Norwegian Star
7 Night Western Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: March 06, 2016
Ship: Norwegian Star
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 5090
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

High winds and high waves prevented the Star from docking at Costa Maya, Mexico, so the Star went directly to Cosumel, Mexico and stayed overnight. Our Costa Maya shore excursions were refunded, but we sure missed the port call. Ship captain said it was his decision. Not as many misquitos, as we had expected in the Southern Caribbean, We sprayed at each port of call, the cruise line did nothing. Told passengers it was their responsibility to protect themselves from misquitos and the Zika virus. Cruise line did not spray the ship, while in port. Last cruise for us on Norwegian Cruise Line.

Cabin attendant has no incentive to perform above expectations, as his/her tip is automatically charged to our bill.
