First time cruisers so nothing to compare it too. I believe this ship would be classed a mid size. It was small enough to seem friendly but big enough not to feel confined or as though you saw the same people all of the time.
Cabin was big enough and balcony an absolute must. Toiletries are replaced as needed and there are bathrobes (albeit a little hard). Staff very attentive and friendly, not after tips as gratuities are prepaid.
The 2 main restaurants were elegant. If you wanted a table... (read more)

The cruise destinations and trips made this holiday for us, but my time on board ship was spoiled by 2 things:- The much reduced choice of food in the restaurants and the casual dress code accepted at all times.
Food:- The choices of food on the menu in the main 2 restaurants are very limited,and the same every night with a few additions. As my wife has a dietary problem this made her choice even more restictive.
Dress Code:- Despite the brochure stating that 1 main restaurant was... (read more)

The food on the Norwegian Star was excellent the staff were very helpful and friendly, the cabin was very clean, the trip to Alaska was wonderful, we came home on Tuesday and booked another NCL cruise on Saturday so that says it all.

My final comment is I do understand what can happen on a ship at sea i was on a Navy Destroyer. I believe the on board credit should have been more, why should your customers be put out, because without them were would you be. The tour we took in Manzillo should be credited that was a joke, riding in a bus trying to see something in the dark........But we gave you the benefit, we signed up for another cruise, because the first one was so good and the second was probably beyond your means and...
