Verified Review
7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 27, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

The ship was clean, yet it's age was apparent. For a few nights the creaking in the door jambs was disturbing, and the carpets were obviously old. Strange peculiarity, no spoons were given with the eating utensils wrapped in napkins...?? We always had to go back to find a spoon or stir our coffee with a fork.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
The stateroom was exceedingly small; only 10 inches on each side of the bed and an overhead swing-down cot prevented one from standing straight up next to the bed. The bottom sheet was never tucked in adequately, resulting in wrinkles under one's body...not comfortable.

Pros: The fact that we could eat in the main dining room with excellent service, but without having to dress up was terrific!! We felt attended to and "special" in comfortable clothes; smart casual.

Cons: Our inside stateroom was really small; except the bathroom which had the best shower we have ever had on a cruise

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
