Very Interesting

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Well laid-out for amazing variety of experience, scenic views and getting on or off the shop at port.

Pros: Mexican ports are so different and unpredictable

Cons: Need large print on menus everywhere

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Ship Quality
Staff are painting before cruisers awaken, cleaning is constant.
Food and Dining
Unrivaled variety. I tried new things for free.
Specialty restaurants food overcooked but Market Place Buffett fresh and plentiful.
Cabin / Stateroom
Insulation between rooms poor... you can hear conversations. Plenty of room, modern and fresh. Thermostat is precise and reliable - perfect. Shower is wonderful in all ways. Towels are continuously stocked.
Service and Staff
Haven't been called 'Sir' so much since I was in the Army. Language barrier is rare and not an issue but memorable when it does. Work ethic is 100%
SUPER. Everything from dance lessons to amazing magicians. Life changing access to hypnosis doctor. Availability of drinks in the theatre is a plus.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Heavy sales efforts when you step ashore. Can't get a breath, they are all over you. Limited little town. Lots and lots of security guards no worries. Boat trip to the beach was great . Plenty of little stores to walk to.
Don't Miss: Just interesting to see the people and how they live.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
First thing you see is Walmart but interesting all their tourist shirts are based on california. People are friendly or at least not negative at all. Spanish speakers are particularly appreciated. Lots of hotel building underway. Photography opportunities abound. Could not walk to tour boats, a lot could not be figured out in the hours we had there.
Don't Miss: Two days here would make more sense than two at Cabo. More to explore.
