A nice time

Sail Date: November 01, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was nice, as far as the interior goes, but again, the food in the main dining rooms were just ok. Its a shame that you have to pay extra to get a better meal. The cost of buying picutes on board of $12.00 is too much, if they sold them a half the price they would sell alot more. (we didn't buy any, for that reason) It seems that ships are charging for more and more these days, making curising not such a good deal. The excursions could be a lot lower also. iT MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE JUST BEING TAKING ADVANTAGE OF, with all of the up charges.

Pros: The portw of call and the entertainment on board.

Cons: The food.

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Ship Quality
The public areas were nice, however we prefer smaller ships. Too much walking.
Food and Dining
I have already commented on that and will not cruise with NCL again because of the poor quality. Also they had tongs in the buffet that were cheap plastic that wouldn't hold anything and were very difficult to use. When we mentioned to the staff they said everyone complained about that but that nothing had changed. What a small price for the cruise line to make such an easy change as that.
Cabin / Stateroom
The beds were comfortable, plenty of storage room, but the wall in the water closet was a pain in the neck.
Children's Programs
The children on board always seem to be doing fun things and having a good time.
Service and Staff
The staff was very helpful and nice... however we never did meet our room stuart. Usually that is the first person you meet on board, with that being said they room was always clean.
The entertainment was very very good and I didn't miss a show.
