First and probably last cruise on NCL ship, certainly never again on the "Star"!
Ship in need of many more repairs than are going to be possible with the upcoming two week dry dock that we found out about while onboard. Cabin design and furniture both outdated and in poor repair as was pool area. Non-smokers and children unavoidably exposed to smoke in many areas such as pool area and outside BarBQ area. Specialty restaurants, some entertainment and crew were highlights. Crew deserves a better ship to work on.
Took cruise to go through Panama Canal which was definitely the highlight of the cruise. Most port stops were uninteresting at best.

Specialty restaurants well worth the package price. Should offer for breakfast as well. If early risers the served breakfasts are a good option - later dining in the open cafeteria style restaurants depressing - food OK, but eating on plastic with feet sticking to the floor from spills not enjoyable
