491 Norwegian Star Tips

Going westbound, select a cabin on the starboard side for the best views! Pack similar clothing items in large bags so you can use shelves more easily since there aren’t enough drawers.

Keep your cuisine expectations on the low side.

Stay far away from this ship. Mechanical problems caused us to miss 4 of our scheduled 9 ports completely.

This itinerary has a comfortable pace. It allows you to rest a day before the next port. Due to the ongoing engine trouble, the ship was traveling first at 19 knots, then at 13. Our cruise shortened some port times to leave early and arrive late. The glacier scenic cruising was outstanding. The best glacier views are in the north side. Strong winds and high waves made us miss circling Cape Horn. Engine trouble delayed leaving the Falkland Islands nine hours late. The call at Puerto Madryn was canceled and it became another sea day. We only got the port fees reimbursed.

Bring a lot of books or thing that help you to entertain yourself. Is not the entertainment team is more the adult stiff crowd in the cruise. Also have a lot of patience because your breakfast lunch or dinner in the restaurant can take easily 3 hours

Have Fun, I can’t think of anything else

Best for people with kids!!!!

Corporate greed is in full force here. There are problems with the ship and instead of putting the vessel out of service to repair, NCL will just cancel ports at the last minute and think an extra sea day is ok.

Be sure to check out the excellent entertainment!

Don't sail on the Norwegian Star until they fix the engine (azipod) issues. You will not get to all the ports and will have a shorter time then they say in the ones you do stop at.

Relax and enjoy the vacation!

Do not count on the advertised port stops to be honored.

The Star itself is fine, my issue is with Norwegian. They cancelled two ports and changed the time in port for all but one port resulting in having to cancel shore tours and activities. We should have been given the option to cancel and our money refunded. We’ll never cruise Norwegian.

Clearly Norwegian is giving all assets to bigger ships, and this makes me sad

For people who get cold easily, bring your sweaters. While you can set the temperature in your cabin, the common aereas on the boat are very cold. If you book an inside cabin, there are very few quiet areas on the boat to be (reading) in daylight if the weather does not permit to be outside.

Love the size and layout of this ship. Be careful choosing your room location.
