6 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 19, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Balcony
Cabin Number: 10562
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The check in process took 1 hour to receive keys.  On the positive side, the room was ready and luggage was delivered after receiving keys.  Dining room food was below average.  The buffet and Osheehan's food was better.  The Japanese Noodle House was good with the exception of the Mahi-Mahi which was old and smelled bad.  Not enough waiters taking drink orders and bar lines were too long with waits.  Is this is what "Free Style Cruising" is?

Ship Quality

Very small pools. Not enough for the volume.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
A little small but adequate. Not a good choice of tv channels. No cnn or espn. A lot of wind and wave noise on balcony, more than previous cruises. Only one electrical outlet to charge items.

Ship Tip

Ship is old and had mechanical problems before leaving Tampa. Itinerary was changed to accommodate delay. Pools are too small. Wi-fi too expensive, $75 for 100 minutes!??
