Norwegian Star

November 2013 - Norwegian Star to Panama Canal, Central America

Sailing with the Gray Haired Crowd

Nice cruise overall. One must bring their patience however. As the title indicates, this cruise is populated with about 90 percent plus with folks pushing 70 years of age or better. That in itself brings up unique challenges, i.e. stuck behind the wheelchairs, walkers etc. Also, I founds they tend to be on the rude side when it comes to food lines and just getting around the ship in general. Lastly, there should be a rule about wearing Speedos and two piece bathing suits after reaching a certain age (arrrrg!). Enough about the old people that dominates this cruise. The food served is excellent, however it’s a shame that most of the time it arrived COLD. The only exception is the Market Place where it’s more like a chow line. Good stuff, but there you and again dealing with the older crowd and lines. Most of the stops on the cruise are very good; however they tend to be on the short side. From Panama to Miami there are great opportunities for outstanding stops, but Columbia is the only one. Plenty of short stops on the Pacific side. Drinks are reasonable considering you’re on a cruise. Look for the "eye openers" special every morning till 11am for reduced price and the needed morning after. The Sports Bar was a favorite hangout, but they need to upgrade the TV viewing, only one large screen with a couple of small ones. Of course, seating around the large screen is limited, so you’re normally straining to see the very small screen. Either get there early or bring your binoculars.

Norwegian Star Norwegian Star - Go to the Market shortorder line for hot eggs and omlets. Otherwise take your chances with cold overcooked eggs at the dining facilities.
