The ship is very nice on the inside. However it is getting close to retirement in my opinion. We were on deck 9 right above life boats\, bad location when we tendered in a port at 4 am the floor was shaking from the boat being deployed. On sea night the room creaked very very loud! We have been on 5 other cruises and not had that problem. NCL needs to improve the meat served\, there was so much fat in the hamburger\, they boiled a steak in the main dining room. We ate at Cagney's one night at $30 pp\, that meal was awesome and 100% beef. The main dining rooms served a good breakfast but the bacon was awful!

Pros: Relaxing sea days

Cons: Food

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Alway saw crew cleaning! Wiping down the hand rails was a good thing!

Meat was not good except for first night New York and the Lobster!
Cabin / Stateroom
Don't get a stateroom over life boats! Our cabin steward was excellent!

Evening shows were all very entertaining!
