Norwegian Star

April 2016 - Norwegian Star to Caribbean - Western

Great cruise with minor inconveniences

I purchased a 5 meal specialty dining package and, once on-board, could only make reservations for 3 nights, with no choice of time. I ate at the same specialty restaurant twice, since that was all that was available. One night I ate at 5:30 and another night at 9:15. I purchased a $50 spa certificate that remains unused. The only thing I could get for $50 was a haircut and beard trim. There were no breakfast room service order forms in my room or any laundry bags. I had to find a steward each time I needed them. Getting off the ship was unclear. I had no information on luggage, times, and luggage tags. I ended up walking off the ship carrying several pieces of luggage, with difficulties on the stairs and the escalators. 

Other than those minor inconveniences, it was a great 7 days. I highly recommend their other cruises; the 15-day Norwegian Capitals cruise in Europe, the Panama Canal, Jamaica and South America 15-day cruise, and the 7-day Hawaii cruise.

carychristian's Tips

Cozumel, Mexico - When you get off the ship, go ONLY to the shops listed on your port guide/map. I spent over $500 on fake tanzanite jewelry.
Norwegian Star Norwegian Star - Make reservations for all dinners and any excursions that might have a limited capacity BEFORE you get on the ship. Use a credit card, not your debit card for your room account. After that, the cruise will be great. It is very 'Freestyle' everywhere except maybe 2 of the specialty restaurants.
