The good and not so good of Norwegian Star

Sail Date: April 17, 2016

Reviewed: 1 year ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

NCL seems to be reducing the quality of the cruises in the mid-size ships.  Our mini-suite was the same size as a balcony room.  The closets were in a terrible location.  The workout gym is great...lots of equipment.  Overall, the food is pretty good....only specialty restaurant used was Cagney's...and it is Very Good.  When showing up for games, such as trivia.  Often there are no prizes given.  NCL provides an activity card and if you have shown up to enough activities and gotten enough initials, you might get a small token at the end of the cruise.  The entertainment was the same shows we have seen on the Sun and a previous cruise on the Star (six months earlier).   

Cabin / Stateroom
It was supposed to be a mini-suite, but felt like it was nothing more than a balcony room. The location of the closets were horrible. Other than that, the room was OK.
