Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Ship Quality
Public areas of the ship were clean and well maintained. I found it easy to get around (but had been on this ship for 2 weeks several years ago.
Food and Dining
Food in the Aqua Restaurant 1st night out was marginal at best. Is this a deliberate ploy to encourage the optional dining with surcharge? Jazz Brunch 1st full day at sea was excellent. (surcharge applied). LeBistro and LaCucina also excellent- surcharge-- (but too much food). Liked the fact that Blue Lagoon was open 24 hours as another option. For Buffet lovers, the Market Cafe had a very nice selection.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was a little crowded--had to walk single file around the bottom of the beds. Liked the shower door concept in bath. Beds good. Couch could stand some refurbishing as well as balcony deck pretty worn.
Service and Staff
Staff overall was excellent. Dining supervisor was outstanding as well as bar staff in Gatsby's. Drinks very pricey--but guess they have to make up for the discounted prices on the cruise.
