We were due to board the Norwegian Star at noon.When we arrived at the cruise terminal at about 11:30 am, there was already a fair crowd there. I had pre-arranged a wheelchair embarkation, but it was nowhere to be seen Eventually I joined the incapacity queue and in time a wheelchair turned up. Embarkation was a nightmare really.The authorities seemed to be panic-stricken that all passengers had the correct visas in their passports. They were taking all passports away for checking.The captain later apologised because checking in was so time-consuming.
Immigration on the other hand was a breeze. Suitcases were to be delivered to our cabins later
So off we set with only our carry on bags to discover our cabin and have lunch at the Buffet Cafe
After settling in to our cabin,we headed for the Topsider’s Bar to await the sailing party and to make sure the guest card worked for our complimentary drinks package!
