Our 2007 vacation - An Alaskan Cruise

Sail Date: July 14, 2007

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Suite

The ship was great. It was clean and they ensured they everyone adhered to the cleanliness policy. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Pros: On board entertainment, Freestyle cruising

Cons: Stop in Prince Rupert

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!

Food and Dining
Food was ok. There is a premium charge to eat at the higher end restaurants, which you are not aware of upfront. To actually pay a charge for soda is crazy, considering the cost of going on a cruise.
Service and Staff
Not sure I experienced above and beyond.
Ship Quality
Star is a good ship to cruise on
Cabin / Stateroom
Happy with the size of the stateroom. Problem was the location. We were on deck 11 and there were no rooms, but we heard loud noises every night. Try to avoid state room 11660
On board entertainment was great. Can't blame NCL for the excursions, since it its your choice.
Children's Programs
I was concerned about my daughter, who is 7, being entertained, but they had specific activities for children.
Juneau, Alaska
Best stop on the trip. Whale watching was great.
Don't Miss: There is a tram that goes up the mountain that you have to see the scenery
Prince Rupert, British Columbia
Nothing to see or do and the shopping is pathetic. Not sure why they stop there.
Skagway, Alaska
Took the Alaskan wild life experience excurision. Mesquito's the size of flies were everywhere. The excursion didn't live up to the price
Ketchikan, Alaska
Disappointed that I only saw two bald eagles and they were in an environment similiar to a zoo. Not much to see
