Norwegian Star Cruise Review by Travelforfunalways
- Sail Date: March 2017
- Destination: Asia
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Owner's Suite
5 of the days we had arranged private tours for just the 4 of us ( 2 adult couples)and we are glad we did. Other excursions we did trough Norwegian. Phuket in Thailand, it was fine the first part , but then they took the whole bus a 40 minute ride out of the way to some jewelry store.
No one was pleased. We would have rather been taken back and had some free time to roam in Phuket. What a waste of time. 2 Oman stops that were forgettable as was the stop in Fujairah , UAE.
Entertainment on board we had expected to be better considering it was an 18 day cruise.
Food at the buffet is not as good as it used to be, nor in the specialty restaurants that you pay extra for. They took the lobster off all menus.
Service was excellent though as was our cabin. We had a large suite and the butler and room steward were always around and attentive. The other couple had a balcony room that was also good size and clean.
We have another cruise paid for in July with Norwegian, so we will go, but another in February that we will cancel.
We will not book again with them until they improve their food and ports of call.

PhuketBooked through Norwegian. Bus left an hour late. Dancer show was very nice , but the unneeded drive to a jewelry store was awful. Took 40 mins to get there and then 30 to get back to ship. Not counting the time they left us to wander through un over priced jewelry store. By the time we were dropped, there was no time to see the town.View All 99 Phuket Cruise Port Reviews
