Default Norwegian Star.....Singapore - Hongkong route
My wife and I were on this ship that departed from Singapore on January 5, 2017 to Hongkong for 11 nights. This was only my second eperience in cruising, so hopefully my judgement would be appropriate.

We flew from our home, Indonesia to land in Singapore around 1 pm and we arrived at the Marina Cruise Terminal around 2 pm. Check in process were nicely managed and within 1 hour we were already in our exterior room 8108.

Our room was clean and nice although a liitle bit small and unfortunately I was upgraded to obstructed view windows (from GTX). A bit dissappointed as we lost the free option, due to GTX selection and this was not mentioned clearly.

Another disappointment was the itinerary revision following their azipods problem in their earlier trip, so we missed Koh Samui and Bangkok my favorite place and were exchanged with Phu My overnight and Cam My which both were not my favourite. But 20% reduction was offered, well not complaining again.

I enjoyed the freestyle, never bothered with reservation and formal dress for both lunch and dinner. Meal time became so flexible that I liked very much.
They had complimentary 4 a la carte restaurants, one big and small (at the pool) buffet. All were very good. The buffet had different theme every night.

Jogging track was a bit narrow, in certain part was hard to overtake slower runner. Fitness centre was well equipped but unfortunate the cardio machine were not arranged to have sea view.

They had only one pool and no lazy chairs were under the shade, so it was only nice for sunbathers. Surprisingly smoking was still allowed in the casino and the the casino itself was located on the path to the theatre, so everytime you walked to /from the theatre you would smell this unpleasant fragrance.
Entertainment was good, great shows at the theatre, good music at the Atrium and other night shows.

We joined oly 2 shore excursion tour, the food night at HCM City and rural trip at Nha Trang, both were good.

Finally the disembarkation went very smooth too, their system to let the passengger to choose their get off time by themselves was very good.

Overall it was a very enjoyful trip for us, they had very kind crews, we also like the freestyle very much and wish to cruise with the Norwegian again sometimes in the future.
