The ship was designed with good taste and provided a selection of activities and specialty areas. It was well maintained. I would rate it as good to excellent.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The main dining room had excellent food. We ate at two specialty restaurants on board which require a cover charge and were disappointed with both and went back to the main dining rooms and had very good to excellent food and perfect service.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had a inside room which we found met our needs and it was very cozy. Great for a couple or two friends. Especially if you were out and about as we were. Two twin beds were pushed together which were comfortable but you could separate them for two twin singles. We had plenty of room for two people but three would have been to cramped as there was a single bunk in the room for a third person. The rooms with the balconies were especially nice and if you prefer to spend time in your room is a good option. They have a large window to view the ocean which slides open to a small balcony with two chaise lounges. The room was a nice size.

Pros: The cruise was very well organized and we hardly lifted a hand all week. The excursions were well planned with top notch companies and personnel. The staff were very courteous and polite and helpfull in every way.

Cons: The specialty restaurants on board did not have very good food for the type of specialty. Italian restaurant did not taste like good Italian food. Same for the Asian-Fusion restaurant. The best food was in the main and freestyle dining areas.

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
