3 out of 5
Sail Date: January 01, 2014
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 4 years ago

The Star was a perfect size ship. The ship was easy to roam around. You could always find some quiet area to just sit and relax without the noise of the band or hustle bustle of the buffet.

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
We enjoyed most meals. There were several nights\, where the preparation was not quite stellar. The dining rooms were elegant and quite enjoyable. We never waited very long to be seated and the hostess always accommodated our seating request. Specialty restaurants did not live up to the extra charge that was required..but this may be subjective.


5 out of 5
The shows at night were fabulous..exceeded our expectations. The entertainment throughout the ship during the day was superb. There seemed to be activities going on all the tome

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff was excellent. They performed well under a difficult condition of a possible infectious outbreak. The staff was made to serve ALL drinks and food\, thus putting an extra burden on them. We never experience any surliness\, even with the additional pressure placed on them.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
Perfect size...the ship was maintained in excellent condition. Crew was always cleaning. The crew did a yeoman's job in managing the process of keeping the ship free from infectious bugs. The only real negative for me was that the theatre seating did not accommodate taller passengers.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
We had an inside cabin on Deck 12.. Great location.. Cabin was adequate for the two of us over a 14 day cruise.

Pros: Experiencing the transit process through the Oanama Canal

Cons: Too many stops in Mexico

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
