Sail date: March 09, 2019

Ship: Norwegian Star

Cabin type: Oceanview

Traveled as: Large Group

Review summary

Again, i could not believe Norwegian charges a 3% fee to charge your room for casino play $8 + for a beer and won’t allow any liquids to be brought on board. There are more accommodating cruise lines than Norwegian.

Very nice cabin, shower, bathroom (although bathroom might be tight for some guests).

Ship tip

Expect to be a victim of Norwegians “nickel and dime” mentality. The charge $8.00 plus foe a beer, extra for room service and most pathetically a “convenience charge” of 3% for using your room to charge casino money. I rented 4 rooms on this trip and the “casino charge” is my reason to NEVER return to Norwegian.

Ports of call

San Pedro (Los Angeles), California Did not visit port

Not enough time

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Impressed with how the city has grown and improved. Took a tour of the city, went to the beach.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

5 out of 5
Fun port. Took a small boat to see the local sites, fish, rock structures etc.
