Mediocre experience on NCL for neophyte cruisers by tlarocca2

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The internet is horrible, you waste at least half your time waiting for stuff to refresh and NCL could not care less- in fact it's to their benefit as you end up having to purchase more time. And the Optional restaurants are just ok, we never had a great meal and these Optional restaurants are in addition to the meal plan we purchased. I would never cruise NCL again-- it was a 2.5 star experience at best. many people on board said the same thing and they are cruise savvy-- they say try RC. And their Medical facilities/personel are not US certified Doctors. Probably common on cruises, but our treatment for my wife was less then adequate

NCL Star - never again by atheone33

Will never use Norwegian again. I am so disappointed in them that I️ will now go out of my way to tell everyone how bad they were to us. The ports of call need to be longer and the staff needs a lesson in manners.

Adriatic Sea Norwegian Star VAcation by Cruiser606

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
The cruise was a fantastic experience. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves beautiful sites and history. Take advantage of the hospitality of the folks who live in these places. The people were friendly for the most part and most of them spoke English.

Adriatic Cruise on a Star by jlareau

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
Cruise ship is very comfortable and the weather was exceptional. Our suite was good and the cafes and restaurants were good. The ports along the Adriatic coast are interesting and well worth a visit. As always, due to departure times, it is not possible to spend as much time as desired in most of the ports. We have sailed on other cruises which offered more appealing theatrical entertainment and classes on topics such as Microsoft photo software.

Beautiful cruise after rough start. by maybeatle

Getting into Venice 4 days ahead of time allowed us to get over jet lag and see the city. The cruise was more enjoyable than expected since the citizens of the ports were very friendly (except for one guy, but that made for a good story). Each port was unique and we were glad to see the environment of the Montenegro and Croatia countries and why people love living there. As for Greece, these islands were all new to us and we can truly say we saw a different side of Greece than the mainland. The time in each port was shorter than our past NCL cruises to the eastern/western Med and Alaska, which is why we took a lot of highlights tours. All in all, a very special part of the world to visit!

I had a really good impression, and now am just wishing to come and travel again. Next time I will try to go for a cruise with Norwegian to the Hawaiian Islands.

Overall I had a wonderful first trip to Europe, first week-long cruise, and first time sailing with Norwegian Cruise Line. They really impressed me with the food and service especially, and I can't wait to sail with them again.

Honeymoon Cruise by tuckerabbott

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
My wife and I took this cruise for our honeymoon, and we had an overall good experience. I had been to Europe previously but my wife had never been. The specialty food on board the ship was great, but the complimentary food left something to be desired. I wish we had more time to explore at each port (expect 30 minutes taken for both arrival and departure out of the overall time listed for each port). The excursions are great for inexperienced travelers, but if you're more experienced I would highly recommend exploring the destinations on your own.

Lovely cruise! by andsaw

We had a great time with our friends and our son. It was a nice ship and the staff was very friendly. Our cabin was a balcony and was well equipped. We had been out touring Italy for 3 weeks before the cruise and so it was nice to unpack for a full week and let the ship deal with the details. Already looking at a cruise for next year.

Summer Trip with Kids by satis

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (young children)
The trip was great experience, the cruise ship was somewhat aged vessel in need of upgrades. The service and staff were great, the entertainment was super; our kids and us adults very much enjoyed it. The places visited were awesome but would have preferred a longer layover in Dubrovnic.

Cruised with Friends by sannsiltre8

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple
We traveled as a couple with another couple who are good friends of ours. We had an amazing time, we just wished there were longer port times to get things in--especially in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Again, the ship is beautiful, but we kept saying to ourselves that it would have been more relaxing if it had been an adults only ship, or that the ship was larger and had more spaces that allowed for kids and families to enjoy along with those of us adults who wanted some space to ourselves. We have kids of our own, but will usually take them on cruises that are larger so there is more for them to do. Other than that, the ship is beautiful and we still had a lovely time.

Norwegian Star - unremarkable by lizgreg

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group
Very unremarkable cruise. Would not sail with Norwegian again. Staff did not go out of their way to make this a stress-free vacation. Bartenders argued. Guest services refused to assist. Could never find anyone at the excursion desk. Wine selection was disgusting.

Short family cruise by joem72

All in all it was a good experience. The biggest let down was the concierge for our suite who was utterly useless. We stayed in the haven last year on epic so set a high bar coming onto this ship and it was decent.

This cruise was a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the summer and visit some beautiful small cities along the Adriatic without having to pack and unpack each day. Evening entertainment was excellent and overall it was a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Great cruise. Ports of call were great. Loved the suite. Great staff on the ship. Specialty dinners are the best. Best part of the cruise was the butler. Easy on and off the ship experience.

Greece on a ship by kmeprint

Verified Review

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

We enjoyed all aspects of the cruise. The ship was somewhat dated but clean and the service in all areas was exceptional. The food was decent but not outstanding and the coffee available in the free dining areas was not very good. One night in the main dining room the coffee was undrinkable. Over all, we were pleased with the destinations and ship and we particularly enjoyed the special membership to the spa that was limited to only 60 people. It was quiet and relaxing and free of the hub bub found in the general pool and hot tub areas. We have signed up for 2 additional cruises in 2018.
