Vibrant and lively as depicted by its colorful stars and stripes banner across the front of the hull, the Norwegian Star is a getaway cruise vessel that goes above and beyond to provide passengers with a world-class vacation. It was refurbished in 2018, as part of the Northern Edge Program, and showcases over ten fabulously upscale restaurants, a renowned day spa and salon, phenomenal Broadway-style entertainment, and staterooms that make all guests feel like royalty. Each stateroom has been renovated and now features contemporary decor and furnishings that complement the beautiful views you will see through your large picture windows. You can choose from multiple staterooms that range from a penthouse to a family suite, and no matter what stateroom you reserve for your trip, you will receive the services of a butler and concierge. Aboard this cruise ship, you will travel to places like South America, where you can sip on Pina Coladas while watching the sunset; into the heart of the Mediterranean, where you can feast your eyes on ancient architecture; through the Caribbean, where you can lay out on white sandy beaches and soak up the sunshine; or Northern Europe, where you can drink fine wine and explore the towns and villages.
As varied as the destinations the Norwegian Star sails to, this ship features restaurants that will take you on a culinary journey around the world. From Asian noodle bars to fine French fare, explore the extraordinary menu items available to you as you travel. This ship offers two main restaurants, Aqua and Versailles, which doll out traditional American dishes in an elegant setting. Each of these two restaurants has a similar menu, but very different appearances. If you want to kick back and relax poolside, Topsiders Bar & Grill is an excellent choice; this restaurant specializes in burgers, fries, and good ol' comfort foods. If you feel like splurging, Cagney's Steakhouse, Le Bistro, Atrium Café & Bar with The Bake Shop Treats, and La Cucina Italian Restaurant are just a few of the À la carte eateries found on the ship.

Paradis is a fun bohemian show where professional actors play out songs and dance moves of the Parisian culture. Vegas!
