Very enjoyable cruise

Sail Date: October 31, 2007

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

This was our fourth cruise on four different cruise lines. We took NCL because of the e-mail offer through Alaksa Airlines. It was less than 60 days to departure and we received a very good rate on a balcony cabin. In the past, we have selected large dining tables so we would have the opportunity to meet new people and share the days events. With the freestyle dining on NCL you go to dinner when and where you want. We enjoyed that feature and asked to share our table with other guests so we got the best of both worlds.
On a couple of the stops we did not have a full day to visit. Despite that we enjoyed the itinerary. Cruising Mexico was never high on our list since we visit Mazatlan on a regular basis. As it turned out, we were glad that we took this cruise. The staff was friendly, the ship was clean and service was good. We did not like the $71.50 per person for soda pop program and did not participate. The main pool was too small but other than that, it was a good cruise.

Pros: Free style dining

Cons: Did not have a whole day at some stops

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Of course all staterooms are smaller than a hotel room. This cabin was laid out well and we would not hesitate too book again.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
We found the entertainment to be supior to that of the other cruise lines we have taken.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa, Mexico
Smaller towns.
Acapulco, Mexico
It is a long climb down many stairs to see the cliff divers and there is no shade. You cannot see the whole dive if you stay above.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Very green and clean. We enjoyed a tour that we booked out on the dock. I would recommend doing the same. We got six people together and paid $20 each.
