6 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 19, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Number: 5566
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

We have been on twelve cruises, three of which were NCL, so we have a basis to compare this to. The food was mediocre on the Star and we have been on much nicer ships. The crew was very professional and the entertainment was very good.  The ship had engine problems and we didn't leave port at 4pm  as we were told we would.  Instead we left at 3am. The passengers were not told what was going on and there was a lot of speculation resulting in some very angry passengers.  This was handled very poorly! There should have been an announcement made by the Captain keeping everyone informed.  It made for a very bad start to the cruise.
