Norwegian Cruise

Thursday, June 8, 2000
From the moment you step on board the luxurious Norwegian Star you can be wined, dined and entertained, or simply bask in the sun by the pool.

There are eight passenger decks and five passenger lifts on board, with 12 different grades of cabin, ranging from the Owner's Suite and the Penthouse to inside twin cabins, which have no windows or portholes.

The 400 cabins sleep a maximum of 800 passengers — 60 percent have double beds and 87 percent are outside cabins.

Everyone has been catered for — there are four cabins with facilities for disabled people and five which interconnect for families. Nine of the cabins have balconies.

Dress on the ship is casual during the day and smart casual at night, but there is usually at least one formal night. Most cabins are non-smoking, and there is no smoking in any of the dining areas.

There are five lounges and bars on the Norwegian Star: the Midnight Sun, Top of the Star, Rendezvous Bar, Sports Bar and Champions Nightclub. All are popular for pre-dinner drinks and for getting together later in the night.

The Seven Continents restaurant has two evening sittings, and the Poolside Pizzeria is open all day. Le Bistro caters for 70 diners, but the cost of this meal is not included in the fare. Breakfast and lunch are served whether the ship is at sea or in port.

There is a large swimming pool and three on-deck spas, but if you don't want to sit in the sun, there are plenty of other activities on board. The Star Theatre has seating for 157, and there's a fitness centre, spa, beauty salon and duty-free shop. Other attractions include the Stardust Lounge, Monto Carlo Casino and the video arcade. You might even like to take painting classes, or if you feel like some exercise, there's a deck that wraps right around the ship.


From Sydney Harbour to Hobart Harbour.


Norwegian Star cruises range from seven to 14 nights, with prices starting at $1299 per person twin-share.
The ship's final Australian cruise departs Sydney on October 2, 2000.
Please note prices are valid at time of transmission.
