7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 18, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 6 years ago

Overall, the ship met expectations! Compared to the NCL Star, that was next to us in port, full of rust, etc... the Star looked "fantastic" from th outside. Once on board, it was "Grand".

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We were concerned reading all the reviews up until now...that the food was "blah". We are "middle class" and the massive amount of food offered our family of 4 (with 2 teenagers) everything we could possibly want, whenever we wanted it. The food was always presented in a clean, tidy setting. It was flavorful, abundant and there were always multiple choices. Again, Freestyle..you could eat whenever, whatever, however (no dress code)! :) The only negatives were the types of desserts and the fact the soft serve machine was always busy, it pumped slow. Add another machine or ask yourself why aren't cruise passengers eating more of the desserts you offer! No chocolate, tapioca or rice puddings???

Went to all the shows and they were terrific. Not Vegas quality, but close as you could get for a cruise ship. Nice mix...singing, dancing, magic, comedy. Great job NCL!

Children's Programs

3 out of 5
Our teens were disappointed when the teen center was vandalized by some teens. I hope video was pulled and the appropriate parties punished to the fullest extent. A few have to ruin it for everyone! Our kids enjoyed the air hockey, foosball, etc...

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
All the staff seemed very nice, friendly and helpfull. No issues during the entire trip!

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Everything was clean, neat and we were impressed with the emphisis placed on "hand sanitizing" by the staff! Bathrooms were always tidy.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Our room was clean, located mid-ship, mid level and our service was very good. Plenty of towels, always turned down properly.

Pros: Free Style Dining

Cons: Chocolate Buffet and Desserts in general were below expectation

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
