The favorite part of the cruise was the shows and I think his name was Vincent he would always say "see you when I see you".

 

My girlfriends and did a tour everyday except for Friday because we were out to sea.  Really enjoyed learning about the different cultures.

 

This was my first cruise ever and I was so happy that I had my very own cabin.

We cruised on the Norwegian Star to the Adriatic Sea on June 4-10. It was a birthday celebration for hubby, and he was pleased. I was glad that we did not have to tender into any ports. Everyone from the captain to the "Washy, Washy, Washy, Happy,  Happy,  Happy" did try their best to please and serve, which really made us feel welcomed. The ports were all interesting, which was why we picked this cruise. The food was fine for the most part, especially at Cagney's. The shows were good - especially impressed by Wu Lan, the beautiful contortionist. Vincent, the Jude Law look-a-like cruise director really revved up the spirit and instilled a feeling of family for the entire cruise. The Soul Brothers were rocking - fun running into them at the ports. We made some nice friends, which made our time on and off board very pleasant. Booked for next year already!

A Fantastic Time - Worth Every Penny

For our first ever cruise we picked a winner. Each of the ports was worth exploring and the ship itself was outstanding in every respect: meals, shows, facilities and staff. The AA add-ons made it outstanding. I had to book a suite to get the date I wanted, and it was the smartest thing I could have done. The VIP treatment associated with a suite was well worth the money.

My family had a wonderful experience. Just the right amount of activities and outings. Food never ending and overall very good. Cabin remarkably roomy and well laid out. Cruise Director and Captain very personable. Kids club outstanding. Only negative was terrible coffee on board - wish they had an upgrade.

Sometimes confusing and tired

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Loved the itinerary. When we boarded we found the process a bit confusing - not very much help with signage to help us find our way. We understand the crew has a great deal to deal with on the first day but they appeared tired well into our trip.  We also noticed less staff was present.  We found our cabin steward was very helpful and attentive in many ways - kudos to him!  NCL entertainment is alway fabulous- we enjoyed all the performances we attended.

The Five O'clock Anywhere Bar was cold and sterile and atmosphere was cold including the seats -not conducive to staying for a second cocktail. Comment on the entertainment...terrible. More bars should have blenders.  That seemed an issue when ordering blended drinks.

Excursion tour guides were all very informative and pleasant except for the lady who did the Athens tour.  She seemed a bit disinterested and abrupt.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Great ports of call. Smooth operations with no issues. Good communication during the journey. Great food and options for sit-down/table-service meals. Well maintained ship including clean staterooms. Entertainment quality was much better than most I have seen on ships. Plenty of on-board activities to keep everyone busy.

Overall, the Norwegian Star was very clean and the hospitality staff was great.   The cruise director Vincent was a riot.   The specialty restaurant staff was very slow and the food was only average.

We love all the ports of call. Especially the Croatian ports since that is my heritage.  We were not impressed by the food service on the Norwegian Star.  Would only recommend ship if friend was looking for these ports and there was no other ship in area to go on. But we knew this when we booked and had a great time anyway. We found one of the best servers in the Aqua dining room and then requested her for the remaining days on the ship.

you might want to avoid the haven suite area on deck 12. they are at the stern and top of the ship........I understand those guests really had a rough ride through the hurricane. I cant understand why the highest price suites are in the worst ship position. I always prefer mid ships, middle decks.

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.

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