We had previously only cruised with Royal Caribbean- so we expected something similar. The food was definitely not as good. The buffet was quite mediocre. Although it was supposed to be freestyle dining - we had to wait over an hour for the Versailles dining room, because they seated a party of 60- rather than taking people who were waiting in line. The room steward seemed annoyed by his job. Traveling with two small children, one of the things they look forward to are the towel animals- we only saw one the entire trip. We loved our server named Heidi, (from Aqua) she was extremely helpful and considerate to our party.

nice sized bathrooms- the steward brought in a roll away to accomodate my 3 year old. That was very nice!

the pulminya drivers were hilarious- they have no sense of right of way while driving- I wasn't sure we were going to make it to the beach in one piece.

Pros: express departure- the ports were quite nice- the childrens play area at the pool

Cons: room steward was mediocre-having to pay sooo much for soda- lemonade only for children.

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
