    Norwegian Star

    I will be on the Norwegian Star for her Eastern Caribbean voyage (St. Thomas, Tortola, Bahamas) and was wondering is this the first time the Star will be doing this itinerary? Looking for the dailies, reviews, information, etc. Looked around the CC site and was unable to find anything. Thank you for your help!

    Star Room 12500

    Looked for info on this room before our cruise last week and I said I'd report back after cruise about a couple of things. No, they didn't fix the windows during the retrofit. Lots of streaks from the sealing problem. Still they were great to look out of. We kept the blinds closed in the bedroom most of the time because all that glass really heated up the cabin. If you were going on a Caribbean cruise or a Mexico one during the warmer parts of the year, I probably wouldn't recommend this room for that reason. It would get really hot during the day. We were on the Mexico cruise and heading into the sun, the air conditioners just couldn't keep up even with the blinds closed. Having two full bathrooms is really nice! We were initially going to take a third person but there ended up being just the two of us. We still used the 2nd bathroom and bedroom. There isn't much drawer storage in the master bedroom, but there is plenty in the 2nd.

    NCL Star - Family Suite (SJ)

    Hello All: Considering a Family Suite on the Star. Any input (including photos) on those suites since the refurbishment would be appreciated. Same for the refurbishment overall. Thank you in advance!

    ?? Re: Thermal Spa - Star

    Our TA gave us "unlimited passes" to the Thermal Spa on our upcoming cruise on the Star... I thought I saw somewhere that there is a place there with lounge chairs - where you can just hang out - and enjoy the (aft) view ?? Is that true ? - What hours ? Thanks
  7. My husband and I will be doing a 14 day Panama cruise on the Star February 1st. We both cruise a lot but have only been on one other NCL cruise (Sky to Cuba). I know the Star just got refurbished. Can anyone give me any info. On what she is like now. What is new on her? We're cabins redone? How is the Star overall? We like the smaller ships so looking forward to our cruise. Any info. From cruisers that have been on her recently would be greatly appreciated.

    NCL Star - Jan. 4th

    With this new site, I don't see any ship specific threads so thought I would just post this here. We are on the Star 14-day Panama Canal cruise on Jan. 4th. Only 4 weeks to go. Just wondering if anyone has received an upgrade yet? Have 2 bids in for a higher suite. We are in the Aft Penthouse suite right now and will be fine with it if we don't get upgraded. Also, our roll call has been VERY quiet. I am organizing the M&M and not a lot of participation so far. We also have a FB group page - just search the NCL star Jan. 4th to find the group.
  9. We stop in Rome and are trying to figure out what is the usual time for disbarkment so we can book train tickets, tickets for Sistene Chapel and Coloseum and what time do you have to be back on ship 1 or 2 hours prior to leaving???
  10. Hi Just a question does the star have any formal nights thanks

    NCL Star Oct 2018 Venice

    A little bored and cold this AM. Missing the cruise life. Tower pic of St Mark’s Square Tower pic of the Basilica Tower pic of water bus stop at San Marco Sunset at Santorini
  12. Are there any pix of the 2 bedroom family suite on Deck 11 of the Star since the refurb? Thanks!
  13. We will be on the 14 day Panama Canal cruise from January 18th. I use the fitness center every day to help with my mobility issues and I need to use a walker to get around the ship. I was worried that during the refurb in May they might have eliminated the ramp to that area. There is a staircase, but that would be difficult to manoeuver with the walker. I was so pleased with the service from the access desk! They actually verified with staff on the Star that the ramp is still there and notified me today. I hope this information may be helpful to another cruiser!
  14. Hi Does anyone know who the HD is?
  15. Our family includes two vegans - anyone have experience cruising on the NCL Star and the vegan dining options? Were they accommodating? Any tips? Thanks!:D

