A disappointing cruise

Sail Date: February 01, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship needs to be refurbished - Market Cafe is depressing, dark and dreary decor reminds you of an old hospital cafeteria. Food appeared appetizing but it was always cold possibly due to outdated serving trays.

Pros: Great weather

Cons: Mechanical problems prevented us from visiting Acapulco and Zihuatanejo/Ixtapa. We visited Manzanillo and Mazatlan instead. Manzanillo was a waste of time - absolutely terrible! Mazatlan was ok - nothing special.

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Ship Quality
Decor outdated - furnishings worn
Cabin / Stateroom
Uncomfortable bed, shampoo and soap dispensers not refilled, extremely noisy due to location directly under Market Cafe
Food and Dining
Food in dining rooms was very good - not so in Market Cafe (buffet)
Too repetitive
Service and Staff
Found all staff to be very friendly especially female staff- they were always smiling.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Took sightseeing tour offered by NCL - very interesting, but a bit expensive
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
From port took bus into town - very interesting to mingle with the locals.
