November 2011 cruise

Sail Date: November 20, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

The ship was clean all over incl. cabins etc. The breakfast and Dinner meals were good in the public restaurants. It is absolute no need to eat in the special restaurants and pay additional $ 20 to $ 25.00 per person.
Most disappointed was the Pool areas with 2 large slides for kids which covered a lot of the whole area. The Pool itself is way to small for total 2,300 passengers. The evening entertainment in the one only theater of the ship was good to very good. Crew was friendly and helpful.

Pros: Evening entertainment

Cons: Pool area

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.

Ship Quality
Clean , condition of the vessel was good despite that the ship is more than 10 years old.
Cabin / Stateroom
WE had a mini suite which is suffcient for 2 adults. The layout of this cabin is not ideal in particular the access to the small wardrobe. The TV is VERY old, certainly much older than the vessel. I would expect a new modern flat TV in mini suites or better. Poor picture quality too but who wants to watch TV.
Food and Dining
Food in the public restaurant VERSAILES is very good. Service too.
Service and Staff
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras
Make a Taxi tour for $ 20.00/person. They have Vans carry 6- 8 people. We had luck with the driver who explained a lot about people, history and landmarks about this Island. No need to Shop anywhere. Beaches are nice.
Cozumel, Mexico
Good port call. A lot shops, beaches and good mexican food. It was over crowed during our stop. We counted total 7 cruise vessels stopped there same day and time.
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Go to a resort at Tequilla Beach. Nice beaches, alot shops, good restaurants friendly people. $ 3.00 per person by Taxi from Port. The only negative is the 30 minutes boat ride from and to the offshore anchored vessel.
Belize City, Belize
Went to the Port area only and was told from other guests thats all you really can see. Worst Port of the whole trip.
