Mediteranian experience by jhackman1

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Our shore experiences were great. Sorry we missed Kotor. NCL is ok but not my favorite. I feel they miss some of the small details that other cruise lines do better. Example - Pool towels are in your room but we had to take them off the cart since they were never left in our room. If you want room service it costs you money!

Venice visit.. bucket list CHECK! by joendoodle190

Verified Review

Food and service were great. The STAR is not a mega size (like the Breakaway class) such that getting on and off at the various ports is efficient.

Perfect Adriatic Cruise! by pdmccray3

We traveled with a group of 27 friends and family to celebrate my husband’s 30th birthday. We could not have asked for a better shop, room, food, drinks, and staff. We all had such a wonderful time and will be doing another cruise again soon!

I enjoyed seeing the old world beauty of the cities visited, UNESCO sites and ease of the NCL experience. I loved unpacking once, having the freedom of dining and ability to see and appreciate so many exciting places.

Just ok by traveldoc12

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

This was my second cruise. I liked the idea of freestyle dining but I think it takes away from the experience. the dining staff in the main dining room were not attentive. We typically would run out of water and no one would come to refill our glasses. I feel that they did not go out of their way since you did not have an assigned waiter during the cruise and did not have to work as hard for tips. the tips are collected at end of the cruise and distrubuted by Norweigian to all the staff. The food was ok. For lunch in the main dining, the menu would be the same every other day. The food quality was not good as on my previous cruise. The pool staff was good. The drinks were much better at the pool. I did have the beverage package. I thought it included water but doesn't. The entertainment was ok but not spectacular. I did enjoy the acrobatic performance. Michelled(singer) was funny but typical cruise singer. The cabin was nice. There was a fridge in the room that was stocked but this is NOT included in the beverage package. The shower was spacious. The housekeeper was friendly and efficent. The tendering process needs to be better. I would get inline at 8am for 8:30 tender tickets. By the time, I got to the front of the line, I would be in group 11. People would get 10 tickets and just give them away or not use them. This would delay people from getting off the ship. We had to tender in 3 ports. If you purchase an excurision thru Norwegian you get priority tender.

Greek Isle Cruise by lorettastarr

Verified Review

I have been on probably 10 cruises and this cruise was expensive on drinks and food. We paid for 3 special meals at restaurants but they were so booked we could not get in until 9:30 pm.

They need more variety of entertainment. The main dining room-Versailles-wasn’t very good. Both times we ate there the food was cold.

The Beauty of Greece by gbattista

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

Overall wonderful experience however, did not enjoy having to wait in line so much for almost everything, food, drinks, tender tickets, bathrooms, excursions. It's tough going to these small beautiful towns and have one or two other ships in port also. Made the area very crowded and more touristy rather than quaint and beautiful.

Mixed feelings about our experience - see review for details by dadmerrill

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The vast majority of the staff were stellar, and the ports-of-call were well worth seeing. There were issues I wish I'd known about, and I'll outline them in the order in which they impacted our overall experience. First, the jogging track was located DIRECTLY over our room on Deck 12, and the closure of that track until 9:00a was not enforced so we were woken every morning between 6-7am by joggers pounding over our ceiling. d someone up from security to enforce the curfew. Enforcement of the curfew NEVER happened, and the inadequate signage was never amended. Second, shore excursions didn't include adequate free time (10-20 minutes on average) and involved a lot of waiting around and disorganization. Last, the band hired to entertain on the pool deck was below average. Pool and buffets were often over-crowded so we stuck with smaller venues and avoided the pool. Stage shows, specialty restaurants and most staff were excellent but we will book our own shore excursions next time and will choose a different deck for our room.

Great location, great venue, but bad experience by andytonkovich

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Being on Deck 11 was a nightmare that ruined what could have been a great experience. Dining was great, shows were great, drink service average, excursions average quality, ports average since a lot of the same settings ... set up for the cruise ships, but the cabin experience on Deck 11 was a terrible with the Deck 12 noise that lasted throughout the night.

Enlightening Adriatic Sea Cruise by skicolo2

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We thoroughly enjoyed the ship, the itinerary & all of the ports we visited! It was pretty warm & humid in most of the ports, so would suggest traveling later in the month (Sept.) or possibly in late spring.
