We had never visited most of the Islands on this Cruise and specially wanted to visit Aruba & Curaçao. We loved each port and all of our excursions! The ship was just coming from a remodel and was beautifuly redone. It felt like we were traveling on a brand new ship clean & bright. We never traveled on the Star before but, we have been on the Dawn and we loved the improvements. Everything about this ship met or far exceeded our expectations. We found this cruise had the most diverse group of passengers from religions, race, nationalities and the friendliness was amazing. We seem to make new friends no matter where we went! We did have problems with a very late embarkation. The ship & crew had to undergo an intense inspection (because the ship had been out of the US for awhile). This was out of NCL’s control- but I thought NCl could have done a better job adjusting the schedule one we were on board- reschedule the safety training. The staff was just incredible- our room steward (Rai) couldn’t do enough for us! We made friends with many of the waitstaff in the restaurants and would look for favorites when ever we went to eat! By the way we just love freestyle!!

Cabin Review

Mid-Ship Balcony
Cabin BA 10116
Our room was well organized had plenty of storage & our room steward kept it clean, and very tidy. We loved having a balcony and we would end our day with bringing our last cocktail back to the room- sit on the balcony and enjoy the stars.
