Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

Overall it was wonderful to see so many beautiful places and watch wonderful shows on board. The shows were really impressive. People are very cordial and friendly. It's nice to be around a lot of people having fun together. We love the upbeat atmosphere and fun schedule line ups. It's a great experience that we like to enjoy again and again with our family.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
The food in specialty restaurants are great. But wish we have more cuisine choices in main dining areas. Also the 24 hour food can be improved as well.


5 out of 5
We love the night time shows. They were impressive and entertaining. Just wish maybe more fun entertainment can be done during the day.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Overall staffs were extremely friendly and nice. Just wished they could have given us a room with a real oceanview. But it was probably out of their control.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
The ship size is extremely impressive and layout is great. There's lots of seating in public areas which is nice. The ship is clean overall. We were a bit disappointed with our oceanview window being so small - just a pumpkin size round window.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The size of our room was average. The oceanview window was way below our expectation. Couldn't see much of anything outside.

It was nice to see the divers. Other than that, it was just ok. It's too much of a big city for us. Much like back home.
Don't Miss: The cliff divers were great.

It was a very peaceful and tranquil place. Wish we could have more time in Ixtapa after the excursion in Zihuatanejo. There were a lot more things we wish we could go see.
5 out of 5
The area is nice and modern with flair. It' has very artistic and unique buildings and streets. It's what we expect in a foreign country and very inviting to the senses.
5 out of 5
Todos Santos was very nice and peaceful. It's a place that we would like to linger a bit longer but don't have enough time.
Don't Miss: The Hotel of California was a must see place, especially the forbidden areas.

Pros: We like the smooth process of the cruise schedule and shows and friendliness of staffs.

Cons: the 24 hour food buffet could have been better.

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
