Refurbished in 2015, the Norwegian Star is a 12 deck cruise that revels in going against the grain. The Star sails to Antarctica, Europe, and South America on 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, and 14-night journeys. The Star departs from a variety of ports including Venice, Barcelona, and Rome. Such variety in cruising lengths and itineraries means you're guaranteed to find a cruise perfect for your family vacation.
Kids can swim the day away in the main saltwater pool on deck 12 complete with four whirlpools. The children's pool, Splash Down, boasts two rocket-shaped water slides and a hot tub just for kids. As with most Norwegian cruise liners, the kids and teens clubs, Splash Academy and Entourage respectively, are a huge hit. The kids' clubs set up activities, games, climbing tubes, and other fun events for youngsters. The teen club features a jukebox, video games, dance parties, and event nights.
For parents and older passengers, the Star has plenty for your vacation as well. Theater fans will enjoy the 1,110 seat theater which features magicians, Broadways style productions, comedians, and even a Cirque Du Soleil act. Daily fun activities are present all over the ship including morning trivia, movies, sports competitions, and poolside contests. For those who are able to stay up later, the Star offers a variety of spots to enjoy long after sunset. For parents, group babysitting is available onboard for those in need of alone time.
Each ship has a variety of fun activities for the whole family, so be sure to check your ship before you cruise to view what's available. Whether you're 8 or 80, there's no reason not to have fun on your getaway at sea; before breaking off into everyone's activities, enjoy some time together by planning to meet for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
This is the time to make memories and nothing could be more memorable than setting up a shore excursion for the whole family. Plan your shore excursions ahead of time for the best chance at booking your top selections.
*Please note it is often cheaper to book two staterooms or two connecting cabins instead of one large stateroom suite - plus it gives you a second bathroom.*
