The cruise was wonderful. Our captain said that this  was the best of 20 trips that he had made across the Alantic, it was just so smooth all 14 days and nights. We love the Star, it is just a beautiful ship, smaller then other ships that NCL has, but nice. We purchased the speciaity dining package as my husband is diabetic and he could monitor what he ate more carefully. I loved playing in the casino, going to the movies, playing Deal Or No Deal, playing Bingo and just relaxing on our stateroom balcony. We have only sailed on NCL cruise ships and are Platinum members (93 nights total). One thing very important is that all passengers purchase the ship insurance. We continued on the 14 day cruise on with the ship for the Baltic 9 day cruise, on day 16 my husband got Bronchopneumonia and the ships doctor said we must leave the ship and put him in the hospital in Germany!!!!! We had the regular cruise insurance but for a small cost more we could have had the Platinum Insurance. Anyway the insurance took care of 9 nights in the German hospital, my hotel and taxi expenses plus our flight home from Berlin to Seattle. SOOOO GET the Best Insurance for your cruise.

Ship Quality
We have been on 7 different NCL ships, we love the Star
Food and Dining
Only ate at speciality resturnants, super food and great service
Cabin / Stateroom
Very old bed, the worst! They put pads on the bed to make it more comfortable, however NCL needs very badly to purchase new mattresses. Otherwise we liked our balcony cabin
Service and Staff
I filled out several NCL Hero cards, great staff and service
