Panama Canal great experience by millse

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We were not sure about cruising with Norwegian but loved the experience. Wished they would have had more shrimp, crab and other seafood. They had lots of fish but not enough other seafood.

Disappointing experience. by Caltraveler

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall the cruise was not a good experience. Although the food was pretty good in the dining rooms, this did not make up for the other shortfalls. I will not be sailing again with NCL and this experience has put me off future cruises in general.

Unimpressive Cruise by NSM

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Nothing special at all about the cruise or ship. I was not impressed at all with the food & service. It was the worst out of all the cruises I've been on. There just seemed to be one small issue after another.

Washy Washy by lidasadatiLida

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This family cruise was for my 50th birthday. It became cream ala cream birthday of all time. We all enjoyed ourselves so much we are planning our next cruise now. The shows were excellent. Suggestions: More tropical, latin bachata Music and dance music. The cliche' YMCA is fun once. Music should excite people to dance and think of the trip after the trip. Restaurant lines too long, never managed to get into the ginza the hour and half wait kept us from going there, since we could get into aqua and the other faster, after the 7:30 show.

Total Relaxation by marti85090843

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We rested, and that was well worth it. We did the Spa one day, could of saved on paying for the week there, but then, i was not feeling the best, which was too bad. But we rested, and had a good time in the Casino playing Texas Hold-em with other passengers at night, it was nice to have a live table instead of a computer.

Overall, this was a wonderful experience. Don't forget to pack relaxation and patience and take the time to talk to those around you. It is a great way to pass the time and meet some new friends.

Rejuvinating Caribbean Cruise by gold4us21

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise, overall, was good but not exceptional. This cruise lacked many fine amenities of other cruises in the same NCL line as well as other lines in general.

Worse cruise ever. Rude and really slow service, the Staff/crew ruined this trip. They did not earn the gratuity we were charged. by maylanwalker

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

Worse cruise I have ever been on. Staff/crew were horrible. Slow, rude, argumentative. I walked into an elevator and stepped in someone’s vomit. When I called on the phone for help to get someone to clean it I ways yelled at and they hung up on me.

OK Caribbean Cruise by famthyge

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall a fine cruise. Super entertainment in theater. Somehow disappointed about music entertainment around the ship compared to what we have experienced on earlier cruises. Excellent food in restaurants but wine serving needs to be improved. Wine came several times later than food.

Wonderful southern Caribbean cruise! by RhondaCrabill

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I wouldn’t have minded a few more ports of call...only 5 on an 11 day trip. Also, only being in port for 8 hours really limited the ability to enjoy the places without it being smoldering hot! The ship handled the rough weather very well, and seemed to be smooth sailing the entire time.

Caribbean Thanksgiving by bobcybularz

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The ship just came into the States from Europe so the clearance for embarkation took a little longer than normal. Once it began it appeared very disorganized. The Ship itself was very nice and clean. The Captain was fantastic as well as the crew. Food was ok. Entertainment and Cruise Director ( Roberto) did an excellent job. Had to almost beg to get drinks. Room Steward did a fantastic job.

Relaxing and economical Trans Atlantic cruise by joendoodle190

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Being a T/A cruise during "school" season there were very few kids on this cruise. The Star is the same size as NCL's Jewel class, yet lacking the fwd spinnaker lounge. The crew is attentive and happy. Topside the pool deck does not have the features of the Mega ships designed for youth, such as a ropes course, climbing wall, waterslides and the like. Therefore this ship is better for retired folks like ourselves, the Mega ships are better for kids and those that are don't mind waiting in lines.

- Worst Customer Service by jroossin

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Transatlantic Cruises are not for everyone. They are cheaper in price relative to similar length cruises or other cruise that offer more ports of call and accordingly attract older. and on this cruise, many trashy people. Due to weather, our port of call in Barcelona was extended to almost three days and our port of call in Funchal was cancelled, which was a win-win. The ship was nice, staff was great, entertainment was recycled from other Norwegian Cruises, and activities (bingo, trivia pursuit, towel folding demonstrations) wete not to my taste, so being at sea for so many days got boring. I booked through . Customer service / follow-up by my representative was terrible.
