We recently sailed on the Norwegian Star for the second time. We really like NCLs style, service, and freestyle cruising. We loved all the nightlife options. The shows were great it felt like a totally different night out, every single night. Overall, we have to say the ship was really impressive; the staff was wonderful as always. Our next cruise is already being planned, although it may not be on the Star depending on the place we will cruise to, it will definitely be on Norwegian Cruise Lines!!!

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Ship Quality
The ship was neat and tidy at all times.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our stateroom was very nice. I do wish we had known in advance that bed for the third person in our room was a fold down wall bed. The bathroom was great! We had book an accessible room, as there was a possibility that I would be using a walker. I didnt need one that goodness, but the extra bathroom size was appreciated very much by the two 6ft 2 and 3 inch cabin mates.
Service and Staff
The service staff is the absolute best! They are always ready, willing, and able to help you. Our room stewards Matt and Renelito were great and represented NCL well.
Each of the shows were so different it was like being in a different place each night.
Food and Dining
We felt that the buffet was not as good for us this time as in the past. Breakfasts were very good. Lunch and dinner were more "international" than we were used to and having two "picky" eaters made the buffet a challenge. The Topsiders Grill and Blue Lagoon were great for those two "picky" eaters as they serve "comfort" food.
