Ship Facilities

Norwegian Star offers a whole host of complimentary dining, including two main dining rooms plus on-the-go choices, casual cafes, grills and help-yourself buffets.

Menus change daily in the main dining room, Aqua, so you can eat here every night and never be lost for choice. The second main dining room is Versailles and is reminiscent of the famed Palaces of Versailles in Paris. Offering both contemporary and traditional dishes, this main restaurant will always leave you wanting to come back again and again.

Enjoy freshly-prepared noodles, authentic soups and wok-fried dishes at Ginza Asian Restaurant or Irish pub classics at O'Sheehan's. The indoor buffet, Garden Cafe offers an immense selection of international and family-friendly options. Alternatively, head to the Topsiders Bar & Grill, a casual spot offering burgers, hot dogs, and the like, as well as al fresco seating if weather permits!

Widen your palate further and choose from one of the speciality restaurants onboard for a surcharge:

  • La Cucina - where you can enjoy the flavours of the Tuscan countryside
  • Teppanyaki - go oriental and try flying shrimp and onion volcanoes and other authentic Japanese Hibachi cuisine
  • Le Bistro - a French Restaurant hosting intimate dining, similar to a Parisian Cafe setting
  • Sushi and Sake Bar - for delicious sushi freshly prepared in front of you
  • Moderno Churrascaria - a Brazilian steakhouse with great cuts of meat and succulent skewers
  • Atrium Cafe & Bar - the perfect spot for some people-watching and more casual cuisine
  • Cagney's Steakhouse - an all-American meat joint for great steaks and tasty sides

Onboard Norwegian Star it's showtime all the time. Transporting you to one of the hottest clubs of the 70's, spend your evening in 'Band on the Run', for an exciting mix of soaring melodies and disco sounds to sing along to. Alternatively, tune in to 'Paradis', a visual feast for all of the senses that will give you a glimpse into Parisian culture. This mysterious, urban show is not to be missed. 'Vegas! The Show' is a fun performance depicting snippets of the history of Vegas, including some of the many great musical acts who have appeared there. And finally, we have 'What the World Needs Now', another musical production celebrating the songs of Burt Bacharach.

If you’d prefer to simply grab a drink, there are a number of bars to check out. For a sophisticated tipple, you'll love Gatsby's Champagne Bar offering a premium selection of drinks and caviar, or head to Sugar Cane Mojito Bar for some refreshing cocktails. The Sky High Bar is another innovative spot, located outside and serving some tasty, refreshing frozen drinks.

There's also Star Club Casino Bar so if you're feeling lucky, try your hand at Roulette, Blackjack and other slot machines and table games here. For an even livelier evening head to the Bliss Ultra Lounge, which features a full dance floor that will keep your feet moving well into the night.

Kids will jump at the chance to play in Splash Down Kid's pool, which features slides and a hot tub. They'll also find lots of fun at Splash Academy which provides arts and crafts, creative theme days and active games for 3 to 12 year olds, while teens have their own hang out area where no adults are allowed! During the day they can play air hockey and table football while in the evenings the club turns into a disco where they can meet new friends. The Video Zone is sure to keep anyone amused, where you can race cars and fly jets (simulations of course) and is a great place to get the family back together again.

Spa and Fitness

There are plenty of opportunities to keep up with your exercise regime onboard Norwegian Star. Why not rack up some laps at the indoor lap pool, throw some hoops in the basketball/volleyball court, or take a walk or jog on the running track. The Barong Fitness Centre is also open long hours and offers a gym and exercise classes daily, perfect for anyone looking for a more serious workout.

After a busy day, find your bliss at Mandara Spa for treatments aimed at rejuvenating the body and soul or spend the day in the Spa Thermal Suite for total wellbeing. From the thalassotherapy pool to the steam room, there are ample ways to totally relax onboard.


Norwegian Star has enough activities to fill every minute of your holiday. If you feel like having a calmer day inside, browse through the well-stocked collection of books in the library or surf the web and keep in touch with family in the internet café.

The main pool onboard has two hot tubs and ample room to catch those rays. Meanwhile, you'll find the perfect gift in The Galleria Shops, which offer an extensive selection of specialty gifts and brand named products.

Customer reviews for Norwegian Star

Too much reliance of the slow tenders - long waiting times, less time at the location. Entertaining fairly poor. Food was fantastic - even the garden café buffet. Service was very good. Resorts crowded with up to 5 cruise ships in at the same time. Overall, a good holiday, but could have been better.

We enjoyed the food and the kids club. We were disappointed that there was only one (small) swimming pool, which was high in chemicals. We should have checked before we booked but we didn't think that a ship cruising the Greek Islands in the school holidays would only have one pool. It was also very loud by the pool - music blasting all the time. Even around the promenade deck there was always music playing. Why? Perhaps catering for the USA market? Our cabin very comfortable apart from the sofa bed which was way too small for an 11 year old.

My friend and I were very impressed with our cruise. Everything was excellent, the staff, food, excursions.
