Additional details

Sail Date: Jan 2020
Cabin: Oceanview Picture Window

We picked the NCL Star as my wife and I have sailed on 4 other NCL ships with good experiences. The main reason for sailing was the excellent itinerary.

We generally found the Star to be poorly laid out with little or no "quiet" space where you could sit of and relax. There is no observation lounge as this was apparently removed to be replaced with more cabins.

GETTING ON AND OFF

Cabin Review

Oceanview Picture Window

Decent standard cabin.

Port Reviews

Montevideo

It was Sunday and most things were closed. Good to see the city but nothing special.

Stanley

Only an average score due to limited time because of the ships disorganised tendering process. Stanley was nice enough though!

Ushuaia (Tierra del Fuego)

Nice views with limited wildlife. Not worth the cost as the ship sails by the same views as the catamaran!

Punta Arenas

It was Sunday with most things closed. It is a short walk into town and a further short walk to the viewpoint that they push on the excursions. There is a free walking tour that you can pick up in the town square.
