Cruise ship review

Круизный лайнер Norwegian Star  был спущен на воду в 2002 году. Корпус корабля украшают звезды, что оправдывает его название. Внутри интерьер лайнера оформлен в ярких цветах, что создает радостную обстановку на борту. Norwegian Star  отлично подходит для молодежи, в первую очередь, из-за доступной цены, а также из-за наличия на лайнере большого количества развлечений, ориентированных на активный отдых. На лайнере есть несколько бассейнов с горками для детей, интернет - кафе, караоке бары, казино и многое другое. Norwegian Star  идеально подходит тем, кто любит вкусно покушать! На борту лайнера Вы найдете огромный выбор ресторанов и баров на любой вкус. Как и на других лайнерах компании Norwegian Cruise Line, здесь действует свободная система питания, по которой вы можете кушать где хотите и когда хотите.

Food

Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks

There are two main dining rooms onboard Norwegian Star for traditional-style dining, Versailles, located aft, and Aqua, located midship. Both are lovely, and Versailles looks very much like its namesake with lots of gold and French Renaissance flourishes. Aqua is contemporary and cool. Besides the main dining room, there are a bevvy of alternative venues.In addition to the two main dining rooms, Norwegian Star features a wealth of distinct restaurants to choose from. Themes range from steaks and classic French bistro fare to Benihana-style Teppanyaki. Overall, food is flavorful, and even inventive. Service is excellent throughout, though it's not unusual to wait to receive your dessert during the busiest dinner hours (6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.). Meals are cooked to order, so the food passengers receive is hot and fresh. Reservations for Star's specialty restaurants can be made only 24 hours in advance, so if you want to try one of the more popular spots, such as Moderno Churrascaria (Brazilian-style steakhouse), Cagney's (American steakhouse), or Le Bistro (French), you should book as early as possible.
