Norwegian Star

The 2,348-passenger Norwegian Star is a lively ship — and a casual one — that appeals to a wide range of guests, thanks to accommodations that run the gamut from cozy inside cabins to the 6,694-square-foot Garden Villas. Hungry? Pick up chicken wings at the 24-hour O’Sheehans pub, make a reservation at Cagney’s Steakhouse … or choose from eight other dining options, including a 24-hour pizza parlor.

What We Love

A Large Ship With a Small Ship Feel: Despite its hefty guest capacity, Norwegian Star’s vast selection of public rooms and restaurants allows guests to escape the crowd and find a spot for a quiet meal.

Drink and Specialty Dining Packages: Money-saving packages help you budget your beverage and specialty restaurant charges.

Pretzel Rolls: Look for these addictive bites — a Norwegian signature — daily at the buffet and in the main dining room’s breadbasket.

Best Known For

Teppanyaki Room: Part dining and part entertainment, this space is a bit like your local Benihana. Sure, it's schtick, but it's a favorite with kids.

Who It's Best For

Bargain Hunters: Families, singles, and couples flock here for a casual, reasonably priced cruise experience.

Don't Say We Didn't Warn You

Watch Your Surcharges: Prices at specialty restaurants range from $19.95 to $29.95 per person (plus 18% gratuity) at Cagney’s Steakhouse and Teppanyaki Room.

Expect a Packed Pool Deck: Like on most ships this size, crowds gather poolside on sea days, and early risers reserve multiple deck chairs. Consider nabbing a chair on deck 13 for a more serene experience.
