7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: November 15, 2015
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Inside
Cabin Number: 4585
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Loved the ease of cruising from Tampa (live there). The NCL staff were all wonderful and made our week fun and relaxing. The food was excellent and we never got around to the specialty restaurants. The ship was fully booked but it never felt crowded. We usually prefer a balcony, but at the price we paid, the interior room was fine. It was quiet, near the exit at our ports of call and compact, but functional. Passengers were a great range of ages, from infant to seniors. Evening shows were great and there were always onboard activities. Gym, although not as spectacular as some, was fine. Ship was smooth, hardly knew we were moving. Did not get to the spa. We would go again in a hot minute if the same deal came up again!

Small but functional - ample closet and drawer space for a week. Bathroom was fine. Our steward, Sang, was terrific! Room was spotless. Small plumbing issue on the ship on the last day but response was great. For a "propulsion" repair, we arrived at Tampa on Saturday night instead of Sunday morning but due to Customs, could not get off ship but it made no difference...the fun continued.

Ship Tip

Our interior cabin (4585) on deck four (bottom) was very quiet and stable. A couple in an aft cabin on this deck near some working areas, complained of noise late at night and early morning.

We live nearby so this was an easy trip!

Loved the Dolphin Swim at Anthony's Key Resort.

Zip line was fun (bring insect repellent) but Crystal Cave tubing was cancelled and refunded...river was too high. Had we known it was a 1-1/2 hour bus ride, we might not have done this tour, altho the guide was great.

Took a short taxi ride to the beach/bar/shopping area for a relaxing day.
