Nice ship, (But getting around can be a bit confusing). Fairly descent food. One has to remember they are preparing 2200 meals. Automatic tipping just doesnt work. Service (except for sit down dining) is sub par. Our stateroom attendant didnt replenish mugs, towels, ice, coffee, etc. It appeared our linens were never changed. Be prepared for ridiculous charges such as: $2.00 sodas, $5.00 deposit for a Beer bucket, and high drink prices. NO MID NIGHT BUFFET! Stay away from the Casino!!! Save time and just throw your money overboard!

Service and Staff

Many staff members were not very friendly. I found the food servers in the dining rooms were the exception.

Cabin / Stateroom

The worst! I guess This a result of up front tipping. However, the bath room was laid out very nicely. The closet is a joke.

Pros: Very Nice Ship

Cons: Stateroom Attendant

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.
