Ship was pretty good. Cabo stop was too short to do anything but eat and shop. Other two stops were enjoyable. I thought there would be some benefits to being a latitudes member. I experienced none on this trip. Service seemed to diminish as the cruise progressed. We experienced rough seas the last two days. Several passengers experienced motion sickness.

Food and Dining

Food was OK. I've been on 6 cruises. This was in the bottom 2. Dining facilities were loud. Service fell off the last few days of the trip.

Some of the best shows I have seen on a ship.

Visit too short. Could only eat and shop. There was a gauntlet of vendors hawking their wares the moment we got off the boat. Cabo would have been a better experience had we spent the entire day there.

Pros: Puerto Viarta

Cons: Cabo venders, trip home

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
