"Just an OK cruise"

Sail Date: October 15, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

It was decorated bright and fun. But not very clean. The food was not as good as other cruise lines like Celebrity. They don't spoil you on this cruise line either. We had to do some things that on Celebrity was done for you. The buffett never changed, same thing each day. But the ice cream was good and free. Drinks were very expensive and not very good, very light on the alcohol. They were always trying to upsell us, "want a double" "want a bucket of beer instead of just one" "how about another drink" and so on. Didn't like the idea of Freestyle, just not for us. We like knowing when and where to eat, not have to pick a place and call a few days ahead of time to get in.

Pros: The free movies in the rooms

Cons: It was not very clean

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Shotover jet is a must do along with cliff divers at night. Friends got a taxi for the day and went to a water park, got to swim with the dolphins and see a show. Taxi driver stayed with them all day for $100 US.

Shotover Jet was a lot of fun. We have done it 4 times and will do it again if we go back. Be prepared for a lot of humidity.

Alot of jungle type things to do. We did the Canopy tour with zip lines in the tops of the trees. It was great fun. Swim with the dolphins is also awesome.

Snorkeling and relaxing on Playa Las Gatas is the way to go. Great food and drinks at fair prices. Very attentive waiters. Wonderful massages 1/2 way down the beach for $20.
