7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: January 10, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 5012
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly, loved the port shopping and local color. It seems like the food on NCl has declined in quality unless you pay extra for the upscale restaurants. This was my 5th cruise on Norwegian and the worse ship food yet. My wife is not picky at all yet she admitted the food lacked taste and texture. Worse ship pizza ever!!!Wink

Cabin / Stateroom

NCL cabins are very small as compared to the competition. 5012 was quiet and in great condition just a little small.

Ship Tip

The ship was in great condition and easy to get around. The food was another matter. Cold soup, overdone meats, no lobster, bland and tasteless food and very spotty service in the main dining rooms. Jello as a desert in the buffet area?
