overall ships personnel were extremely polite and helpful.   The only real complaint that my husband and I had was that there was no monitoring of the beach towel on the deck chairs.  Please left their towel on these lounges early in the morning and thus remained all day.  From time to time those persons would show up and use the chairs but that made it impossible for anyone else who might like to lay in the sun.  I realize it is extremely hard for the stewart to monitor these chair but there should be a time frame ticket on each of the chairs.

 

I would sail again with Norwegian and highly recommend them to all who wish to sail.

Very pleased with ship and cruise

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Star | Sail Date: Feb 16, 2014


Food was excellent, as was service.  Panama Canal was the highlight.  Ship clean, and can not think of any deficiencies.  Maybe a little too much emphasis on getting involved with entertainment, bingo, games, etc.  Our third NCL trip in three years and still very happy with them.

Wish the star rating system had more options

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Star | Sail Date: Feb 02, 2014


The crew was very friendly and helpful, delightful one might say.  My biggest dissappointment was in the food.  I would rate it medicore at best.  The specialty restaurants were good, but the food in the main dining areas was just average.  I certainly have had much better food on other cruise lines.

 

Having said that I would have rated our experiece, not "fine as expected", but fell short of expectation.  I would not have rated it as poor not recomended, but the food sure could have been better.

Cruise on Star

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Star | Sail Date: Feb 02, 2014


Of all the cruises I have taken, this cruise had the worst food.  It was bland and basically the same every day.  Too many old people who could hardly maneuver.  Love the fact that there were very few children.  People who are 50+ pounds should not wear two piece suits or spandex especially in their later years.  Having to seem them when your eating made the food taste worse.

relaxing on deck

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Star | Sail Date: Jan 19, 2014


Deck 7 was the place I wanted to sit and relax on.   So did many other people.   Many people put down towels or books on the deck chairs to save them for when they would use them hours later.

 

The cruise director never made any announcements that chairs could not be saved.   No staff member ever walked around, took note of saved chairs and removed any belongings.  I spoke to several staff members.   They took chairs from the bar lounge inside and carried them out to the deck.  I wrote two letters and put them in the hotel box.   Nothing came of them except I received chocolate covered strawberries delivered to my room.    Those strawberries were an insult.  They did nothing to provide seating on deck 7.   

 

So although the cruise was nice,  having to stand on deck 7 detracted from the cruise experience.

Had a great time.  No need to leave the ship to have fun.  The staff was most helpful.  Swim with the dolphins if you can, even if it's your only shore excursion.  Party in Cabo.

Great Family Fun!

small verified icon Verified Review | Ship: Norwegian Star | Sail Date: Dec 22, 2013


Traveled with extended family and had a wonderful experience! I loved the Spa area, the rooms were clean, the entertainment was great, I loved listening to the piano/singer in the lounge in the evenings, the kids were able to roam wherever they chose and we did not worry about their safety. I was pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed the cruise as it was our first experience, but I think we are definitely sold on cruises! I will say that having a lot of family and family friends on board is a must; I think the kids may have gotten bored otherwise...

Entertainment

Tips for Norwegian Star

Make sure your cabin isn't directly below a bar - loud noises so little sleep. They did change our cabin eventually (after several days) . Not an upgrade and gave us free dinner at one of their specialty restaurants where we found the staff to be especially rude and inattentive.

Check the deck plan thoroughly before you book a cabin. If you book over the phone be sure to have the deck plan in front of you while they are offering you cabins so you can be sure of the location before you commit. Avoid being under the buffet, any other loud venue, or near the casino (smoke).

Save your receipts from when you order drinks from servers around the pool. You may not recognize the name of the bar on your statement at the end of the week, as you did not go to the bar directly to order the drink. This saves headaches in case there is a purchase on your account that looks fishy.

The buffet gets VERY busy during breakfast. Try one of the main dining rooms for breakfast, room service, or just be very patient. I enjoyed the buffet for breakfast. Make sure to pick your seat first before you go up to get food so your food doesn't get cold looking for a table!

We enjoyed eating in the Agua dinning room almost every night.

Enjoy everything the ship has to offer. The pub is a great place to catch a game on tv with a beer.

If eating at the inside buffet, sit as far as you can get from from the entrances because you may get very annoyed by the 2 men screaming "washie-washie" the whole time you are eating!

La Cucina, the Italian specialty restaurant, is great and well worth the cover charge! They have great steak, fish, and Italian staples like chicken parm and fried calamari. No need to pay for Cagney's (which is awesome too) when you can get a great steak at the cheaper Italian restaurant!

Aqua restaurant was very good. Versailles not so much because of the attitude of the staff mostly. Overall, the staff was very nice, and made our stay enjoyable.

Eat at the Aqua Room for dinner! The lounge has a wonderful jazz piano player/ singer who is fabulous, he is a must in the evenings!!!

Get a balcony room if you can; it's worth the few extra dollars. The staff is excellent and always eager to please.

You can get a better deal, and sometimes a better trip, if you book your off-ship excursions once you exit the ship and come face to face with the hoards of vendors waiting to make you a deal for a day trip.

get a map, we were just on the Sun and were lost all the time, such a problem to have LOL

Pack your winter coat and rain gear

Nothing exciting about Norwegian Star. The best thing about this cruise is the trio brothers live performance very night at the Grand Atrium.

Be sure to eat in the specialty restaurants for the good food. We loved the steak one which is Cagneys, and Teppanyaki the Japanese restaurant. The Aqua restaurant was great too. Stay away from the Market Café which is the buffet type and the food was only ok.

Get to the evening shows early as they fill up pretty fast so you need to get there a good 15 minutes in advance to get a good seat. Can recommend the 4th row back in the middle as good seats except for the final show when two rows farther back would have given a better view. Also, the behind the scenes ship tour was worthwhile.

The hot tub and exercise room were great.

The Aqua and Versailles Rooms had nice sit-down meals in a more formal atmosphere. We did not go to any of the specialty restaurants, since the incurred an additional charge.

I thought the restaurants you paid to eat were not better than dining room where you didnt.
