Norwegian Cruise Line Norwegian Star by Ginny Mexico February 12, 2008
This was our second cruise, our first with NCL. We had some serious issues with the sewer smell in the hallway and in our room on Deck 4. When we reported it, they told us it was "normal." YUK!!!
Our friends found a pair of shoes under their bed. Nice ones, too!
Sometimes they would leave coffee packets in the room, most often we had to ask for them. The coffee smell masked the sewer smell!
We can't stand the buffet. It is so unsanitary. People are such inconsiderate slobs. They pick up food with their hands and then put it back. I would like to be the buffet Nazi!
We had a horrible experience in the Endless Summer Restaurant. It took us two hours to be served. When we asked for coffee at the end of the meal we were given instant coffee. Our waiter thought he was funny when he told us it was Starbucks. The food was so-so, not worth the wait.
Our best experience was in the Versailles dining room. All meals were very nice. Breakfast menu could use some variation. Servers were excellent!
We are trying Pride of America in November. After reading reviews, we are nervous! I hope they get their act together soon.
I was more impressed with the Carnival Holiday, even though it is a very old ship, than I was with NCL Star!
I won't recommend this ship to anyone. I will not cruise on it again!
