7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 13, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago
The ship was refurbished a year ago but we experienced several items requiring repair. Also, there was an on again off again strong sewage gas odor on deck eight near staterooms 8100 to 8118. When we complained they appeared to get rid of the odor but it always came back. The sliding doors in the bathroom kept falling off. Several seats in the theater had broken arms and seats.

Food and Dining

1 out of 5
The food was poor to average at best. No shrimp cocktail and poor quality steaks that were inch thick. They told me if I wanted good quality to go to the additional pay restaurants.

Nothing more than a small, remote area built for shopping and bars but called a tourist area.
5 out of 5
This is a real tourist area. A very good stop that you can do most anything.

Like the next two stops if you don't go on some tour the ship offers it's not worth getting off the ship.
