First time on NCL, Not the Last
Norwegian Star Cruise Review to Mexico
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
Review SummaryThis was my first time on NCL. The Star is a great liner with many activities from which to choose. We had a balcony cabin on Deck 10. Very nice.
However, we don't have kids and felt, at times, that the cruise was oriented only to families. This was most evident at the pool. We could not use it at all while it was opened. There was a children's pool, but the kids were in both pools. We ended up having to pay to use the spa pool. Also, why were people bringing kids to the lounges at night? You can't do that on the mainland.
I liked that they had ESPN on the ship as it was March Madness.
Food and Dining
Le Bistro was an excellent dining experience, but was ruined by a family trying to teach their tottlers how to eat. If I am going to pay $20 extra, I don't need to have the atmosphere of Chucky Cheese! Adults only in the specialty restaurants please
