Exceeded Expectations!

Sail Date: April 01, 2006

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

While this was our first cruise, everything on the Norwegian Star exceeded our expectations. The food and the service were outstanding - the room was convenient with plenty of storage space and did not feel crowded. The housekeeping staff kept everything fresh and were constantly checking to make sure we had everything we needed. All areas of the ship were sparkling clean - the spa and hot tub areas had plenty of fresh towels at all times and were always neat and tidy. We really liked the "free style dining" that gave us lots of choices of when and where to eat each evening. The specialty restaurants were very good - the seafood at the Ginza was outstanding. We were also impressed with how easily and quickly we were able to get off the ship, clear customs and be on our way to the airport the final day of the cruise.

Pros: Food/Service Staff

Cons: Selection of Movies

Cabin / Stateroom
The entertainment was good - we did not take part in a lot of activities as we were on vacation to relax and rest - probably the only area where we were somewhat disappointed was we had already seen most of the movies that were featured in the theater during the cruise.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Overall, the food was excellent. The dining times and seating arrangements were very flexible enabling a relaxing vacation where we did not have to "plan" our activities to get to dinner at a certain time.
Service and Staff
Staff were all friendly and helpful - all took time to make sure everything was going well for us and continually asked what else they could do. The housekeeping staff remembered our names and offered a cheerful personal greeting no matter what time of day or night we met them in the hallways.
Acapulco, Mexico
Cliff divers were worth seeing -
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Great place to walk around the visit the market stalls -
Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico
My husband enjoyed this port the most of all four stops - liked the more "authentic Mexican village" environment.