    Hello we have the Star booked for Nov. 2019. However I will be running in the Berlin marathon in Germany in sept and thinking about doing NCL pearl 2 days after the marathon . so I was wondering which ship is better. the int is very close to each other (I will add below) we are already doing 2 weeks on the Escape in Jan. so time off of work for my girlfriend will be tight. We have the Star booked: 12-Day Italy & Greek Isles from venice Nov. 10th to 22th CRUISE PORTS Embark Venice (Italy); Kotor (Montenegro); Dubrovnik (Croatia); Corfu (Greece); Santorini (Greece); Athens (Piraeus) (Greece); Mykonos (Greece); Naples (Italy); Rome (Civitavecchia) (Italy); Florence/Pisa (Livorno) (Italy); Provence (Marseille) (France); Disembark Barcelona (Spain) We are looking at the Pearl instead 13-Day Greek Isles & Italy from Rome (Civitavecchia) Oct 1st to 14th CRUISE PORTS Embark Rome (Civitavecchia) (Italy); Kotor (Montenegro); Dubrovnik (Croatia); Corfu (Greece); Santorini (Greece); Athens (Piraeus) (Greece); Mykonos (Greece); Taormina (Sicily) (Italy); Naples (Italy); Florence/Pisa (Livorno) (Italy); Monte Carlo (Monaco); Disembark Rome (Civitavecchia) (Italy) A lot of the same ports. The cost is almost the same. The perks are very close. It will be our 27th cruise, but our first Europe cruise. never been on the STAR or PEARL. All input would be good. Probably will stick with the Star unless there is more positives with the Pearl.

    NCL Star-movie screen?

    Is there a movie screen onboard. I couldn't see one on the deck plans but thought I'd check with anyone who's been on.
  18. First time NCL cruiser. We have a mid inside cabin on 14 day Panama Canal cruise on the Star. I have enjoyed every cabin cruised in on 4 cruises - one aft balcony cabin did vibrate from engines a lot and it was bothersome but still had a great cruise. We just got an offer to upgrade to a balcony for 75$ pp. We have no issues with sea sickness. Is it 'worth' losing midship location for any balcony we could be assigned? I know a balcony is better than inside but I really appreciate your thoughts on any insight you can give us- and tips on what would be a winning bid? My research shows a lot of open mid ship balconies ( which I know I might not get) -thanks so much!
  19. A few weeks before our TA, we got notification from Norwegian we would be arriving in Barcelona at 6 pm on Tuesday and leaving at 8 pm on Wednesday rather than the schedule 6 am-5pm port call. This was being done to allow for non safety related technical reasons. Shortly after arrival Tuesday evening, a hole was cut in the ship and a new crankshalf for one of the diesel generators was placed aboard the ship. By the time we woke up on Wednesday morning the hole was repaired and by the time we reboarded yesterday afternoon it was primed and ready for painting. However, the captain announced due to storms in the Atlantic that were expected to create 20 foot swells, our departure from here was delayed until today (Thursday) at 6 pm. We won’t be calling at Funchal as scheduled. He stated the repairs were completed and weren’t the cause of the delay. I initially didn’t believe this given we won’t get to the Atlantic for at least a day, but we heard that a RC ship also had an unexpected overnight here for the same reason. No big deal to me as we were in Funchal in March on the way here other than the Spanish VAT being charged for drinks-even those include in the package. Here’s hoping we get to leave tonight, the view of the pier from our veranda is getting stale! and before you ask, no mention of any compensation...I don’t see that any is due.
  20. Is there a special restaurant for suite guests breakfast? It's our first time in a suite on the Star and was wondering if there is such a thing?

    Laundryroom on NCL Star

    I just read there is no self service laundry room on board for passengers. Is this true?? I was really relying on this.
  22. My luggage tags printed starboard, but I think it's port. Am I seeing the deck layout backwards?
  23. We are jumping over to NCL from Carnival. :) I have some questions and I'm hoping you guys can help me out. Feel free to answer whichever ones you are familiar with: -Can somebody post (or a link to) the current MDR menus? Any "must have" recommendations? -Does the cabin steward come to the cabin twice a day or once? -I just read that I'm supposed to reserve our show times before we sail. Ack! I didn't realize that. Any shows in particular that we shouldn't miss? -Can somebody post the kids club itineraries? (ages 11, 12, and 14) -My kids want to know if there is soft serve ice cream 24/7, like on Carnival. ;p -There are no set dining times for the MDR, correct? Do you just show up at the dining room or do we check in elsewhere? I think that's it for now. :) Thank you so much!!
  24. Hello everyone , We are about to sail on our first cruise with Norwegian Star on June 24 from Venice. We have 2 very disappointed boys aged 6 & 9 as we have just been informed that the kids pool has been removed along with the water slides! Can anyone, who has sailed on the Star recently, confirm if the 2 yellow slides are gone? Disappointed with NCL, disappointed for our boys! Thank you in advance.

    NCL Star Suite Dining

    Where are breakfasts and lunches served currently on the NCL Star for suite guests? Does it make any difference in the menus? Does anyone have current menus for suite guests? Kip
