Counting Panama, Los Angeles, the Mexican Riviera, Alaska and the Caribbean among its many destinations, Norwegian Star can hold upwards of 2,000 passengers. Launched in 2001 and stretching a massive 971 feet, Norwegian Star is one of the largest cruise liners in the NCL fleet.
Norwegian Star – What to do
You will find a wide variety of bars, sports activities and other diversions to keep you busy during your stay aboard Norwegian Star. Most Norwegian Cruise Line ships boast high quality health spas, and Norwegian Star is no different. You can also keep active on the basketball and volleyball courts, the golf driving net or the Oasis Pool. Enjoy a magical evening with the Vegas-style shows of the Stardust Theatre, followed by a roll of the dice or a spin of the wheel at the Star Club Casino.
Why not relax with a drink at one of Norwegian Star’s many bars? The choice is impressive, from a good old pint of British beer and a delicious plate of traditional fish and chips at the Red Lion to champagne, foie gras and caviar at Gatsby’s Champagne Bar. You will find cocktails at the lively Starbar, poolside refreshment at Topsiders and superb Bavarian beers at Bier Garten. Wine enthusiasts can undertake an enjoyable tasting session in Norwegian Star’s wine cellar. Alcohol-free options can be found with the healthy fruit drinks and smoothies at Barong Juice Bar, or alternatively you can relax over a coffee at Java Café.
Norwegian Star – Where to eat
The ship houses two expansive dining halls, with Aqua Main Dining Room including both hearty meals and lighter healthier options, and Versailles Main Dining Room showcasing the talents of NCL’s award-winning chefs. Norwegian Star is sure to have something to cater for all tastes, from the rustic Italian delights of La Cucina, to the substantial steak dinners at Cagney’s Steakhouse, to the excellent French cooking served up at Le Bistro.
Arguably the most interesting dining experience can be found at Ginza Asian Restaurant. Combining Japanese, Thai and Chinese cooking styles, the restaurant’s Sushi and Sake Bar and mini-restaurant Teppanyaki will prepare your meal in front of you, allowing you to fully appreciate the techniques used. Late night snacking is welcome at Blue Lagoon, open 23 hours a day, while there is of course always the option of room service.
