7 Night Western Caribbean (New Orleans Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 11, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 5 years ago

Not impressed. The only thing about the ship that I really liked was the art work in the stairwells. The fountain in the Atrium seemed like it didn't work. There was a lot of rust throughout the ship and the decor just seemed off. I was not WOW'ed. This cruiseship seemed to be geared towards older people and not the 20-40 year old group.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The buffet was average. There seemed to be the same thing everyday and there were very little Vegan options. The restaurant food was better. I especially like the a la carte sushi and it was at a reasonable price.

I was bored on at sea days. The activities seemed to be geared towards an older type crowd. I was ready to go once we finished going to the ports.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Everyone was willing to help with whatever was needed and always smiling.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The decor is outdated\, the elevators on one side of the ship worked when they wanted to and kept skipping floors or you couldn't press a specific floor.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Average size room\, but I gave it a good rating because our room attendant kept it very clean.

Pros: The countries visited and the excursions

Cons: The ship seems outdated and no free wifi

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.
