Service, amenities, activities on Norwegian Star were awful

Jul 14th, 2019

they would be much better cutting out one port and spending more time in each of the others. also we should never be in a port like santorini with 4 other ships. that small port cannot handle those crowds. made it an awful experience for everyone. Do not recommend this cruise

Good, but $$

Jul 10th, 2019

All in all a wonderful experience, super locations and great food. Only criticism is the excessive use (still!!!) of single use plastic and bottles. Come on Norwegian!!! Just STOP using plastic!!! How hard can it be??? Educate your consumers. The one thing I HATED about this cruise was the feeling that you’re being squeeeeezed for every last dollar. Mark up on extras and excursions are in the 1000 percentile, so even when they so generously give you on-board credit or special packages and discounts, you’re still being screwed! And here’s a thought: how about you pay your own staff instead of adding on the daily obligatory $15pp “Service Charge” - effectively making us pay their wages....

I usually take Disney Cruises and I guess I've become a snob. I would never take a Norwegian Cruise again.

Wonderful Italy & Greek Islands Cruise

Jun 12th, 2019

12 cruise Italy and the Greek Islands cruise plus we also visited other Mediterranean Ports such as Cannes, Kotor & Dubrovnik. It was a Fantastic itinerary! We saw & did so much! the ship was perfect for such a port intensive cruise. Not to big, we did not have a long wait to embark or debark the ship. Great & Caring Staff, Delicious Food, Good Entertainment, the Best Mojitos!!!!

Fantastic cruise

Jun 6th, 2019

A very busy itinerary but the weather was good and we got to see, do and experience a lot. Would highly recommend this cruise especially for anyone who likes to be busy. Beds were comfortable after a long day. A lot of good memories from this ship.

First of many NCL cruises - Alaska

Jun 6th, 2019

We enjoyed this cruise through Alaska so much we absolutely intend to return. Only negative was the rough seas on the way back to Seattle. But the staff did everything possible to make us all comfortable.

Due to a noise under our room, the cruise was anything but pleasant.

Jun 5th, 2019

I had great expectations for this trip but my experience was not pleasant at all due to the noise problem in our room. Unfortunately I didn't even have the option to leave the cruise because we were in the middle of the ocean. I still have like 4 next cruise deposits to use in the future but I would need to forget all the inconveniences of this trip to decide take another cruise with NCL soon.

VERY LOW QUALITY SHIP but good itinerary

Jun 5th, 2019

Very weak cruise overall. The outside performers they brought on were good (Karl Loxley and "White Magic") but the onboard singers and dancers were like watching a weak high school production. The food was the worst I've ever had on a cruise and the stateroom attendant was not helpful. The worst was having to wait in line for 30 minutes each night to get a table for dinner. This freestyle dining option is terrible.
