We took Norwegian Star on a 14-day Panama Canal trip recently. It was a marvelous experience. We had multiple trips with Norwegian before but this one was most unforgetable. The stateroom, food, on board service are not much different from other Norwegian ships, but the ports we visited were just a totally fresh experiences. The Pacific shores of Mexico are just like a heaven, Puerto Huatalco, Puerto Valarta and Cabo San Lucas are just gorgeous. Of course, the experience of passing the Panama Canal is a life time experience and hopefully we can take another one after the canal expansion completed by 2016. Overall, we enjoyed this trip very much and strongly recommend if you have enough vacation time and never been Mexica west coast.  

Ship Quality
The smaller ship is better than those bigger ships, the service is better, not crowded everywhere, have more chance to interac with the crew.
Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
The entertainment was great. The Showband, the 4ever in Concert are just best performance we ever seen on Norwegain.
Onboard Activities
Enough daily activities will make you not get bored.

Costa Rica zipline excursion is great! The Mexico ports we visited are so beautiful.
