The food was okay in the dining rooms\, but I never really looked forward to having dinner as compared to other cruises. Breakfast in Market Cafe was the best meal. Also\, our stateroom attendant was excellent and did a great job daily and was very friendly. However\, there was some long term dirt that would be nice to have cleaned. I know turn around is an issue\, but these areas could be addressed. For example\, the tissue box cover\, tops of outlet in bathroom\, tops of towel rungs\, soap dispenser and spots in the shower I felt needed a good scrubbing. Lastly\, the toilet seat looked very beat up\, it should be replaced so it appears much more clean. When we first entered the bathroom\, I wiped down several areas and used a tissue to open the toilet and another to flush. Finally\, the comedians were good\, but we would have enjoyed more evenings of them or other stand up comedians. The final show \"Elements\" was very good and by far the best show of the entire cruise.

Food and Dining

I was never excited to go to dinner. The first night with Lobster was great\, but after that\, nothing ever stood out. The dining rooms were nicely decorated and the wait staff was very nice.

Not a huge fan of the entertainment\, however the final show \"Elements\" was great.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was very friendly and very nice. Our stateroom attendant always knew our name as we were coming and going. Waiters were very nice as well.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Public areas were being cleaned\, but railings were sticky. Not sure if that was because they needed cleaning or because of the cleaning agent.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
The stateroom was small as expected\, and daily chores were done nicely but there was some long term grime that should be addressed. The toilet seat was really beat up too\, it had the appearance of being dirty\, but needed to be replaced. Beds were fairly comfortable.

Pros: Time away

Cons: Food\, most entertainment

Recommends Norwegian Star? No.
