Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Ship Quality
Sports activity area is too small or limited
Cabin / Stateroom
space is too small. the room layout wasn't provided at time of booking, otherwise I would get different type room for four of us.
lacking of high quality show, although ship director is very creative to make every event fun. It should have at least few high quality show (1.5 hr, instead 1 HR)
Children's Programs
Our teen boys are very impressed with the program.
Service and Staff
Most staff are very friendly. We especially like Aqua restaurant staff, prompt and willing to do extra to make guest happy.
Food and Dining
Most restaurant food are good, however, we didn't have very good experience with Ginza -sushi, very slow, food lack of presentation.
