Ports of call

Prince Rupert, British Columbia

3 out of 5
Lots of eagles. Almost no shopping. If shopping is your thing do it before Prince Rupert. Not much to see in town. This is perhaps a good time to take a nature tour.

Juneau, Alaska

3 out of 5
seems like a fun town, but only had a short time in port

Ketchikan, Alaska

3 out of 5
Take a hike in the near by forest for free. Very good and is free

Skagway, Alaska

3 out of 5
Very historic, take the free city tour offered by the National Park Service

Pros: Embarkation and debarkation carry your bags and walk off

Cons: Food in "free" dining rooms was very average and below previous cruise experiences

Recommends Norwegian Star? Yes!
