Tne Norwegian Star

Sail Date: February 07, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was built in 2001 and has few of the features of more current ships. On cold days they had no movable roof to cover the pool, the staterooms (outside) were small compared to Holland American. Small and inadaquet dinning rooms to handle 2100 passengers

Pros: The friendliness of the crew. The express disembarcation if you carry your own bags

Cons: Except for the specialty dining i.e.La Bistro the food was about average and the coffee weak. The open buffet was generally oor quality.

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Ship Quality
see prior answer
Food and Dining
One of the items people go on a cruise is for the eating experience. Except for the specialty restaurants the food was average at best and the selection minimal.
Cabin / Stateroom
small with little room to sit 4 people. We had to slide the bed to the wall on one side in order to get out.
Service and Staff
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
The Giggling Marlin is an old favorite.
Don't Miss: Fishing or diving
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Don't Miss: Head north to Neueva Vallarta for great beach and small fishing village
Mazatlan, Mexico
An old and idrty city with not too much going for it
Don't Miss: Staying on the ship
