Disappointing Experience

In response to review, KatGuy says ...

I actually wound up in the hospital after this cruise. They believe that I had food poisoning (possibly the raw meat or the uncooked potstickers?) and then developed malignant hypertension. The ship sent me to the Venice ER which never even checked my blood pressure after four hours. We decided to catch our flight as our best option. Thank goodness that I made it to the United States where they were able to immediately identify and treat the issues.

Yes, as bad as folks seem to think the United States health care system is - most everyone seems to come here for help. (At least for the legal, traditional treatments).

P.S. Hope you are recovering.

Sorry that you got sick. ‚  I will agree with you that the NCL star is the worst ship I have been on out of about 30 cruises. ‚  It has poor food, ‚ poor service in the dining rooms (Even the ones you pay extra for) and customer service is lacking. ‚  The Star is the last NCL ship I have been on. ‚  I'd rather go on Carnival, ‚ better food and better service.

Sorry to read that the cruise did not meet your expectation.‚  Thanks for posting the photos.

Never been on the Star, and the only, not-so-great NCL experience was on the Spirit years ago.   Sorry about your bad experience.  If you live near NY I highly recommend the Gem.
