Not long ago, we looked at the Norwegian Star Transatlantic Repositioning journey she’ll make in October, 2014 from Europe back to Florida for the winter. The price for Star’s journey from Miami to Europe on May 5, 2014 has now dropped in price and is an incredible deal for a once in a lifetime experience.
Norwegian Star embarks from Miami, Florida on a 14 night Transatlantic Repositioning cruise on Monday, May 5, 2014 at 5pm. Star arrives at Copenhagen, Denmark on Monday, May 19 at 7am. Along the way, she makes three port calls.
After leaving Miami, Norwegian Star spends a week at sea before landing at Ponta Delgada in the Azores Islands. Star is docked at the Portuguese port on the island of Sao Miguel on Monday, May 12 from 10am until 6pm. May is a comfortable month at Ponta Delgada with the average daytime high temperature being 19 Celsius or 66 Fahrenheit.
The rest of the week is spent at sea before arriving at Dover, England on Friday, May 16. Star is docked at the coastal city at the southeast corner of England from 6am until 6pm. Dover is situated facing France at the narrowest point on the English Channel. The city has a population of around 40,000 and is famous for the nearby White Cliffs of Dover.
The last port of call occurs on Sunday, May 18 at Helsingborg, Sweden. Norwegian Star is docked at the city at the southwest tip of Sweden from 8am until 6pm. Helsingborg is located at the closest point that Sweden gets to Denmark with the countries just four kilometres away from each other over the water. The city of 100,000 is deep in history.
For the time-being, an inside cabin on the Norwegian Star can be had for as low as $549 per person, based on double occupancy. With the additional $115.89 per person in government taxes and fees tacked on, the total price for two starts from just $1,329.78 for an interior stateroom.
Other levels of stateroom for this Transatlantic Repositioning cruise are reasonable, as well. An ocean view cabin can be had for as low as $699 per person. If you desire a balcony, these cabins start at $929 per person. A suite starts from $1,099 per person.
Norwegian Star is barely within Panamax sized limits when it comes to width. Meaning, it just squeaks into the locks of the Panama Canal. Back in 2000, this ship was intended to be dubbed SuperStar Libra in the Star Cruises fleet. Instead, she made her maiden voyage on November 19, 2001 as Norwegian Star.
She is a NCL Dawn Class ship with just one younger sister. Norwegian Dawn came into service in 2002. Star has a gross tonnage of 91,740 and is 294 metres or 965 feet in length. There are 15 decks on board, eleven accessible to passengers. Guest capacity is 2,348 with a staff of 1,083 crew members.
